After seeing both of them play, Martin is a better FS. Unfortunatly, that is not saying much.

Exactly, I personally have never mistaken Martin for Ed reed

Martin showed a lot of potential filling in for Godfrey his rookie year, then when he was given the keys to the car, I think, or at least hope, he just took it for granted and wrecked it.

Maybe losing the job humbled him a bit and he's stayed engaged in practice and meetings and is now ready to take over.

Regardless, at least in terms of coverage, we need to make the move.

I have been one of the more outspoken detractors of Sherrod Martin. Before Sunday I was firm in my belief that whatever he brought athletically did not trump his mental lapses on the field. That being said, I hope Sherrod Martin comes in plays well and we never see Nakamura on anything but special teams again.

OJ Atogwe is available. He'd probably be an upgrade considering what we have

This, he use to be one of the best too before the Rams let him go. Atogwe on the downside of his career is still better than Martin and Naka. But of course Hurney wont make that move. smh

Martin is.. Not good, but better than Nakamura. problem is, he's been in Jerry's doghouse for a few years now. thats the reason he lost the starting gig in the first place

Is this the same Martin that even the big cat ripped on last year?

Lesser of two evils indeed. Nakumara just doesn't have the athleticism to play the position. He's to small and can't tackle. I'll go with the player with the higher ceiling, instead of the one with serious limitations.

Watching Naka try to go after that jump ball on White's 60 yard reception is just embarrassing. He looks like he could biff it trying to jump over a curb. I actually swear he got negative height while attempting that "jump".

Put Martin in. At least he has some physical ability. Maybe the benching he received lit a fire under his ass.

Just heard Rivera's presser in which he said he thought Martin did a good job in preseason play, also brought up Jones and Campbell...

I dont understand if all these guys had good camps how do you just hand Nakamura the Job? A career backup/special teamer.

I was joking about it at first and its not gonna happen...but why not at least give Atogwe a tryout to see if he's over the Redskin injury funk?

If not, I'd seriously prefer SS-Campbell & FS-Godfrey before going back to Martin but I'll keep a small jar of optimism in the pantry for Martin regardless.
