Aren't we looking at it wrong, we just got a gift.

After I damn near pitched a bottle at my TV yesterday I took a nap, Funny how naps sometimes give you great clarity.... I woke up thinking, I just heard the greatest news of all time yesterday...... Greg Williams was reinstated!!!!! Before you start hurling black and gold objects in my general vacinity with the intent to harm let me quickly tell you I lothe this snitch with every fiber of my being, but he had a great affinity for one Roman Harper and the Titans need safety help!!!!!

UHHHHHH!!!! Can you say Trojan Horse trade..... A 3rd and a 6th for someone who is not gonna get any better in the 3-4 than he was in Spags d. Plus 3-4 asks way more of safeties than does any other d. This could be the trade we make that gets us out of the whole!!!!!

While I'd be in favor of a trade, Harper is a much better fit for the 3-4 coaches I've seen mentioned for the job. Most 3-4's run a traditional SS/FS set up which Harper is better suited for.

Harper is a good player. Maybe we're overpaying him, but he doesn't suck. Poor Roman. He even gets blamed for global warming...

Roman Harper IS a good solid player.
He just need 9-10 other solid players around him for his talent to show...

The only thing solid about Harper is his head and stone hands. He does hit well when he gets there but no way is he a playmaker and lacks anticipation no nose for the football. I want to see someone else back there that has cover skills some longevity and an upside.

Re: Aren't we looking at it wrong, we just got a gift.

stone hands harper is only complaint about him, pass coverage skills are well less than stellar.

In the box the dude is a beast. shame he was not playing 20 years ago, he would be a hall of fame SS candidate.

But in today's NFL SS is nothing more than FS that is a very good tackler.

you have to think that our DBs also wouldn't have looked so atrocious if we had any sort of a pass rush this season

Harper's best playing days were at the University of Alabama.
