    For a guy who regularly plays 95% or more of the defensive snaps he makes no plays.

    So he is basically a poor mans Tulloch. I think that is a solid comparison.

    Nah, this one is not totally useless in coverage

    I'd rather see McCarthy. Fokou is a liability in coverage and at best a neutral in terms of run support. The guy might be "solid," but he isn't going to make any game-changing plays. I think McCarthy has the type of talent to come in and really make an impact on the game. I'd rather take a chance on a playmaker struggling to stay healthy and find consistency than continue to start a guy who is just good enough to get by.

    It's time for McCarthy.

    What does Fokou offer? Stupid penalties and no impact plays. I mean, look at this! This was on the Chiefs' scoring drive after the first Fitztragic pick.


    Just chasing the lead-blocker down the field, that's all.

    Zero awareness and instincts if you're chasing the lead blocker. He's a very good blitzer, but other than that, he brings nothing special to this defense at all.
