He broke up two passes in the end zone this year, by hitting the receiver just as they jumped up and caught the ball.
Otherwise, he is a step late, and shows ZERO anticipation in the passing game. He takes terrible angles.
His tackling is some of the worst for a safety I've ever seen - he shoulder tackles, often closing his eyes and completely missing or bouncing off. Unfortunately, that has now transferred to a number of our other
DB's as well.
Other than LineBackers, your safeties should easily be your best tacklers on the team - not even close.

Easy upgrade or at least similar production from a much younger/cheaper/tougher tackling player please!
I've never understood why anyone would want him out there, and the 'we have bigger problems' excuse is lame. He is our worst player on defense if you look at our lineup next year, there are problems that are equal but none are that much bigger than the need to upgrade the talent at safety to support the CBs we spent so much money on.
Keeping a 30 year old below average safety will haunt us all next season if we keep Sensy in a starting role.
