Not true.

Our coverages were changed around a lot.

Go back and count the amount of times Mays attempted to jam Welker or their TEs at the line.

Mays not only missed completely but lost steps in coverage as a result. He wasn't asked to go around in coverage a lot but specifically in between the hash marks over the middle. With such limited area he STILL failed misereably to even jam a guy in Welker who was half his size and failed to keep up with them to make the tackle when they did catch the ball.

Combine that with his awful run defense and it completely changed the shape of our defense.

I don't know about the Cardinals but the Seahawks have one the best collective DBs who are very physical and very good in coverage. Our safeties are not.

Their LBers are also much better in coverage.
