Talking to NFL analysts, they would tell you it's very hard to cover receivers for an extended period. Give an NFL QB enough time and he will find an open receiver. And it's not like we have a group of All Pros on our backfield. So our coaches knew we are thin on talent in our secondary but don't put any pressure on the QB to check down or to scramble. This is a pure coaching mistake after mistake. I like Campbell but he screwed the pooch on that one. I hope he learned. Oh wait, he did the same thing 2 weeks later. OK.

"talking to nfl analysts?"  you got troy aikman on speed dial, bro?  good to know.  lol.

Granted this is true, as far as it goes. But any decent NFL team will also burn you if they correctly anticipate the extra man coming on the rush, and those plays often often go for 6. It's not quite as simple as just sending more guys because you can't get pressure with 4. In the end there is only so much you can scheme to cover for poor personnel.

Just play it the same as 1st and 2nd downs. Aggressive. There's a reason we had them in 3rd and long and 4th and long. Or you can change the defense up and play very passive. Which is what we did to lose the game.
