That play was not his fault. We were in a Cover 2 basic Vanilla look. The OLinemen disengaged and the RB turned for a screen, both Bradley and WW jumped the screen. 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.
I need to go back and look at that again but it seemed odd that he would position himself next to WW when it doesn't look to make sense. WW is already in that space and it isn't a run so you know Wilson is throwing it. He knows WW is there and unless he takes off to his left, there is no reason to take the same position as WW.
