We used it alot dude. Elam played like a whole quarter straight. Watch the tape.
Don't you remember Gruden asking why Haley didn't want to make Tamba and Houston play LBer?
It was more 3-4 than the rest of the games for sure but, we were in the 2-4-6 half the time.
Romeo uses zone alot. Traditionally, he has used zone coverage more than man. I'm not sure where you are coming from there. He had the most success with really good zone corners.
