    Nice breakdown, TitansMVP. I was just assuming what the stat lines would look like this weekend, mostly because we've struggled so much against Houston lately. The official historical stat line does make me feel a bit better.

    For those thinking that I hate on Verner, I really don't. I love the dude, he's a great playmaker. You just have to understand match-ups and realize that Verner really doesn't match up well against most WRs. He plays far better in the slot and against TEs, as that's a much better match up for him. I love having him on the field as much as possible in the Nickle package, but he still has a lot of proving to do to be considered a true outside DB.

    The more of a mismatch your player has, the harder it will be to overcome it and play well. That's just my opinion. We could use a mix of JMac and ATV covering Andre, but I'd feel more comfortable if JMac spent the majority of the time on him.

    I think that is why they pushed Campbell because Verner is a mismatch with the bigger, faster WRs but plays well in the slot. Verner plays with such smarts and has a knack for the ball that there was no way to limit his snaps even if he is a mismatch for WRs. Vern would shine in a tampa 2 defense, great zone skills.

    Absolutely. A CB with Verner's IQ and Campbell's physical build would be the Megatron of CBs.
