...under Bob Sanders that I expect to see quite a bit of from Capers, illuminated here in a great write up on the evolution of the zone-blitz from Greg Cosell:
Have a defensive lineman and/or a linebacker take a couple of steps forward, initially showing rush. This immediately engages an offensive linemen, who sets to block what he's certain is a pass rusher. But then that defender quickly backs out, and drops into coverage. The result: that offensive linemen is left blocking no one.
I remember watching the Giants do this quite effectively against both the Packers and the Patriots two years ago and wishing Sanders would adopt something similar. My hunch is that Capers will do so.
