DB’s not ‘looking back’ for the ball is an inherent problem. You see it at all levels. We have seen it regardless of who was in charge of the D. It’s a combination of having that ‘sense’ from seeing the receiver’s eyes whether the ball is coming, and the confidence to take one’s eyes off the receiver, fearing the receiver changes the route and getting ‘lost’. It is the toughest position to play. You are on an island and the receiver knows where he is going, and at the same time you ‘peek’ to see if a run is coming your way. I was a DB in high school and two years at LU. It is a lonely position.
