Horton Brings Toughness And Energy To Our Defense That In My Opinion Balance Out The Experience Factor With Dougerty

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

The bottom line is Horton just makes more plays than Doughty. I just don't feel comfortable with Doughty at SS.

Well good, let's hope Doughty blows out his knee so Horton can play, or maybe he can singlehandedly causes our team to lose a game so he can be benched.

Nah, just saying to keep you people happy. I mean if the coaches are not willing to take him out as you all want, then maybe fate can intervene on your behalf. I mean he's a terrible player, no?

Maybe not terrible, but he did get burned right down the middle of the field for a 60+ yard touchdown today. I'm afraid to see what happens next week when he's covering the deep middle against T.O.

Well according to ESPN:
"The Cardinals tied the score again on the game's first offensive play of more than 20 yards. Fitzgerald, who last week had a 75-yard touchdown reception, sped past Reed Doughty and LaRon Landry on a post route for a 62-yard scoring pass."

But what do they know? It's all Doughty.

He's not a future HOF who will never get beat (especially by one of the best wr's in the league). But how about his tackles all over the field, his half a forced fumble (I know, ff are only awarded to one player and Rocky will probably get the stat) plus the fact that the safety tandem limited the high powered Cards to only 1 play over 19 yards. Neither Horton nor Doughty will be in the Pro Bowl anytime in the next decade but both can be exceptional role players on a really good defense.

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

yeah, I thought Doughty had a decent game today. I was pissed about the long td to Fitz but he was pretty sure on his tackling, with a couple of key third down stops.

Watch the play again. Doughty was the deep safety on that particular pass. He is a liability in coverage and doesn't have the natural ability that Landry has, to make up for his lack of coverage skills.

You are correct in regards to Doughty, but what have you seen from Horton in his first three games that makes you so sure he is not a potential pro bowler? All I've seen is Horton putting himself in position to make plays, and a natural ability to be around the ball, often.

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

Finally someone agress with me on Doughty (Southpaw) The guy is weak in pass coverage. The tackles are nice but if Horton were starting he would do the same thing maybe more. Ruhskins saw "your boy" Doughty didn't play a snap after he got burned by Fitz. I think its telling me Horton might start next week.

Re: Goodbye Doughty, Hello Horton!

I just want to know why in the hell Doughty was in coverage against Fitzgerrald in the first place. I know that they reported that Landry was there too, but it looked like all Doughty to me.

I would have thought that they would play Fitzgerrald with man coverage and a Safety over top. This was not the case on that play because they beat a cover 3. Thats 2 weeks in a row where the cover 3 worked against us.
