Tapp in the Nickel PackageYesN

In Danny O'Neil's Seahawks Blog , he finishes his observations of Training Camp practices with an interesting note.


"Changes on Tapp: Seattle showed one of the first signs of new wrinkles on defense, using a nickel package with three down lineman -- including Cory Redding who moved inside to tackle -- and defensive end Darryl Tapp lining up without his hand down, faking a blitz, and dropping back to cover the tight end."

What do you guys think of this? I would like to know who was on the other side but I think it is interesting using Tapp as a decoy and in coverage. He does have more INTs than Leroy Hill. I hope this means this is the end of the undisguised  3rd and long 6 or 7 man blitz that John Marshall rewarded to opposing offenses.
