re: The Official post-Colts game secondary/pass defense/Talib thread...
I came away after the game with what I was expecting before the game: a mixed bag. Talib had an up and down day, but I can blame that on lack of reps and possibly not being in football shape after the suspension.
1. The touchdown that Talib gave up earlier in the game, he had excellent coverage on. The throw by Luck was simply that much better.
2. After the first couple of series, the corners moved into direct press-man and excelled at it, forcing the three and out.
3. Talib looks susceptible, at this moment in time, to double moves. He has burned on a few of them earlier in the game. Then, most notably, he was burned on the T.Y. Hilton TD later in the game. I expect the coaching staff to work with him on this.
4. Dennard had a solid game and it looks like McCourty is becoming more comfortable by the week in his safety role.
Those are the only secondary thoughts for now. I'm re-watching the game tonight and could come back with more info.
