Easy to say from the sidelines.
He's still our best cover man, but he is our worst tackling CB
No. No, not really. Has nothing to do with his INT count lol. Not really, if he was, he'd be there.
Who on the bench is a better tackler than Williams, at CB?
I expect (hope) that Woodson is back Saturday. Hope he was able to somehow add some bulk around that collar bone.
Peterson could crack it on his first tackle attempt of him.
Between the idiotic penalty on the off side of the play and the play where he could have blocked the hole Peterson was coming he was the difference maker, for the Vikings......
He's our best cover corner guys. He is. That's why he's always on the best receiver. Whoever said "trade him" will change their tune if they get rid of him and we get lit up over and over.
That said, he clearly doesn't want to tackle AP and the vikes don't have any receivers that would make it off our practice squad, so I'd be fine with them putting Woodson in (provided that he will hit the way he always has) or House (if healthy) or even Jarrett Bush who is always willing to hit. We need 12 guys on the field to bottle up AP, so trying to do it with ten won't work.
I don't think his problem is injury related, he needs to grow a bigger set.
Bush is. House is not... he's soft & frail too... and always hurt.
Tramon wasn't the only reason we lost but that penalty sure didn't help any. Our D MUST step it up. Of course those blown calls didn't help us out either
You're right, I mixed up Jennings and Burnett. I apologize!
But we have to realize, Williams is a good corner.
But I do agree, he needs to freaking tackle. Haha.
IMO he should have a limited role against the Vikings, use Woodson in the box, Shields and Hayward in the outside and Tramon in the slot in the nickel formation. The only game we could really use him is at Atlanta vs Juilio Jones, or if we make it to the SB vs Andre Johnson both games with help from the safety
Nah, not in the slot. You can move Hayward to the outside with Wood in the slot or vice versa, stick Bush in for Tramon or at FS. Plenty of other more optimal options
Yeah, Tramon at the slot is a terrible idea. The nickel has to make more tackles, not fewer. You want to make a statement to Tramon, start Hayward and Shields at corner. Keep Woodson at safety. Bring the Woodson into the box. When they go nickel, kick Hayward to the slot, Tramon in his usual spot.
Nothing will wake up a vet like losing a start to a rookie because you won't tackle.
Whatever we do im sure we will have woodson in postion to help against the run and thats a good thing.
Whitt compares Shields' year to Tramon's in 2010, calls Shields the best tackling CB we have. Also says CB position in competition and Tramon not guaranteed starting spot.
Shields, the man who was benched because he couldn't tackle. Our best tackling CB, ladies and gentlemen...
No where near a pro bowl corner. 2010 he was but that was a long time and steep decline ago.
He constantly gets torched by #1 WRs. He is a weak point on the defense.
I question anyone's football knowledge if they think next season 37 yr old should be our #1 corner. Dear god that's such an idiotic thought. People must only see the name on the jersey. Should driver be our #1 WR too?
Shows what a little hard work and an entire offseason devoted to nothing but improving tackling can do.
Regression and injury on the part of your peers may also help
