That guy needs to GTFO.

Come back soon, Johnathan.

I thought he was in position MOST of the time. The Megatron TD, no one...NO ONE could have covered it better. Ball isn't a ProBowler but he more than held his own today.

Ball covering CJ was terrible. Jackson is the #2 CB on this team and he should have been on Johnson the entire game. And by saying terrible I mean on Wade Phillips.

That strategy was agreeable with one of our good residential members, Rey.
When he first mentioned it last year, it makes a lot of sense to me.
Maybe we should have shown our attention a bit clearer at the beginning of the play to make Stafford spent 1/10 of a sec longer before making a decision.
Just maybe

That's what I thought. What were some of you expecting?

KJac went up against him in the 2nd half, he didnt put up those #s on him

Does Wade play left and right CBs rather than matchup based?

Seems Kareem is always on the defensive right and Joseph on the left when I get to watch them.

If that is the system, best keep the system in place rather than muck around with it.

CBs play a side of the field unless we feel the need to have JoJo on a particularly dangerous receiver. Had he been healthy, he would have been on Johnson all game, as he has been on Thomas against Denver and Smith against Baltimore (and in the general vicinity of but not on Jordy Nelson against Green Bay).

not the whole 2nd half. KJ only went against him mainly after ball got hurt and harris came into the game.

It was almost the whole 2nd half. CJ had less than 40 yards in the 2nd half. Most of that came on an about 25 yd out in front of KJ early in the half. After that CJ was pretty much done.

I thought Ball played a pretty damn good game , As Papal said - No one could have covered that TD reception any better. He was an inch away from breaking up that play.

I agree with you generally and especially on the TD play. But, KJ played CJ enough tighter that Stafford chose not to even throw at him much.

Re: Alan Ball
 
i was wondering if they were ever gonna start double covering CJ. I mean lord have mercy i wouldnt be so worried with 1 on 1 with jo jo but i didnt see much help from the safties to start the game. HOWEVER in the 2nd half i saw manning helping with CJ nearly every play.

Re: Alan Ball
 
I think we have arrived at a point in time when KJ is considered good, not just in comparison to Ball but good in general.

Dude must be mentally tough to have come this far after the flaming he got early on.

It was the whole 2nd half. Ball was getting burned by their other receivers. Kj was on Cj from the beginning of the third Qtr to the end of OT.

Even when he got moved to the other receivers, he was still getting beat.
