Re: Shawn Springs

Has Rodgers really stepped it up? Had to listen to the game on the radio until they the last three minutes.

Re: Shawn Springs

No doubt we need help in the secondary. Rogers has to step up his play, and we have to keep getting a better pass rush on. If Carter and Co. can put some pressure on the QB, that will certainly help our secondary until Springs is back.

Re: Shawn Springs

Rogers improves every game but gave his man too deep a cushion in the Jags game. He's fast but not THAT fast.

Don't be a Homer, Hess It's Deangelo. Springs is not a superhuman but he is better than the alternative. Although Wright and Rumph look better, I don't know which I'd choose, they've both made decent plays, but probably the guy from the U.

From Pro Football Prospectus 2006, "Shawn Springs was the top cornerback in the league according to our game charting numbers,"

Also from the same blurb: "expect the Redskins to have problems on third downs with slot receivers catching the ball right at the first down marker."

These guys really know what they are talking about.

Re: Shawn Springs

I think Champ is still the best shut down corner in the league....but, um it's definitely not Mr. Springs.

Re: Shawn Springs

Does anyone remember what games Springs missed last year? I ask because I am lazy and don't want to check. At the time, I remember thinking that Springs was the keystone of the whole thing and that without his skills the schemes sort of fell apart. Just wondering.

Quite possibly the most idiotic post that I have ever seen.

Cut him? Why, because our coaches rushed him back on the practice field?

Springs missed one game v. Kansas City last year. I don't think he played against Tampa, but possibly suited up.

Re: Shawn Springs

I think the upside to having Rumph and Wright working in the system early is that when and if Springs comes back, we'll have two good nickel DB to compete during our playoff run.
