The man deserves his own thread after all the heat he's taken over the years. Today was the first game that it felt like he really put it altogether.

I've said over the last two years that his support in the run game has greatly improved, but I still felt he was lacking in the pass defense department. When Graham caught that first TD, I thought it was going to be just another day at the office.

But, he may have single-handedly turned the game around. Great patience and read on his pick and I was so happy to get a pick-six after all these years without one. It seemed to give him even more confidence as well. He laid a couple of good licks on folks, but I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED his hit late on Graham. Loved it. Give him something to think about for next game.

I really feel he performed like the safety we've been waiting on and set the tone.

The man has taken his lashings around here, now give him some props. He showed out today and we needed it. I hope he keeps it up for the rest of the year.

I'll probably never be his biggest fan, but I'll give him kudos for an overall good performance today.

I think the Jimmy Graham's TD was hard to defend, I think he was thinking Jimmy was gonna go further in the endzone for a jump catch in the back of the end zone.... But the Pick 6 was a great play........

Really liked Godfrey's play today. If he can get consistent and continue to play at a high level I'm hoping he can at least prove to us that he is deserving of his contract. I've always liked Godfrey but he does frustrate me quite often.

Can anyone post a clip or .gif of his hit on Graham? After his TD, Graham took a beating today and that was great to see.

Dumb fans will always hate unless he performs at Ed Reed level year after year.

Godfrey is a good Safety. What improved is our defensive line, that makes him look a hell of a lot better.

Yeah Godfrey was play was good, he's is def not the safety I'm worried about.

Also Charles Johnson should get most of the credit for that INT.

I don't think anyone is expecting him to be Ed Reed... He has had troubles in the past, especially with TEs in man coverage. But, he showed out today and showed what he can be. I really hope he maintains this level of play, it was great to see!

Some of the early problems I blamed on schematic issues.

No reason in the world they should have given so much cushion that Graham could just catch right on the goal line and fall in.

I've always liked Godfrey, and think he takes too much of a beating, I like his game, I wish he'd bring his hands more when he tackles, glad to see him make a great play today and get in the end zone.

Charles played excellent today. So did Josh Norman and Gamble (per usual). Really, really happy about our secondary's performance.

Getting pressure on Brees was definitely a huge factor

While we're talking about the secondary, although I love Captain Munnerlyn's heart and fire, thank you coaches for starting Josh Norman instead.

Munnerlyn is much better suited to a reserve role.
