I haven't taken a closer look at the Jets game at all yet, but I had a few Q's that perhaps the more football savvy members of the board might be able to take a stab at. I'm wondering what the responsibilities were for the defensive players in 2 different plays that have occurred this season, they happen to be two of the very few instances in which the Patriots secondary and pass coverage didn't look so good: 1) 2nd and 16 at KC 27 (1:09) (No Huddle, Shotgun) D.Huard pass deep right to D.Darling to NE 5 for 68 yards (D.O'Neal) [R.Harrison]: Looking at this play again, it looks like either a) Meriweather freezes while looking at Huard and should have continued to cover Darling b) Meriweather is expecting to pass Darling off to Sanders' zone. Either way, Sanders made one of his few poor plays of an otherwise well played game and took a bad route to tackle Darling. But for the actual completion itself, who was more at fault, Sanders or Meriweather? 2) 3rd and 4 at NE 32 (11:10) B.Favre pass short right to L.Washington to NE 19 for 13 yards (D.O'Neal, R.Harrison): Honestly, I may have the wrong play here, I'll have to go back and look at the tape, but I'll describe it anyway. I think this was it, b/c on 3rd and short, they didn't have their nickel package in, Bruschi was on the field with Mayo. The RB coming out of the backfield ran right by Bruschi AND Mayo uncontested and no one followed, Favre hit him in an empty zone and he scurried along for some more yardage...who's responsibility was he in this instance? When Bruschi came off the field in passing situation, Mayo was most often responsible for the RB out of the backfield, but with Bruschi on the field, how does coverage change?
