Feelings on Adam Archuleta can he cover his own shadow?

Its pitiful, this guy just can't cover, beginning the season i thought he'd add a more power hitting, better secondary obviously not. Just leave his ass on the bench. He sugar coated that when he got beat deep and almost lost us the game, however big TROY V the best pickup off the street saved it for us.

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

arch sucks.. If he hasn't developed any coverage skills thus far in his career he should not be playing regularly... but Williams is pretty much putting him in to blitz or play run, from what I gathered in his post game presser.

I was just thinking about making a thread about this guy. I mean he just seems completely out of it. He can't be this bad can he?

So it's looking like not only was this guy not an upgrade, he can't even play. That sucks

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

I agree. Adam Archuleta is absolutely terrible. He was about 5 yards behind the Dallas TE that made the catch to set up the final Vanderjack field goal attempt. Even though the kick was eventually blocked (ironically by Troy Vincent) the end result could have been ugly.

Unfortuantely, I don't feel they'll bench him because they don't want to admit he is a total bust. So we're going to suffer with more big burns. Here's to a 6-10 season. Thanks Arch.

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

What kills me is how much we paid him and that he's not exactly a young buck. Moreover, everyone around the league knew that Arch wasn't a cover corner. This is the one FA acquisition that I would unquestionably veto.

If Vincent can stay healthy then hopefully we'll have learned that AA does not belong in obvious passing situations. The guy can blitz so he can be still used for that.

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

I would honestly give up a 3rd rounder to let us release Archuleta with no cap hit. Anyone know how much money we'd be out if we cut him? I believe we'd take about a $5+ million cap hit by releasing him (signing bonus acceleration - 2007 salary), but that's a rough guess.

Let Archuleta bulk up by 10-15 pounds this offseason. Move him to weakside linebacker--he can back up McIntosh next year when Holdman is let go.

No, no and no....we're not bulking up Arch to play him at linebacker. Too late for that shit. And we're not going to pay his ass $30 million to a be situational blitzer.

He needs to be traded or released in the most cap friendly way possible.

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

Arch actually didn't play most of the second half. Vincent was in on probably 80% of the plays. After the game on the Comcast postgame show they asked GW why Arch was on the bench for most of the second hald and GW was very diplomatic, stating that it was based on what "packages" were in for the play etc., but you could tell that he was obviously pissed about the last pass play.

If I were a betting man, I think you'll see Vincent in place of Arch on all passing downs, maybe more. GW was VERY high on Vincent after the game saying that Vincent has that "veteran instinct" and how TV was picking out stuff from Dallas's playbook etc.

Traded? Only one team in the league would trade for him--and he's already on the Skins. As for releasing him--not sure of the cap implications but I would think that would be difficult after one year.

He's better at the line of scrimmage anyway so might as well move him. I believe he was a linebacker in college also. And finally, Dale Lindsey could make him cry...
