I have been skeptical of our Pass D all season. After the Titans game I was positive we needed another DB. McFadden is a great run support CB and DRC is a great coverage guy but they both are decent or just average at the other (McFadden/coverage, DRC/run support). After the Vikings game I had to eat my words because our D looked phenomenal. I thought DRC played fantastic; does anyone know how many passes were attempted his way?
I can't watch a replay of the game until Tuesday (why didn't I use my DVR? Ugh..) so I was curious and wanted to know if our pass D looked good because of our pass rush or if our pass rush looked good because of our coverage?
My initial reaction without watching game tape it that it was a combination of both. Davis and the D staff seemed to know Farves tendencies by dropping Dansby into a midfield safety position. We made very few mistakes and we played aggressive and flocked to the ball.
I still can't forget our loss to the Titans who I don't think are near as good team as the Vikings (we would have beat them with Warner at the helm, no disrespect to Leinart). So what is it? Consistency? Like last year does our team need the big stage in order to preform to its fullest? Or have we finally made turned a corner?
Last night we looked good, daaaamn good. I am looking forward to the 49 game very much (especially since my roommate is a 9er fan... oh yesterday was b-e-a-utiful!) can we continue on at this level?
