No team in the league would allow a linebacker to line up on a fast receiver such as Johnson. The linebacker most likely would move outside, placing the corner on the inside to cover Johnson. Once this happens, the Safety would then move into the box to help against a possible run play or double the inside receiver. If a team takes the chance of getting beat on a post pattern, it's with a slower tight end. This is what makes teams such as Baltimore, NY, and KC so effective. Their TE's are so quick and fast downfield, they leave a difficult matchup for any defense. The Texans on the other hand have Miller, but he is a step slower than the elite TE's! Hard hitting Safeties like Roy Williams and Sean Taylor help alot in these situation! Can cover and hit like a hammer!
