I think he was handicapped by a brace he had to wear last year because of a dislocated elbow. Granted he hasn't got the best hands, he's working on it. (I think I read that he stayed longer after practice to train his hands skills on HT.com) Plus I really like him because he can deliver a hit!

He only started 8 games last season. But his career high is 2 ints. Granted we didnt do well across the board in the department either. I would be happy with 5 ints and 10 PDef from him over an entire season this year. More would be better, but I could call that solid.

Am I wrong? I was always under the impression that they were projecting Harrison as a FS. Anyway, I'm disappointed he's gone as well. I was thinking he'd at least make the practice squad. That'll learn me to believe McClain's rehashed ruminations.

The question I'd love to ask Hoke, Richard Smith, Rick Smith, whoever, is why they seem to value run-stopping more than coverage ability in their safeties, whether free or strong. I know there was a discussion(s) on this earlier, but I'd like to get it from the horse's mouth.

chron.com is saying it was brandon mitchell NOT brandon harrison who was released.

How is Roy Williams perfect for our system?

The safeties in our system are interchangeable. We really don't have "strong" and "free" safeties. Both are supposed to be able to step up against the run, cover a RB or TE one-on-one, and play "centerfield" as support against deep passes. By making them interchangeable, it makes it difficult for QB's to read what the defense is doing.

Since Roy Williams is weak against the pass, he would not fit our system at all.
