ESPN is talking about Hopkins?

I didn't say no one should have an opinion, I was just saying it is stupid to try and knock on a WR that has been in the league for 1 year

Dustin Keller is going to try to make it back, after having his knee obliterated by Swearinger in last preseason.

Came across what I found interesting from PFF.

Safeties (All Plays) – The Top Five



There are two ways in which we look at safeties and we’ll start with all plays regardless of where they line up on the field. In this regard, it’s the Houston Texans’ D.J. Swearinger leading the way but, like Porter at cornerback, he saw his overall grade against the run take a big hit with eight missed tackles. That’s something that can be improved upon, though, and if it does we could see an impressive second season from him.

Swearinger will have to pick up his coverage and tackling skills (too many critical missed tackles after the catch), though, if he is to become a well-balanced safety factor.

Well I hope he becomes a great player, because outside of him and Hopkins last year's draft is looking like a complete wash.

I might be a bit critical of DJ and hope he does get better, but last season he wasn't much more than a box safety. A Roy Williams type

No offense CnD, but looking at the kind of criticism you've assessed on Swearinger, I get the feeling people forget he was a rookie. Like they expected him to be Ed Reed (the HOF Ed Reed) from day 1, when Ed Reed wasn't that good from day 1.

Yes Swag has a lot to improve on but from listening to him talk, he's well aware of it & he's working in that direction.

I have no idea how you got the idea I directed harsh criticism towards Swearinger. I simply pointed out what he would need to work on to be the safety he, the team and fans want him to be.

He was placed close to the box by Wade a great deal of the time after Cushing went down to try and plug the run stop sieve. As teams are showing more and more shotgun, it will not be surprising to me to see what we seen in college.....a lot of the 3 safety formations.

As a side note, on some of those whiffed tackles he actually did emulate the 2013 version of HOF Ed Reed.

I'm a swearinger fan. A big swearinger fan. He and Hopkins were easily my two favorite picks from their draft. Followed by griffin and jones.

Some of those other guys had potential, iiwii right now.

Swagg needs to become a better tackler. More under control. Take the big shots, but be true.

Coverage....that's another area. But I think he's pretty fundamental, but he needs to just refine it.

People keep talking about the ineptitude of Brandon Harris, and rightfully so, but swag boy has been nearly as bad. In the first drive alone, he gave up huge plays to let the Cards convert first downs. It's not even that he was beat, he was horribly beaten or completely lost. On one play, he completely turned around in what appeared to be short zone coverage and the ball was promptly placed where it appeared he was supposed to be. It's not a good deal when your inside cover guys are consistently beat and I am concerned that we are in for a lot of that this year.

I believe one of his knocks out of college was being over aggressive this misreading plays

I was happy about the potential, but watching him is damn hard. He needs to pull a complete 180 here in the next few weeks or we are really in for some hurt. I'm already convinced that Harris is going to be consistently beat in the slot.

And that honestly would be one thing, where he bites on a fake or goes for the INT when in zone but misses. Turning your back to the QB in what appeared to be short zone is just terrible play.
