I turned the pressure up a bit over the last couple of weeks of the regular season as I started to get a little more comfortable with my CB situation, especially the ability to slot DeMarcus VanDyke in as my Nickel when Shawntae Spencer came back healthy.
It showed a lot against Wichita. 12 QB pressures against Newton to only 5 against Rodgers and by turning the pressure up mostly on 3rd down situations, Wichita's 3rd down conversion rate really dropped. While the game was already pretty much decided by then, the INT/TD when Newton was pressured wrapped the game up.
I warned you fellas; this team took me a little bit of time to figure out how to handle with it's lousy secondary, but it's a contender all the way. I don't think it has the secondary to make the next round, but I'm happy with the AFC (or whatever) championship game. Now it's time to see if they can turn up the heat again and finish this thing.
