Re: Pierson Prioleau or Matt Bowen?

The only big hit Bowen's ever put on anyone was trung in training camp.

Bowen is too much of a liability in the passing game to play him much, it also doesnt help to have the other team see 41 and know a blitz is coming. I like Pierson and Stoutamire myself.

Re: Pierson Prioleau or Matt Bowen?

Our big problem will be slowing Alexander. I think that Bowen is a little better in the run D (not as good in the pass). So Bowen is a better start this week.

So you didn't watch the first two games of last season?

Re: Pierson Prioleau or Matt Bowen?

I go with PP. He has been playing very well.

Bowen is very one dimensional. Not very good in pass coverage. I have been frustrated by Bowen's play in the past. He is good at blitzing Qb, but that is about it.

Those are the only two games where he has played well. He is still a liablitiy in the pass coverage, which is why Williams takes him out in obvious pass plays where he is not going to blitz the SS..

Redskinrat - he didn't really lay any hits where I went wow, what a hit. Not like watching Taylor hit that Cowboys receiver or the Pittsburgh receiver last year. Or like stoutamire vs Moose. Bowen made some good tackles on the blitz, but he didn't really make someone think twice about catching a ball.

Re: Pierson Prioleau or Matt Bowen?

To be honest, Bowen played pretty well in pass coverage last week. If he can keep up that type of play, I'd feel fine with him back there while PP is out.

Yeah, being on IR made him less available......

I'd have to disagree, good naturedly. There was one blindsider on a QB (sorry, don't remember the opposing team) where I expected to see a priest come on for Last Rites. Bowen can bring it, shaky on pass D though.

Exactly, all I was saying was speed isn't his problem.

His decision making on the other hand...

Re: Pierson Prioleau or Matt Bowen?

it's Bowen's closing speed i see as his problem. he can't make those 2 steps up once the ball is in the air. seen too many 'oh, almost there's

I like bowen playing this week. He is a good run stopper and tackler. We'll need that for Alexander. I don't think IMO there is a better blitzing saftey on the team including Taylor. (from what i've seen of cource) Bowen gets to the QB. He has been shaky in pass coverage in the past but he sure did'nt look bad when he made that play on Keyshawn J. late in the Cowgirl game on the sideline. We can use the pressure on Matt; his WR can't catch anyway. (lets hope they get the drops like they had last year!!

I don't know of any safety in this league that can bring it like Taylor!

It is not that Matt Bowen is better at blitzing the QB than Sean Taylor, it is just that the offensive players (QB's in particular) pay more attention to where ST is than MB. They might not notice when Matt Bowen is blitzing, but the QB is always aware of where ST is and if he is blitzing. So ST is less likely to a clear path to the QB.
