    I am thinking a bit of a shift with the LB play is the best way to combat this. Rey needs to stay home a little more and not attack the LoS so much, while I love he tenacity against the run a stay at home MLB will take the crossing routes, drags away and make the middle of the field quite a bit more daunting to a rookie QB. I do recognize the pass rush issues this creates but mixing the Safety and LB rush a bit more than we currently do oils create problems. Again I may not be completely in line and welcome any other thoughts.

    I know Mike Zimmer and Marvin like to play man coverage, but I think this is actually a good game for zone. I’d put a corner on Andre Johnson’s side and roll a safety over that way as well. Then I’d make sure Owen Daniels got jammed on the line of scrimmage every play before having backers and safeties to deal with. I’d also use a few zone blitzes as well. I can’t imagine TJ Yates has seen too many of those in his limited action.
