The safety should have read his keys and stayed deep center, but he came down for a split second and at that point, you aren’t going to catch up to Jacoby Jones. Misplayed the ball’s arc as well, probably underestimated Flaccos’ arm strength. Was just poor play by a poor player.
DEN is certainly “loading up”. The results we’ll have to see. They got dogged in the superbowl but it was their offense that didn’t show up. Defense was bad but didn’t get torched, offense was absolutely handled. And they’ve done nothing to improve up front.
If they can get Ware on good $ that would be impressive, for sure. "
