Too many people overlooking Godfrey and what he brings because of improved front four play and our ability to plug in anybody back there and look respectable. Godfrey is a defensive playmaker in the secondary, which is something we're woefully short on. Having Godfrey back there improves us immensely. Mitchell and Godfrey would be a fantastic safety tandem.
I hate to be the dissenting opinion but I think it was a ballsy move by a coach that wanted to win in a BAD way.
I mean seriously, how many other coaches would put their neck on the line like he did?
Plus, it makes the game soooo much more fun.
If he tried that kinda crap against the Panthers I would be furious. I think hypocrisy is allows when it comes to our boys.
Which is true, but we ran man more than usual against Miami
Most people don't rock with Norman because of that Buffalo TD. You can't blame that loss on him though. Luke had a killer PI. And those were the days when Ron wasn't Riverboat Ron. We played that last drive like some girls, just like last season and 2011
I always said if you play Norman, let him stick to a guy and play man. That's the issue. I wonder though if we had better corners would we play man more often. I do however have no concerns about Norman getting beat deep, its the underneath routes and confusion in a zone I'm concerned with
One guy playing man while everyone else is playing zone? That'd be tough to make work.
I could see trying that approach If you had a shutdown corner you wanted to blanket the other team's top guy. As a way of hiding a deficiency, not so sure.
RG3's knee may not be hurting as much or at all anymore, but missing the whole offseason is clearly hurting him. I think he comes back strong next season.
I think it's his ego hurting as much as anything else.
People who breeze through high school and college sometimes wind up ill-prepared for the real world while people who have had experience facing adversity are prepared for the 'slings and arrows'. It's why the people voted 'most likely to succeed' sometimes don't.
Who knows? Maybe the scrutiny Newton faced early on was a good thing. Griffin had it relatively easy, but now that the pressure's on, he's folding.
You know, the telling thing to me is that Cam's problem was that he obsessed over his mistakes, demanding self-perfection. RG3 seems to not want to acknowledge when he makes mistakes. That's a huge difference.
I'll take a guy who beats himself up over a guy who won't face his errors ten times out of ten.
