Ryan on Bart Scott’s rough coverage play Dan Leberfeld
In Cincinnati, Bart Scott was beat by RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis for a gain of 18, on a pass over the middle, on third-and-ten. What happened?
“We made some technique errors,” Rex Ryan said. “One in particular, we’re playing a two-man scheme, Bart (Scott) has been with me for 100 years and he let the guy inside. That’s the one thing you can’t do. He’s trying to get a good hit on the guy and lets the guy cross his face. He’s going to get separation anytime that happens in two-man and that was a huge third-and-10, a big play in the game. I’m just picking on that one example on third down when you can’t have that. Especially in the third-and-10 situation, we have to be able to get off the field in that situation.”
