This defensive play is straight from Madden playbook. Godfrey was supposed to play zone but instead he played man.
White and Cason played sidelines, Luke covered short and DeCoud over the time. Harper played his deep zone as well. Davis played his zone and Godfrey was supposed to cover the other half... that's where the catch was made. Look at that giant hole in the middle of the field...
That has always been the major issue with him to me. Playing your space in the zone in the redzone has very little to do with exceptional athleticism. He had mental breakdowns like this is whole career. Just like when he got hurt last year, we will see an immediate improvement on defense. We have been running that nickel as our base defense the past two weeks. We have given up almost 90 points in that time.
Maybe people will see the correlation now. Dockery will provide way better nickel coverage and cannot show the ineptitude Godfrey did in coverage or in tackling.
