Again, just because they play off the receiver isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's a technique that works well, even against the slant. The problem in the past, is that our corners weren't good enough to stop the slant working with as much cushion as was given. Then they weren't any good, playing press.

It's not about the QB. IT's more about the reciever knowing he's going to get blown up.

eh.... he used that same technique at different points during that game & held Brees in check for most of them. For whatever reason, he played those two drives poorly. It wasn't that he was off the receiver, but he wouldn't attack the ball.

Jjo has been using that a lot lately, I assume because of his groin. He can't run like he used to, so he's trying to get an edge.... cheat a little on the deep routes. If he were 100%, it would have been a totally different game & he'd have played it totally different.
