Default That Notre Dame Safety

The Notre Dame safety was not good at all today. I can pretty much rule him out for safeties i would bring on this team.

He's subpar in general. He's Roy Williams without the speed and athletic ability and even less ability to cover. He'd be virtually unknown if he didnt play at Notre Dame and was a pro boxer.

How can you say he has no speed? That right there tells me you've never seen him play.

He's fast, he just hasnt had a good season so far. Ive noticed him fumbling alot on punt returns and taking bad routes to tackles.

The reason he was fumbling the punts those 2 weeks, no excused but, every punter he received a punt from before had been right footed. And 2 weeks in a row he had faced a left footed punter, which would give you a different spin on the ball. He wasn't able to practice for this too well because his punter is also right footed.

But I do agree with you on his angles, he missed I recall at least 4 today that he misjudged, leading to a long Purdue touchdown. But thats something that can be improved, I wouldn't mind if we picked him up. But we won't... we need a FS more and he plays SS.

I wasnt aware that had an impact on the grip of the ball after you tuck it and run

I figured you meant his 2 or 3 muffed punts.. other than those I think he's only had 1 fumble while running

The jugs machine they use to practice with can be set either way.

It still doesn't give the full effect of an actual punter. I read the press conference transscript from the Penn State game with Charlie Weis and Tom Zbikowski and thats what they said. So thats what I'm going by.

Or that I'm not a homer. Whatever works for you though.

If you weren't biased, you'd realize it too. Members of the Blue and Gold nation everywhere want him benched for his blown coverage. It's been huge discussion since week two.

he does have a lot of speed, but i just don't think he is that good. the media has to hype up someone on that notre dame defense and he is the best they got, doesn't mean he is that good.

he ran a few sub 11's in high school when he ran track, should run in the low 4.4's during his workouts. if he was that slow he wouldn't be running back punts. I would say they are about the same.

From what I have seen, he is somewhat athletic and is good in north and south run support, but really has problems in coverage and angles.
