[QUOTE]That's called bad coaching, you have to look to the big guy (BB) when it comes to that. It's clear that Bills philosophy is to never take your eyes of the WR so that you can prevent a big play.

Exactly. I hate to say it, but it's so painfully obvious.
This hasn't been this year, this has been problematic for a few years.
NOT A SINGLE DEFENSIVE BACK HAS GOTTEN BETTER FROM YEAR TO YEAR!
Maybe a case could be made for Arrington, but he hasn't been especially impressive, even with the 7 ints.
DBs have routinely been having their best season, by far, their rookie years, and steadily regress from there. Bad coaching, plain and simple.
They are obviously taught to play the WR, and it does not work. It has killed the careers of quite a few young DBs already.
In the past BB has made his bones on having his D react, but that was with personel like:
It is obviously not working now, hasn't for a few years, and yet nothing changes.
Time to be PROactive, and try to make a few plays rather than waiting, and hoping for the offense to make a mistake. FORCE a few mistakes.
The lack of swivelling heads has been driving me crazy for years. It was first obvious with Butler, that poor kid couldn't do it, he relied on instincts, and the Pats seemed to try to coach him out of instincts, and coached him right out of the league.
