Bill Walsh once said of a player: βHeβs good enough to lose you games.β Patrick Chung appears to fit in this category. He is good enough to bring in solid play at safety. Yet, he has had pivotal contribution towards ending our season the last two years. Last year, he muffed a well designed fake punt against the Jets. That play contributed heavily towards our loss to Jets in the playoffs. This year in the SB, Belichick calls a perfect defense against the Giants - make them go Manningham! However, Chung gets faked out by Manning and ends up reaching Manningham late. Two plays later, Giants are in field goal range and ready for the win. Does anybody think that these are learning pains Patrick Chung will have to go through before he becomes an elite safety? Rodney Harrison gave us about 3 years of great safety play before injuries began to diminish his effectiveness. We do need such performance from the safety position in next four years (assuming Brady lasts that long) to bring home one or two Super Bowls. .
