When Bigby gets back, yeah, I'd agree. There'll be less big plays against us.

But with Al... I hate to say it--but I almost don't miss him.

Which begs the question. Would you rather have someone who's a ballhawk, or would you rather have one side of the field totally shut down?


I'm not sure yet how Williams compares to Harris, because Williams hasn't gone up against any good receivers or QB's yet. But so far so good.

That is an easy one.. shutdown.. it allows you so much more flexiblity in your defense... whether it is rolling coverage over or shading up in run support.. it gives you so many options in coverage if you wanted it, it isn't even funny.

Even a shutdown gets burned once in a while.. but for a DC.. give me those dice and I will roll with them everytime.

Maybe the shot glass got in the way a couple of times.. :lol:

No accusing at all.. just an opinion of reading numerous posts around the cybersphere.

Show me a low-light reel and I will show you a high-light reel twice as long.

Collins has been money this year. He's made like 4 TD saving tackles this season.

Tramon has made two himself.

These speed guys are money.

Easy one for me as well. I would rather have a guy that can shut down the other teams best WR.

And I think the coaches would pick the person that makes the least mistakes. If that the same they would go with the person that makes bigger plays.

But usually the shut down guy makes less mistakes because their not gambling as much.

That being said as much as I like Harris, is he a shut down guy?

I say yes, but he may not be able to shut down the physical #1 guys anymore or the tall smart ones.

Plexico (or how ever you spell the Giants #1 WR name) was beating Harris because he had longer arms and knew how to use them to get Harris far enough away to not be able to jam him and because he's faster than Harris.

Also Harris has been beaten by WR that could handle his physicalness because they were ever physical as well. And Harris looked like he was having trouble with the speed of the Vikings WR this year.

I'm just saying Harris isn't at his prime anymore, and while still a good CB, not what he used to be. I think Harris would do better on most but their may be some WRs that Williams would do better on than Harris.

And Harris would be coming back from an injury and would have to get back into football shape, so he might put at nickel after he gets healthy.

Slot receivers are usually speed kings though, and that's not exactly going to work in Harris' favor.

I mean, look at Miles Austin in Dallas.

Williams has stepped up very well, the worst part about having him start isnt that he is a liability, infact he's playing very well, but that it bumps everyone else up. We really do not have a solid, reliable nickleback. But it does look like we will have a solid starter for the future in Williams. Also, chuck wood is a bad ass.

If your talking about what I said with Harris being the nickel a little....

The Nickel guy usually doesn't cover the slot. The Nickel guy usually covers one of the out side guys, because that lets them use the side lines for help which the guy covering the slot can't do.

Also if you remember Harris did a pretty good job at shutting down Patrick Crayton (0 catches for the Packer game)

Also last year if we would bring in the nickel Woodson always covered the slot.

This year it has always been Woodson or Williams. The Packers don't Harris or their younger guys their.

Something interesting here, GB has 3 of the top 10 leaders in interceptions so far this year, Charles Woodson tied for #1 with 4, and Collins and Williams tied for #4 with 3.

Tramon is good. He's decent in coverage, makes some big plays, and if you throw underneath, he WILL tackle you.

Unlike collins and most everyone else who tries to hit instead of tackle...


Go Tramon!!!!!!!!


I love a player who knows how to tackle. I just hate it when the defender plays bumper cars. I do not care if he knocks the offensive player down every single time. It is poor technique. Get your arms around the offensive player and tackle him please. Don't they teach that in Pee Wee football these days? In the old days you would run laps till you dropped if you didn't tackle correctly. I can't imagine someone playing for Bear Bryant or Woody Hayes and hitting the guy with his shoulder.

That certainly was Collins' M.O. going into this year, but so far this season he's been one of the defenses standout performers. He's always had good closing speed; it's just his tackling and hands needed to improve. Both have, and it's showed in his performance and on the stat sheet.

Oh, and on Tramon -- he's looked very good so far. Makes me think we'll have ourselves a pretty darn good corner post Woodson/Harris. The fact that he's doing well RIGHT NOW makes it all the better. Cornerback has certainly been a position of concern -- the "fear of the unknown" type.

This is a great point. So far so good, but next week Peyton Manning will test this secondary more than it's ever been tested in my opinion. A lot of hatred for Manning on this forum, but he is good and his football smarts is what makes him hard to defend. He got the best of Baltimore this week and I'll be surprised if he doesn't the Packers next week.

I dont think we lose anything with Williams in there, than when we have Harris. Sure Harris is solid. But in all honesty I do not think he is as good as people make him out to be. No INT's last year...He got torched in the playoffs. But sure!! I will take Harris back any day now, leadership, and experience are qualities that you cant get, except with a guy like him. But for the time being..Im satisfied with the way Williams has played!

Harris had two picks last year. He's never been a big INT guy for us, though.

Tramon has been great, but Harris is still much better. Hopefully when Harris gets back we have Atari back too so we can go to a lot of nickel sets but still be able to stop the run because Atari is an animal.

WTF?

Collins has been nothing but spectacular this season. This is even coming from someone who was anti-Collins last year. Have you and I been watching the same games?

Al Harris doesnt get interceptions because no one ever throws to his side.. until NY did it.

They throw it to his side, he breaks up a lot of plays. How does he do that if they dont throw to his side?
