    Seemed like the same as what little we've already seen from the guy. He's so much quicker than Sirmon to fill a hole to stop the run. Then he sometimes overruns the play or gets fooled. Looks like he needs reps and some learnin'.

    He blizted a few times, but wasn't very effective. His speed should make him better at that than Sirmon.

    May be a little better at getting off a block than Sirmon, or just running around it.

    It's a very bad D, so I don't see how anyone can object to seeing if him starting from here on out can help and be a step in the right direction.

    Since you can't seem to grasp what I am saying, let me spell it out for you. People are always screaming for the backups to play, thinking they are better than the starters. The coaching staff knows the strengths and weaknesses of the players, and why they are not starting. Yesterday proved exactly why he wasn't in...he made many mistakes. If we had the luxury of getting a huge lead like the Jags did, put him in and let him learn, but you can't depend on a rookie when a game is still in doubt. He missed several tackles, and got caught up in some blocks and couldn't fill the holes, one reason Taylor got so many long runs. We had no choice but to play him, but it was obvious why he doesn't start. Comprende?

    Ah, so in other words it was just like when Sirmon is at MLB, gotcha.
