Would you classify JJo's performance last night as lockdown?
There were other CBs on Green, JJo covered other WRs at times and he occasionally played zone. It's not as black and white as people would like to believe. Green also got a 52 yard PI call that doesn't show up in the stats and led to the Bengals TD (I don't recall who was on him, but I think it was Quin).
That said, JJo did great and didn't give up any TDs. He was playing well, but more importantly, the front 7 was playing excellently. Pressure is the key to a good secondary, and helps guys like Kareem and Allen a lot more than we see in the stats. If Watt, Smith, Barwin and Cush can break through the Baltimore o-line next week, we have a good shot of winning that game. Just go back and watch the Balt/Jax or Titans game. Get pocket pressure on Flacco and he folds like a cheap suit (much like Matt Ryan). Give him all day to pass and he will eventually find someone to catch the ball.
