was a non factor this week but didnt have to be...he will have a big game vs the colts next week!
He was a non-factor becuase the Jags played a scared defense. They absolutely refused to let him catch a ball and it cost them the game. They tried so hard to keep him double, triple, quadrouple covered that it left everyone else open or in single coverage.
I don't see the Colts playing Moss that hard. Who knows though. A win is a win. If Moss gets open and has a big game, great. If not, so long as we win, great.
The thing about Moss is that he can NEVER be a non-factor. Either he'll beat you, or you'll have to commit the extra coverage and make other guys kill you.
I think he had an awesome game as far as run blocking goes. You can clearly see that he helped LoMo get a lot of extra yards once he got to the outside.
Moss was a big factor this week. He opened up the rest of the WRs underneath and threw some worth wile blocks. Itâ€™s a matter of the other team choosing how they die. I think the other teams are better off diying by the long fast sores rather than allowing these long drives. If the Patriots D is old and gets tiered, you donâ€™t want them resting on these 8 minute drives.
^^^^Co-sign what everyone else said about the coverage.
Extremely good point. I think ultimately opposing defensive coordinators THINK they can stop the short game, or at least draw up a gameplan against it. With Moss, on the other hand, they concede his ability makes it a match up that cannot be schemed against without the extra attention.
