    If this is true, the positive is that Mayo's problems are correctable with experience. Many rookies have problems like this off the bat.

    What groupd of LBs wouldn't have trouble playing the pass if they read run first?

    I do agree that they may be overblowing that part of the problem, but many LBs can make the adjustment quickly to drop back into coverage. Mayo will learn.

    Adalius is not considered our most athletic back right now?

    Must be the money weighing him down.

    Cheap shot? Adalius is listed at 270lbs and looks even bigger. Should he be able to run like a 215lb running back?

    IF its true? LOL

    if I can see it as often as i do, it means that Mayo is indeed out of position on a good number of plays...

    its that he is young though...he will learn, im not concerned

    If Belichick did not think Mayo was the man, Seau would have already been here.
