Ummm, what? I really didn't understand what you're saying. Nor do I think you understand what I'm saying.

Fewer people throw to Spencer --> means Spencer is locking down his receiver.
There are other plausible reasons why fewer people throw to Spencer. As in, Clements is guarding the QB's favorite target; or by default, Spencer is not guarding the QB's favorite target. I'm not saying it's true or not - I'm pretty sure it is in many cases - but his logic is seriously flawed.

i actually agree, spencer has had less balls thrown to him, which means he's shutting the other wr down. and didnt he guard and shut down fitzgerald in week 1 too? i like brown as well from what i saw from him last year vs the jets when clements was injured
That's a pretty big fallacy. Perhaps Clements gets more balls thrown to his side because he's covering the #1 receiver who is the first read on a majority of plays.
I don't understand the theory that he is always covering the #1 receiver , that's his job we pay him $80 mill to lock them down ( example cromarti, Bailey, Revis those are are true shut down corners .
And as for Goldson he is doing decent job for now we need to let him develop , he is good at covering
