    Another no brainer.

    4th and 1! BP just challenged the previous play to give this team a chance.

    Zimmer puts Henry on Roy Williams.

    Newman is covering the slot. [why? ]

    The resulting play is a 23 yard catch by Roy Williams.

    Henry can NOT cover Roy Williams.

    and neither can the 5'7" Aaron Glenn with 8 ticks left on the clock in the first half. That's good coaching.

    Who do you want to put on him? Earlier in the game Roy Williams ran by Newman like he was standing still but Kitna overthrew him. Nobody on this defense can cover Roy Williams.

    Why do we continue to put Newman on inferior WR's?

    I mean, isn't the point in having a great cover CB is to match him up with great WR's?

    Yes.

    He's our best.

    Henry/Glenn are "FA pick ups."

    BTW, why not double the coverage on Roy Williams?

    If you want to put Henry out there on an island, give him some help.

    Anthony is the bigger, supposedly more physical CB. He should be on Williams. The question is why didn't he bump him coming off the line? Why do they never bump guys coming off the line?

    henry is a good corner and i think is only slightly overmatched by williams. our coverage problems are almost entirely caused by the lack of pressure on the quarterback. henry had the initial route covered, but the lions had time to run a much longer route where williams bounced it back outside.

    no need to double cover roy williams....just put Newman on him one on one......then double Furrey.......Furrey was the guy who looked like the second coming of Steve Largent out there

    i still think henry should go back to playing what he used to, safety. he's way
    too slow and doesn't change direction well enough for corner.

    This is frustrating.

    I almost hate watching the game again.



    Happy New Year!

    Newman was on Furrey, who, if you didn't notice had a pretty good game on us as well.

    This is a game where we should have gone man on man. Newman on Williams, and Glenn as the quicker guy on Furrey. Put Henry at FS.

    The Cowboys secondary plays zone for the most part which basically allows the offense to pick it's matchups. It also prevents our corners from bumping receivers.

    Why we don't mix up things, play some man coverage at times, and adjust to what the offense is doing is beyond me.
