    Re: I see Zibbi is the starting SS for the Colts



    Vontae Davis isn't Corey Webster.
    We're going to need a different gameplan obviously, so hopefully Caldwell's had enough time to install routes that are designed to help our WRs get open--they do struggle against decent CBs when they run those isolation routes.
    I have a feeling our TEs are going to be one of the keys to our victory.

    They do have Vontae Davis and I would imagine that he will be lined up on Torrey for most of the game. It is going to be up to Caldwell and Flacco to get Torrey the ball in space because Vontae is pretty damn good.

    However, outside of Davis they have Darius Butler, Cassius Vaughn, and Teddy Williams. None of those guys are nearly as capable as Davis. So, I would hope that Boldin and Jacoby could take advantage of those mismatches as well.

    I have that same feeling, I'm looking for more TE/LB mis-matches then we've seen all year (or at least since the Raiders game).

    I suppose that's true. Last season they allowed 4.3 yards per attempt, but when we played them we got about 3.9. If you only count what Williams & Rice did, it was 3.5 yards per attempt (Leach and Torrey Smith had some rush attempts that upped our average by a great deal that game).

    He hurt his knee in week 12 against Buffalo.
    Hasn't played since.

    If out TE's can't beat Zibby, we are in big trouble.
