Sometimes he does well when matched up against TE's, but that was a pathetic game from him, he got beat 4 times on long passes, 3 for TD's, I still believe he is a good SS especially against the run, but he needs to step his game up, we cant have any weak links anymore, he needs to put in some serious work or goodbye harper, and bring back chip vaughn

He had many excellent games this year so I can't get too upset about one bad game. I'm sure he'll work on his pass coverage this coming season - it is just mental and tactical I think he has the talent.

Harper is not the problem. Our lack of a pass rush is a problem. Our inability to tackle as a unit is a problem. Injuries were a problem that exposed weaknesses of undividuals. Jenkins and Harper is a very solid safety combination.

Chip Vaughn is a good special teams player but don't think he would be an acceptable option as a starter. Yeah our Dline makes our secondary have to cover their receivers too long I believe is the real problem. If Hasselback didn't misfire that pump fake he pulled on Pat Robinson(which I have never seen anyone bite on a pump fake that hard) the score would have been worse.

Sharper thinking he can outsmart quarterbacks and know what they are thinking bit us. We aren't playing Mark Sanchez. Hasselbeck is a vet.

But then he holds Gonzales to 2 catches for 13 yards. I don't & can't understand his consistency...

His problem was he didn't stay disciplined. He tried to guess where the ball was going and gave up his man. The TE Carlson had 1 TD all year and catches 2 in the playoff game. I'm sure after he watches the tape over and over of Carlson falling to the ground and then getting up to walk in the endzone with a TD pass he will not free lance his coverage again.

Harper has always been a liability when it comes to pass coverage. He has gotten better each year and needs to continue to work hard on his coverage skills. I believe that he is still a liability with large tight ends but he continues to get better. He's a very good run stopper and if we had a better Dline he would be a Pro bowler every year.

yeah he is great against the run or against slower tight ends(like gonzales) but he is a liability in coverage.
