His guilty verdict is suspended. A trial de novo removes that conviction. If he were convicted, he would be serving some sort of punishment, whether he appealed or not. The fact that Hardy is not serving any sort of punishment for his "conviction" leads me to believe that he is innocent. After the trial de novo, Hardy will have his verdict. An appeal at that point would not remove the conviction until and unless the appeal reversed the conviction.


tl;dr; Due process is important. Shut up if you have not studied or are not studying the law in law school.

Again, fair point made by you. But if I may redirect. It seems to me that the safety position was created to keep from getting beat over the top. This may not be the case for this particular play but it just looks like Godfrey is unaware of the possibility that the play could go where it ends up going. His awareness is atrocious and if he's not put in exactly the right spot by the coaches he is utterly useless.

Let me ask you: if Godfrey goes to defend the sideline and McCown hits the seam in the endzone, would you still be upset with Godfrey for not anticipating the pass going to the seam?

Holy S#$#!!!!  You must be new. 


When the RJ Stanfords- Sherrod Martins - Josh Thomas - Josh Norman -Brandon Hogan's, And this case Melvin White don't hold up or miss assignments, Charles Godfrey looks bad. 


When the Chris Gambles, Ken Lucas, Richard Marshalls were playing he was a pro-bowl alternate and got the big contracts.   


Is he Ed Reed in his prime?  Hell to the no.  Has he lost a step or 3 from injury? Yes sir.   But he gets blamed for a lot of stuff that isn't his fault.  But I guess blaming the safety is the safe thing to do.


I'm not new per se. I've had my account for a while but only like to post when I have something that I deem worthwhile to say, albeit in the gameday threads I will post out of excitement.


Moving on, I completely agree with you! Safety is one of the hardest positions to play mentally in all of football. He is the last line of defense often in charge of cleaning up the mistakes made by others. If the fullback in the Bucs game had scored on the long run, it would be on Decoud for not being there to get him instead of on Kuechly for filling the wrong hole. 


Every mistake can and will be pinned on one of the safeties, no matter what someone else did.

Go look up the advanced stats from his time as a starter.

Melvin White missed his jam, but Godfrey was still out of position. I didn't see the seam route on the initial replay, but if the nickel or LB is playing deep enough in the middle, Godfrey had no reason to be that far up.

I'm not rallying against him for one play yesterday, he has been horrible for a long time. I advocated that he be moved to corner before he ever had the injury, but now he is coming off of that injury and appears even slower to react as a result.


I am with you on the cornerback transition, and the play where he made the tackle on third to end their drive he was playing nickle. I think that is where he belongs.


He needs to be an inside the box safety/nickle, something like a rover.


Also, the play looked like a PA, which probably froze the LBs and cause Godfrey to hesitate to drop back into his zone. It looks like the PA is what kept White from pressing. Either way, the defense was beat, but we won and they will adjust, both White and Godfrey.

Godfrey had two men coming into his zone, one down the seam and another along the side-line. If White disrupts the outside receiver, then Godfrey potentially has more time to get over. 


People can be upset with Godfrey all they want, but they should hold White equally responsibly in this touchdown. I just don't think Godfrey is as bad as people on this forum seem to think.
