Re: Hampton not starting
whether it was because hampton was banged up, or feeling more confident in our base back 7, im not sure we ever went with our nickel package. its probably something we wont use this week either as long as the spurs look alright in pass coverage. i dont think a 4th cornerback got in on a play from scrimmage last week. so while vic would log more snaps if he was completely healthy, it wont change what we're going to do on defense.
our base defense is essentially a nickel defense anyway with the spur being the nickelback. coach ward may feel confident that the spurs can handle the coverage responsibilities in obvious passing situations.
