I am not saying that I know more than the coach, but why in the hell didn't Godfrey make a play. You conveniently left out all of what I said about diagnosing the play. Of course I remember Munnerlyn getting beat deep the Dolphins game. I also remember Mitchell getting back just in time to disrupt a deep play at the end of the game. We did not continue to get beat deep at safety over the course of last year. If we did, how did we have the second ranked defense? How did we have the sixth ranked pass defense? Godfrey had over six years to prove he is mediocre. Why keep him back there? This is what Rivera and company thought. Now who is second guessing the coach? I would rather go with Lester again, a healthy Boston, or see the waiver wire unfold. Because like most of the fans on the site besides three of you we are tired of seeing Godfrey's ineptitudes play out,
Robert Lester is a second year player who had three interceptions as an undrafted rookie. He intercepted the game winner vs. the Patriots. He made a play. Do you remember the Arizona game? They started the game off with a play action fake and tried to hit Fitz over the top. Lester didn't bite on the PA fake and made the interception. He made a play. Yeah he is slower, but those are plays that Godfrey never makes. You know how I know? Because we have six years of film.
We can go back and forth, but the coaching staff/Gettleman agree with me. Godfrey was forced to take a pay cut and this is his last chance. After seeing his overwhelming mediocrity, they are disappointed too.
That is why Godfrey cannot move back to safety!
It's utter B.S. to say Godfrey never made a play at the safety position. Dude had 88 tackles 8 PDF and 5 int's in 2010. Does that not count as making plays.
What about the pick 6 against Drew Brees at Boa 2 years ago?
