I just finished saying that he was good at the line of scrimmage. But that's not where any DB is supposed to spend the majority of his snaps playing at. That leaves a hole downfield at all times, hoping that he gets to the quarterback. It worked for a year. Then we started getting burned and our pass rush was non existent. That's why Williams was fired, and that's why Harper had to go. I only wish they had found a better option sooner.

Tell that to Kam Chancellor and the Seahawks That's all they play is single high safety with their strong safety in the box... Or how about the Steelers, Polamalo is in the box all the time

Says who? And if that had been the case it was only because he didn't want to be there anymore after the Saints drafted Ingram. That's why they traded him and it would have been the reason if they had released him.

I don't see the seahawks blitzing their safety on every play. Strong safeties tend to play low, but they also drop back and cover tight end and backs. Harper was always after the quarterback.

Plus, as much as I hate the 'Hawks, you do realize that they've had the best secondary in the league the past couple years right? You can do a lot of things when you have that much talent.

Right mitch, polamalo spends all his time in the box and NEVER drops back and gets all the interceptions he's had in his career. That's a great example.

Again; it doesn't matter... Harper is the Panthers problem now, it might be more productive for you to go argue with them about him

It matters when someone like you WANTS to argue with me about it. Why are you arguing if it doesn't matter? You're not a hypocrite are you?

Nope; find it kind of fun to see you getting all worked up about it though
