I was surprised when I looked it up, but per PFF Godfrey actually ended up grading out positive ( ever so slightly) in coverage for the year. In fact five of his last six games, he graded out positive. Who knows if that will transfer over, but its something I suppose.

And there was a overall grade improvement when he switched to FS which follows Rivera 's assessment . Though some of that would have to do with the fact he wasn't involved in as many running plays, which he is pretty awful at.

My PFF ran out...he was graded as standard ole Godfrey when mine ran out midseason

Where did he finish in missed tackles? He was leading all secondary guys midseason

You might have been looking at his overall grade, which is easily in the negatives. Thats due to a pretty bad grade in run defense and pass rush. Also, he didn't really " pick it up" till after midseason.

He finished with 13 missed tackles. Which would put him as seventh worst.

He will play FS for a year....then face a paycut/cut scenario pending he doesn't turn into Ed Reed.

He moved to SS bc he sucks at FS....



he moved to SS because we thought Sherrod was our future at FS

It's going to be nice when we cut Godfreys ass right before his cap hit increases....

And then bring in a real safety via draft or FA...one can hope

I think he is a better SS than FS....only think he does well IMO is blitz and occassionally land a flesh bomb near the line of scrimmage.

In career he has been horrible at coverage assignments at FS...again THE Sherrod Martin looked better overall at FS and he sucked.

But I can handle it for a year....



BUUHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA!!!!

He did for when he came in after Godfrey was injured for 3 games. Then for probably 3 games after that. Since that point "THE Sherrod Martin was horrible". Godfrey worst games were never...and I repeat never as bad as Sherrod Martin's worst games.

The sooner we replace half the defense the better. It's a shame because I feel like we are trying to dig ourselves out of debt for the next 3 years instead of buying nice players.

Still think we should sign Michael Huff to compete for a spot, guy plays safety but lined up at corner for the majority of last season, so obviously has some coverage abilities. The flexibility would be nice too.

Issue is people think Godfrey is better than Martin....

They both suck, Godfrey career wise here...is no better

Does anybody know if Martin is gone or not? Have not heard any news so assuming he is out.
