He played way better than Nakamura tonight. Martin showed Rivera how stubborn and boneheaded he is. Should've started from Week 1.

b.) out of position- I don't know if this is from laziness in not learning the playbook properly or he just can't handle the responsibilities of an NFL safety. Either way he was out of position a LOT in 2011.


He was in position a LOT on November 26th, 2012, and making great tackles. I don't argue FS is still a big need, but he's played infinitely better this year than Nakamura or himself last year.

We have a safety who can position himself 50/50 with Sherrod that can;t catch worth a sh*t rather than a shrimp who can't do sh*t no matter what with Nak-Attack

He is playing better than Nakamura.

I can't believe we have safeties that play on run and passing downs. What a joke. Just play Martin and deal with it. He wasn't the reason Bryce Brown was always on the second level.

Even without the ST play, he played well tonight. People hating on him for not making the two picks, come the fug on. Like I said in the other thread, if it had been Nakamura the passes would have been completions. He made one mistake, less than perfect angle on the long run (didn't look like he would have gotten him anyway unless he had been playing Nakamura style, 40 yards deep) and the rest of the game he was making good tackles all night long. He deserves praise for this game, he played well. Not perfect, but well.


In order for our team to move forward we need guys to finish plays. We don't need any more coming up short. Martin jumped the route and then dropped the INT. he's a professional. Make the play. It cost us 3 points.

Time to find guys that can finish and close.
Time to find guys who take advantage.

New GM will do this hopefully

I still can't believe we picked Nakamura over Reggie Smith. I guarantee Smith would have played better than the swordless samurai has this year.

I think he might've been our best FS option but he got hurt and we cut him before he had a chance to come back from the injury.
