Bang Whitten at the line of scrimmage and throw the timing off for 1/2 second.
May be the 1/2 second Jordan needs to seal the deal.
Take Whitten away and make the other throws have to be perfect.
Poor Colston.
Didn't go much in pre-season.
They just hoped the magic would once again impress once the light came on.
The past few injuries gave him alligator arms.
I've watched him go from full-layout and take the hit
to catch it in the gut so I can cover up...
and he's taken some hits and held on for the catch.
Every year he gets up slower and slower.
It's kinda sad to see.

I saw Vaccaro covering Olsen. He barely cought him after 30yds gain. It's unbelievable how much speed/quickness he lost. I don't think he can be successful true safety in this league.

Brees84,
+1, saw that too ... Olsen was strolling through our defense as if we were not even there. Lots of miscommunication going on. At this level, no NFL player should be that wide open. My UT friends are still telling me "what you see, is what you get" as it relates to Vacarro. At times he shows a lot of promise & other times not so much.

Side note: Can someone get in Sean's ear and tell him that CJ Spiller is still a difference maker? On the few plays I saw of him last week the quickness, burst and afterburners are still there. He MUST have more touches this week against the Cows.

Olsen has decent speed for a TE. He ran a 4.51 I think plenty of defenders don't realize how quick he really is until it's too late.

I think we will see Spiller get 12-15 touches this week. Coach made a point to call himself out for not giving Spiller more snaps.
