I thought the most brilliant game planning Manusky ever came up with was against Indianapolis. We kept our players standing up right, without tipping our formations to Manning until the last second. We confused the hell out of him, and it was extremely effective. That was most confused I've ever seen Peyton Manning. It's too bad we didn't win that game. But the defense gave us a good opportunity to win.
That said, we always seemed to be playing our DB's too far off receivers. Our D always gave up short completions that sometimes went for long gains. Our run defense was excellent, but we couldn't stop the pass if the game depended on it. And sometimes the offense would score the go-ahead or tie TD only to have the defense give up a score on the next posession. I don't think Manusky was the biggest problem on defense, but maybe we can do better with Fangio at the helm. Who knows, we'll find out.
