In response to agill1970's comment:
Devin McCourty had a VERY good year as a rookie at corner, but hasn't been able to even remotely get back to that level thus far. I believe he can be a good/solid second corner, so long as he has someone better opposite him and solid safeties to help bail him out.
Also, why did you choose the word "bail" there? Just wondering. Did Milloy and Clay or Rodney bail out Law and Samuel?
How about this: Any team that doesn't have efficient Safety play from week to week, the CBs won't look as good?
Agree Russ, that is the point. We haven't had good safety nor cb play on a consistent basis, so the whole backend suffers.
I think mccourty is our best safety and he still iS a good corner. Yes, he has regressed, and it makes me wonder if cb is his natural position or safety? The way Dennard has been coming on. Recently, i don't see much drop off between McCourty and Dennard. Dennard and Talib make a good combo. I would like mccourtym and Talib better, but what concerns me more is the safety play than the cb play. If you are consistently giving up 20+ yard plays, and quite a few in the 30+ range where do you place blame? I have seen a few times the cb stop running because he thought he had the safety there as help,pother times on the corner himself.
I am going to say let's roll with McCourty at safety especially on 3rd and longs, Talib and Dennard play corner, cole in the slot, bring on Arrington in nickel. Gregory next to McCourty.
i think Gregory and McCourty are the 2 best coverage safeties we have...start them both...why do we need to start Chung or Wilson? McCourty is as good against the run as either of them and I think a better tackler
