Sounds like see ya later to me.


Well, I was trying to be nice. Plus, some backups are better than others. I feel like Richardson will be a huge liability anytime he is on the field and the opponent is throwing the ball. But he is a hitter and can play the run pretty well, so I'd still have to call him a decent backup. But probably not a good backup. There's no reason to believe he can't or won't improve, but he just seems to stiff to me. With a great pass rush, it could work out.

Richardson has been in coverage on pass plays 44 times this preseason and allowed 2 catches for 27 total yards. That added to the fact that most of the time you can't even see the safeties on the broadcast I don't really get where people are saying he has looked bad or terrible in coverage. Also during training camp he seems like the only one whose been able to get any interceptions. It seems most of the criticism is coming from preconceived notions about his ability and not any actual evidence.

Sometimes not calling a safeties name is a good thing. I think there is a culture expecting the defense to get an intercept almost every play or something.

Most of my perceptions are from his time at Vandy. I think he got an interception there once.

To me Richardson and Hyde are sort of opposite in their coverage skills...

Hyde can twist and turn with great stop and start skills and quickness to boot but struggles with pure straight line speed. Like a little supped up car that can handle with the best of them and turn on a dime but doesn't have the huge speed engine.

Richardson on the other hand has the pure straight line speed but he struggles to keep the speed up on turns and start and stopping. Like a drag racer car that's only set up going to go straight and struggles with the curve roads.



Richardson not being able to handle curves nearly as well and his tight hips are always going to hurt him in coverage. But I think he might have more potential as well in different type roles. Such as maybe as a coverage ILB... or maybe a single deep zone FS role... yes I said FS and I know some might think I'm crazy but let me explain.

I think Richardson would struggled with a man to man FS role as I'm sure most of you would as well... but as a single deep Safety in a deep zone roll (which GB hasn't used a lot recently), the FS mainly hang back and wait for the QB to throw it and use their pure speed to get over to the ball or WR and take it out like a missile.... Richardson has the speed and the missile part down already and basically the deep zone FS is like a speed demon LB, which Richardson is.

Of course like I said I haven't seen Capers use much of it lately... as they prefer two Safeties normal depth Safeties... but the Packers have done the single deep Safety role in the past with the Packers.


It was a 2-4 nickel defense... where both OLBers moved up to the DL and Nick Collins moved up to the ILBers making it look like a 4-3 looking set up with 3 CBs and one deep Safety. I think Richardson might be able to play the deep Safety or the Safety that lined up with the LB there.

But again Capers doesn't use the single deep zone FS role a lot... so that's probably off the table from simple not using it enough.

You mean Richardsons and Hydes right.Big Grin

I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

Seems like the Safeties coach is on board, are you?

Darren Perry wrote:
Sean's been consistent and has probably had the most splash plays of anyone in the group. He's playing with a lot more confidence than I've ever seen him have, and he's playing with lower pad level. When you're a big safety like that and you stand tall you look a little slow.

I'll be "on board" when I see him consistently making plays in the regular season. Until then, a quote from any coach, player, or general manager means very little to me. Hopefully at minimum they utilize him effectively in certain packages designed to best-utilize his skill-set.
