There’s different variations to cover 3. There’s some when the the strong safety rolls over the top of the corner and takes the deep third over the corner who’s responsibility is the flat.

In zone coverage you pass off receivers from your zone onto the next.

If someone runs out of the back of your zone you track them.

The flat has nothing to do with Marco. That's on the LB and you can see the LB pick him up before he notices Burrow is launching it. If he misses he misses then Marco can come down and they get a chunk play. But the supposed CB1 shouldn't stand there covering air while the opposing WR1 gets a running start at your backup free safety.

Then when reporters waited for him at his locker after the game he just ignored them and walked off leaving others to take responsibility. That's chickenshit stuff.

Someone didn’t read the link I posted for them.

Posted under deep coverage responsibilities:

In this example, the cornerback is responsible for the outside third of the coverage, which is measured from the sideline to the hash marks. In the middle of the field between the hashes is the deep middle zone defender's responsibility, and then outside the hash to the opposite sideline designates the opposite deep third.

Cover 3 Rules​

You must be registered for see images attach


Left Cornerback - Deep Outside Third

Right Cornerback - Deep Outside Third

Strong Safety - Curl Flat

Free Safety - Deep Third in the Middle of the Field

Sam Linebacker - Hook/Curl

Mike Linebacker - Hook/Curl

Will Linebacker - Curl Flat

And here’s a list of rules. Nowhere in the article does it say follow the other teams number 1 receiver.

As for the last part you mentioned, it has nothing to do with the play, but shows your agenda. Young player had a rough game against one of the leagues best and didn’t want to talk. It happens around the league. Hopefully he learns from it and works on getting better.

I know how it works. This is the very basics of cover 3 without any rules. No defense has rules that say "If your deep 3rd has nobody running into it just stand around, stare at the QB and let the WR1 burn your free safety."

I don't like anything about the way Wilson played it. Chase could easily have run a post behind Wilson and he would have had no chance. If you watch it back Chachere actually over commits to Wilsons side because he thinks that might happen leaving the field open for Chase to burn him on the deep over.

They both played it badly, but it starts with Wilson. He played it poorly, leading to Chachere playing it poorly. I don't even know what Wilson is doing from the snap. He starts off pretty much over Chase and immediately flattens out towards the sideline even though there is nobody there. He actively takes a worse position post snap than he starts with pre snap.

It's fine to disagree.

Where's he going on the snap here? For what purpose? He should be staying over the outside of Chase and Chachere on the inside and then he's out of the play.
