I still feel like Manning is a massive improvement over where we were at...but these comments have me mildly concerned.
I would not read that much into it. Chicago played a 4-3. Houston with new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is going to run a 3-4. Wade will weigh heavily on his OLB's for pass rush along with Cushing inside. So his assingments will change, more shadow & cover exploiting his ball skills to make more down field plays.
