Default Week 13 Gay Meter: +14 (+1 today)

Gay was not thrown at virtually all day and while AG Green was covered by Ike, Jerome Simpson is no slouch. I have to conclude that Gay was effectively covering his assignments.

If Gay is so bad as the Gay haters have claimed, other teams would deliberately throw at this direction several times a game. If anything, they are shying away from Gay.

Another solid game. So far, our secondary has looked good this season. Gay and Lewis have been a big part of that.

I think corner depth which was an issue going into the season is evolving in to a position of strength. With Ike over 30 now, I'd love to see Brown, Gay, Allen, or Lewis become the close to shutdown corner Ike has become. And remember people Ike wasn't a great corner at first either. I believe Cowher benched him at one point.

Yep our problem last year was Madison being a #4 cb. Depth was the biggest weakness but that has been fixed this year. That and burnt toast mcfadden wasn't cutting it as a #2

Yeah Baltimore week 1 showed that pretty well. Other than that our secondary's been solid. Not awesome like our run D was last year but it's been considerably more of a help than a hindrance.

Ah thanks. Knew he got hurt but didn't know for the whole season. There ya go then. I liked the kid's potential but I trust the coaches more than myself because this is a team that has succeeded far often more than not.

This cracks me up.. The entire defence was decent, but Gay didnt stand out in any way good or bad and you give points.. That's insane... So if he does nothing good or bad it equals out?

So if he he gets +1, so does the entire defense... Unless Baltimore loses and we capture the division, he could be plus 1000 on your scale and it wouldn't mean jack crap because he was covering on the blown play that will end up going down as the play that cost us the division..
