There were a lot of problems today but im just pointing out this one area. For anybody that wants to give this guy any credit for that INT. They challenged him the entire game and tried to take advantage of the worst guy in the secondary. The past deflection in the endzone was another test, they new how bad this guy sucked and refused to let up off him at all. Jones was silent the entire game until the 4th quarter, i knew something was up the way they were playing offense and they won the game off it. If you play a safety 40 yards off the ball of course teams are gonna be curious why and try to expose that. they forced us to play 11 on 11 today and not 10 on 11 and exposed the weakest link in the D. This is on the coaching staff once again, how the hell did we cut Reggie Smith over this guy? Nakamura really has not done anything all season to deserved to be on the field and they showed us why today.

Yup and our DC did not adjust one bit. There is big line between trusting your guys and leaving them on a fuging Island and McD did that with Naka. He is not a great player and never should have been relyed on after the ATL targeted the second time. Never adjusted to it and cost us the game.

they targeted him all game its a shame really coverage wise gamble and Godfrey did well, definitely loved godfrey's coverage help on julio. Godfrey if not in position to make a play at least punishes receivers for making the catch nakumura barely lays a glove on receivers.

We'd have a pro-bowl FS if we could put Nakamura and Martin together. For what Martin lacks in toughness and tackling ability, Nakamura lacks in athleticism and ball hawking.

The funny thing is, if you go back and watch some of the game, it appeared that we were actually relying on Nakamura more than any other player in the secondary. It may have been because we knew he'd be targeted, but some of the plays where we gave up a big pass, it appeared Nak was telling Norman or the LBs that they were supposed to stay with their man even if he dropped underneath them.

On the INT, it seems like we were playing the seams/post route and using Nak as a sort of "spy" to jump them. It bit us in the butt big time.

Once he looked like someone off of this message board defending that first White TD pass, we should've given Martin a look. They were going after him...

The entire secondary is suspect. After Gamble whom is average himself its basically a free for all. We are making average at best QBs looks like superstars. How can Matt Ryan even still be on the frontpage suggested as a MVP? 7 SACKS don't mean anything when a QB can throw the ball to anyone at will. That's not his talent that's the opponent's weakness! They won the game on some Madden 11 crap! smh

That's what happens when you rely on another team's backup to come and save the day. Our late rd Cb and backup safety have been exposed during the last couple weeks. Big surprise. The worst part is that Hurney had the entire offseason to address the needs but did nothing except bring in backups to compete.

He is a FS....he wasn't on an island.

It isn't McD's fault that Nakamura kept letting guys behind him. he wasn't suppose to do that.....the only way to adjust is to line him up like we did against the NYGs.

Sherrod Martin would have made that play. A safety should never be backpeddling to defend a receiver or throw.

The only average QB we've played so far is Freeman, and he didn't really do much

Nakamura has tackling ability? Lol he side steps the player before he "tries" to tackle him. Michael Turner scared the poo out of Nak on a few runs today.

I thought Norman did a decent job against a great duo but he has a lot to learn.

So he could not have sat him on the bench? That was not in his power?
