one play he got lucky where Bradford missed a wide open touchdown
where is the hype?
if your safety is lacking, they will test you.
rogers didn't test him on their double moves..
wilson tested him deep and reid ended up running a better route than the wr and getting an interception.
the colts didn't test him deep.
if you notice there is a clear difference in their attacks. if its deep, its not to his area and usually either 1 on 1 or whitner side.
not to him anymore. doesn't mean he can't be beaten it just means for now his mind is right and he is in the right position over the top which takes away those throws.
dashon is the type to roam, and it worked well for him but he roamed and sometimes relied on his makeup speed to recover from being out of position. reid isn't out of position so far so he doesn't even have to rely on anything other than technique and instinct so far...
better believe if there was a weakness so far, the qb's he's faced... wilson, then luck and now bradford... would have tried something.
1st 2 games of the season the rams were throwing bombs..
last 2 not so much.
it's also helped our secondary. bradford is the first to throw for 200 yards on us since week 1 i don't think we've had a 100 yard wr since week 1. our run defense has been great sans 4th quarters but we know why that was so.....
