Free Safety

I just went over to the Skins Official site and they're talking about Reed and Kareem being the FS? In my opinion Horton and Kareem would be better at FS. Laron and Reed would be best at SS. Making Reed a FS would be a huge mistake and a waste of my ability.

What Sayeth the Mob?

Re: Free Safety

Reed, Horton & Laron IMO are all SS the only FS is Kareem. Horton & Reed don't have the speed to play FS IMO they would really need to know their assignments & trust their teammates in order for them to play FS.

Re: Free Safety

I don't see how it would waste your ability, nor his. We'll have to see all what they're doing with the safeties. It seems like we won't have a lone guy back all of the time, so if Reed only has to cover half of the field a good amount of the time no big deal hopefully.

Re: Free Safety

In the article Moore spoke of Reed having some abilities he wished he had and mentioned how intelligent Reed is. They're trying different things right now. Moore seems to be picking things up from Reed and that is a good thing. There's still a ways to go before the season starts.

Re: Free Safety

FS will probably be a revolving door depending on the situation

Re: Free Safety

I, too, am nervous about Reed and FS. I wish we would pick up another FS for better depth.

Yes, I did forget about him. But if Moore gets hurt, do you really want Holmes starting at FS? We need a second starting quality FS and all of our other safeties (besides Holmes) seem best at SS.

Re: Free Safety

Ummm, LaRon is still our free safety. Better coaches get better result from better players and suck as he may at times no one is a better FS on our roster than LaRon.

Laron didn't bulk up like that to play FS.

This, but I do think we are going to see some switched up looks from all the safeties multiple times a game. (LaRon blitz from a SS look, then drop back to FS the the next play, etc..)

Re: Free Safety

LaRon has been saying himself that he'll be playing SS not free safety. At least that's what the plan is. Of course I dont doubt that pretty much everyone will be moved around but that's what he said.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

"Nah, man, I'm playing strong safety," Landry said in a phone interview Sunday."

"What I'm saying is, what I was trying to say, is that strong safety, in my role this season as far as being a leader, I want to know what everybody does on the field. Even the d-linemen and the linebackers," he said. "With me playing strong safety, I'm at linebacker depth, so I need to know my [run] gaps, my coverages and everything."

Re: Free Safety

Wasn't O.J. the FS from the Rams under Haslett?
