One question from the game?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • There is a simple gameplan to beat the Jags, may or may not work but, run the ball on them because their pass D is ridiculously good.  Put 8 or 9 in the box and force Bortles to beat you.  Easier said then done but the book is out on them.  
    •   My only two cents was the fact that ASJ back was to this particular ref who was actually looking more at the goal line.  Either way, his view of ASJ rolling over was blocked somewhat.    As for the overturn, i hear you, it comes down to a judgement call on the movement and was it enough to show loss of control over the movement of the ball.   I am fine with not overturning the call.  
    • Yeah that can ruin a season. Rodgers is the best in the buz IMO
    • Wondering ;  Could the acquiring team agree to eat all or part of the dead cap as part of the trade?  If they have the space I don't see why not.  It's not like they have to resign Luck. 
    • This particular game may be the easiest one left on the schedule, so a win should be likely. However, the Jags are a better matchup against us than most people realize. Their defense is 100% legit now, it will make life very difficult for Brissett, he may not throw any tds Sunday. If we use Gore and Mack very effectively, use a 50/50 split along with passes sprinkled in, we can move the ball on the Jags. However, this will have to be done with laser like precision, which I don't trust the coaching staff to do. Fournette and Ivory will do well in the running and pass game, Bortles will look better than he really is, and the Jags will hold our offense to around 14 points IMO.   Jags 24 Colts 14
