You can still blow a receiver up. Kj was lauded for blowing up a receiver earlier this year, so did Jjo... happens all the time. You can not hit the reciever in the head. You can not launch yourself into the receiver, you can not use the crown of your helmet. Keep both feet on the ground, aim at center mass, blow the mutha up!!!!

I'm not saying that it doesn't work, what i'm saying is that it's not likely to be as effective a strategy with an upper echelon qb/wr combo that have tons of chemistry together like Rodgers/Nelson/Jones/Jennings. Especially with them still gashing us with the run like they were doing.

Besides, both of our cb's had already been beat deep, Rodgers just missed the 1 on KJ's side on the 1st series. Once that happens, you know it's gonna linger around in their heads for a while & they'd be hesistant about attack slants.
If you're going to play your safeties up, you're better off playing off the receiver. If you've got them 3rd & long, you're better off playing a 3 deep or quarters, where your corners play off the line.

Playing off the line is not bad technique. Giving the receiver a cushion is not bad technique, you just can't make that blanket statement regardless who the QB is.

You've got to mix it up. Regardless if it's Revis playing against Rodgers, there will be times when he'll play off the receiver. That's just football.
