From historical perspective, Swearinger simply can't help himself.........the next HC would do well to offer him a.........

Oh and getting beat on a double pass trick play was icing on the proverbial cake for "Swagg" last night...
Not even sure they throw the flag if the texans are 11-2

It looked like the refs were throwing flags for having to be at that game

great player, but two bad habits that we knew he had still need to be broken. he's a hitter instead of a tackler (as seen on a 60+ yard TD run that he got trucked), and he lets his emotions get the better of him.

Default Re: 2nd round DJ Swearinger

I don't realy think Swearinger is all that great. He is pretty consistently missing tackles. Obviously, he got epically trucked bad in the one game, missed a crucial tackle on a guy out in the flats early in the season, among others. He's been caught a few times in coverage holding because he was beat.

His attitude problem is terrible. He doesn't look like he listens to his coaches either. I know the team is on a horrible losing streak and you may not love your coach, but if you are a rookie and you are making back to back bonehead plays, just stfu and listen to your coach. He can't even do that. He cost us points and then is still talking back to the coach. That whole episode showed me much of what I need to know about him. I don't think that's something you "grow out of," more likely it's just something that is in him. He just looks like he isn't in control of himself. Controlled rage is good on the field, but nobody wants a guy that can't control himself.

Look at this draft class guys. It's horrendous. The entire class, outside of Hopkins, is bad or was injured early on. I can't remember a draft class that contributed less in its first year.

It's probably pretty close to the 2007 draft class. Rick really sucks at drafting and it's a damn shame we're going to be stuck with him screwing up draft after draft. I also think Swearinger is never going to be more than an average box safety, a crappier version of Pollard.

Agree.

Why are we keeping Smith? Hopkins is OK for what he is but Texans need speed.

Is DJ just small? In his short career he has had a few very memorable butt whippings.

I was full of rage when talking about DJ during the year, given how terrible the team was. I still feel somewhat the same way. Maybe he does mature, but that episode was facepalm worthy.

I'm not big on DJ or Hopkins as elite players. We just have to do a better job drafting starting in a few weeks.

Solid players, nothing special, hopefully they improve in yr 2.

I'm sure Rick Smith had nothing to do with their drafting.

Hopkins played pretty good as a rookie. Will he be elite? I doubt he ever becomes a dominant #1, but he can be a solid one or a really good #2. Remember that he was drafted late in the 1st round. The elite guys are typically gone by then.

As for Swearinger, he was a 2nd round pick who started a bunch of games as a rookie. He had his struggles, but let's see how he does with a new DC and an upgrade at FS next to him.
