Well before you said he was really good. He was the 248th highest paid player in football this year. I guess my standard for a really good player is a much smaller percentile of the league than you. It's a small contract for a FA player.
If the Jags are only good against the pass because teams don't need to pass against them, that seems like a really dumb strategy, since they made it just as far as we did. I could see that argument if they were 3-13 or something.
It can be true that the Jags were very good against the pass and true that their numbers are helped by the fact that they had a bad run defense.
The Vikings were good at both.And their numbers on third down are maybe the best indicator of all on just how good they were as a unit against the pass.
