How did Tebow beat the Vikings Cover 2?
Today, let’s talk Denver vs. Minnesota from this past Sunday, take a look at the Broncos’ “4 Verticals” route shceme and break down why this coverage was a bust that led to Tim Tebow’s TD pass to Demaryius Thomas…We talk about matchups all of the time and this route scheme is no different. With Thomas (X) getting a free release vs. a rolled-up CB to the open side of the formation, the Broncos have created a 2-on-1 situation vs. the FS in the deep half. Test his discipline to stay square in his backpedal to play over the top of two vertical routes…What do we have now? A busted coverage due to the route concept. With the FS driving to the middle of the field, the open side deep half (highlighted in white) is wide open. Too easy for Tebow and Thomas. Can’t let that happen in the NFL.
