A while back when Kiffen and Dungy were still coaching.

hahaha Marinelli was a part of that but the true genious is easily Kiffen.

Tampa 2 is easier to type and say than the other one. That's really my only reason for wanting to keep it that way.

Precisely.

Because Tampa's defense is actualy good? I dont know...

07-08-2006 12:15 AM

Why would even bother asking for someone's opinion if you're just going to have smartass comments in the choices?

:roll:

Well considering that the "smartass coments" are factual I really dont see the problem.

Why not just say cover 2?

Because there's a difference. In the Cover 2, the cornerbacks and linebackers cover the lower fifths of the field, and the safeties cover the deep halves. In the Tampa 2, the cornerbacks and outside linebackers cover areas slightly larger (called fourths, although actually fourths of their combined areas), and the middle linebacker along with the safeties each cover a third of the deep area.

The Unseen 07-08-2006 10:20 AM

Here's an article that explains the difference, as well as some diagrams:

That and in the tampa 2 the DL is different.

Marinelli was the DL coach.

Also, I think since 2 of our defenses are considered among the best ever (98-99 and 02-03) made the Cover 2 what it is today.

Without those great defenses and great players, the Cover 2 wouldn't be as famous.

Do any college teams run the Cover 2?
