The play is designed for the TE to sit and wait, if the LBs flow to him the screen is a big play, if they leave him unattended he has an easy catch. We were in a basic look, there wasn't man coverage on the TE, Bradley also sits in a soft zone and let's the play develop.

It's a damn if you do damn if you don't play. If he jumps the TE, the RB has a convoy leading him down the field verse DBs. If he jumps the RB as he did, then the TE is open underneath our Safeties playing in Cover 2.

As much as many don't want to believe or acknowledge, coaches want tape of how players would react, hence the basic Vanilla D.
that's a good point...the broncos have rarely lined up in their Big Nickel this pre-season.
