    That was a huge play last night.

    Turned the game around and gave us the chance to win.

    Simmons is a play maker.

    He needs to be on the field so he can learn and adjust.

    Well Simmons should have ran that interception in for 6. He had fresh legs, so disappointed in him.

    :sarcasm:

    To be honest, I wasn't sure who that was that intercepted the ball at first. So happy for him. Hope that is one of many more great plays.

    As I said earlier Hicks has been a liability in coverage so far and not very good against the run too
    Simmons must play, the management must force the idiot coordinator to play the kid

    Something we lack in our front 7 is speed. We look so so slow to close once a completion is make. Simmons needs to play

    Well done Isaiah but that was a terrible pass from Wilson. He floated it, it was behind the receiver anyway and was never getting caught and chances are if Simmons doesn't pick it then Thompson does.

    The problems with Simmons right now he that he is fast of foot but slow to think and the thinking is more important. It's why Vance is only using him in very specific roles with the thinking removed.

    That will certainly come along faster with game time. You can only learn so much watching from the bench.

    Agreed but they aren't going to give much game time to a guy who gave up 2 TDs in his first 12 snaps while making a playoff run.

    juza76, I get it, but we're not in that defensive room. I can agree that it's up to VJ to extract and utilize the talents that made I.S. a "no-brainer" pick, but it's incumbent upon the player too, to study, practice well, and not just go out there winging it on Sundays thus hurting the team. I believe he'll get better but I'm not going to come down extra hard on our DC without perhaps hearing more from him on why he's being brought along so slowly. Vance has had two very good games in a row. (the Jets game was okay IMO) so I'm willing to see how things go the next few weeks.

    I'm hopeful the snapcount rises in the upcoming weeks but maybe the shortened off-season played a bigger role than we think? We can speculate a million reasons as to why he's not starting or getting significant snaps but it hurts looking at a team like Carolina with Jeremy Chinn who is starting and balling out for them in a similar role to which we all saw Isaiah in.

    Vance Joseph history saying he is not a very good coach, but what I don't trust about him is the use of his personnel
    An example, we watched gardeck came in and in a couple of series he put couple of sacks and some pressure, but after that he barely watched the field as pass rusher, he prefers using Fitts who haven't done anything at today
    Do u remember when he made Curtis Riley the starter and we saw how he wasn't ready or good to play
    I do think he is so infatued with his crappy schematics that make him blind evaluating player talent
    I know discipline matter but talent is more important..

    Good point. Talent assessment is the key. He hasn't been the best at that and I as well cringe at his moves on occasion. I panic whenever I see Kevin Peterson on the field. And Riley..... Sheez....

    If DK wasn't there, IS may have returned it for a TD.
