That's kind of a big deal in man coverage but it should be less of a problem in zone b/c you're looking right at the frickin' Qb taking your reads.... plus, your 10 yards off the WR. He just doesn't have it imo. i'd be tremendously surprised if he came through, but i'm not holding my breath.
& you're right about bennett & kubes but we'll never know what kubes would've done had bennett not been injured so much during the preseason... he inserted Meco & Mario immediately so what's to say he wouldn't have with Bennett had he been showing more than faggins & had he not been injured alot? You know he always touts that "our best players will be on the field..". & 4 or 5 weeks is fine by me as long as he gets in there this year... after what i've seen from reeves, this is a lost cause.
Well, he started for a team that went 13-3 and that was with Roy Williams playing safety behind him. He's clearly struggling right now and I would start Fletcher over him as things stand now. However, it's totally reasonable for the staff to believe he can play better than he is. He had a solid season for Dallas last year and he's got a lot of athleticism.
