How Dumb is Greg Rosenthal? [Article]

Okay, who is the most talented football player in our secondary? Proven time on the field factors in I would think....Godfrey has always had the physical tools to be great IMO.

If you say it is far from the truth....then you must have someone clearly better in mind

 

Talent and play are two different things... I would personally say that DJ Campbell has more talent than godfrey. He played extremely well at strong safety and made open field tackles and didnt get beat deep in 2-zone situations.

I didn't read the article yet....but the 2 quoted statements seem about right.

Godfrey IMO is the most talented player in a weak secondary. Physically he is impressive....it doesn't always translate to sound S play

Olsen is in the 10ish area...hard to argue he deserves a clear spot in a top 10 considering his best year of his career is 800 yards or so

 

Name ten better and defend them.

Aaaand the contrarian arrives.

 

Godfrey cant tackle in the open field, thats hardly "talented". I like godfrey too. If it was my choice it would be Godfrey at FS and Campbell at SS. But to say godfrey is the most talented is far from the truth.

 

 

 

Man it's hard to defend our secondary.

They are "below average" until they prove otherwise.

Don't need to...I said he is 10ish. You can interchange and argue 5-15. A lot of aging TEs and talented TEs cloud that field.

For example, you probably would argue he is better than a guy like Mercedes Lewis. I think Olsen is on the same tier

Olsen had the 4th highest receiving yards for TEs.

 

He had the 6th most receptions.

 

He had the 6th highest ypc.

 

He had the 6th most catches for 1st down.

 

Tied for 10th most TD catches.

 

You were saying?

My 5th spot is tough, probably would still have an aging guy like Gates or Witten

From the stats I quoted, more like 5-ish.

Fair.

 

I would argue that Greg is closer to 5 than 10.

I do agree, however keep in mind that with a good, consistent pass rush, playing in the secondary becomes a little easier. while CJ and Krak did very well, we didnt have interior pressure to disrupt the pocket and shorten receiver routes and/or force the QB into a bad throw.

 

I'm excited to see how Monsters Inc changes all of this in the coming season.

The other one is how he said maybe the Panthers can "make a leap" into the top 10 in defense. Oh really bro, the "average" defense was already in the top 10, even with all the holes and injuries.
