There will never be another Dion but even he would've struggled covering receivers with our raggedy ass front seven. If we had Dion in his prime last year he probably would've had to play zone knowing the great Spags.

I can sympathize with him. Tackling hurts, and corners shouldn't be depended on to do it that often; but he averaged around the amount of tackles a year you want a corner to. Like he always said, find the highlight reel of him missing tackles. And are you saying Dieon was all hype????!!!!!

Hahaha! No way I'm watching a bunch of whiners, clowns n cow pies games to prove a point on the internet. How the hell did he come into this thread anyway? Next we'll be puttin' him and T***w in the same backfield knowing neither one's gonna be the key to our defense.

Did you just say you can sympathize with a football player for not doing his job because it hurts?

Yes, if you are anywhere on defense, tackling is part of your damn job description it's 1/2 of what you do at the least.

What is a CB expected to do when the receiver he is covering catches a pass?

Deon would have been a different player today, there are different rules.

Re: Lewis the Key?

Deion Sanders is a douche

Nowadays teams would just run at him all day because he was too much of a wimp to make a tackle

Deion would dominate whatever time period he played in. You got numerous linebackers and defensive linemen who's sole purpose is to make tackles that don't do it consistently but you think corners are supposed to have it perfected? When a corner is a great tackler he plays safety. He's a better tackler then any corner we've got I bet you that. You can't make any solid case to me about him being overrated. And yeah I can sympathize with pain. My body is messes up from football without going pro. You aren't playing. You're spectating and trying to take credit away from the best players ever.

find the proof. Better yet, tell me why they didn't do it back when he played? It wasn't a passing league as much as it is now. That argument makes no sense.
