It wasn't about coverage. It was about tackling and doing their job. Clements lapsed pure and simple as one example.
Greed wasn't the issue.
I don't believe that was Nate's fault. Some of it was his fault, but I believe it was mostly the Safety's fault (Mark Roman) for not covering over the top. He let the receiver get behind him and it was merely a 10 yard pass. The angle he took on the play was just pathetic. In my opinion Nate played good defense. He was on Roddy the whole time, he just went for the deflection when he probably shouldn't have and missed.
