Are we set at safety?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I personally hope that Jenkins gets moved to the nickle corner. I for one don't think he's played well since Sharper left. Jenkins is a first round draft pick and should be performing better along with the rest of our ...

He misses his fare share of open field tackles (along with 75% of the other players on our defense). I think in crucial points of the game he becomes a liability on the field.

1:12 J Nelson is covered by ?

1:50 J Finley is covered by ?

2:00 Cobb is covered by ?

2:36 Starks runs over a 'hard hitting safety' for the score, guess who?

5:20 The thing Harper is suppose to do well (sacks) and he needs help from Gallette to bring Rodgers down...

Wanna looks at that Seattle game in the previous playoffs?

This seems like the right thread to post...

Wow, I give up. Your credibility has pretty much zero'd out on this issue and quite frankly makes anything you comment on suspect..

I'm officially done with your biased and uninformed opinions JP.

It appears no amount of facts will sway you from your ignorance, so I'm thru with providing them.

I give up with biased & blind people myself. Harper is probably our best defensive player, but some people have never given up the hate of the man.

P.S.- JP, you should look closely at those videos. Some of them are Harper coming in late because of missed assignments by our FS.

1:20 "Safety Play from New Orleans Saints all day was simply awful"

2:08 "Roman Harper completely out of position"

2:31 "...I'm a veteran and I shouldn't let that happen"

3:40 "...you have to be an athlete..."

Again, you and 70 million other people point this out yet he continues his flawed agenda against Harper.

I can make a "worst of Drew Brees" video and claim he sucks.

Oh well, thats what the ignore feature is for.

And yet he still does.

But its not uncommon. There was a guy here who swore Payton and Brees were over-rated from the moment we hired them. and continued that agend thru 2008. Kinda disappeared after 2009 tho.

On the bright side, its people like that that make the rest of us look really really smart.
