    Its not like that at all. If you watched Florida at all this year, youd know that their defense won a lot of games for them. They played in a lot of carefully measured games and along those lines there werent a lot of big plays. Who is the one responsible for giving up the big play a lot of the time? Thats right, its the safety. Dont get me wrong, UF had a good DLine and that helps but that doesnt change the fact that when there was a play to be made, Nelson made it. The only time I remember seeing him whiff was in the NC game when Pittman scored that TD....but when that happened a lot of UF fans were stunned because Nelson would normally make that play. Im a little worried that Nelson just had a good year last year...that it was the highwater mark for him but if last year is an indication of the kind of player he is, he is definitely someone we'd want and no, Meriweather isnt as good as Nelson...again going by what we saw last year.

    Deion Sanders said that. I disagree with him. I think Meriweather is more like a Jason Allen type than a Sean Taylor or Ed Reed type.

    I like Merrian over Nelson as well. I agree he doesn't have the same value at #21 given how the draft selections are being predicted, but I think Merrian will be every bit as good as Nelson, if not more so. That is opinion obviously, and there are a lot of people high on Nelson currently.

    Do you know nothing about safety.........there are no cheao shots....its part of the position..........I bet the next time he "cheap shots the guy" a few plays later that guy will be wide open and drop the ball.......because he will be anticipating the hit........ Not looking should been ready for hit.............those "cheap shots" when the WR is not looking is when ball gets jared out..........................come on...realy study the Safety position...... :hammer:

    i like that. i guess its his fault for them not seeing him. i guess he should warn the guy before he hits him.

    Reggie Nelson took a stress test, and it failed.

    Reggie Nelson once intercepted an Earth-bound meteor.

    Cro-Magnons, Neanderthals, Homoerectus, Homosapien, Reggien Nelsonus

    Missle defense system?? Never fear, Reggie Nelson is here.
