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

Archuleta was given the largest contract in NFL history for a safety not to just play on running downs.

I think he is a poor fit for the system right now; not sure if it is the system itself, his learning curve, or what factors exactly. Probably he could be a good player if used in a way to bring out his abilities.

It was sad that Ryan Clark was let go because when he left, Taylor lost a needed mentor and friend, and so it was somewhat like losing Taylor too. At least Taylor's maturity as a player is being accelerated probably. And now that we have Troy Vincent, we have a still talented player with sterling leadership. So, things are on the upswing again.

"We blitzed several times and he was close to getting there. And we'll continue to do that. He's like that hybrid safety, hybrid linebacker and we're going to get him around the line of scrimmage as much as we can."

Seriously, I feel it too. Why do people want Brunell to step up in the pocket, plant his feet and throw instead of rolling out? Because he's white. Y'all aren't ready for a white QB who can roll out and throw on the fly....blah blah blah

Thanks Saden, I needed a good laugh

trade him for Ryan Clark. AA is bust 100%.
Ryan Clark is pretty much a hard hitting cover Safety. And that's pretty much ya want unless your Dline sux. My thought is that Williams realized our Dline would underachieve so AA could supplement rush D. Turns out he gets beat by TE's. Cut him asap.


Please lemme see the fold with Duckett.

I just hope that if he's gonna blitz, that he works on disguising it more. Plus he usually doesn't time the snap well.
Let's hope he forces a fumble or something that we can give him props for!

I hate Archuleta desperately. He reminds me of Matt Stevens.

Am I the only one that wanted to see more of Archulleta today? I still cant believe that even Fox is better than him. When they were running down our throats, I wanted to see him in there.

I actually wanted to see more of him. Arch has definately been victimized, but I think he's been getting a boatload of crap because our defense is so bad (with or without him). I think he is the focal point of all anger re: overpaying high-profile free agents.
