Yes or no?
Abso-freakin-lutely.... he is a great run stopper but that's it! If he has to break on a ball and take an angle. FORGET IT!!!
:laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2: ,you're kidding right?????Please tell me you're not serious.
yea, we'll ONLY remember the times he got burned, screw all the INT's he's gotten or just excuse it away.
It's a yes or no question. You may answer or not. It's up to you.
from what I saw at the game Sunday,yes!!!!!!Roy was left deep by himself,playing the free safety spot.Roy belongs up on the LOS,and in cover 2.Roy cant cover the whole field deep,especially alone.
How about a new Poll...
How man SS's in the NFL are NOT a liability in coverage?
And I'm talking man 2 man coverage. Not even Ed Reed has great man 2 man cover skills. He's great in zone (the best IMO) but not man 2 man.
and who can cover the "whole field deep"?
What about the one's he has dropped as well? There have been a few. He makes good plays and he makes bad plays. All players do but some his mistakes are HUUUGE to. To me that = an average player.... That's what he is and I know it bothers some of his apologists but that's reality...Homer Logic may dictate something else but I don't use it.
read the last part of that please.
the "alone" part? i read it. so, phrased in that way it sounds like roy can't do it alone, so we cay he can't do it PERIOD.
no one. yet we flog roy.
he's had a few bad games, to be sure. now go name me ANY SS (or any other position) who's been in the NFL for awhile who's not had a bad game or two?
Yes, cuz it's not normal for a DB to drop an INT. Roy is the only one that ever does it.
Yeah and trying to use the "how many has he dropped" logic isn't homeristic?
so don't. but now go compare roys stats to the top 5 SSs in the league and how does he compare?
blind bashing is about as irritating as homerism.
This is hilarious.
As Rack stated, name us a SS who is great in man to man coverage and not a liability....
No excuses, Iceberg. If Roy is not perfect in coverage, then he must be horrible in coverage. Cuz you and I both know that other SS's in the league cover like Deion Freakin' Sanders.
But the only guy I felt like comparing him to at the moment is Keith Davis.
there are times i must bow to the irrefutable logic such as this. : )
is covering wr's a stong suit of roys? nope. no one i know of ever said it was. but "liability"? no more than 1/2 the CB's we have come through here in the last decade.
like i said - i'm waiting for a stat for stat comparision to say he sucks, not some people bashing roy to proclaim they're not a homer.
I don't think it is blind bashing. He is what he is. He's popular and a celebrity because of his big hits PERIOD, not his "consistant" play because it doesnt exist. Have you ever seen him in person? I was at the Saints game and I'm convinced he needs to go to an eye doctor. He gets such a late break on every pass, it's almost like he doesnt see it. I'm not blind bashing but Williams is blind pursuing. lol
when Roy is used like a FS instead of a SS,that becomes a liability.if you dont agree with me thats fine.if you need proof,look at the replay from Sundays game.Roy was playing FS,not SS,for the second half.
