On Winnipeg's only major score last game, Bishop hooked up with a wide-open Titus Ryan for a long TD. Ryan looked to be open because of a miscommunication between corner Sanchez and safety Proulx. Sanchez evidently let Ryan release down field under the assumption that safety help would be forthcoming over top. Proulx apparently thought Sanchez would be in man against Ryan. Whichever player was right and whichever player was wrong, the result was the same: one play, one TD against.
I don't want to come across as negative, but busted coverage that results in a huge play or TD against has become all too common with our defense over the past month. Why is that? Why has this hitherto stellar group suddenly forgotten how to communicate with each other and ensure they're on the same page? Everyone around the league is talking about how we're susceptible to the big play. Are they right? Come the playoffs, will other teams push the ball down field on us with impunity? What, if anything, can we do to avoid getting burned on the deep ball?
