    I have something I want top run by you here. If they were as short handed at DB at the end of the game as I am hearing why wouldn't they put Dez in to play center field or at least to keep an eye on CJ down the field. I know the Pats used to do this with Randy Moss. Why not put your best athlete with the best ball skills out on the field to make a play on the ball? It seems like a good strategy to me.

    What are your thoughts on doing something like this?

    You only do that when its going to be a jump ball situation. If you think Dez is your best safety, then you aren't going to do anything meaningful this season anyways

    I remember the Lions way back in yesteryear used to use the very tall Herman Moore as a DB in long bomb types of plays. If I recollect he even had an interception (or two?).

    I would put Dez in Center field with a minute on the clock over Heath any day. Or Hamilton. Let your best athlete try and make a play on the ball.

    I was thinking this morning how much fun it would be to see Dez cover Megatron.

    I'd rather see them win that try something unknown in a close game however.
