I wish they hadn't stolen game rewind from me...cause I'd love to cite examples.
Carter played all over the field this season actually. I think it has a lot to do with how good he was that you didn't notice. It was much more obvious on the coaches film.
Probably the biggest change this year is that they were playing a LOT of man-to-man and they were doing it based on matchups. Generally JDR stuck Champ on the other teams best receiver and then found the best matchup for Carter and Harris. Every corner (outside of zone) was really playing all over the field.
