Aside from the QB disaster, the biggest weakness for the 2011 Argos was the secondary. Last year`s coverage scheme was to give opposing receivers a 7 to 10yd cushion and make teams drive the length of the field for a score rather than getting beat deep for a quick strike. The results - - or lack thereof - - were completely predictable. Opponents controlled the clock with high percentage passes. Add in the terrible tackling attempts from LBs and DBs and you can understand why 2011 was a complete train wreck in Toronto.
Argos have now cleaned out 60% of the deadwood from last year
s secondary. Looking forward to seeing Parker & Shell perform in BC. Ill stand by my assessment from last year that Parker is useless in anything other than the softest of zone coverage schemes. No surprise that Parker went scrambling out to BC to try and hide in Stubler`s scheme after Toronto said thanks but no thanks to his return .
After his demotion from Defensive Coordinator, Orlondo Steinhauer has gone slithering back to being the DB coach. I wondered last year if Steinhauer was running that scheme to protect his old buddies Parker, Pile and Younger from being embarassed in man coverage or if it was just that he didn
t know how to implement anything other than the weak zone coverage. Probably a bit of both. But if he cant figure out how to run something more aggressive this year, my guess is Steinhauer`s next move will be out the door.
