Default Safety-Defensive Scheme

So during Tricky Dicky Smith's tenure in our fair city, both Safeties’ were supposed to do kind of the same things. The Safeties were supposed to be interchangeable, if I remember correctly they were just assigned to each side of the field, sort of like "Zone Safeties".

I thought I heard that Bush's scheme was similar in this regard. So now that we have Pollard, who is obviously more of a true Strong Safety, have the Texans changed the scheme at all? I must say I think that Pollard's coverage skills seem to be better than reported when he arrived.

Has anyone heard if the Texans have adjusted to his strengths/weaknesses, or have the Texans gotten away from the "Zone Safety" concept since Bush got the nod as DC?

I agree. Pollard's instincts in zone coverage seem to be particularly good. It's a rather low bar, but Pollard has given the Texans the best safety play they've ever had.

Thank you, Scott Pioli and Todd Haley.

Todd Haley apparently thought Tony Gonzales, Bernard Pollard, and now
Larry Johnson didn't want to win. He', like Mangini, is an ass.
