- Newman didn't get beat for a TD and only gave up 400 yards all season.
- Newman covered the #1 WRs like Owens, S. Moss, Fitz, etc.
- WRs that Newman "covered" scored many TDs (like S. Moss) and posted WAY more than 400 yards
- If he got beat, it must've been a zone. Not his fault then.
BH Analysis: Worthless thread. If you are only going to count times he didn't play in a zone and only played 1on1 with the WR, you'll seriously cut down the sample size. I don't see the point.
Newman switches from the slot to the outside ... given WR sets. On 2 WR sets, Newman covers the 1WR. On 3 WR+ sets, Aaron Glenn covers the outside WR, and Newman covers the slot.
I don't have game footage of every game, but I know for a fact that the two Santana Moss TDs were a result of poor zone coverage of AARON GLENN and ROY WILLIAMS. Not Terence Newman.
