In response to DougIrwin's comment:
When you have a torn ACL you might be a liability, but in 2010, 2011 and 2012 he wasn't. His zone pick of Flacco in the 2011 title game was a thing of beauty.
He also had an outstanding SB, too.
Why do people not take into consideration an injury that affects what a player would normally do?
Imagine Bruschi sucking wind and trying to cover people in today's game? There aren't many 3 down LBs who thrive in coverage. There just aren't.
Yeah the pick was a thing of beauty, right place right time.
Seriously man, if you sit here and say Spikes WASNT a liability in coverage you are lying to yourself. Compare him to Collins, Mayo, and Anderson he looks like a scrub in coverage. He was great at the LOS but struggled anywhere else.
Okay so there aren't many 3 Down LBs who can cover, that is true but that also doesn't give Spikes a pass for being bad in coverage, because he was, just facts
Certainly not a strength, but in zone he was fine when healthy. You are not remembering correctly and taking the anti-BB bait.
Please don't insult my intelligence either. Collins is a freakish athletic player. He and Spikes's skill sets are nowhere near the same.
Not facts at all.
