Who Covers Megatron?

50 posts in this topic

Okay, we know no one can cover him. How will we contain him? Obviously we need to pressure the QB and bracket CJ.

Hopefully Davis will make a cameo appearance.

Our best option is to bracket him with Davis and Bethea if Davis is healthy. But they have a lot of weapons on that offense. Broyles just had a huge week against the Texans. The thing with Detroit is you never know which team is going to show up. They are very inconsistent.

That's why I'm glad they lost. Hopefully they'll be discouraged since they're out of it.

I say you put 10 guys on him and have Mookie rush the QB.

In all seriousness, if Davis isn't healthy, then no one even has a chance against him.

Getting knocked out of it makes them mad for awhile. They'll want some kind of revenge first. I'm not liking it. Maybe I'll be wrong... maybe.

Knowing Detroit, they'll be more like "Well, we are out of it. Might as well go and injure as many of their players as we can"

Probably Davis they said on the pre-game he was really close to playing today so I would expect him back next week.

For what it's worth today Gordy has a really nice game which means Gordy, Butler, and Vaughn have all looked games and looked bad in games which tells me the are all kinda enh players. Decent guys who aren't good enough to be long term starters but can have a nice game here or there during the season.

Yeah, no one got abused like against NE. Mainly because of the pressure. At least the game is indoor so our pass rush should be effective.

I would bracket him and play zone. Detroit is a curious team. They can look great at times, and really bad others. They are pretty much done playoff wise so I hope they have already "checked out" ...

I think the better option is to have Freeney and Mathis get to Stafford and not let him throw it to Megatron in the first place. No matter what coverage you play against Johnson he's going to make big plays if you can't get to Stafford. With that said if you get Stafford like any QB he'll make mistakes.

Its got to be Vontae Davis.....

................we have no other answer....but GoC is the man...We have to hit and hurry the passer ......they dont run the ball all that well..

Bottom line...we have to score 30 points

I am wondering who covers Avery, Hilton, Allen, Fleener. What 2 guys cover Reggie. I think Vontae and Bethea will try to contain Calvin Johnson.

I know this, we better not do that double DB at the goal line of the Lions are in that. It is the worst coverage possible. Stafford just has a WR/TE go to the soft spot the DB leaves open because hes going up to help cover Megatron.

I think all of our ex CBs are playing pretty well with their new teams.

I've been hit and miss picking colts games this year, but I see a fairly close, moderately high scoring game. Somewhere in the vicinity of 31-28. I have to give the nod to the home team (Detroit), but like has been stated....just depends what Detroit team shows up. I think it will be an exciting game regardless.

If that's their only TD that would be great. A while back I posted 'who will cover Gronk'. The answer was no one, but they (NE) have more weapons and a great QB. Detroit has a good team, but very inconsistent.

This would be a good game for Fleener, Davis, and Chapman to play in.

This is true. i mean if he was a RB... i would probably be more concerned. the guy has what 4 tds this year? i think its the approach of CJ will get his targets... we just can't let everyone else beat us. its like looking at Reggies numbers all these catches but 3 scores. but it's Hilton, Allen putting up the points we put too much focus on CJ we will see Young looking like Flash 80...

That has shades of the classic Chuck Norris joke. That aside, I think the major key here is to put constant pressure on Stafford. Keep it coming from all sides and hopefully keep the ball in front of us. Megatron is a monster, but if we put all of our focus on him, we are in trouble.

Agree with everything you said.

All sides would imply a push up the middle - something we haven't really been able to do all year.

I really would love to see Chapman get some burn against Detroit. He was a virtual immovable force with

one bad wheel. Maybe he could actually get some push with two good ones?

I know he's playing against higher caliber linemen, and he's only going to be a spot player until he gets

into game condition, but if he could play on some downs he may be able to provide something we need this game.

-d.

Chapman was never really a 'pressure' type of player. He's more of a run stuffer who can make you use two linemen to occupy him.

I think we're in the 4-3 a lot more than the 3-4, but he has to be an upgrade over what we have.

Nobody. Just double team him at the line of scrimmage like you do with a gunner on special teams. :)

I know you're joking, but I wonder why we just don't hit him coming off the line. At least it would disrupt their timing. After bumping him, the S could then rush the line because he'd be useless in pass coverage at that point.

In reality, if he gets 150/2 TDs, it would be fine if we shut everyone else down.

Dont give Stafford passing lanes. Megatron can be rendered less potent if we tip Stafford's balls or harass him in pass rush. That should be our No.1 goal. Make Mikel Leshoure beat us. I'd rather give Leshoure 70 yards than Megatron 150 yards.

Playing indoors on turf helps us as Freeney and Mathis are so much mofre effective on the faster fields.

We've got to find a way to harass Stafford all game long, otherwise we can't stop their offense. King of the Obvious, I know, but that's the key in this game.

    • Yeah, my wife would agree with you. She wants to move to Gulf Shores Alabama. We vacation there from time to time. 
    • I am not sure Whitner would be beaten out by Geathers... Whitner has a solid career of playing at a high level.. Geathers has been a fill in and for me was our biggest single question mark in the secondary this year;  We'd be MUCH improved with Whitner on board and let the best player start.  I wouldn't count Whitner out on that battle.  
    • Fact: Castonzo was lousy last year by his own admission.   Fact: We have a rookie Center who hasn't had a single live practice yet.  How often do people talk about the reality that you can't really learn much from OTA's and No Pad Practices?  Fact: We had Reitz last year as well as Mewhort (one of my favorite players) but the line was still lousy anyway. Fact: Thornton has not performed to date and is injury prone.  And to even mention Harrison's name PROVES we are in deep trouble if he EVER sees the field again as a starter on the O Line because he was by far the worst player on our team who saw action last year on the O-Line.     Look, everyone could play amazingly and we could have the best line in NFL history.  But history suggests if 4 of the 5 starters come back from last year's terrible performing bunch AND the fifth is a rookie who hasn't played a down or even had a padded practice yet, it is hard to suggest we are improved over last year.  There is no evidence let alone proof.  You guys are all hoping these guys outperform what they did last year.  That's fine, but it means nothing until and unless they do it.  Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.   This is closer to that than a major upgrade to our O-Line.  I would have expected 3 new superior starters at C, RG and RT as compared to who started last year with a solid back up option at LT if Castonzo fails again this year.  THAT would be clear cut improvement.     Of course we all want the O-Line to play better.  I hope that Clark impresses and moves into a starting spot alongside Kelly who also impresses and kicks but.  THAT would be a start.  I also know a lot about Reitz.  He went to my high school and I am a fan.  But he's getting older and until recently was seen as depth, not starting level talent.  Reading about Kelly and all the accolades leaves me asking "based on what?" We'll learn a little during training camp and Pre-Season, but the truth will really only come in live action against Detroit.  It's just as legit to question whether we've improved as it is to say we have in fact already done so.  Let's have some hard evidence before saying "problem solved."
