Indeed. Rivera talked about him getting dirty eyes in the backfield and getting beat deep in camp. That is what he has always done. He has never been that good to me and this was a last ditch effort to keep him on the team. Wilks and the new coaches had to be disappointed with his play. There was a huge causation between Godfrey gong out for the year and our pass defense finishing sixth. Hell. Lester made instinctive plays in his first year that I have never seen Godfrey make.
There is no evidence at all to indicate that Godfrey's being on the sideline improved the defense - coincidence does not equal causation. That said, what's done is done and the reality is that he now has to be a good corner to stick around, and for whatever reason he's struggling with the change.
