& at that point it would not have been LOL. I would have had a completely different set of emotions if we lost.

Harper is one of our best tacklers, but one of our worst cover guys.
That's why he plays strong safety, and not free safety.
Harper does his thing EVERY week and takes flack because he can't stay with a good TE or a back out of the backfield.
It's just not his strength. He doesn't have much of a trun-and-go, or a good 0-60, but he brings the wood, EVERY week.
We, and GW, just have to find a way to cover his weaknesses. The same way we cover all the other weaknesses.
Harper should be probowl, AGAIN! We have no substitute for his contributions to our success.

Here's a little football info for you broman. The strong safety is responsible for covering tight ends and running backs. Especially in our system the FS is mainly responsible for just covering a deep zone.

Harper is actually one of our better cover guys. The proof is in his job description. He's not a corner for a reason but he's easily the best defender we have based on his consistency.

Ur letting a few plays here and there cloud Ur memory of his otherwise tremendous career and skillset.

I can't believe how many pol are actually still down on this guy for what he and gw said were only 2 missed plays in Seattle last year. You can say he can't cover but he's 100% better than any safety we've had over the past 10 years
