Re: Blitz Packages?
polamalu has an achilles injury, and while troy at 80% is better than just about every other safety in the league he is not at the level we are accustomed to seein (and im talking about a lawrence taylor level where he can compkletely dominate and dictate a game).
as for the blitz's i think people are losing sight of dick lebeaus core philosophy whith his fire zone "blitz". it is about creating maximum pressure while sending minimum blitzers and having as much coverage in zones as possible.
it is the most proven way to get after the passer while hedging your "bets" and having maximum coverage behind the line.
we are not a team that sends 5-7 guys on every single play. never have been, never will be.
