Guess who was covering Avery on that final play?

Recommended Posts

No one covered him. It was basically prevent defense. Avery was by himself the whole time.

Lacey almost got an interception two plays earlier, by the way.

Ahh good ol' Lacey, with the "Almost" INT :D

Lacey may have been the one that should have made the tackle, but nobody was covering him for his route. He was the underneath man and the DBs were covering deep zones.

I thought he actually played a decent game.

Makes me wonder what guys like Lacey & Jennings could have done here with decent schemes and coverages.

Hopefully when we bring in more talent to the secondary. Our defense will be very good.

I'm pretty certain the Lions watched tape on Andrew Luck tackling people, and when they saw him running towards them with Avery, they said "we're good, you may have the endzone fine Sir".

Watch the play again, he was supposed to come up for Avery but decided to go further back in coverage

The point is, is that he defended the pass, preventing a completion.

Irrelevant to the point I was making, but nice try.

That's what I was going to say. It looked like the air was covering Avery on that final TD. I didn't see anybody running with him

Your point was that he never holds on to the interception. I got ya.

Didn't Lacey also push Luck into Florence on that interception? Luck may not have gotten to him in time to keep him out of the endzone... I think we should thank Lacey for that timely push.... it could have been a TD for Detroit. :)

Yep. Scheme and coaching. Guys like Lace and Tim would most likely thrive here now.

Now it is just Davis and that is about it. Butler had a good game against Jags and has been up and down since. Vaughn is just horrid in pass coverage.

Good practice going against Megatron though. Everyone else should be a snap. Oh wait, he's not the only Johnson we face, is he?

Funny how something as simple as a drag route ended up winning the game. That's what can happen when you actually use an outlet receiver instead of 5 go routes all game, Bruce

Hopefully we have a different scheme against Andre.

I know the thread is about Lacey.... but for what's it's worth, it struck me that Florence did a very nice job yesterday for detroit...

Seemed to be on a lot of Luck's 30 incompletions.... caught my eye....

    • Paul George looked depressed on the bench towards the end of the game. I want to bet he regrets getting traded.
    • Not a fan of Cato June in the 1st round, which I think is Roquan Smith's floor. Ceiling, maybe Thomas Davis.
    • No my comparison is that Peyton made it all the way back and played at an elite level despite his limitations. MVP, broken records, SB....Tiger has done nothing since coming back. The only similarity is the surgery...in a NON CONTACT sport! Given the comparison I will give Tiger some credit when he starts winning again. Minimum a major...until then it isn’t even close in my eyes. Like him or not I’m objective...but don’t crown this some type of major achievement until he ACHIEVES something. Just making it back to the tour to me doesn’t make them equal comebacks in my mind. Sorry Mark that’s my standard for greatness..Tiger was great...now he is just another guy.
    • “Well, we’re going to play him at defensive end right now,” Ballard told reporters. “We’re going to play him at right end. Really at the end of the day, even in the 3-4, you’re still in a four-man front. It’s the difference of putting your hand in the ground or standing up. And John Simon played in the 4-3 at Ohio State so he’s done it before. Great effort, he’s strong. He’ll fit in.” https://coltswire.usatoday.com/2018/04/20/indianapolis-colts-john-simon-defensive-end-new-defense/
    • I Like it mostly I think Connor may end up being a better Guard than tackle, I'd still like to draft him though and I would change the guys at rounds 5-7 otherwise It would be a good draft
