    yah EJ is good, still looks like a liablity in the passing defense to me. i'm liking the 3-4 look. looks like we have been causing more pressure and it finally looks like our defense is beginning to gel a little bit.
    Yeah dude that seemed to be the case last year and possibly the year before but since he's played this years hes been all over his assignments. I've seen EJ do some really really good things in pass coverage then totally blow one, but not this year, dudes on his A game, can wait to see him this weekend.

    Re: Napolean Harris feeling frustrated about football

    i haven't really every just watched EJ play a coverage on our passing defense. i just saw/heard our LBs being out of position and i just kind of grouped them all together, which was wrong i'll admit it. i'm glad to hear his coverage skills have improved greatly, i know he makes tons of tackles for us so i hope he becomes the LB that we all wanted him to become.

    Thanks Josdin

    It was a trade to SAVE cap money. Nap was just something thrown in. I feel bad for him but that is the business side of football.

    I think the original trade had more to do with Cap money and getting rid of a team distraction, more that trying to replace Moss with a better player..

    fact, I don't think it is possible to replace Moss with a better position player.....Moss is and always will be one of the tops of my list of Best Positional Players..

    Would be nice in the long run to see Troy and Napo turn out to be top shelf players in our organization, to make the Moss loss, less hurting..

    The Moss trade probably was made for cap reasons, but we also needed help at linebacker. Harris has the abilty to shore up the defense in that position, we just have maximize his abilities to do that. Now that we seem to have gone to the 3-4, he needs to show what he can do.
