I would just like to point out that according to early reports, Sherrod Martin was benched in favor of Nakwho becuase of tackleing issues.

Martin lead the team in solo tackles Pass defenses and was tied with Luke for tackles. But hey the coaching staff cant be wrong can they?

Now was it that the secondary is better with martin or is it the the Eagles passing game sucks or a combo of both. But I have said it all damn year bench Nakwho and play Martin. Hes better in coverage and I have seen no issues with tackleing this season.

What does my fellow huddlers say?

I've been saying start Martin all along. Nakamura is terrible and RR is a fool for starting him.

The only glaring mistake I saw from him was on the long TD run where he took a bad angle, but other than that I thought he was very solid.

One of many questionable personnel calls in my opinion. It was obvious after ATL that Martin should be the starter.

Also think Adams needs to cover KR and PR. Time to move on from early mistakes.

Also think Gettis should be on the field. Biggest, fastest WR that's not activated because of something personal with the coaching staff. As much as guys disliked Terrell Owens, he started every week. Ego can kill you some times. Or at least get you fired.

Martin has great instincts for a FS, if he could just pair that with consistency and interceptions he'd be a pro bowler.

Not to piss on anyone's parade but that 51 yard penalty on Naka was BS.I thought he made a great play on the ball.

What? I must have smoked some PCP because the pass interference was as clear as day

He had his arm around the receiver before the ball arrived. The ref's are going to call that Pass interference most of the time.

If we could put the midget samurai's head in Martin's body, then we may have something. Martin takes some of the worst angles I've seen past pee wee football.

what I kept hearing from RR concerning martin was-

he wasn't hitting his landmarks (out of position) and he was taking bad angles.


to the folks that want him in the game more........

until that changes in practice, he won't get much PT baby.

but yeah, he needs some pine tar on his gloves or something. that's legal, right? :)
