Martins angles are terrible. He pulled several U turns during the game as he usually does. It's a constant issue. It doesn't look very professional. And we need those INTs

Time to find safeties that can handle the NFL

true that we need upgrades @ safety...at least a FS.

if we can't get jarius byrd then we probably ought to be drafting one early next year.

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.

Sorry, it pissed me off as well but once he wrapped his hands around the WR left shoulder, thats PI every single time.

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.

Really? so then why was he the starting FS last night?

Martin has all the physical skills to be a top tier safety. I don't see a problem with his speed or quickness. However he consistently takes bad angles. Consistently. He was better last night than usual. However we were also playing against Nick Foyles. Every time we play the Saints, Drew Brees looks like he has a hand in the small of his back. I have no idea if it's play recognition or scheme but it happens all the time. Nakumura knows what going on he just isn't physically able to do anything about it. Maybe Martin has gotten better, but not only that touchdown run, but a few others makes me think the only reason Martin looks better is because his play time has been reduced.

I guess he picked it up in practice. Still needs to improve his angles.

The long TD-run was on Martin, two dropped int to boot and you have not played a great game. Just to big of a hole.

He is however awesome at run support tackles every time he aims at the right place and showed it and he is a solid cover guy as long as he remember his assignment (which you sadly have to expect him to doesn't at least once a game).

In my opinion he is not a starter but a decent 3rd safety to have.

Not that Naka is any better, like someone stated the instincts are there but he is just not quick enough. The PI call was not 100% but at least 90, to bad he didn't play the ball with both hand he was in good position to catch it and even if he misses there is not penalty (defensive instinct to blame I guess).

Martin played great last night. Comparing him to Naka is comical. Naka shouldn't even be in NFL.

Nakamura is garbage, Martin is at least an nfl caliber athlete.

Martins tackling is better to in my opinion if he could get better instincts he would be a pro bowl caliber safety.
