i just think moore owns kareem, theres no other way to put it.
i wonder how joseph would have matched up with moore on the same play..
kareem needs a new gameplan when guarding this man i guess, jam him up harder at the line is the only remedy i see. if kareems on an island with moore, moore is going to win, hes faster and more athletic.
This, and especially the underlined part.
A DB should turn his head only when he's in good position (in stride or ahead of the receiver), otherwise he will only loose seperation.
We talked about how Allen was in the trail position on a post route last season.
The QB hit the receiver on the shoulder pad, allowing Allen to grab the receiver's arm (barely) and not letting him pull in the pass.
Allen never turned his head (for the same reason).
If that ball was placed perfectly like the one Brees threw, it would have a long TD pass "given up" by Allen.
I also mentioned a 53 yd TD pass Allen gave up to Wallace (when Allen was with the Dolphin).
Allen was also in trail position, but as soon as he tried to turn his head, he lost Wallace and gave up the TD.
