Post Colts to follow Browns lead, key in on Mike Wallace
Why would you make the same mistake the Browns did?


Quote:
INDIANAPOLIS — Cleveland’s strategy to double up on Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace last week worked in the sense that Wallace had just one reception for 15 yards.
But it also opened up the field for Dolphins receivers Brian Hartline (nine catches, 114 yards) and Brandon Gibson (seven catches, 77 yards). And the Dolphins passing game made the difference in a second half comeback.
But Colts defensive coordinator Greg Manusky told The Indianapolis Star that the Colts will employ a similar strategy to stop Wallace on Sunday.
“What Cleveland did sometimes was kind of roll up on him, very similar to what Oakland did with Reggie (Wayne) last week against us, try to take away that best receiver,” Manusky said. “But we have to do that as well. He’s a productive player, gets up the field, he’s a deep threat. We have to make sure we get in his face and re-route him and have (a safety) over the top of him because he can beat double coverage at times.”

Colts writer Stephen Holder sees the danger in this strategy: “Dedicating a safety to Wallace’s side of the field means the Colts could be living dangerously, to an extent,” Holder wrote.
In his Pro Bowl season two ago, Wallace lit up the Colts in Indianapolis for five receptions for 144 yards.
But if the Colts manage to shut down Wallace this time, it will be on Hartline, Gibson and tight end Charles Clay to take advantage. Indianapolis, which starts former Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis, doesn’t have a star-studded secondary.
Expect quarterback Ryan Tannehill to throw often although the Dolphins will likely try to establish the run early after last week’s debacle on the ground. The Colts have an average run defense so this could be an opportunity for Miami’s offensive line and Dolphins running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas to show last week’s 20-yard rushing performance was a fluke.

Maybe I should start Gibson then too?

Did they trade for Haden? Otherwise that sounds great.

Wallace was getting 8-10 yard buffer the majority of his snaps. Unless Sherman is an idiot, I expect to see Wallace get slants, screens, and even line up in the slot.

Know what? Go ahead & shade a LB over toward Wallace too cuz your run D doesn't need the help. & I'm suuure Lamar will play the exact same way he did last week, trust me Colts

Nah....Gibson is a WR4 at best. I also could put Andre Roberts in instead o Wallace......decisions, decisions.

I'm in the Phinfever 16 team keeper league. Pretty deep. He did well last week. Might start Megatron, Wes Welker, and Gibson, bench Denarius Moore.

I thought the same thing during the entire Cleveland game. They should keep throwing to him and let him have YAC as I like our chances finding quick ways to just get the ball into Wallace's hands.

How the hell did you get Megatron and Welker in a 16 team league?

Better to ask him who he has at RB.....

Hard to have a great team across the board in a 16 game league. I have won a league with 14 teams, but I had to work the waiver wire and research a lot to pull it off.

RBs- Ray Rice and Bernard Giovani

My QB is Russell Wilson

I think Gibson will do well for the Dolphins today, but I think I will leave in Denarius Moore since he is going against the jaquars.

I think whoever has Lamar Miller will be happy today.

"Wallace had 144 yards in receptions in his only previous game against the Colts (in 2011), and the Dolphins assuredly will look for him more early in Sunday's game than they did a week ago."
