I wonder; can Harper cover him or are we going to need a LB on him?

Harper has gotten better with this cover skills. Which clearly is where he has needed improvement. GW will probably give them the underneath and won't let them get any long gains.

Harper really only had 1 bad game last year unfortunately it was the last game of the season. The key to covering Finley will be LB coverage. Hopefully we get enough pass rush to disrupt Rodgers timing.

I don't think Harper is as bad as people talk about him, he has a couple of memorably bad mistakes, but I have always been taught that razzing teammates for embarrassing plays is the best way to make sure they don't happen again, but I've also been taught to respect the elderly and the frail, so I don't know what to do about Harper.

harpers mistakes are always big because he makes mistakes at full speed. biting on a pass route cause he is changing directions to make a tackle on a rb at full speed is unrecoverable

Well said Ron.

A safety playing in the box will get burned over the top because... he's in the box!

Carson Palmer made Polamalu look foolish all game long with play action a few years back.
