    What kind of defense do we really run?

    I just got done reading an article about the Cowboys hiring Monte Kiffin with his Tampa 2 scheme. The Dallas blogger said its bend but don't break. I hear those terms dished out referring to our defense as well. So my question is. Do we run that type of defense?

    A bad one.

    One that didn't execute and then failed to make adjustments when certain things weren't working.

    We run the "bend extremely far back but only allow them X amount of points" defense.

    Let's go.

    Read & React, ala Rod Rust, J. Lynn, T. Lewis. This scheme has always stunk.

    The Bend-Don't-Break defense has more to do with a philosophy than a specific formation.

    BDB's idea is to keep all plays in front of the defense. Allow the short gains and limit the long ones.

    Monte Kiffin runs an aggressive defense ... blitz happy with a two deep shell. It's most certainly NOT BDB. And it might have a much harder time succeeding with the current receiver rules in place as he ran it in Tampa (depending on big Safety hits on the back end and such).

    Unfortunately this year X was more than we scored in key games.

    No we don't! The Tampa 2 is designed to prevent big plays of which we gave up more than any other defense this season! We run the "Misread and React Late if At All" defense!
