robber coverage
 n.— «Lions had success deploying what’s called “robber” coverage. That’s when safety Barron Miles drops down in an alley in front of deep-zone defenders, but behind the underneath zone, or sometimes, man-to-man defenders. That kept Esks’ quarterback Ricky Ray uneasy all evening.» —by Gary Etcheverry 24 Hours Vancouver Aug. 8, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
