Re: The official cut Torrence thread

Just a thought does anyone think that Matteral Richardson would be and upgrade over Torrence. If Tryon can break the roster he should easily be able to as well. I thought he was our third best corner in the preseason and was upset that Tryon got a spot only because he was definitely a draft pick because he was outperformed by Richardson.

This thread is freakin stupid as hell. Let me ask you something. Is it impossible for you to give credit to Avery making a good play on the ball? Also Blache said someone missed the blitz call which gave Bulger extra time to throw the ball down field. Or what about Taylor or Carter not getting any pressure in that situation? You just can't go around cutting people cause they screw up. Sometimes the other guy just makes a better play on the ball. The Rams players get paid too. But it shouldn't even have come down to that. We beat ourselves on offense by turning the ball over.

Looked to me (also) that Landry got there just a step or two late, otherwise this would have been a sure INT. Torrence was def in perfect position and in the bigger picture he has improved vastly over last year IMO. He has learned how to cover (Lord knows he has the speed for it), now we'll see if he can take his skills to the next level and play the INTs.

That play was a bust because we got no pressure Bulger - give half the QBs in this league that much time and they're going to complete a pass. We need Torrence to step up his game but we also need the DL to get in there.

Re: The official cut Torrence thread

Watching it live, I really thought Avery pushed off, but the replay shows that he just adjusted quicker, giving the illusion of pushing off.

At no point during the play was Torrence further than an arms length from Avery.

If anything, Springs should have been on the more explosive deep threat and Torrence should have been on Kennison. Again, I'm not sure that changes anything.

Re: The official cut Torrence thread

Avery made a nice play more than Torrence made a bad one.

It's impressive to see rookie wide receivers making positive plays to help their team win...

Re: The official cut Torrence thread

This thread belongs on extremeskins, where people similarly are calling for Rogers, Campbell, Kendall and Cooley to be cut.

Matteral Richardson had some good moments in preseason but also some very bad ones. Torrence is by far our best bet for #4 corner, and he keeps improving.

Please... I'm so sick of Smoot. Has he ever tried to tackle someone above the shoelaces?

If I see him dive after someones feet and miss again, I'm going to go crazy.

Did Torrence play much besides special teams on Sunday against the Browns? I didn't hear his name mentioned, and I was too emotionally involved to look for his number.

He batted the ball that Rogers caught at the end of the Zona game that basically gave us the win. Torrence isn't that bad of a nickel back. He shouldn't be starting and on an island with a top WR, but is fine as a dime or nickel back. Last week vs. the rams it was not his fault, but another defender was supposed to be with him. Atleast he was with the Reciver. the other guy wasn't anywhere in site.
