First throw William Gay is lost in coverage, pressure makes sure that the pass cannot be completed
Jamell Fleming allows catch to James Jones in Off Man coverage. Not too much wrong with technique.
Rodgers to Finley for a first down on 3rd and Short. Cover 1, 6 man blitz. Rhodes in 1 v 1 coverage. Not much else to do there.
Fleming incompletion Cover 2 look, ball one hops into Nelson's hands, incomplete.
TD to Cobb. Cover 2 look. Peterson lined up over Cobb and drops into his soft, short zone. The zone the ball is caught in should be covered by William Gay, but Gay is being interfered with by Donald Driver on the play and cannot make the play at all. This block does not happen this play is blown up almost immediately. I cannot legitimately credit this to anyone on the Cardinals team. Bottom Line. Wilson "should" have made the tackle, but credit Cobb for putting on a very nice spin move in anticipation of the contact.
Incompletion to James Jones. Hybrid Cover 1 look. Lenon and Acho drop into interior zones. Man Coverage on the outside, one deep safety. Fleming gets far too deep in his drop, James is wide open for a complete pass and good yardage with a better throw.
Cover 1, double move route on Fleming, Jones makes an inside cut (As is expected by Fleming playing good man coverage technique with the knowledge his safety help is inside) but he is beaten by the second outside cut, Jamell gets turned around in coverage and allows Jones to create separation with a pretty good route. Good throw, Fleming does well to not allow too much YAC.
INT is either Cover 1 or Cover 3. Presnap switch between Rhodes and Peterson due to motion. I don't think this would happen in cover 1 which leads me to believe it is Cover 3, but then the deep safety flies down hard on the outside receiver running a short drag route. This is all happening on the backside of the play. We essentially end up with an over/under bracket coverage on one player, but I am not sure that is what was meant to happen. Seems like a broken coverage on the backside, though I am not sure whether it is Peterson's or Rhodes' fault and nothing came of it. Cobb should have caught the pass which was an OK throw from Rodgers.
Looks like a Quarters look in the secondary. Underneath routes will kill this coverage,should have been caught. Gay closes fast, he would not have prevented a catch (and could not have if he was playing the right technique) but would have made the tackle.
Offside on Acho is a 2 deep hybrid look. Zones on one side of the field Man on the other. Lenon in Man coverage on TE is the target of the throw that is aimed at the soft middle of the defense. Incomplete, Not Charted due to Penalty.
Cover 1 look, Schofield in coverage on Crabtree the TE. Ball should have been caught, those Schofield was not far behind in coverage
Line up and show blitz, 4 man rush comes.Cover 3 defense.Ball thrown to and dropped by Driver who is in front of Fleming in a deep third.
Washington and Wilson both blitz off the left edge of the defense, this is picked up well. Both Dockett and Acho drop into coverage. Quarters coverage on the back end with zones underneath. Achop is late to come off his original man and thus leaves space for the throw to Driver to be made and completed into the spot where Acho should have been. Keeps the drive alive even with the bad spot.
Man Cover 1 with a 6 man blitz. Cobb comes out of the slot giving him plenty of space to work to the outside vs Gay. Gay plays poor technique and allows Cobb to the outside rather than funneling him inside to where his safety help is. Safety is shaded as usual away from Peterson it just so happens that on this play it is also away from Gay. Wilson has not chance to get over from the opposite has. Perfectly thrown ball from Rodgers to complete the pass for the Touchdown.
Cover Three. Fleming in a deep zone, Gay in a short zone play side. Gay does not get lateral enough on the play to take away the outside breaking route from the outside receiver. Fleming is getting deep as his role as a deep third player says he should. Gay needs to do better.
First play thrown near Peterson is a smoke route to his side with Peterson responsible for a deep third in Cover Three, breaks downhill and makes a tackle for a gain of 1. Play looks to be a designed run.
Cover 1 seven man blitz. Rhodes gets within a whisker of a sack here on Rodgers, but the QB is not flustered at all, he knows he has the 1 v 1 matchup on the rookie that he wants.. Wilson is on the near hash in the deep zone, (Note shaded away from Peterson) he possibly could have been quicked to get over the top, but that then also leaves Gay without over the top help out of the slot. Fleming allows the free release in press coverage and gives up the outside (Not expecting safety help??) to use the sideline as an extra defender. In man coverage he cannot really play the ball until he sees the receiver do likewise. He may be a little late reacting to the ball but is in perfect position. Ball slightly underthrown allowing his receiver to stop sight and come back to catch the football. Fleming still almost gets a hand on it to knock it out.

Cover 3, pressure on Rodgers from Dockett (Who in his attempt to get the Rodgers destroys Schofields Ankle). Rodgers throws back across his body to Finley in the zone of Wilson. Ball is short and incomplete.
Cover 1 blitz. Peterson in Man Coverage on James Jones, manages to get a hand in a knock the ball away on the slant. He is playing technique to take away the inside breaking route and does just that.
Cover 2 rush four. Groves slow in getting to the flat. Throw towards the back in the flat is incomplete. Rodgers had a TD on a corner route if he saw the route coming open earlier. Was not under any pressure to throw either.
A Two Deep Zone coverage. Gay looks like he should be in a short zone, but sees no safety help over the top so sticks with his receiver. Rhodes did not have much chance to get over the top with the speed of the release of the throw. Ball is overthrown and incomplete.
Cover 4 or quarters coverage, Wilson clamps down on a crossing route by Cobb, this is the eventual target. Rodgers has an age in the pocket very good coverage on the back end forces an inaccurate throw,
Groves well and truly beats the RT off the edge to get a hit on Rodgers. Cannot tell who the target is (Listed under other), Peterson looks confused as to his assignment presnap.
Playaction rollout from the Packers, Gay bites hard. Looks like some form of Cover 2 zone.Peterson responsible for the flat beaten by a double or triple move route for 6 yards.
Playaction, Gay bites hard again. Cover 2 shell. Gay is caught well out of position, this allows his man to come free down the offensive left sideline. This draws the safety on that side down onto the man Gay is responsible for. That leave a huge hole in the area where Paris Lenon, responsible for a short middle zone is expecting to have safety help. The Seam route being run by Tom Crabtree goes directly into this hole for a big play. Lenon does not stick with his man well enough, but if Gay does not get himself well out of position initially then none of the chain reaction starts and even if Lenon allows the catch we have a safety there to make the tackle and get to live another down. (Charted to Lenon as man responsible for area, Gay is a fault for the play falling apart)
Arizona lines up with just four men in the box and not one of them with their hand on the ground. One of these men drops into coverage in a short zone/spy type role and two men lined up over Receivers (Acho and Adams) blitz off the edge. Cover 1 concept. Rodgers gets rid of the football to Cobb (Who Rhodes has in man coverage) who makes a catch for three yards.
Playaction, Arizona comes with a four man rush. Cover 1 look from the defense. Adams in 1 v 1 coverage with Cobb, with him stride for stride and manages to disrupt the football.
Cover 1 from the defense aligned in press man all over. Mike Adams in the slot 1 v 1 with Cobb again. This looks like the same route combo that beat Gay for the TD. Same technique from the corner. Wilson got over faster, so took away the over the top throw, attempt for a back shoulder throw falls incomplete.


All three of Campbell's pressures were among the first two drives of the football game. The only pressure recorded in the second half was the hit by Groves. Our starting OLB's combined for 0 total pressures in a combined 6 quarters of football (Schofield did not play the second half)

The lack of pressure this defense is getting is scary, but the coverage our DB's are providing is very good.

That's basically 2 straight weeks without more than 2-3 pressures, not sacks or hits, just pressures. That's incredibly weak.

Dockett is not himself since his hamstring injury. Calais is constantly double teamed.

Acho and Schofield have provided minimal pressure, and Lenon is on skates every other play.

That is just plain incorrect. If the OL double teams anyone it is Dockett. The number of times on Sunday that the Packers put five into routes and we came with five rushers (Meaning that we had Acho, Schofield/Groves, Dockett, Campbell and one other) in 1 v 1 matchups vs the Packers OL and Rodgers has 4 even 5 seconds to get rid of the ball is just plain not good enough.

Those players with the big pay cheques on the DL need to be able to beat one on one blocking.

Khodder, are you sure the Cobb TD wasn't against man coverage? Kind of odd how none of the LBs are even looking at Rodgers.

Pretty sure, but the fact that the ball comes out so quickly you cannot really get any indication from the LB's.

The technique from the corners suggest a soft zone coverage. On the backside of the play Jamell Fleming is looking at the QB.

It is one of those things that you can never be sure. The thought process still stands without that OPI that play never gets anywhere.
