    Re: What is going on w/ Winfield??

    If they don't put Smoot on him after the last couple of games, then I don't like our chances too much in Carolina...........

    Re: What is going on w/ Winfield??

    If the pass is on target, with one-on-one coverage, receiver has a huge advantage. And Driver made an exceptional catch on that TD. Can't fault AW on that one. Not saying he hasn't been toasted on other plays, but forget about the term shutdown corner, its about the receiver and QB being on the same page and having the QB deliver the ball. You want a shutdown corner, give me a 6-5 guy that can run a 4.3 and change directions faster than the receiver (because he has to react to his man)...oh yea and be able to do it every play. Doesn't exist, thats why you need help on any developing play, or hope the quarterback throws a bad ball. If more receivers were able to grab the ball high in the air (aka Randy Moss and Marcus Robinson.. there would be a lot more corners in the league getting toasted).

    Awesome comeback Vikes, lets see the second half team come out next Sunday.

    I would jam him at the line and give saftey help. I don't care if it is Smoot or A Winfield because neither of them are playing very well.

    I think the biggest issue is getting pressure on the QB. In order to win this game we need some D-Line production. If they are swarming the QB and getting him on the grass, it wont matter who is covering Smith.

    Yeah i also think Winfleid needs to jam him up, like Al Harris was doing to Nate Burelson, i thought nate had a tough time running his route with harris pushing him all over.

    I think Smoot has been "toast" tons. He was getting beat often Sunday and I'd put AW man on WR any game before Smoot. Smoot talks trash too much, just shut up and play.

    Ted Cottrell's system requires the safety to cover over the top while the corners stay underneath.

    If the safety thinks he's a 8 time pro bowler and wants to jump every route to the house, it doens't work.

    Enter Darren Sharper.

    Ted has a system? That's reassuring. Here all this time I thought he was accidentally making our DB's line up 10 yards back.

    Hey for what it is worth I agree that Sharper takes way too many chances. Never wanted the guy here myself but here he is :grin:

    I just hope his chances = good things more then they = toast.
