Re: Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

true, but he knows the bears' scheme better than GW's, since it's the only one he's ever used in the NFL. they weren't offering nearly what we were though, so maybe he would have only been a part timer there, or maybe he would have just been their mistake instead of ours...

Re: Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

we do crack on AA alot, but none of our D has been playing well, and that may have something to do with his shortcomings. I've seen #22 get burned, #21 get burned, #25 looks like he just got back from the surface of the sun he gets torched so much, so it may just be that our D sucks right now, and maybe he'll improve.


I would like to see him blowing up people more, but ST hasn't made jacked up himself lately... I wonder why that is? He's usually a regular..

AA leads the team in solo tackles with 42
the next in line is ST with 34

WHY DO THE SAFETIES HAVE TO MAKE ALL THE TACKLES
IF AA DIDN'T HAVE TO MAKE ALL THE TACKLES ON THE RUN GAME MAYBEE HE COULD COVER SOMEONE!

That's the crazy world of Greg Williams. Corners blitzing, Defensive ends playing zone coverage, Lemar Marshall singled up with the other teams best WR. Every player has to play every position (almost). A.A. is probably used to hanging back on passing downs but now they have him running all over the field. Clark and Pray-Low had no trouble picking it up, though.

No he can't. That's why Troy Vincent started and played majority of the game. Bottom line!

Re: Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

The guy just doesn't fit the williams scheme, too much man coverage for arch, doesn't seem like it's gonna work out. If he can't keep up with a tight end, how is he gonna keep up with reggie brown?????

Re: Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

GW knows AA can't cover and that's evident by him not playing much in the 2nd half. We all know that if someone can't play no matter what he is getting paid that someone will not see the field much (i.e LA). So i trust GW on this one.

And its really not AA's fault. You're gonna turn down 30mill, or whatever it was? Let the front office take the blame for this.

Re: Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

I think the plan all along was to have Prioleau play primarily in passing situations and AA would be used more in running situations where he could do what he does well, which is play close to the line of scrimmage.

Re: Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

I have to believe that Archulleta problem is the system and not his ability. Something is not right with how they are playing him. He is not slow, he has good speed for a saftey. I was at the game and I tried to watch him as best I could and what I thought was that he was playing to close to the line. It was fine if he was blitzing, but going into coverage from there just does not work for him. I watched the same thing happen to Vincent yesturday, on th TO dropp. I also saw it happen to Reed Doughty on several ocassions. I know he is a rookie, but my point is this, in all my years of watching football I have never seen saftey get beat as much as ours have. That includes Taylor.

B-Mitch on 980 just said that whoever is responsible for bringing AA to DC should lose their job.

He (AA) needs to just stay on the sideline next to GW during games.

Fully agree.

B-Mitch is the worst idiot commentator I have ever heard. I cant stand him and he does not know anything. Archulletta can not be as bad as he has looked in Washington. He would never have made it this far. Like I said, in all my years of watching football, I have never seen safeties getting burned like they have been in Washington.

You know what any who thinks B-Mitch knows anything, is not worth my time.

Brian Mitchell played more Pro games than you or I did. He has insight that most of us can't have.

Isn't there a Bears forum you could hang out in? You are still a Bears fan, right? You off their bandwagon now they've lost a game?
