    Can't be worse than Reeves.

    I think if we lose this week & give up another 30 we will see Molden & Adibi get more PT.

    Molden has been wrecking on ST the past couple of weeks... I'm ready to see him translate those talents onto defense.

    Adibi been highly compared, by some, to Michael Boley. I'm also ready to see what he can do.

    It's not going to kill us if we play these two talented rookie, even if they do have some early bumps in their starts. Besides it isn't like we aren't already getting killed at DB and OLB anyways. IMO, we're only going help the defense by plugging these guys in, not hurt it.

    You mean at 0-4 and go four for four in giving up 30+ ? Yep . I'd say thats the time to experiment for the future with younger players.

    Im excited to see them play whenever their chance is. Our early round draft picks have really turned out from the last couple of years and I cant wait to see what they can do. Im sure D-Rob will have some words of wisdom for Antwaun, cant wait to to see my favorite player get back on the field either!

    Couldn't be much worse than Reeves. What's our opponents' completion percentage against us? I'm scared to look. If Reeves struggles, give him a chance instead of Faggins.

    You know the scouting on Reeves was completely wrong. He is more frustrating that advertised. He gets into position. It so frustrating. How many times have you said to yourself "he's right there"... he just seems to have NO idea when the ball is thrown because he's always in position to make the play but never makes a move for the ball. Is he scared? Is the the career record holder for pass interference yards against? Why does he do that to me. Going down the field... or across the middle, I'll be like oh that's guys' covered.. then the ball is throwing to him and its as if Reeves has no idea.

    sorry, had to vent.

    I dont think they want to throw the kids to the wolves. THis week is Indy. Next few games are Miami, Detroit, and Cincy. I bet we will see more of them from the Miami game onwards. That would actually be a decent game to get their feet wet. Hopefully they are playing a role by the time we visit Baltimore and then face Indy for the second time.

    I agree. Everytime someone makes a catch against him, it looks like it was a perfect throw and catch because he was RIGHT THERE. But if it happens over and over again and this guy is the common denominator, then it's something he's doing.

    He's just running with the receiver and he's rarely (except for that one pass against the Titans) locating the ball. If he could locate the ball, he'd be a monster.

    Did you guys forget that Reeves is the only one on the team with an INT?

    I think Reeves problem is coaching. He has perfect physical abilities for a good corner, and his insticts are good. He just doesn't know how to play the ball yet

    My question is this; Who the hell is going to cover Clark?

    Considering Adibi was mentioned in the thread I figured it'd be the one to post my question.

    We know our starting LB's can't cover anyone, and yes, that includes D-Ryans. Our starting Safeties are too busy running around in circles looking for the ball.

    Here's my suggestion and let me know y'alls thoughts too.

    IMO, we should have Eugene Wilson play the FS. He's played S and CB and I'd think he's more capable to cover Clark than probably anybody else we have.

    If we can't stop Clark, we lose.
