NFL analysts break down squirrel’s zone coverage technique
WE HAVE A SQUIRREL CHASE

It’s preseason football, and fans of the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles realized they hated watching it when a squirrel ran onto the field in the middle of their game on Thursday evening.
The little guy hopped around the playing field for a brief moment before heading for the sidelines, and the moment brought about a fun off-the-cuff moment for the NFL Network analysts, who had this little exchange.
— See where he squats? He squats in the perfect place.
— Oh yeah, right in the zone coverage.
— He’s a little tired. Can he move? Let’s see if he can move. Oh! Man! Did you see that get-off?
— He sat down, it’s like zone coverage, right? He sat in the middle of the zone.
— He squatted right in the middle of the zone.
— Now, that’s being coached.
The problem is, the squirrel’s athleticism prompted wishful fans to call for him to switch positions.
Specifically, many angry fans called for the squirrel to take a spot on their respective teams as backup quarterback.
