With Jimmy Wilson out of today’s game with an injury, it’s going to force second-year cornerbacks Will Davis and Jamar Taylor into action against an elite receiving corps. Both have received playing time throughout the season in various packages but neither have really separated themselves from each other and instead, have been developing at the same pace.
“I think it has been comparable. I think that’s probably the best way to describe it,” Joe Philbin said. “They have both certainly shown improvements from a year ago. There’s a lot of football left to be played. I anticipate them getting better throughout the course of the year, but it’s not a real huge difference right now. The way I evaluate it is what I see with my own eyes, in the practice film and the game film. That’s how I really base a decision.”
We’ll probably see both Taylor and Davis manning the outside receiver in three or more receiver sets with Cortland Finnegan moving to the slot. While Davis has shown the tendency to hit a home-run, he also loses his guy in coverage from time to time. Taylor is more consistent, but won’t always make that spectacular play. We’ll see what happens today and hopefully, they’ll be able to hold their own.
