London was never elite one-on-one and now being a tick slower he's actually a liability. But if you leave him covering the middle of the field London has shown (no surprise here) elite QB/play recognition and puts himself in position to break up passes and get a few interceptions. In other words one of his greatest talents, football IQ, is being minimized when he's forced into man coverage.
His talent/effectiveness is minimized anytime you take him away from the middle of the field. London should always be "covering" the middle of the field or blitzing, run or pass, because that is maximizing his skill level. Very similar to Urlacher actually, who's legs are much further gone than London's but the Bears scheme keeps him right in the middle and he's already got an INT this year. London, IMHO, is a superior MLB to Urlacher today, but our guy is playing way out of position.

...and it's so effing obvious, makes me want to throw my glass of scotch at the tv Hate this regime so much right now. If I was London I'd be demanding a trade, instead he just keeps quiet and plays his guts out (injured, btw). Wish I had that kind of character.
Fletcher is the truth. Although I've seen him cover in the middle of the field like you mentioned, he also done a good job near the hash marks and by the sidelines in coverage. There's not too many middle linebackers or inside linebackers better than #59.

Re: Defensive Parts

Fletcher was the truth.

The real truth this year is that he's clearly lost a step. Anyone who can't see that simply isn't watching or is in denial.

Just another prime example of MD's ignorance. Sad because he seem like a good guy otherwise. I chalk it up to low real world exposure on his part.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

Re: Defensive Parts

Put your "whistles" away.

Sure, maybe I'm not well-schooled in the urban/youth/pop-culture linguistics of today...I admit it. I don't watch MTV or your popular shows like Honey Boo Boo.

I saw the comment and said "What does that even mean?"

Taken literally..."Fletcher is the truth"...what does that even mean?

Nothing personal against REDSKINS4ever...we're all here as Skins fans and I have no problems with anyone because our fandom that brought us all here.

If Fletcher is the truth, I'm making this proclamation now...

Tony Romo is the lie. Makes the same amount of sense to me.

Just wondering, why does everything go back to MTV on here when someone says they don't understand a certain lingo? Not judging you but just wondering.
