    hopefully our D-backs won't play 10 yards off the opposing teams receivers as well... that just drove me nuts in the '05 season when I saw them on tv, esp. the NU game.... if the offense can get some sustained drives and keep the D off the field, maybe this unit can overachieve and surprise people... new staff and new attitude, I like the blitz approach, hopefully get the younger guys some confidence and feel they are attacking instead of always being on their heels...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Something I think would be cool to see is our DB's jamming receivers at the line of scrimmage in order to give the guys rushing the passer a chance to get there.

    This has been a problem for a long while, and not just the '05 season. I can remember game after game of us talking about this very issue up in the stands.

    We didn't really have the personnel to do that last year. Hopefully we can this year with Bell.

    It wasn't as big of a problem in '05 as in '06 because we had a pretty good pass rush, our safeties could play, and we forced turnovers. Last year just hurt to watch.

    That is one of the cornerstones of tampa 2. You have to get the corners to jam the receiver and slow them down. Otherwise they will get into an open area of the zone quickly. When the receiver does get away, the corner MUST force him outside because of the soft spot in the zone.

    Re: Iowa State plans to blitz a lot this season

    The question is whether we have the personnel (since most of the holdovers are slight of build and recruited as cover corners) to jam receivers. Guess we'll find out soon enough!

    This is one of the things that has always looked like a penalty that gets called real inconsistantly. At what point does bumping a receiver become holding? KSU under Snyder was always very aggressive with their DB play, grabbing, shoving, holding, sometimes 10-15 yards down field. Sure they would get called for it once a game, but they would completely disrubt the other teams passing attack for the game. Small price to pay. I look at it as being the same as offensive holding: it is going on all the time, but there is a certain limit that you can't go beyond. I don't think ISU had to worry about getting called for being too agressive last year.
