so i guess we'll see... the nickel/slot db spot might really pay off... smaller wideout usually, not so isolated. could be what's needed.
i just had a habit of screaming at the television at him a lot the last two years. my gf doesnt really even follow football and "knows" that he's no good.
Actually, what I've heard is that in the nickel, Woodson is going to cover the slot receiver and Carroll will take one of the outside guys. I think this is because Woodson is stronger and more physical, which is more important with the slot receiver. I don't think this is an unusual arrangement for nickel defenses. Often the opposing team's best or second best receiver will move in to the slot when they go to three-receiver sets. Carroll's speed and lack of height make him a better fit for the outside.
As for the earlier question about whether Sander held for all field goal attempts, I think he did because I'm pretty sure I saw him stay in there for two consecutive attempts, one by each kicker. I doubt that it means very much, though.
