Pats1, I just wanted to say thank you very much for continuing to post the various notes. Much appreciated.
The coaching staff really likes those miniature CBs. We will get burnt by that sometime this season for sure. Disappointed in those draft picks. Sheppard still available? Isn't he at least 6' or 5' 11"? Why does our DB lineup look like a "cattle call" for a part in the "Wizzard of Oz"? Even our starting safety (???) Sanders is what, really 5' 8" and he ain't Bob. If I hear the words "great leaping ability" once more, I will go crazy. My dog has great leaping ability but I doubt she can break up a pass to Plexico.
Other than this and our "freak" tight end who can't catch for the last three years ("Why do we need Shockey??????" ,the big shots say on this forum, and he would have cost us a Wheatly and a Slater), I am positive about this year.
1.) Lito is listed at 5'10" on NFL.com, making him shorter than the 5'11" Bryant
2.) Watson caught 49 passes in 13 games the year before last.
The new non pushout rule should help us a lot on sideline passes. High pass that our CB can't get his hands on ? Play the body out of bounds. Won't help over the middle, of course, but it will help us a lot, I think, at the sidelines.
Is it really fair to judge these guys in practice?
I mean, it is Randy Moss they are trying to cover? If they are close, doesn't that translate into "shut down" coverage against 99% of the rest of the league?
i like the idea of our small corners playing against randy moss in practice.
you don't get any better practice than that.
Covering Jericho Crotchery should be a breeze after that.
good call music man. I never thought of that.
BB should be all over this and i love it that there's a rule that actually benefits the defense for once.
