Perhaps the coaching staff was not too confident with Moore's knee.
So continues our team's continuing practice of putting strong safeties with poor coverage skills at the free safety position. Atogwe's injuries has really screwed up the secondary and not having a safety with good coverage skills is not helping the situation. Given that they are trying out young guys, I would say put Gomes out there if he has any coverage skills.

Re: No Moore Kareem

Hate bringing up ST#21, but the day he died was the day our FS problems began; and we've never since replaced him with a decent option.

Hopefully we can get (via draft) a FS this year in the 2-3rd round.

Yeah I hate when people still bring it up also.

For the life of me I can't figure out what makes the Skins coaches think Landry or Doughty are decent FS's or could even play the position. I think it has been atleast 5 yrs now most of us fans complain about the lack of coverage skills by the two. Both are suited for SS in the box attacking the QB or RB.

Everybody here's bein hard on Doughty as a FS, but teams have not beat us deep much w/him there. Sure he's limited & doesn't often make plays on the ball. Overall, coverage has not been our problem during this losing streak IMO.

Re: No Moore Kareem

If you want quality starting free safeties, you usually have to commit a high draft pick(3rd round or higher) or make a FA signing. Just the nature of the beast. Dwell on that for a moment.

They came very very close to starting Gomes last week.

Mentioned this a few weeks ago, but what if we had gone with Allen's choice and drafted Eric Berry? No idea who our left tackle would be

Yeah I think doughty gets more hate then he should. He's not a starting caliber saftey but he's done decent. I have much bigger problems w our corners then I do w reed.

As much as id love to have berry can you imagine our outrage if we drafted a saftey (even as good as berry) over tw or okung? There would have been a riot.

Everyone would have been definitely aching over Okung. Not many Skins' fans wanted Trent, from my limited knowledge of the situation. Heck, folks might have said "we should have drafted Clausen".

At FS I take it? I know they intended to play him at FS when he was drafted, but man that's a big jump for him. Can't see that playin Romo & co. this week. Seems more a SS. Instincts seem good though, he's a ball player if nothing else.

He's been injured a couple of times, but he's been getting good reviews the time that he has played. Matt Williamson from Football Today raves about him at times.
