To the common eye it might have looked like the Jacksonville Jaguars were daring the Dolphins offense to go deep.

Play after play early on in Friday night's 27-3 preseason win over Jacksonville the Jaguars appeared to line up with a single-safety high look and had its cornerback close to the Dolphins' receivers.

For most offenses that kind of look might warrant a go-route especially if that offense possesses a deep threat like Mike Wallace who averages 17.1 yards per reception in his first four NFL seasons.

Single-safety high appeared to be there periodically every few snaps in the first-team offense's four series.

It was as if the Jaguars were double-daring Ryan Tannehill to go big especially on first down. But he never did.

"I always get excited about that start licking my chops" Wallace said when asked about aggressive coverage. "But a lot of things aren't exactly how they'd seem. They come out and it might look single-high but it is not going to look like that as soon as the ball is snapped. They are going to bail out for the most part.

"It is a little different for me" Wallace said of the aggressive defensive coverage which has often led to big plays for him in Pittsburgh. "Any time I see it I get geek-ed up. I honestly haven't seen it in a while. Certain teams do it but for the most part I don't see that [coverage] too often. Maybe when we played the Jets they would let [Antonio] Cromartie and [Darrelle] Revis do it."

Wallace openly admits few teams in the NFL are bold enough to cover him in that fashion. And he'd honestly be surprised if anyone ever does it in a game that matters.
