You had better get the cough checked out. The last time I looked only one of those guys was still on the roster.



The point is,

They were on the roster longer than they should have been.

Burnett I think wont ever be a superstar but I think hell be a quality starter with somebody halfway competent starting next to him and maybe a decent consistent pass rush.

That is the hope.

He has played well in the past, and has struggled in the past with shit suckage across from him.

I know what your point was. My point was I don't necessarily agree. Maybe not with these guys in particular (I don't agree with you on Bush for sure) but with your premise in general. How long do you propose to give a guy a chance to develop? If he is not starter quality within 1 season get rid of him? If you look at every team you will see players that some fans think should have been gone long before they were released. Its a fact of the game.

It took Nick Collins a while to become the Nick Collins we all knew as one of the best safeties in the NFL. His career numbers are somewhat similar to Morgan Burnett's:
http://www.nfl.com/playe...lins/2506390/careerstats
http://www.nfl.com/playe...anburnett/496727/profile

Both had great 2nd seasons, and dropped a bit in their 3rd seasons. Collins' 4th, 5th and 6th seasons were incredible. Burnett's 4th, not so much.

Burnett has suffered from not having a quality Safety opposite him in our D, along with some questionable play from our DL for a couple of seasons. His 4th season should be better, but MD Jennings has really fallen off, his play going south rather than north in his development. I think starting Sean Richardson would certainly help. It can't hurt.

WHAT do you guys see in Sean Richardson?


What's that? Aaron Rodgers mentioned him?? Hmmm

Aaron Rodgers said:
We have a lot of things that are setting up to be really good for a long time. A lot of really good young players with Sam (Shields), Micah Hyde, Casey (Hayward), when Casey comes back (from a hamstring injury) and Morgan Burnett and Sean Richardson, and veteran guys playing well, A.J. (Hawk) had his best season, Clay (Matthews), (Ryan) Pickett, (B.J.) Raji, Johnny Jolly coming back.

Heh I think it was the first day (or yesterday) had Banjo taking more reps with first/second team. Lets Box!

That's to hide our true intent to start Richardson. Secret weapon. ;p

I don't see much in Sean Richardson beyond a decent in the box safety with poor to average at best cover skills. A very good defensive coordinator could probably creatively scheme and make it work, but good quarterbacks would easily expose him, imo. Especially without a top-flight free safety to cover for his mistakes.

I think Burnett, Hyde, and Clinton-Dix are better options in the long run than Richardson. I think Banjo is also better in coverage. Richardson seems like a #4 or #3 type safety, at best. Decent depth, but still not a very good player.

Bulk him up, move him to ILB.

Richardson would be more of an in the box safety like Cam Chancellor.

Only faster.

Well the deal is that he is making plays so that's a great start. The more safeties making plays in camp the better. The pre-season games will sort things out with the safety situation but I am excited to watch this guy improve. He's got the perfect frame to be a strong safety. Let's see what happens. Also props to Banjo. Word from coach is that is improving nicely as well. The Burnett injury is allowing more reps for the younger guys. Blessing in disguise?

Sean Richardson has jumped over Banjo on the depth chart. In fact, no safety has made more plays on the ball than Richardson, who had two interceptions in the first week of camp. ​

That pass deflection on Saturday night sealed it for me and probably the coaches as well, but of course it is all about how they perform in games. At the rate he is going, he may not start, but he has certainly earned more reps behind Burnett or alongside him in packages where there are more than two safeties on the field..

He's sure willing to lay out and hit people and this team needs that badly.
DoddPower  
#38 Posted : Monday, August 4, 2014 2:59:52 PM(UTC)
I certainly hope it works out and he proves me wrong. But I'm very skeptical. He'll be fine against the run, but I think he will be lit up on passing plays. Even if he comes out on the third down, there will still be opportunities on other downs. Of course, all the other Packers safeties get burned too, so I suppose it couldn't be much worse.

With that being said, I have much more faith in the coverage ability of Burnett, Hyde, and even Clinton-Dix, once he learns the defense.

Aren't they all going to learn a new defense this year? I'm really tired of what we've watched the last few years. Way too much talent on that side of the ball to suck so bad.

Richardson is one of those typical guys who has the "looks like Tarzan... plays like Jane" label. Off the charts freakish athleticism but not a very good football player. No instincts... bad angles...but he's the kind of guy we haven't had for a while. One who will just run around and hit things. His ball skills aren't his problem...he just isn't football smart like a Micah Hyde. If you could pair Hyde's football intelligence and Richardson's body...wow.

Hopefully, Sean has learned how to play the game through solid mechanics and fundamentals which he can learn.

As has been said... an in the box guy who might make a play on a ball once in awhile but who'll get burned way more than he'll show up big. He is the epitome of our draft and develop...take a pure athlete who doesn't know jack about football and see if you can get him there. Hopeful, he's come far enough to contribute on D.
