    5 times a game at Pac and Rey. Somehow doubt it.

    if we get Asante Samuel, who stock over at titanscentral says is the main guy we will go after- than what will become of Reynaldo, I don't think he beats Finnegan from that NB spot, Finnegan has already become one of the better NB's in the NFL, so do we put him in different packages or what, and do you guys think Andre Woolfolk is gone next season?

    If we sign a top CB (I'd rather have Clements), Hill will become the top backup CB (not nickelback).

    I think Hill could possibly be a nickle candidate
    or maybe FS :brow:

    I agree for once. I think we should keep Hill. He's not a bad guy for depth. He's just not starting material. He's in the top 10 worst starting corners in the league.

    Oh, I am prefer Samuel BTW... He's younger and had a better year. Also, he might even be cheaper too.

    I don't think Hill is physical enough to be NB.

    I don't know how they calculate those numbers. There are times that we are in zone. If the passes are completed in the soft spot, I don't think they count against anyone (except for the scheme).

    Obviously, I am not saying that we have only had 74 passes thrown against our secondary, but possibly what that means is we have had 74 passes thrown to Hill and Pac in man coverage.

    For one, the site clearly say these aren't complete stats, so no they're not saying that only 74 passes were thrown against Pac and Hill all season.

    Secondly, let's not forget that there are more players on defence than the CB's who have coverage assignments. Obviously a number of passes are against Hope, LT, Bulluck, etc.

    And Gunny, sorry dude, but any way you look at it, Hill giving up that many yards per attempt means he's not defending the passes well enough. If he has a 50% pass defence score, it would mean that every completed pass had to be for an avg. of 20 yards, which is ridicolous.

    Are we all mind readers here? I didn't mention Hill. I am talking about the stats in general.

    sheesh just because I like the guy don't mean I defend him to all end.

  10. All I have to say is.. regarding our corners.


    In every game I can remember, 3 - 5 times when the ball is thrown to Hill's side, he could be right on the man, and NEVER looks bad.. or looks back TOO LATE. I honestly seen a couple of plays when the WR was running, turned his head and put his hands up.. Hill kept pursuing the man, when he could have clearly turned around and deflected the ball. The guy just can't seem to find the ball. He should be replaced with Asante Samuel or atleast a *decent* corner back who can atleast find the ball.


    Pac-Man isn't Deion yet, but he has the talent. And he will make it to that level.
