There are a lot of different things that we might do during the course of the game.
I have described a few different ways we combat the classic 2-receiver route or one of its variation.
Another thing we might do is when both main receivers are on the same side; we could let one CB releasing his man to jump the underneath route.
The safety and the other CB play deep over the top.
The safety could be guarding the outside or inside portion of the field, depending on the situation.
That doesn't have anything to do with what we were talking about....
I think everyone knows we don't come out and play pure man to man the whole entire game...
