Iffy Finds a New Home....maybe

From the Detroit Free Press:

Quote:
Defensive back Ifeanyi Ohalete, waived by the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, has been claimed by the Lions, president Matt Millen said. They won't know until this afternoon if they will get him.

its latte according to the pathers announcers.

The safety position is something that to many teams are just having their bad or slow corners play, and figure anyone can do it. I think the biggest thing a safety needs is intelligence. Look at Rod Woodson, a great cornerback that lost a step becuase of an injury then moved to saftey. Not as fast as he used to be but hes so smart out there hes always where the play is. The teams taht dont have great safeties get burnt a lot. Sean Taylor brings so much to the table for us becuase he never should have been a safety. Hes as big as a linebacker, as fast as a corner back, moves like a running back(his former position) and has so much on the field smarts. The fact that he got put at safety in miami turned him into such a dominate player. Teams have to gameplan against us now becuase of him, they have to tell their qb not to make throws when getting hit that beucase hes bigger than a receiver and will take the ball from them, receivers are going to drop balls over the middle when he comes flying at them to hit them. On deep routes now, when he double teams a guy, like TO lets say, Springs will try to run with him step by step, but Taylor will just watch the ball, jump in front of both of them and pick it off.

Look at champs stats from last year, then look at Taylors stats from what, six drives? Taylor alreayd has two pick, a touchdown, a forced fumble. Hell, our defense last year would take weeks to put those kinda stats up.

Didn't think he'd be without a team very long.

If this had been a year ago, I would've said poor Iffy but I think Dennis Green has got that program moving in the right direction.

Bowen and Lott have been starting. Lott will be moved down to second string.

Bowen is pretty much entrenched at his safety spot

I was one of the guys really banging the drum for Matt Bowen when he came in here but I think Iffy is the better player and the only reason Bowen is still here is cos we gave him a ridiculous contract for an unproven (1 play-off game aside) player.

Iffy didn't do anything this preseason to justify a roster spot much less a starting job.

He didn't dispute the fact that he and the coaches didn't see eye to eye.

I don't understand why people have such a soft spot for this guy, he really isn't anything special. Neither is Bowen, don't get me wrong I'd like to see him out the door too if he doesn't step up.

Im not sure why so many people have a soft spot for him, but youre right, they definitly do. Mabye its his name, mabye its becuae he was a no name (no pun intended) that ended up starting, ala stephen davis.

Last year we were comparing his play to bowens. And both look decent up next to each other. Taylor is just making them both like like crap and puts a whole different light on their play.
