Blitzes are generally high risk/reward situations. If they pick up the blitz there are less guys in coverage and chances are someone will be open.

When we have a guy like Troy who is so versatile in what he can do, we can get away with riskier play calling more often.

The annoying thing is that when we don't play that aggressive we are giving up big chunks of yardage anyway. I don't think we are letting our cornerbacks do what they are capable of doing by having them play so far off the receivers. It's a regular thing now that we are just giving them that big cushion and accepting them getting catches as opposed to aggressively covering the wideouts.

He should have been playing that D the whole game instead of going to the prevent D, in the 4th qtr.

1) No
2) Troy

If he's in it's business as usual and we shut these guys down in the fourth.:noidea:

It has always been said that "Troy is everywhere".... when a player that is "everywhere" is removed, then that cuts off a LARGE part of the strategy.... THEN there is a "domino" effect on the other defensive players that enables them to make plays also BECAUSE of Troys ability to disrupt offensive plays.... what I mean is that when Troy returns, we will see MANY other defensive players begin to make plays...

He needs to do that more often. He has hardly done it at all this season

I agree
We've seen very little of the aggressive stuff this year. Usually no one can figure out where the blitzers are gonna be coming from because they come often and they keep changing it up. So far this year we've seen very little of it. It was great to see Gay come in off the corner and cause immediate havok.

One encouraging sign the last couple weeks is that we're closing the deal. 9 straight red zone trips have been TDs and the defense hasn't blown a fourth quarter lead like it did against Chicago and Cincy.

With Troy back out there we'll hold leads even better.

Y'know, I hadn't thought of it was a domino effect. There's really no excuse, but it's not necessarily that our D isn't great without Troy, but more, trying to make the appropriate changes.
