Guess who was covering Avery on that final play?

22 posts in this topic

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.

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

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

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....

    •   Hodges put a tweet out alluding to his past off season issues, and how he's paying for them now.  He was warning the young guys coming into the league that dumb things you do hurt you in the pocket book.   I don't know if that's the issue with him now, that he's expecting more $$$ and teams are afraid he'll screw up?  I like that he realized his mistakes.  He' be a decent addition.    Or it could be that the coaches just like how Morrison and Jackson are progressing?
    • Oh yeah she definitely has a little of the derpy look in her face. It doesn't appear to be as "bad" as true Persian kittens look lol.      Angel was a beautiful white Turkish Angora with piercing Green yellow eyes. To the day she died she was still playful and for whatever reason liked to "Box" with you. It was an awesome trait. 2I mean she was only two years younger than me so I don't really have any memories of my life before her. So I fell in love with the traditional cat type look. I also own two Boxer dogs though so I'm not opposed to the unique looks that can be had for our furry friends       Also Luna is an agile little ball. She slept most of the day yesterday but this morning she is crazy hyper and I found her in this precarious position.... 
    • Makes you wonder why a change was needed?   If 22 games went past 10 minutes, we could cut that in half to account for coaching for 10 minutes.   That's still 11 more ties in 5 years.   So 2+ more ties a year.  
    •   I mean don't get me wrong, sometimes I definitely wish he wouldn't do it as much, but Hilton led the league in yards last year, so getting the ball in his hands should definitely be a priority.
    • Walterfootball pointed out that the Colts have a relatively easy early schedule with no real good QB's on the docket for the first 6 games.

    • Well, it's hard to be a far away fan but, when you come to a home game, it's all the sweeter.  Everybody in town wearing blue. It's fun!
    •   If any Chargers fans give you guff, you refer them to me.  I will take care of it.   I like the gear.  I am a big fan of the St. Patrick's gear.   If you couldn't tell from my name, I'm a green-loving Irish SOB.  What's luckier than a horseshoe AND a 4-leaf clover?  A QB named Luck?  Come on, if that isn't divine intervention...
