    Anyone else think Brandon Merriweather deserves a gold star for his performance on Sunday. I thought the guy was a beast he was all over the field in run support and pass coverage. It was very encouraging to see I think this guy is going to be a franchise safety.

    Agreed - he's looked great all year, and especially yesterday. I was impressed with him in run support as well. And the flexibility to play cover at the end of the game, covering the slot WR, that's a bonus, too.

    Merriweather is developing nicely. His insticts are good and he'll just get better with more PT.

    That's true! Wasn't his size one of his "downsides" at first, or am I thinking of someone else?

    Anyways, agreed on Meriweather-he's really getting his stuff together this year:)

    I thought Merriweather looked like the Best DB on the Pats De yesterday. Now that isn't saying too much as the unit stuggled as whole. good signs from him and I think despite stuggling the unit did seem to be performing better as the game went on. Maybe the struggles can be attributed to getting used to things with out Rodney.


    IMO if this team is going to go deep the secondary needs to improve. We don't want to see Cassel getting into shoot outs because the secondary is weak. Good news though is it is an extremely young group which should mean they will be significantly better as the weeks go on.

    Meriweather is gonna keep gettin better. Im a bit concered about durability, but overall he's a gold star on the team. We need a couple more just like him then we'll be ok!

    Re: Brandon Merriweather Gets a Gold Star

    I like both Wilhite and Wheatley too. Let's be honest the key to a good pass defense is really in the front 7. The Broncos have Champ Bailey and Dre Bly and they cant stop anyone. We can win with a mediocre secondary if we get great play from our front 7, which we have the last 2 weeks. If Merriweather plays like he did yesterday he will be at safety for the next 7 years.

    He reminds me of Easy-E:

    "Just rollin' looking for the one they call Easy."

    I like how when someone threatened his friend he pulled out a gun and busted a cap in his ass.

    Re: Brandon Merriweather Gets a Gold Star

    Merriweather needs to be 'great' especially with James 'BAD ANGLE' Sanders back there with him. Merriweather might be our most valuable DB. When Hobbs got hurt, Brandon was switched to CB and Spann came in to play safety. THis guy is balling.

    Why is sanders playing? I mean, nice guy adn all, but really, he should be special teams only. Special olympics only just about the way he's playing.

    Charges were not pressed. I believe Meriweather returned fire, which (again, I believe) is legal in Florida.

    If I remember correct it was his friend who got busted the cap in his ass and Merriweather shot his gun in the air to scare off the other shooter.

    he didn't want to or try to shoot anyone and again if I remember correct he got rid of the gun after the incident.

    Re: Brandon Merriweather Gets a Gold Star


    A few days ago I tried making a case for new posters being restricted to the PS forum for a bit so that some of the crap doesn't get spread all throughout the forum and into each and every thread.

    Your theme-redundant posts are a prime example of what I was talking about.

    OH, boo hoo. IT's not theme redundant. IT's just that no one addesses it except for boo-hooers like you. About a year from now you'll come to the same conclusion yourself. I just see things a little bit earlier than most.

    YOu should be restricted to the homer squad, is right.

    Re: Brandon Merriweather Gets a Gold Star

    maryjane might have gone off a bit too much, but Sanders IS a liability out there. The guy is awful in the open field. We can't have our last line of defense be awful in the open field. BB loves him cause he works hard and I'm sure he does some great things in practice, but from what we've all seen from him during games, he gets caught in 'no mans land' too often and gives up big plays. Play him closer to the line of scrimmage. Give Spann a chance.

    Re: Brandon Merriweather Gets a Gold Star

    I'm very happy with Brandon's play out in the field. He's been an anchor back there this year, and seems to have taken massive strides last off season.

    As far as the Sander's situation...yes, he looks pretty bad. I wouldn't mind seeing Lynch paired with Merriweather. I know lynch is slower, but speed isn't an issue in the back field. Taking correct paths to the ball andplay recognition seems to be what ails the pats at times(from a safety point of view) and I think merriweather could help out some of lynch's slowness. Lynch would basically be replacing Harrison.

    Re: Brandon Merriweather Gets a Gold Star

    My comment had nothing to do with Sanders' play-I could have chosen any maryjane post but this thread happened to be at the top. Redundant,predictable is my point:hijacked:

    Oh, I haven't paid attention to any maryjane post so I wouldn't know what she/he normally posts about.:confused:
