Never apologize for asking an in-depth X and O question about the defense!
Yes, I think this is very possible as many of us have surmised Chung will be the run stopping SS while Harmon will be the pass stopping 2nd FS and they’ll rotate based on the game or down.
So yes, there’s a world where you have Harmon and McCourty both playing the back end, perhaps in a Cover 2 shell to keep it simple. Then there’s certainly a place for putting Chung in the box with them, perhaps along with a slot corner like Arrington, maybe Dennard.
That’s a pretty solid dime package with speed and coverage skills on the perimeter and toughness/tackling on the inside.
What will the Pats do week-to-week? I don’t know and neither does the opposition. They have a lot of tools in the toolbox on both sides of the ball to do whatever BB sees fit to win the game.
But trying to put either squad in a box at this point is useless. Just know they can do almost anything with the guys they have.
Check out my sister’s account of attending the Patriots premiere this past Monday on behalf of the blog. I’m pretty jealous she got to meet a ton of the Pats and take a lot of pictures with them.
I’ll have an exciting promotional partnership to announce soon that will include a ton of awesome giveaways for my readers this season. This was just the first part of it!
