I’ll admit I could have been wrong when I said the trade giving up a second round pick to the Miami Dolphins for Vontae Davis was great. I thought Davis was going to be a lock-down corner and give the Indianapolis Colts two strong weapons on the outside areas of the field. Boy was I wrong.
In three games Davis has played he showed me he can’t play tight press coverage. I was so sick of him taking the Jacob Lacey approach of respecting the passing game too much and playing 10+ yards off the line. The Colts pass rush couldn’t get to the quarterback’s quick enough due to that and took a bunch of the blame. I heard all over Indianapolis that our pass rush needed to get better. What people failed to realize is it’s actually Davis’ lack of defending and playing tight coverage.

Deshaun Watson is the TRUTH!
Still have to do something with the pick we got...preferably someone better than Pat White.
Don't know how credible of an assessment that is.
I didn't watch the game but...
They just played an incredible game and won a game that NO ONE thought they could win.
Curious if anyone here saw it. What did you think of our former corner, the 'Bookworm' .
Looks like everyone on this board including myself was wrong, and Ireland was right. Getting a 2nd round pick and conditional 6th rounder was a steal for Vontae Davis.
