Apparently many don't know the difference.

As an old school SS Harper is excellent. Stone hands harper is my label for him since year one. As long as he defends the pass all is good. INT's are not his forte.

NFL rules changes have almost put players like Harper out of a job. Pansy ball is killing their job market. Today's SS is more of a tweener FS/CB/LB. that's why they are hard to find. I believe many of the old time pro bowl SS could not survive in today's nfl due to the rule changes.

But every year i wish the same for harper, a jug machine for christmas

No, its unrealistic to assume a SS should cover like a CB.

Harper is a SS and covers exactly like one.

I like the fire and intensity, now if we could just get back to some good old-fashioned tackling I'd be happy.

Catching practice would also help
