  1. ET did not play well. He missed several tackles, and gave up two TD’s. His missed tackles were plays any FS should have made. This is his third terrible game. Also, 12 tackles by your FS says your defens sucked. Sorry Homers, ET is a fine player, but far too streaky to be a true All-Pro just yet. Can we please give the ET is the best FS in the NFL talk a rest?!

    Wags also didn’t play well. Still, he has a far higher ceiling than Wright. Wright has already hit his ceiling. I think we need to bench KJ and play Smith–we need his speed. Wags is just rusty.

    I was disgusted with the pass rush. Why no blitzes with Irvin?!

    STTBM,

    It’s good that you cleared that up about ET. All of the analysts that spend hours and hours each week looking at all safety’s plays have been saying that ET is playing better than the others. I guess I started believing them. But, your expert comments have changed my mind. Maybe we should trade him before the other teams figure out he’s not that good?

  3. mquinn73 says:

    STTBM – about Earl Thomas, are you serious? How many plays does he break up, or how many of his teammates’ blown assignments does he cover up, because of his speed, reactions and instincts? ET is just a great ball-player. He makes things happen, he makes everyone else on that defense a better player. All-Pro, no doubt.

    Your comment on Wagner has more validity, but I wouldn’t drop KJ for Smith. We’re giving up 200yds rushing in two consecutive games and you want to start Malcolm Smith?!?! How’s that going to improve matters?

  4. Hawkfan–Which experts are claiming ET is All-Pro?! Care to cite sources?!

    After last nights game–where ET missed tackles and on one fell on his ass looking like a total fool–I can’t see him as the best FS in the NFL. Maybe top 5 if he’s lucky. He misses too many tackles, he gave up two TD’s, and added to his earlier bad games (Hou, etc) now has played badly in three out of nine games this year; Hardly All-Pro.

    He needs to be much more consistent before he’s better than Eric Weddle or Eric Berry.

    Which is not to say he isn’t a fine player–he’s great. He’s just far from the best FS in the NFL this year.

  5. Wright is slow. Smith was playing very well vs the run too, and Wright flat sucks in coverage. Wagner played lousy, he needs to shake off the rust and watch film, his technique was awful. His play is a big part of our failing run D.

  6. MoSeahawk12 says:

    Check NFL net, ESPN. They are all saying ET is having his best season and is the best FS in the league. Yes, he overran several plays yesterday, but has been a huge factor in the amount of turnovers and wins we have this year. His tackling has improved from years past and his picks are up. Outside of Russell Wilson, Earl is the one player we can’t afford to lose if there are to be any serious deep playoff run opportunities.

    The two TD’s were aided by the weak pass rush and the QB scrambling around for extra time making plays, ala Russell Wilson. Our D made a rookie QB look like the second coming of Wilson. Nobody is talking about the invisible man, Bruce Irvin. Did he even make one tackle yesterday? He had a huge game against the Rams and was strangely absent yesterday. I think the Buc’s coaching staff schemed him out to keep him from being a factor.
