Personally, I don't really mind the penalty. It tells upcoming opponents that we may be without 21, but that doesn't mean its safe to go over the middle just yet.

It's worth mentioning that I thought Reed Doughty seemed to play well, too.

He's been doing it ALL year. He even won a game for us with a huge hit.

He'll make a fine replacement for Taylor once he starts catching balls, but we'll probably never have a tandem like we had with BOTH of them back there. We were downright scary at the safety position.

This guy is a force. BUT......we need to get him in on some of the WR practices so maybe he can catch one of the two INT's they tried to give him last night.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

I was there and I agree with all of you. Landry was playing like a man possessed. I told my buddy I was there with. And you know what SMOOT, Springs, and the secondary as a whole played lights out. I was really impressed though by Smoot, Springs, and Landry.

Great game as a unit guys. HAIL!!

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

This will piss people off, because it pissed me off, but I'm sitting here listening to NFL Radio with Bob Papa and Shannon Sharpe. Papa mentioned the Landry hit and asked why he wasn't ejected from the game given the league's memo a few weeks back talking about flagrant fouls resulting in ejections (I can't remember if that was specific to QBs or not). He also mentioned the possibility of a game suspension since this hit was Landry's third offense by this point (AZ, NYJ, CHI).

Just putting it out there. I know everyone is psyched about the hit (maybe you wouldn't be if it resulted in a Bear's score, or if it was Cooley that had gotten similarly decked). Anyone think a game suspension might be a possibility? I doubt the league would come down on the Skins like that at this time, but honestly Landry needs to be a bit smarter. My take on it was that if Muhammad did have the ball he needed to try to separate him from it, and it happened pretty fast in real time. It was pretty late, though.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

I don't think he'll get suspended, but he'll get another fine for sure. But you know what, he's putting that "I dare you" reputation out there from the jump. It's just a matter of time before Landry starts being considered a dirty player.

Fine or not, ultimately it will pay off.

When he got flagged for that hit, which was ticky tack IMO, I actually turned to my buddy and commented how prior to that Sean Taylor was the only player I ever remember getting flagged for "hitting a defenseless receiver."
Taylor will never EVER be replaced but it'd be nice to think Landry can come close to being that good one of these days.
Sorry the flag was not "ticky tack" it was clearly a lat hit. Did you guys freeze out there last night? I was very surprised at the size of the crowed.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

The hit will probably cost Landry some $$, but I didn't see too many passes over the middle after that so he made his point. Landry looked fluid and like GW said before, once he recognizes something he flies to the ball and makes plays. He can definitely bring the lumber.

The secondary played awesome last night, even on the TD that Springs gave up it took a perfect pass and a great catch to beat him, couldn't ask for much more from Springs.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

We will probably never know how the murder of #21 has affected LL? They must have been pretty close as they trained (at least) many hours together.
That having been said, life changing events come in many forms. LL is already a good player on his way to potential greatness. That could accelerate, depending how he uses the passing of his brother safety, ST! He could not have a better model.

Laron has a ways to go but he is starting to show flashes. He is not in the realm of the impact player Sean is yet. He is a heck of an athlete, though remember in most of our opinions Sean was going to be a legend perhaps the best ever to play the game in his position. Good job so far for Laron, he is a rookie yet.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

Yes definitely.. I smiled and told my friend who is a HUGE fan of Bears, "I like that boy".. Even though it cost us a Bears td and LaRon probably will get a fine for it.. But it is definitely worth it, it will show WRs that we still have a guy who can lay a heavy lumber..

BUT I do not want LaRon to replace Sean, nobody can replace Sean.. Not even LaRon.. I want LaRon to be himself - represent #30..

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

I absolutely loved the hit last night, but I wish he could've caught those two interceptions. Speaking of the hit does anyone have a video of it?

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

I was wrong earlier when someone asked if he'd move to free safety. Obviously GW trusts him back there & thinks his speed is needed.

He's really gonna have to step up & so far he has. It's so depressing to think about what could've been w/Landry & ST next year & after.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

Collinsworth said that Laron was at FS. If so, it wouldn't surprise me if we saw him make more plays. He was definitely bringing the wood last night. I too was kind of happy to see Laron put the hit on MM, it reminded me of Taylor.

Landry a lot of people doubt him went we choose him I think everyone is happy as hell now. Just think about it what a 1-2 punch he & ST really would have been.
