For the first time all season, our rookie DB's were
exposed by the veteran Manning. He set up Wilson
twice for TD's. The first was a post patten to
Harrison (when Law gave him a free pass off the line).
The second was after Wilson came up and nailed
Walters on a crossing route. The very next play,
Walters starts across and breaks off to the post for
an easy TD. Samuel was beaten a few time (once on an
absolutely perfect pass from Manning).
Wilson redeemed himself on that goal line stand when
he stood up James on 1st down.
Also the impact of having TW in the middle cannot be
stated enough. What an impact player. He, not Willie
McGinest blew up that 4th down play, by getting
penetration into the backfield and tying up Edgerrin
James legs. Willie did come down the line hard and
wrap him up, but it was TW that stopped the momentum.
BTW - Vrabel - Keep you hat on ... you should have
been called for a penalty.
