2008 D vs. 2010 D?


I don't know about you but I didn't watch or purposely avoided all SB coverage yesterday...now I am back with some questions...I am wondering what is the difference between the 2008 D and the 2010 D. From what I can remember the 2008 D was much harder to pass the ball on and got off the field better on 3rd downs. The same can't be said for the 2010 D and I think ultimately cost us the SB, along with the 3 turnovers. The fumble to me was the most costly of the three.

To me William Gaye who had been playing well and McFadden were horrible in coverage, everything was soft and no bumping the receivers off the routes.

For the most part the players are the same and it's the same D coaches. So my questions are:

1. Have teams perfected the spread O ( as Michael Irvin called it, the blueprint against the Steelers D).

2. How do we overcome this now?
