I thought I remembered reading in the training camp articles that in nickel packages Townsend would move to the slot and McFadden would take his place outside. I believe the article stated Townsend was a better blitzer.
For those that will watch the game (I'm stuck watching the Pats, I live in Mass.) please pay attention to see if this is the case.
If that is the case then McFadden will have plenty of oppurtunities against the #2 WRs.
Let me know!!
