    I just pointed out that he and Herron I believe whiffed on the tackles.. The others got blocked up

    Curciu is far from the special teams ace he was brought in to be.. He hasn't done anything

    I rewatched the Texans game and from what the cameras gave me to see he over ran one there and got manhandled on another

    I didn't fail to mention Griffin's play.. Just pointed out your man love for Curciu in a seperate post

    Just admit it he is useless.. He can't back up the LBs which is why we brought in 2 others cuz he was playing so bad.. And he hasn't made a good play on special teams this year while others like Abdullah can do it

    And I pointed out in the other thread that I have no man love for the guy.
    Just pointing out the obvious with respect to how the game is played instead of harping on one player as the cause of our ST's woes.

    Re: not so special teams

    Nope I didn't pin point it on one person.. I said Herron had a bad game and Cedric overran the runner twice

    The rest did okay but didn't stand out

    Curciu needs to be cut.. Will you agree with that now? When he actually gets in position to make a tackle he doesn't break down and overruns or he misses

    He isn't back up LB material.. He isn't a good special teamer.. He is useless

    He is now my least favorite player on the team except for Gus Frerotte

    Get someone in the middle that can make a tackle!!

    They always start right up in the middle where Vinny is or needs to be and end up flying outside

    And at this point in the season who do you suggest we replace him with that would be an upgrade?


    IMO it is the coaches who need to spend more time with him to make sure that he knows his job and that he can execute his responsibility. It can't possibly be an impossible task.

    I will never convince you of any other than that will I.
    ;D

    Comeon my friend, up until 3 games ago when Whinny, Griff and Sharp started playing on ST's they didn't always go up the middle.


    The actually were allowed to get to the outside by the gunners because the gunners ran to a spot that the ball wasn't allowing the returner to get to the outside away from the tacklers.

    Dontarrious Thomas was pretty good at where Vinny is playing

    I would maybe throw Erin Henderson in there

    See what Rufus Alexander can do?

    Anybody but Vinny

    Pretty dubious article singer, lets hope we don't give up anymore "Special Team" touchdowns. We have enough weird records without adding this.
