    Sharper as SS?

    i was looking at the vikings.com depth charts, and theyhave sharper as a SS and dwight smith as FS. has anyone heard anything else, it seems sharper would be the ideal pick at FS, as he's a ball hawk, but not as physical as some would like for a SS. i sure hope that was an error on their part.

    I think it is an error. He was lining up at FS during training camp. We'll know for sure come moday! On a side note I love the fact that there are multiple player pics on the vikings site now!

    I don't think it matters which side Sharper lines up, it's been stated numerous times that there is no Strong Safety as such in Tomlin's version of the "Tampa 2". Both safety positions have more in common with the Free Safety style of play, so it's more likely of having both safeties perform the same functions on opposite sides of the field, rather than having one Strong Safety and Free Safety as defined in other systems.

    The injury to Tank Williams ended that.

    No, he's the starting SS. He (Sharper) said it in an interview I heard and so did Childress in a seperate interview. However, Childress said there is very little distinction between the two in the tampa 2 and that they are mostly interchangable. I believe Tomlin also said they'd move back and forth at times.

    Sharper will play SS, but in the cover-2 defence, the FS and SS are very alike, but he will now lineup vs the TE more..

    The Vikes would be better off not messing with something that already works.. Sharper is best suited at FS.. Dwight Smith is a ball hawk, and can hit hard.. He is best suited at SS.. I am sure it was an error..
