Maybe time for Capt to come off the bench.

I'm sorry but how many 3rd and long plays do we have to see Capt give up.

Coaches need to figure out Capt is best as a nickle. Time to give Butler a shot while Hogan gets practice time and works his way on the game day roster.

Agree with this. The 3rd down play on the drive where the Falcons either tied the game or took the lead when he gave up the long pass was a killer.

Butler has played great since his acquisition, he's been well coached in NE.

Captain has the potential to be a great nickel, but he shouldn't be a starter. The Butler pick up was excellent.

He has definitely been picked on all year. I like Captain tho, he has a lot of heart but i think the writing is on the wall for him. I think a solid dime back at best, Butler has been solid enough to keep on the outside and i hoping Hogan can be a good nickel for right now. Gamble and Butler are just not getting tested like captain is and in those situations you have to step up at some point and make a play so the offense will respect you. Hopefully he does.

Their is a reason why teams are not trying Gamble and Butler but going at Capt like a fly at a poo farm.

Yeah, he's 5' 2" trying to cover an NFL receiver.

Kudos to the guy who made this thread! If they are not going to use Captain the way he should be positioned then I have an idea since we are making changes to the D. Switch Captain and Edwerds! Let Captain go back to returning punts and let's see if Edwerds can use his long body in coverage. I know it's sarcasm speaking but I really haven't understood Nanee playing over Lafell either.

I don't know any franchise players that come off the bench. I don't know any Olympian that comes off the bench. I don't know any All-Star that comes off the bench. I don't know any former MVP that comes off the bench. I don't know any first team All-NFL player that comes off the bench. Why Capt. Munnerlyn?:D

    • Sure, discuss away. Like Montsta has pointed out already, Fournette is an unknown outside of the serious football world.  The only place he is likely commonly known is the Deep South, and the Deep South is definitely not known for being cutting-edge trailblazers in the world-wide fashion scene. So, do explain to all of us schlubs how Leonard Fournette being provided free high-fashion shoes raises the status and profile of a world-reknowned designer.
    • LOL, have you not noticed the trend of athletes and their fashion sense? NFL.com has red carpet videos and reviews: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-draft-red-carpet http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-videos/0ap2000000348360/Top-3-best-dressed-on-NFL-Draft-Draft-red-carpet Even B list stars get free high fashion. Are you really going to tell me that only A list stars get dressed for free? Sorry guys, if you've missed the fashion revolution of the NFL, you aren't watching close enough. It's just funny that it's out of the question to think that a player, who might be the most discussed draft prospect, could get free swag from designers. Do you really think Cam isn't getting free stuff from designers who want him to wear it and post pictures for his followers? It's still a violent sport folks, but damn, too funny. I'm done, I don't even care about fashion. I have no idea whose shoes Fournette was wearing.
