I think Haden would have as much trouble as Davis with Gronk. Haden is not a big guy. Gronk would bully him and create separation. I get why Davis was put on Gronk. If you looked at the roster Sunday he made the most sense. Young, mobile safety with good size and strength. He needed help though. I would not be pissed if they put Davis on him again. I think the kid will learn a thing or two from this past week and give him a little goddamn safety help!!!! Haden can lockdown whatever piece of shit WR is on the other side...Hogan, Amendola, Ochocinco, whoever....

In 2011, the single high safety was Ryan Clark.

Now it’s Mike Mitchell.

That’s a HUGE difference.

I agree RS.
He gets another shot.
But this time....He gets banged pretty hard at the line by Dupree if he lines up on that side.
And gets banged pretty hard by Watt if he starts out on his side.

And then Davis deals with him after his tussles at the line.

And if they move Gronk further out to get away from the banging....
I have confidence in Dupree and Watt, with their athletic ability to still be able to use their range and coverage skills to be the first guy on him....
with S/DB picking him up.

One thing the pats have always done well is move the ball around.

This is why I feel good about next time. Let’s say Sutton gets more reps and improves and we get Haden. Steelers now have 4 CB that can press man or zone. They’ve never been that far with that group before.

I’d be thinking of some combination of like a 5-6 vs pats

I said this in another thread that I'd rather have Mike Wagner at 68 back there than Mitchell. He has ZERO awareness.
