Ok, for everyone out here saying this is some sort of a defensive strategy, then why isn't our defensive strategy to put our best CB on their best WR? Yeah, Clark is good and all, but Wayne is way better, way more dangerous. If Brown is good enough to start why isn't he good enough to cover Clark???
I'm a total homer, but this and the Rossum cut really have me shaking my head. I even think Jimmy Raye is doing a good job and that we'll make the playoffs.
Wayne rarely lines up on the right side, he's always on the left side. Clements always lines up against the WR on the right side of the field.
You don't go from shutting down AJ to getting benched against Austin Collie...yes, this is a defensive strategy.
Also, CB's don't cover TE's, if they do, somebody missed an assignment or it's a terrible play play call. It's the LB's and Saftey's job to cover TE's.
