VS. I know this topic has been discussed a few times, but seeing that the draft is around the corner, and most(if not all) are hoping for a new FS, I thought I'd bring it back up. IMO, both of these guys are strong safeties, and neither is suited to play the Free. Here are C.C's career stats: 2005: 79 Tackles, 1 int, 1 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble 2006: 76 Tackles, 1 int, 4 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble, 1 sack Here are Earl's career stats: 2004: 44 Tackles 2005: 35 Tackles, 2 Int, 3 pass deflections 2006: 74 Tackles, 1 int, 3 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble, 2 sacks I remember C.C's rookie year, he lead the team in tackles through a good portion of the beggining of the season. I really liked C.C as a rookie playing SS. Of course he made rookie mistakes, but I thought he was very active and had good instincts at the position. He was also, IMO, very fast to the ball carrier. Originally I think I may have wanted Earl to play the position, but thinking about it, I'd rather have C.C start at the Strong Safety position. He's not as big as Earl, but he hits just as hard. I don't have their actual 40 times, but to me it seems as if C.C plays faster. I also like how C.C plays around the line of scrimmage. Who would you rather start ?
