Was Harper Benched ??

From Sean Payton:
Quote:
Did you use Kevin Kaesviharn more on defense yesterday?

“He played at safety and then you saw him in some heavy sets where it looked like he was playing corner, but he was really a support player. He played more. He came in and rotated in for Roman Harper and played 40-some snaps. He did a decent job.”

Was that planned going into the game?

“No, it was a decision I made. We missed a coverage on Galloway’s big completion and we gave up a big touchdown run in a run-support that the safety was there in a position to make the play and he didn’t, so that was my decision of moving Kevin in
I was wondering why he was in there during the final series.

clutch time plays or the lack of.
I think we are going to evaluate a lot of players in the remaining games. Heck we may even see some draft picks get some real playing for a change.

I just don't understand why he's so quick to take Harper (one of our better DB's) out of the game, but he'll let Jason David and Josh Bullocks blow coverages all game long. And he mentions Harper missing tackles being part of the reason, but Simoneau is our starting MLB?? Dude always misses tackles. I just don't really get it.

I guess harper isn't as good as I thought, or at least as smart. Apparently he is blowing some coverages and missing tackles. We don't really know the coverages and sometimes it looks as though David is completely out of place, but maybe they aren't ALL his fault. Still think David sucks though...
