    How long ws he the DBs coach though? The scheme weve run for the secondary has been the same for a long time. We need to start playing more press man, and blitzing more.

    just as a simple guess? Champ stays on the strongside since most runs and QB bootlegs tend to go to that side, I don't agree that its a wise way to utilize his skills but it may be possible that they keep him there in run support and to cover receivers on that side of the field when the QB rolls out?

    Why have your best CB (maybe best in the league), playing against a #2 scrub... while watching the opposing #1 RAPE a rookie.

    It's just stupid.

    its because he is our best run support DB, our safeties suck especially manuel. for his first game as a rookie JW did quite well he gave up 1 maybe 2 plays to bowe, but bly was on him most of the game. JW, champ, and dre were not the problem this last game.....it is and has been our piss poor safety play against the run and in coverage.

    Nnamdi Asomugha
    Terrence Newman
    Asante Samuel
    Charles Woodson
    Rhonde Barber
    Antonio Cromartie

    Notice a pattern here? All of the teams these guys play on have a competent to very good corner playing across from them. And with Champ it's no different. People like to trash Bly, but he's done a pretty good job imo holding up his end of the bargain playing across from Champ.

    That's pretty sad....

    Might as well go out and get 2 good corner backs, instead of paying for one great corner who is limited to one side of the field, which usually doesn't involve the opposing #1.

    I know, and it's the dumbest philosophy I've ever heard.

    Geez, what do you think the offense will do? Put their best WR on the other side maybe?

    He's stated that he wants to go up against the best.... and covering some #2 scrub and watching a rookie getting eatin' alive is not good use of a top notch/top dollar corner.
