future - Jerod Mayo and Gary Guyton
I wonder if this had a lot to do with the very good run Defense
against the Colts
Now If they can just do something about the pass rush.
Guyton has come a long way ... surprised many I'm sure.
LBs = 205 snaps [4.02/play]
S = 102 snaps [Sanders and Meriweather on every play, no one else]
CBs = 131 snaps [2.57/play]
DL = 123 snaps [2.41/play]
So, pretty much, when they went to a nickel formation, they subbed out a DL for a CB.
