John Wendling DB DET Sep 17 '12
Lions S John Wendling was benched during Sunday night's loss to the 49ers.
Wendling started in place of Louis Delmas (knee). He was so bad in coverage that the Lions eventually brought Amari Spievey in. "When we blitzed, we knew they would throw to the tight end," coach Jim Schwartz said. "[Wendling] was isolated, but we have to be able to blitz." Vernon Davis finished with five catches, 73 yards and two touchdowns.
