To me it looked like Davis was the first option instead of being a part of a progressive check down. They weren't wasted plays but the Lions were giving us those passes. We took them and you are right about the fact that they worked, but our problem isn't between the 20's. It's scoring.

I beg to differ. Smith and LT often find a seam and press up the field in a true pass route. Dom only runs a short curl turn-around after sneaking thru the line underneath the linebacker drops. That is not exactly running much of a pass pattern.
