    Playing Defense with Soft Corners

    Why aren't we covering those guys?! - Football Study Hall

    ...many teams continue to give receivers big cushions in their defenses and drive modern fans crazy with fear and frustration about allowing the offense to work down the field with the cheap "horizontal" passing game. The reasons that coaches still employ these alignments despite the seemingly obvious downsides of allowing "easy" short passes are multiple and some are less obvious. Here at Football Study Hall we're here to help you understand the non-obvious nature of football.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    LOL!

    If I had a quarter for every time some idiot on this board complained about "the d-backs playing 10 yards off the receiver" I'd be a very wealthy man.

    that's a cool site, especially with the X's & O's column; I wish more sports talk would involve these type of discussions - the game and how it's played.

    Yep, its a lot easier to keep the WR in front of you and make a play than to catch up if you get burnt downfield.
