    Does anybody have a link to a video of this? I heard it was extremely obvious, but I never got to see it.

    My therapist and I were finally able to get that image out of my head. I don't want to see it again.

    Coleman did the exact same at the same area of field against Kansas City. I believe it was Larry Johnson and he was going to lay the wood on Coleman, he bailed out.

    Both of them happened in front of the Bull Pen inside the 10.

    I would like to see both of those clips and compare the similarties.

    I just don't see how a player can be that selfish and be like "hell no, I'm not gonna hit him"

    Ah, I swore that I would never mention it again after I read he ran down the coach and was gripping about it. That was good enough for me. Let it go, turn the page. Willie Parker is the real deal. As long as Fanaca is in front of him, P-buc won't be the last one made to look silly. P-buc is never ever going to be a physical corner. JMHO.

    Well that's not really his style (from what I've read, he didn't show much style last year). He's supposed to be a finesse corner, that will take some risks to hit away a ball or get an INT. I think Dieon Sanders was the same way, never too physical, but dang near perfect at finesse.

    whats the heck is wrong with him......i know he's just a corner and all he wants is pass defence or intercepts but he needs to learn how to tackle. he should play rugby league so he can harden up or some one like mario or peek should hit him HARD just so he can get used to the physical side of the game.

    in rugby league EVERYONE wants to tackle or atleast try to, ofcourse they probably get bumped of like hell, but they pick themselves up and try again, cause HELL NO are any rugby league players gonna just lay down and make it easier for the runner...

    but yeah all buchannon need is a good hit from dunta just to harden him up :redtowel:

    I agree with turning the page: blog post on secondary.

    When CC got PBuc, he got him as a light-hitting cover corner. They knew what they wree getting, and they thought, in his words, they could "coach him up."

    They might still can.

    People can stay bitter at the cost of acquiring PBuc, but ultimately, those are sunk costs, he is cheap to keep, he has demonstrated embarrassment about the ole, and its now a new year.

    Let's wish him the best and hope the new season puts him in a better position to succeed. That is one of Kubiak's mantras--putting players in positions that they can excel and giving them confidence that their hardwork will lead to good results. Who can argue with that?

    I think with Buc he had some really BAD coaching in Oakland, and some of it effected him menatly.........If he can get over it and learn his technique, cause Hoke is the best at it, I think we will see plenty of highlight films from him.

    He should be much more effective this year with an improved pass rush and better run defense by the front 7.

    Even if he leads the league in INTs?? INTs returned for touchdowns?? Punt Returns returned for touchdowns??

    I understand it's bad to avoid contact, when you're the last guy..... but that means 9 other guys...... 9 guys whose job is to stop Larry Johnson, or Willie Parker screwed up as well.

    I'm not trying to defend Buchanon....... but... I'd like to see him get the opportunity to do what he was brought here to do.....

    Buchannon is no way near the play of Deion, who was a shut down corner.

    Nice try.
