In response to mthurl's comment:
I just think the guy is done...cooked. In the very limited times I've had to watch him he has looked like a guy that is stiff, slow and uninterested out there. He has been invisible for the most part.
I was very very skeptical when they signed him - I thought he was too old, but I was hoping he could give us a little something for half the season or so until his legs gave out. It looks like his legs are just too far gone.
I'll be surprised if he makes the cut today, I hope I'm wrong, but this guy is as far away from Rodney Harrison as you can get at this point in his career. I kept waiting for him to lay someone out, but he never came close. I wouldn't be surprised if he just retires this weekend, but it looks like Belichick will handle him with care with this "hamstring injury".
He doesn't play the same kind of role as Rodney, so no one should have been expecting that.
The question was always is he a full time player or a subpackage guy. It's clear to me he is a subpackage guy.
I just think it's odd you'd drag a guy across the country, have him be here, learn the system, be here the whole time and drag it out to the 6 PM cut off to cut him over a hammy tweak.
Meanwhile, Dennard is in court in a week with a hammy all of preseason.
It just doesn't seem like a BB thing to do to a guy with that kind of a resume. Maybe he was playing with the hamstring in these preseason games to get his reps under the condition that he needs the reps in live game action.
Why are they waiting to cut Adrian Wilson? Makes no sense.
I would just keep him Inactive, rest the hammy for the Bills, Jets and Bucs and then cut him loose in your 3rd down subpackage down in Atlanta for matchups on either Gonzalez or jacquizz Rodgers on 3rds.
We have really slow LBs and if the idea is to improve that coverage, so you can play press man, with Logan Ryan, Dennard and Talib, all superb press man guys, why on earth would you not use a guy who has looked great on 3rd downs in those formations?
Who is going to do it?
We've been looking for it for years.
Collins has looked better than AWilson in that role
