Often times, O.D. alone was enough.

The best an opponent can do against us was Lewis who had 3 catches for 40 yards and 2 TDs.
Graham beat him all by himself with 8 catches for 82 yards and 2 TDs.
O.D. & Casey added 9 for 77; the Jags had no other output from their TEs/FBs.

The only matchup we lost was to the Bears, when we attempted 7 fewer passes and O.D. didn't play. They had 2 more catches for 5 more yards.

This is far less of a problem than our secondary issues.
You got that right Cak.

What I was referring to was obvious holes in midfield that our D has a terrible time defending. Good TEs led by effective passers have taken routine advantage of this deficit.

That was a thing of the past, CNND.

Our LBs Sharpton (except for that debacle of a play when he first came back), Rudd, and Dobbins have been very solid in coverage.

.... But James is coming back, LOL!

Well call me a non-believer.


I'd like to see Dobbins (or whoever) nullify their backfield receivers like he did Ray Rice. That, I think, is one of the keys to this game. That little Woodhead fella, & Welker will be coming out of the backfield from time to time as well.

Then Vareen.... big play waiting to happen. Someone needs to smack him every time he goes into the flat, whether he gets the ball or not. He needs to be hearing footsteps. Clydesdale like footsteps.

Our guys have been doing a good job of cutting off the RB out of the backfield.

We gave up 20 "inconsequential" yards on 4 catches to Chris Johnson (a 5-yd average.)
3 of the passes were on second and 10, the other one was on first and 20.
We also cut him off on a screen pass, forcing an incompletion.
No big deal.

I'm thinking when both Woodhead and Welker are in the game, we might be in dime.

Somebody is going to jump on Woodhead from the start and we may play press on Welker (all of our guys can do that).

Lloyd is not the biggest downfield treat we've seen; we may shade the single deep safety to help on Welker.
