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.

    • Colts will rely on the draft instead of being big free-agent spenders
      Indicator a re-tear is 30% more liklely to occur,   I am not sure how it may or may not have affected the second rehab depending upon type of graft and rehab routine etc...  I think  the team  decided early to bring him along more slowly and shelve him all of 2003.  They had Travis Henry.      USA Today was a couple months after injury, in 2003 still within the initial reports time frame where everyone was still reporting the PCL tear. and the story wasn't wasn't as detailed.  The Baxter was a detailed report from a Rehabilitative Therapy firm in August of 2014 specifically on his case.
    • The next team for Peyton manning????
      I keep reading he has till March something to announce yet NFL network last night on the news scroll said Elway says its not up to us and Peyton can take the time he needs to decide   I hope he retires in perfect fashion      If he announced it it would of upstaged the win for tea mates, as per many news outlets
      PM didnt want anythiong to be taken away from all just enjoying the win
    • The next team for Peyton manning????
      I hate it when they bring up the 1 & dones or choke   He took the team multiple times to leads with or without late drives to get that lead only to see the defense or special team & / or coaching decisions to ruin it with less than a minute left sometimes less than 40 seconds if remember right , Thats all u should have to ask of your QB   case in point   Vs jets late drive gets lead with  1 minute left + / - 10 - 20 seconds   we kickoff , special team allows for 2nd time in game backup returner cromartie a 40-50 yard return, Jets get some yards , 30 seconds maybe left , maybe less time too , Jets look like they  are going to take long  FG with kicker that has poor % from that range , Caldwell calls time out, Jets now can reconsider and plan a play, defense allows Sanchez no less to make a throw and easy FG from what the 18 or with 18 seconds left -    Great special teams , great D , great coach call all in last drive of game for a loss   Know exact description maybe wriong but its pretty accurate account of what happened   Just take same wash  rinse , repeat a loss , again not his fault   Here is hoping Colts staff can see what could of been and what is needed to do for Luck   BUILD A COMPLETE TEAM , thats 1 with balance, doesnt need # 1 O or D but really good on both sides of the ball   Elway turned the team 180 degrees in 2 years to win SB    Hate him if u want but he saw an issue and fixed it, LEARN COLTS STAFF< LEARN u squandered alot of Peyton years, dont do it to Luck, QB's like that dont always come back to back
