We hear it quite a bit over the course of the season when a team is forced to play a weak link in the defensive backfield.
Hearing it a lot in the last week on SiriusNFL about Eli Apple and the Eagles tomorrow. I realize they're also looking for flags because of his tendency to be grabby.
Can you guys that played/coached explain why, if a team can gameplan to roll coverage against a particular offensive threat, that we never hear about teams giving help or, especially on key downs, more or less baiting an offense on an important 3rd down when the tendencies and the targets that day says they're more than likely going to that area of the field?
Have never seen a team credited for doing it with all of the film study shows and videos that are available, so I'm making a possibly false assumption that it doesn't happen much.
