I am far from a coverage expert and didn’t have access to the coach’s film on these picks, so I just did a very crude analysis of the coverage that Cutler was throwing into:
- 9 were thrown into double coverage
- 9 were thrown into single coverage
It’s interesting that half of the picks were thrown into what I’d call single coverage. One was picked by a DT, which I guess might count for 1.5 coverage. There were a couple of instances were I could barely recognize the coverage because a Bears receiver was barely in the frame. Some of the picks were straight up miscommunication. A lot of the picks appeared to be the receiver just not fighting for the ball. I didn’t count, but several were in Johnny Knox’s direction.
