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.

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.

    • And yet, the Colts only ran the ball 16 more times in the 1st half than they did in the 2nd half.  I would rather have defense, personally, but if the Colts have a chance to get a potential elite back I would not be upset if they took it.
    • Yeah, he's not perfect but his production has been top notch and that is on a D where he got very little help, he was the focus of most team's offensive game plans.
    • I agree with you that Swoope doesn't replace Doyle, Swoope would better replace an Allen moreso. I really like the potential in both TE's and am becoming more and more comfortable in signinging Doyle as our solid chain mover and solid hands guy and Swoope as our seam busting deep threat TE as he has really developed his play and understands how to use his body. Kelcey understands that as does Gates and Gronk. I'm not saying Swoope is going to reach those marks but he has speed, size and basketball blocking out mentality, all he needs is time. I like all our TE's except Allen really and that's mostly due to his price tag Vs his play and potential with replacements.   I'd sign both Doyle and Swoope and cut/trade Allen. Id probably be open to understanding that Moncrief gets signed away when his contract comes due if he wants #1 or high #2 pay as does Dorsett. Rolling with TY, these 2 TE's, pass catching dynamic RB we need to find and developing guys like Rogers and younger guys along the way while building and paying a strong defense and investing in the online. Can't pay every spot premium and some good talent is going to come and go. Let's hope we choose wisely and correctly more often than not from here on out.  
    •   Oh, God no! Not another New England Tight End. T_T
    • It seems there is a good chance the BPA may be a CB at 14/15. It's also probably the deepest position group in the draft.
