I was not thrilled with the acquisition but A.J. Green could be set up for a huge day.

Either cb he is matched up against is in trouble. I’m assuming they will double Hopkins.

AJ Green can basically be almost a decoy and this offense can still be good if Kirk and Moore produce.
If he has more weeks like last week, he won't have any benefit as a decoy; you have to carry the threat of punishing a defense to be effective as a decoy.

If last week was only an outlier, and he does still have something in the tank, he may well work out in a decoy role, or rather, in a "which guy do you cover" kind of situation.

I’m curious about Collins. How could he get so much hype and not be on the field more than he was against Tennessee. Collins clearly has talent and a tantalizing upside, but I’m glad the Cards didn’t ship off Hicks, last year’s starter.

After thinking about this it appears to have been the right decision. Coupled with the fact that Hicks is okay against the run and the Titans offense is predicated against the run.
If Collins fills the wrong slot we are watching Henry rumbling down the field.
From what I seen when Collins was on the field he was consistently around the ball.

quick look says Collins was on the field in run down situations and came off for nickel

Tenn basically abandoned the run with 20 mins left in the game

My guess is they will match Peterson against Green and roll coverage to Hopkins. I was not impressed with Green week 1 outside of his ability to play outside and enable Kirk to run in the slot.
