And so far KJ is ahead. In the Jets game, KJ gave up a 6yd catch playing off-man and an 11-yd slant. Allen gave up a 5-yd catch playing off-man and a 12yd slant. Pretty much a wash. In the Saints game, KJ made the tackle on a 9yd pass to Moore in the outside flat on the second play, but that was in zone. The Texans' scheme simply didn't have a defender close enough to defend the play better. Allen made a tackle on a 19yd pass to Moore in Cover 3. Allen lined up on Moore, but did not squeeze the skinny post route. I would chalk this one to Manning or split the responsibility between the two. Those who wants to see their CB to "man up" would have to put this one on Allen though. On the 56yd TD pass to Morgan, KJ simply didn't follow the receiver. It looks like he was playing underneath all the way. Replay shows that Manning bit a head fake by the receiver Morgan (pretending to cut behind KJ to the outside.) In this coverage call (if there was no miscommunication involved), this one was on Manning. On the 43-yd pass to Meachem (which could have been a 51-yd TD easily), Allen was learning the back pedal anew and it showed he wasn't very good at it. From the replay, Yeap, Allen "fell down" comig off his backpedal and allowed the receiver to run free to the outside. The replay is from the Saints feed; the Texans' feed didn't have it - Spencer Tilman probably deleted it intentionally to cover up for his boy Allen Screen shots will follow when I have some time.
