The problem with spying is that basically means you have 6 guys covering 5 receivers, which means that you can really only play Cover-1, which basically means that your corners are stuck on an island. If we had Grimes in the lineup, that might be OK. But with Robinson, Nicholas in coverage, you're leaving subpar cover men out to dry. Basically if you have any breakdowns, you're in deep dungarees. And against guys like Crabtree, Moss, V. Davis, that's not a recipe for success.
Vernon Davis scares me. He scares me a lot. Our coverage of TEs has been terrible this year. Zach Miller tore us up, partly because we were so keyed on Wilson and Lynch. But Miller is not dynamic. About as dynamic as Michael Palmer. Vernon Davis is dynamic. You give him those opportunities that Miller got, and he'll put up 300 yards on us.
