Scott Chandler TD (1:41): Eric Berry is sitting in the box spying on the QB/ covering the underneath patterns
Stevie Johnson TD (2:12): Eric Berry is playing man coverage on Scott Chandler rather than actually being played at SS where he can make plays in the middle of the secondary (where Stevie Johnson ran across)
This needs to stop right now, its not fucking working. If Eric Berry is gonna be in man vs Antonio Gates, Dallas Clark, Zach Miller, Jacob Tamme, and Jermaine Gresham then fine. But if the QB is passing the ball across the middle of the field beyond the , he needs to be lined up at SS so he can roam. And he needs to get the fuck out of the box in the base 3-4. Having him line up in the box prevents him from getting a good burst at the ball carrier and having the time to diagnose the play. Hes not Yeremiah Bell. Hes 210 pounds and he can cover the hell out of the pass. Crennel needs to stop fucking blitzing him into the chests of offensive lineman who weigh 100 more pounds than he does. This is just ridiculous. It wasn't working during the preseason so the fact that Crennel is still trying this during the regular season after seeing how successful he was at SS during his rookie season is beyond asinine to me.
