Average tight ends on him are a mismatch and I wouldn't sleep a wink if someone told me he had to cover Witten for an entire game. He has no shot against wide receivers either.

He definitely is worth a roster spot but I haven't seen anything from him to think he is going to fix our secondary problems.
how do you put moore ahead of horton??

I like how Moore hits and I thought he made a great interception against NO before he coughed it up (I think he was down but it doesn't matter at this point....). Moore isn't coming off IR either.

Even if Horton is better than Moore, which is possible, my main point is that I do not envision Horton coming back and making us forget about our FS issues. It is much more likely that Landry steps up and plays the position at a high level.

you and i want the same thing. i really think the sky is the limit for landry he just needs someone to show him the way and blache and gray were doing the opposite, hopefully he will shine through this year otherwise the only thread worth talking about dirty laundry willl be the landry is a bust thread

It's a possibility. He's get decent enough size and physicality. I agree that having the plays in front of him may help his ball tracking. Offseason is a good time to experiment with it. The key question is whether he's willing to try the move.

Re: How about moving Rogers to free safety?

You know that Landry is bad at run support (see runs by Steven Jackson and Michael Turner) and couldn't chase down Jason Witten, which are two things SS should at least be competent in? His athleticism is not any sort of actual insurance that makes him deserving a starting spot over Horton or Doughty.

Re: How about moving Rogers to free safety?

Is Sharper a FS or SS? He'll be an UFA this offseason. Although I'm sure he wont come cheap and/or the Saints may try to keep him.

Do you remember what Jackson did to ST in 2006? Jackson is one of the best runningbacks in football and put up good numbers as the ONLY threat on the team.

Landry is faster than Witten.

Landry also had several disgusting plays against Dallas in Dallas. There is always a play here or there to use as evidence against a play but Landry is on another planet compared to those two guys. It isn't even close.

Exactly, you can't judge a player on a few plays.

By 40 times, yes.

But on that play, he got beat and stayed beat.

If Gradkowski stayed in, there was a good chance Landry would have made the wrong end of the highlight reel, but fat JaMarcus is so bad that he was spared.
