    I think we missed Roy a bit in run support this year. Chances are he doesn't blow both tackles like Hamlin did on those two huge runs against the Ravens, but the money he's making is a little ridiculous considering he's not an every down player.

    ...and that safety will be a big physical free safety playing the SS position.

    It's a trickle up effect. The NFL is almost forced to adopt more spread offenses, because all of the coaching and player talent infusing into the league from college and high school come from spread offenses. Eventually the NFL coaches have to make the best of what they have to work with, and now that's players who have played in spread offenses. You don't see many fullbacks coming out of college because they aren't implemented in the spread. I was reading a quote by an NFL general manager the other day lamenting that it's impossible to find all around TE's coming from college, because they're all 235-240 lbs. TE/WR hybrids who play spread out from the line of scrimmage. Chan Gailey had to implement the spread last year in Kansas City because it was an offense Tyler Thigpen knew from college.

    All of whom get burned as much as Roy.

    Belichick is trying to psyche us out. If the Cowboys cut Roy, the Patriots will pick him up and turn him into a monster again.

    Belicheck takes players who perform on the field, so he won't be foolish enough to consider Roy Williams.

    And I think we will see larger CB playing and ultimately teams will have 3 or 4 starting in the secondary...the current safety is obsolete.

    and get payed a lot less to do it while getting the same results....

    Like I said if he still blew people up then every part of his game would improve because he makes players play timid and do things slower.

    I seriously wonder if he was on steroids at OU and once he got to the league the results he had from it only lasted so long.
