    The problem is that the lack of run support you see in those clips has been a constant for a number of years, even when he was playing at an all pro level. Most of us, including myself, were willing to let that slide because he was phenomenal at locking down #1 receivers in pass coverage. If his cover skills drop to just average (or worse), then he's a liability for this defense.

    I can’t argue your point. He hasn’t been phenomenal at locking down anyone in a few years. Unless, that somehow changes, he’ll be elsewhere next season. For this season, our secondary will be our Achilles heel unless we start putting more pressure on the QB. I could see Stafford having a big day on Sunday. I just think Murray will have an even bigger day.

    Achilles heel?

    The CARDS pass "D" at 57.7% is #2 in pass completion percentage (Pittsburgh #1 - 56.3)

    A number of our sacks have obviously been of the coverage variety and by extension PP21 and others have been doing their job.

    We've played 2 games, so your stats are rather meaningless. We've also played the Niners without a single healthy WR & oh, by the way, Terry McLaurin did eat our lunch. Look, I hope and pray that I'm wrong. We should be significantly better in the secondary compared to last year, but if there's a single area that may prevent us from getting into the playoffs or better yet, deep into the playoffs, it'll be IMO, our secondary. That's what I meant by Achilles heel.

    Per PFF with one game to go.

    TACKLES

    Humphries has the fifth-highest grade among NFL offensive tackles this season at 88.0, and he's played the most snaps (1,076) among any player at the position.

    Having a stable and healthy O Line is the key to a great season.

    Happy for Humphries. From “Knee-Deep” to “Captain” and a legit upper-tier LT in the NFL.

    His detractors have been mostly silent this year.

    I’m so happy for this guy.

    I’m taking the money I’m paying Fitz and Peterson about 22 million and I’m giving a large part 15/16 and making Brandon Scherff the highest paid guard in football and I put him right next to The Captain and I have the best left side in all of football.

    Absolutely we have, because (for my part) I've become a big supporter. So happy he's proved me wrong!

    Oh this didn't age well. I'm sure you're happy to be wrong tho. He's been a great signing this year. The captain is solid at protecting the blind side.

    Lots of people questioned his character when he got this deal. He 100% shut the mouths of those mind readers, heart discerners.

    Well, I'm extending PUGH to lower his CAP and making a trade with KC for Dr Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to play R-guard. He's 29 and took the season off to help in the fight against COVID. The word is that he's available with one-year left on his deal, a guaranteed $2.75M.

    SAVE the "big" money; we're going to need it.

    If the CAP is at $175M as suggested, then we only have $27M, which includes cutting Alford and are going to be in need of some creative accounting.

    This is a great post to keep in my mind the next time you talk like a know it all, ripping on a player. The next time inevitably being multiple times today.
