Harper on the decline?
I recall a few plays during the GB game that reminded me of the Seattle game. I sure hope it's not a trend, but it's starting to look like Harper's better days are behind him. The jury is still out of course. Might it be time to consider Sharper or another safety before there are other injuries on other teams?

Cant cover period...good against the run..thats it

I remember him covering Dallas Clark in the super bowl doing okay

I remember him covering Visante Shiancoe in the opening game of 2010 and shutting him down, after that point hes gone downhill.

i like that he can hit and he is a great blitzer but the whole secondary was a glaring weakness for us, it needs to be fixed. Robinson looked like an absolute goat out there, rodgers just couldnt wait to throw to his side for big play after big play.

I think Harper drives to these games in A clown Car. The kind you open the door and 30 clowns come running out, going in circles not knowing where they are going... Cause this guy plays like that on the field... If every play was a run play then this guy would be a pro bowler every year.. But dam man he can't cover in pass defense..

Sharper or Harper... that is the question?

He actually had good coverage on some of those plays he got "beat" on. Rodgers just threw the ball to the perfect spot.

Papz found a great stat once that showed Harper was one of the best DB's in the league at allowing the least amount of yards to TE's.

I think too many people think SS's should be able to cover as well as CB's.


"You have a two year pro bowl player that is back that is young that is continuing to improve, continuing to get better. A lot was said about his last game and its unfortunate you guys don't know much about ball.

All you guys that criticized him for two plays in that last're dead wrong. Because he played pretty well except for two plays. He played poorly on two plays but I could say that about 99% of them out there.

OK? I'm really happy that Roman Harper is back . WE NEED HIM HERE. I'll be a better coach and we will be a better team because Roman Harper is back here."-Gregg Williams

Just cover a TE that's all we ask ..and turn around for christ sake..Believe me i want him to succeed with all the money we have invested in him..:bng:

I also thought he actually had good coverage on most plays, just has to get his head turned around. It's a guessing game, strong safety isn't the easiest position to play I'm sure.

WIll SMith comes back & the D line gets more pressure it will help out the DBs.

Football 101 - put pressure on the QB (Oh & turnovers, that would be nice!!)
