That's not real accurate, Josh Thomas almost always played press man, where as Norman would as long as it was a WR he wasn't scared of.

I like Rhodes better and think he'd fit just fine. With Rhodes' size his advantage is his ability to get physical at the line and redirect or disrupt the timing of the route.

Could just be the small sample size but that couldn't be further from the truth in the first half of the game against the Saints to end the season. Charted every defensive snap (28 of them), and Thomas was lined up off his man (by at least 7 yards) at a ratio of exactly 3:1 (21 snaps of the 28). Like I said, I would have to watch more games to get an accurate sample, but in that one I picked he was hardly lined up in press almost all the time....

Edit: Second half was much closer with a 20:17 Off to Press ratio but still not almost always press....

why would they let one Josh play press man while the other player 10 yards off, and who is better playing in a press man coverage. i remember seeing a lot of cover 2 and 3 with some off man the entire year, but cannot recall any press man.

Thomas did play a good amount of press man and yes Dockery was playing off. Thought this to be a bit odd myself.

Josh Norman hardly played press man, when that was his strength.

Norman didn't nor did he display any strengths other than tackling his man after caught the ball. Norman and Dockery both played off, really only Thomas was in press a significant amount.

I don't like that you didn't take advantage at all with all the young DT coming out in this draft. It's to many DT's in this draft not to at least get one. Then I rather get a Vet CB then add another young one to a already very young group. With all the CB in FA now it will be better to get one there.

Considering the NTs in the draft, I just don't feel there's many that are gonna be in the right place for us. John Jenkins, Brandon Williams (who I reallllly want), and Geathers are the only ones I'd like us to get. If we don't re-sign D'wan, it's a whole new game and I think Richardson and some other are a definite possibility but we'll just have to wait and see.
