One question from the game?

13 posts in this topic

Why was Cassius Vaughn on Calvin so much? I thought Vontae played stellar today. He is our number one and can' t figure why he wasn't on Calvin more.

P.s. I do realize Davis was on him on the touchdown catch

Ditto, did Butler cover him at any point?

Maybe they figured they might as well use the better CBs in someone they could cover and offer Vaughan up as the lamb.

Some defenses put their best corner on the #2 receiver and roll their coverage around the #1 guy

I know the Ravens used to do this and I think the Jets still do it. Not sure though cause I recall Revis was on Moss a lot.

Actually I believe it was initially Butler that was on Calvin for the TD pass, who than backed off and Davis grabbed him.

he was just coming back from injury so they didn't want him doing too much

I suppose it may have not mattered because he is Megatron, but Vaughn was consistently getting abused

Yeah it really wasn't Davis's job to cover Johnson on that TD play. I believe it was Butler, who then rolled off and left Davis to chase after Johnson.

Before the game the Colts said they weren't going to cover Meg with anyone specifically. They were going to play their D and cover him on which ever side of the field he lined up.

I agree with the posters above (and you) Davis is our best CB but he's probably not 100% yet.

The Rams do this with Finnegan, use him as a joker CB. I'd prefer we keep Vontae on their best WR.

      Thought the same, don't see Billings as a 1 gap player...  maybe I'm wrong but...
    • US Appeals Court Reinstates Brady's Suspension
      Because one circuit court (8th) would have then (if they do so) vacated an arbitration award from the NFL, and another circuit court has confirmed an award for the NFL in an arbitrated case.  It one of the main responsibilities of the Supreme Court.  Either the CBA protects the sovereignty of the NFL in its punitive actions decided by an agreed upon binding process, or it does not.  It can't be both. That's where the Supreme Court comes into play.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circuit_split#Resolving_circuit_splits_at_the_Supreme_Court_of_the_United_States

      How?   Kelly is slightly bigger, has longer arms, moves better, has more range. He is a better blocker in both phases right now.   What does Martin do as well or better than Kelly?   Martin is probably good enough, and another combo of first/second round picks with Martin in the second would have been fine, most likely. But Kelly is the superior prospect.

      Whoa!  You went way too far Smonroe.   Morrison came off of major injury this year.  Watch his 2013 and more importantly 2014 tape to see what he's really about.  This year he was visibly heavier and slower due to injury.  At his peak he was a lean fast MLB in more of the Freddie Keiaho or Cato June type.  My point is he was a zone guy with good speed and sure tackler.  Our scheme is totally different.  I can't say whether he will accel or get exposed in our man heavy scheme.  Only time will tell.  But at his peak he was a much faster ILB/MLB than we've had in awhile.
