Default All hail the death of the 10 yard CB cushion

Jacques Reeves claims the CBs won't be doing 10 yard cushions any more.

My thoughts.

And a dance or five.



And a hail. Like hail yeah.

No more read and react. No more ten-yard cushions.

Hallelujah.

(Oh, and this should have been done last off-season)

Default Re: All hail the death of the 10 yard CB cushion

In related news, they are working with Reeves on his technique. If the kid can get better at his technique (like getting his head around to look for the ball) he could be one heck of a CB.

Good. I'm sick of that 10 yard cushion between Brandon Harrison and the guy he's covering.

What's not to believe? When you change defensive coordinators you usually change schemes... I like the way the defense is 'sounding' so far. Aggressive, no more read-and-react, and now no more 10 yard cushions for the corners.

This is the kind of scenario where, if it were to happen in Madden, you would throw your remote at the TV screaming "That's ****ing b*******!!!1! That would Never happen!" Still can't believe Wayne came down with the ball, Reeves had amazing coverage on that.

At least he's aware that cornerback doesn't mean all the QB sees in the corner is Reeves' back.

How did the 10 yard cushion idea ever get through to any team ever, ever?

I was custom designed with teams having far-sighted CBs wearing non-flexible neck braces.

Slow footed CB's letting slant routes go for 50 yd TD's.

As with all defensive schemes, you have to build on your strengths and try to circumvent your weaknesses.

In some situations, it is appropriate for the CB to give some cushion. But 3rd and 2 is not that situation. I honestly could not believe how many times our CB's were lined up 10 yds deep in 3rd and short situations last year.

This defense appears to have someone leading it who knows what to do.

Now it's just gotta' become a genuine reality on the playing field.

Default Re: All hail the death of the 10 yard CB cushion

Just talking or does this imply Hoke was not a technique guy?

Quote:
“(Gibbs) is a technique freak, and that’s what I need,” Reeves said. “I need to get a whole lot better with my technique, and I think he is going to challenge me at that.”
Pretty hard to point to any DB's getting better under Hoke. Interesting to see how Reeves and Bennett perform this year.

In what catagory?

Their defense as a unit was horrible against the pass and the run.
