    i think the jump in coverage talent with the woodson signing has a lot to do with his so called decline.

    Last two years. Your the opposing QB. Youve got your number one reciever being covered by al harris. youve got your number 2 covered by ahmad carrol or joey thomas or whoever. Your stupid to try and squeeze one into your number one when your number 2 reciever is either being held or wide open.

    This year: Harris. Woodson. obviously no one is scared of either of them right now. but they are gettin equal passes thrown their way. Its something probally neither one of them are as used to.

    all that and... Kurt Shitenheimer sucks.

    What is just wrong about this little tiff that has happened is some bone head reporter trying stir crap up goes to Harris and misleads him on MM's comments in a way that sounded like the pass protection problems were being put on him.

    Hearing it the way the reporter put it to Harris his comments now make a little more sense. Once he got the whole story he was o.k. with it.

    They have no conscience when it comes to responsible reporting. This guy obviously TRIED to stir things up and was not concerned in the least on how inaccurate he was in describing to Harris what MM said.

    If I were MM I would start culling some of these guys out and not let them be around the guys. That would send a signal to the others to not go there.

    The problem with this theory is that Harris was already pissed off in the preseason about his contract. It has nothing to do with a recent press conference, it has to do with money. No doubt he is pissed off Woodson is making more than him, and isn't playing his best as a result.

    I really don't think Al Harris likes the media people and he's got good reasons. After watching three weeks of locker room questions and press conferences I really truly feel bad for these guys. Some of the questions they get asked consistently are so redundantly moronic I get embarrassed for them.

    Harris is very overrated to begin with.... He wants to be paid shutdown corner money... He is not a shut down / pro bowl corner (either is woodson anymore). I think this year more teams are throwing against him and it is showing he is an average cornerback.

    Well, I wouldn't call him average, because he's definitely better than average.

    The problems in the Pack secondary don't necessarily seem like the players, but more the coaching. I'm seeing some really bad communication between the CBs and the Safeties. Opposing offenses are exploiting this poor communcation. They're plenty aware of it. I'm thinking Kurt Schottenheimer needs to be fired.

    Harris was much better last year, and I really don't see him dropping off in skills this much in one year. When Schottenheimer gets fired at the end of the season, we'll see if I'm right or wrong.

    I think you have to get some sort of undeserved recognition ( SI cover, probowl, huge contract) before you can become overrated.

    I didn't get to watch a lot of 2003 (/w mckenzie) games so I can't really compare is performance now with back then to see if his skills have diminished. He is still the least of my worries though.
