So…my thought process is they don’t worry about spying the QB. Obviously. They’re trying to rely on their DEs to contain instead.
At this point I kind of agree with the thought process. Spying takes someone away from coverage or run support on a team that desperately needs those… It must be the lions thought process because they’re not doing it at all.
Let the QB get the yards w/ their legs and hit them if you get the chance.
Such a double edged sword. When your LBs and S are fast and can close distance quickly, it helps SO much. Also - if we were better in the middle, they’d be getting flushed out of the pocket instead of running right up the got more often than not.
