You cannot win playing safeties at cornerback.
But they do and then they play a lot of zone.
They have to or else you get Morgan Burnett covering McCaffrey or Joe Thomas covering Olsen. If you only have two corners on the field it changes everything. If House were playing, Randall would be playing in the slot and covering Olsen or McCaffrey.
I don't know. I would think you'd at least give them a chance in the dime package. But it's possible they just aren't confident in the scheme, in which case, why are they on the 46-man roster.
Clinton-Dix has to put a hit on Olsen there. Not bear hug him.
Don't forget, the Panthers made the Vikings look bad last week and they have the best defense in the NFL.
McCaffrey was thinking about throwing it there.
Hawkins just too slow picking up that route combination.
That's probably the ball game right there.
We're writing the obituary on this defense and probably the season now.
Hawkins beat twice to finish off that drive.
Yeah, I don't know how you make a case for Capers to come back. Even with all the injuries in the secondary, it's just beyond me how this group can't play zone and the safeties can't make a play at all.
I wouldn't classify Hyde or Hayward as saviors. Hayward has been very good for the Chargers, but he's playing in a system that favors him. That said, they needed to be replaced and they haven't been.
If this half isn't a referendum on re-signing Davante Adams, I don't know what is.
