Great post. I couldnt agree more. Nice devils advocate disclaimer too, to keep the peace. If his job was never in doubt in his mind, that he and his systems were perfect, why did he implement the trap? Its great to see him adjusting, until a few weeks ago, all we really got a was a long overdue tweak to the PK.

So he made a tweak to the weakside of defensive coverage. Rest assured I think its simply a forward getting their ass back and playing defense. If anyone can express a bit more eloquently what is happening, go for it. I am curious.
