       My quick take on the D.   Secondary is good.  I've been a little disappointed that Revis hasn't been able to completely dominate on his side of the field, but his play is still very solid.  McCourt more »

  • Forum Post: Peyton Manning locks on to his receiver too . . .

    Posted 09/21/2014 08:17:45 EDT

      I'd add that throwing quickly to your first read isn't really locking in.  Locking in is staring at a receiver for extended periods.  It's more likely to be an issue on slower developing routes.  In more »

      My take on this is it's acceptable coverage by Arrington.  He's maybe a half step behind the receiver after the receiver's inward break I think, but he knows he has safety help up top and he's prote more »

     It almost looks like Gronk wasn't picking up the ball--look at where his eyes are focused as the ball passes in front of him.  The play did look weird.
