    Charles Clay was silent this week until the clutch 4th down conversion on the Game winning drive. Egnew and Sims were getting more targets.

    Weird right? until I found out Aquib Talib got given the assignment of covering Clay. So what happens? Wallace goes off!

    In the beginning of the season everyone was calling Wallace a bust but he took the brunt of the defense letting guys like Hartline and Clay have career years. Now that those guys are just as much threats what does the opposition do now?

    I guess top guy for the Roadkill Bills is Leodis McKelvin. Who does he get to cover?

    AMERICA!
    Impossible! Didn't you get the memo that Wallaces presence on the field, contributes no success whatsoever, to the other players around him?

    Phins will still score 20, regardless. In every one of these games it's all about the defense and special teams holding the opponent to 20 and under. Cause the offense sure ain't gonna score in bunches.

    I know we are talking about their corners but flipping this around...Marquis Goodwin is a guy we can't sleep on. He's the type of short, fast, elusive receiver that always seems to burn Miami...Think Antonio Brown.
    As for Mckelvin who is their best cover corner...I suspect it will be him on Mike Wallace on Sunday.

    Yet, when Mike Wallace draws the opposing teams #1 CB every week...it doesn't help the offense in the least bit. Right? Did I get that part right?

    You're being sarcastic right? I've admitted the exact opposite. Clay and Hartline are having excellent year and it's obvious Wallace has something to do with it.

    How many people started Clay on their Fantasy team based on his game against the Steelers and drew the big Goose Egg?

    isn't it great that we get to argue which of the three receivers (#82, #42, #11) has the greater impact on our offense? Maybe Tannehill and dare I say it, Sherman, deserve some credit?

    It does help the offense, but so what, exactly? That's the very least he should be doing.

    I did it this week because he had been outperforming Jason Witten as of late, and it's gonna bite me in the ***.

    Yeah, Talib started out on Clay and I would guess he was on him primarily, but they mixed it up.
     
  19. One of the things that impresses me about RT is how he spreads the ball around. He does no rely on a favorite target. He reads the defenses and tries to exploit their weaknesses in coverage rather than trying to force the ball to his favorite guys. He is a heady player.

    The last thing Wallace should be doing is helping the offense? :confused1:

    My basic philosophy on offense is that it's all about spacing. You make the defense defend the whole field and then you have a smart triggerman that can exploit whatever area is the weakest. That includes the run game where you make them defend the middle and the edges. Once you show that you can hurt a defense in all areas of the field it makes them have to pick their poison. That's why having a Wallace that can threaten the deep sidelines is key. Along with targets in the middle of the field (Gibson, Matthews, Clay) and the use of the read-option that makes edge players stay a beat longer. I think the use of the screens to Clay and Wallace provide a nice counter-balance to the Hartline timing plays and the deep shots to Wallace. I don't think we've used the backs as much as we could have and I think Keller as a seam threat would have added an extra dimension. Overall though we've greatly increased the number of targets and the number of areas where we can hurt a defense over last season. I think that that along with RT's development have made us a much more dangerous offense as evidenced by our late game ability. Each additional weapon we add has an effect that's greater than the sum of the parts so hopefully we can improve on that this next off-season. But this year we have enough that we can play with anybody s it really shouldn't matter who the Bills decide to focus their coverage on. We have a D that can keep it close and make game changing plays and an offense that can move the ball in key situations.

    i love it...teams dont know who to focus on. pick your poison. also, big shout out to throwing the ball to our rbs on a swing and flare routes for touchdowns. i have been calling for it for months now. its been open all year. i'll take that mismatch all day.

    No, drawing a #1 corner in coverage is the very least he should be doing.

    I initially wrote this off as silly and self-congratulatory, but I think you absolutely might have stumbled upon something.

    Could the people whom seem to believe Mike Wallace has magical properties be suffering from Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, literally "football mind"?
