The Primary Flaw with Romeo's 2-Gap

A few have been asking "Why don't we switch to a 4-3" and most have been like myself and have been campaigning for a switch to the 1-gap.

Now, Direckshun has posted a nice breakdown of the difference between the two philosophies, and I'll link that later.

However, the 2-gap isn't a completely flawed scheme. To run it effectively in today's NFL, you need to have DEs like Tyson/Dorsey who are solid against the run but also can diagnose run vs. pass quickly and then provide an adequate pass rush (pushing the pocket or obtaining a double team while still progressing upfield).

For example, the Ravens and Mike Nolan (D-Coordinator for the Falcons) still run a 2-gap philosophy. (Nolan runs a hybrid 3-4 2-gap and a 4-3, but I can talk about that later).The difference is that while the Ravens run the 2-gap (albeit, having their DEs play the 4-tech instead of our 5), they utilize a fire-zone heavy concept. Meaning, they will pull DEs into coverage occasionally and bring pressure from safeties, nickel and dime backs. Their philosophy is to "Rush 5, drop 6".

For those that think our Defense sucks, you're entitled to your opinion but it is wrong. To those that think the 2-gap entirely sucks, you're wrong as well. The main problem with this defense IMO is the inability to get pressure from our base front (3-4 odd, DEs playing the 5-tech). To play our scheme effectively, you need smart DEs who can address the play quickly and accordingly. Simply put, our DEs are not smart enough or talented enough to do so in our base front. Granted, Allan Bailey is fine from our sub package (playing the 3-tech), but can't be relied on in our base front because he doesn't play well against the run or quickly diagnoses run v. pass enough to provide an adequate rush, much like our other DEs.

I know most will just see a wall of text, but this will probably help several understand some of our defensive flaws and why we struggle against the pass in our base set.

Cliffs:
1. Our 2-gap requires players we have not acquired; it can still be effective but is much more difficult to do than a 1-gap philosophy.
2. The responsibilities for a 2-gap DE and NT are much more difficult than those of a 1-gap.
3. I personally would like to see our team go to a 1-gap. Attacking defensive lineman are much better served than run-stoppers in today's NFL.

I know most will tl;dr, but if you disagree with it, post your thoughts. We have too much bitching on this site and not enough discussion about scheme, football philosophies, and concepts.

I mean, I'm sure that was the ideal situation. Smae reason we drafted Poe. And Bailey.

The fact is, Belichick was the guy who broke down D-Lineman for NE. Not Pioli.

And that is why we suck but have been marginally improving at getting an interior pass rush from our DL in sub packages (2-3-6 if BB is lurking.)

****, this is the 4th time I've posted this.

If we were to go to the 4-3, we would use Houston at the SAM spot, like Denver uses Von Miller.

i have a hard time figuring out which turd was the crappier draft pick by Pioli

Javier Arenas or Allen Bailey. Because they are both terrible in sub package

i have been siding with Arenas cause he took that stain in the 2nd ****ing round, over actual talent that could have helped this team

Javier is worse than Allen IMO.

There is still a chance for Bailey to productive just rushing the passer ( he showed flashes against NE, Pitt, and GB last year).

Javier, IMO is a lost cause. We've talked about this before (a good idea in theory bc you need 3 corners) but it hasn't worked. Boykin from GA would have been nice to have over Wylie, who hasn't stepped foot on the field.
Revisionist history though.

that Pioli's entire 4 years of drafting though, all Revisionist History.

Especially those 2009 and 2010 draft classes. Absolute Abortions. Dude is an awful scout/evaluator and tries to be smarter than he is by convincing people he picks these smart players that are better than actual athletic talent. And sadly, a lot of us bought into that crap philosophy he spews and without Tom Brady it translates to dog shit on the field because there is not enough athleticism/actual talent put out there.

He picks out role players.

Guys who can be average, or slightly above. They can contribute but aren't going to be making plays to win/change games.

Pioli has never picked a star (Houston/Berry non-withstanding).

in four years he passed over a lot of talent in the draft looking back.

a lot. like not even a monkey could **** up some of those picks. People on this forum where smarter at predicting the better NFL talent they would have hoped the Chiefs drafted. That's how sad it is. How good this team could have been if we had a GM with half a brain that did not care about his own ego/Patriots Tree garbage philosophies.


case and point: Jake O Connell is still on the 53 man Chiefs roster. a 2009 draft pick by Pioli. In year 4. Why. Why Why why why why

He got burned deep in NO, and Royal owned him Sunday.

He's another Pioli bust.

He's also the Thomas Jones of punt returners. If you need 5 yards he'll get you 12. If you need 20 yards, he'll get you 12.

Yup. When you really go back through the entirety of the drafts from 2009, you start to pull your hair out.

I mean, you go through every pick as if you're the GM and think of how it played out then. There are so many picks by Pioli that he should have been fired for, it is unreal.

Granted, you're not going to hit on every pick but wow. Taking DMC and Arenas over Gronk and Graham?

Agree completely. I had high hopes for Javier when he arrived here and the reports from UA coaches were high on him. He has been sub-par and I hope that whoever our GM is next year drafts a solid nickel who excels in man coverage in the slot. Menzies might be the guy but if Crennel is here, Menzie won't be playing that position, IMO. Not saying he'l be a good player, but if he's here he isn't replacing Arenas.

He(Menzie) won't replace him due to the philosophy and position he was drafted to play IMO.
