Del Rio confirms the defense’s problems with pick routes

Del Rio: 'Full-Speed Ahead' Toward KC

“I don’t know if you call it energy. I thought we played hard the whole night. I thought we broke down on a couple things. We have the guy doubled (on the) 45-yard catch. We have to just be better there. They tried some different pick and wheel combinations and they hit us on one there for about a 33, 34-yard catch where we had handled that same route, same combination earlier in the game and handled it better—we just didn’t handle it well there. We kind of had a couple lapses, whether you call it focus or concentration lapses there, that allows some chunks in getting them some momentum. I think when you couple that with a couple turnovers the next thing you know they’re getting themselves back in the ball game and that’s really what occurred.”

Not a big surprise here, but a reminder for the secondary to utilize more switching like we saw from Chris Harris and Kayvon Webster late in the game.  

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
