    The BR.com Explanation for Correa



    He couldn't figure out the Pees playbook? Imagine if Correa had to play for Rex.

    http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/...6-11e296acf9be



    The second-year linebacker said learning the playbook was the most difficult part of his rookie year, and it left him inactive and with a small defensive role. ...

    ...Second-year Ravens linebacker Kamalei Correa has talked to some of this year’s rookies about what they should expect in Year 1.

    His advice? Get in that playbook....

    ...Every rookie’s learning curve is different. For some, grasping the Ravens’ complex system is easier because it’s similar to what they did in college. It’s, in part, why Baltimore likes Alabama prospects. For others, such as Correa, it’s more difficult. He said his college defense was very different and the playbook was a lot smaller.

    Trying to learn the Ravens defense, shifting positions and adapting to playing special teams put a lot on Correa’s plate, and it left him shuffled to the back of the depth chart. It was a tough pill to swallow.

    “I’m always going to remember that I struggled the first year, that I wasn’t what everybody thought I was,” Correa said. “I’m going to put it in the past, but I’m always going to bring it up because it’s always going to humble me.”

    Correa said he’s been working a lot with Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees and Linebackers Coach Wink Martindale since returning to the Under Armour Performance Center this offseason. He’s learning his coverages, where he’s pushing to, where his help is, where his fronts are so he knows where to fit on runs. It’s the small details that mean so much, and allow him to have fun on the field.

    Reminds me of Arthur Brown. Great physical talent, a stat machine in college, just not enough between the ears to succeed as a pro. I think Correa will turn out better, though.

    He has to. Arthur Brown is now on his 4th team. He's barely played for any of them. He's a bad player. Correa must do better

    These guys have to be versatile or they catch them in sets and run hurry up against it, taking advantage of the mismatches. I really think he will improve this year

    Those curved edges are a little confusing.

    Anything flatter?

    LOL bt, I luv it! What Correa's playbook should be :
    Run towards the ball and (a) intercept it, or (b) tackle man in opposing jersey who has it.
    That should simplify it enough... Bc
