    All of our secondary has missed several tkls a game including VHIII so why is Purify just getting singled out?

    The CBs will rotate and will probably guard each receiver.

    The very next play if I recall correctly. I was thinking at the time "redemption".

    If Roberson is healthy and ready to go, he is our best or 2nd best CB. To me the best two look like Hargreaves and Roberson though Watkins is a close #3. Purifoy is #4.....even though he's still good.

    This. Purifoy gets beat more than the others and draws WAY more PI calls than the others.

    Funny and true.

    As for PIs, I seem to recall Roberson getting more of them, but I could be wrong. Life is good when a supposed first round pick is your third best corner.

    general (I use that loosely) agreement on this thread is the VHIII is better coverage and LP a big play guy but VHIII has 3 - 1 INTs. Dont get me wrong, I really like LP and I didnt start this to bash anyone. But my feeling is that I am nervous why LP is in coverage because he holds like it is his job and has missed more tackles than the other CB so far this year. VHIII seems to be very solid, and at this point the best true freshman CB in the first 4 games that I member in the past 20 years.

    But as some have said, it is a good problem to have. I just wish LP would lay of the PIs and just cover.

    Just have to disagree....i dont see anybody running outside the tackles on us....thats where our superior team speed kicks in. There is always at least 2 or 3 guys in the area on the outside for assisted tackles.

    If someone wants to run on us, they will do it up the middle.

    Josh Evans made tackles because Bostic and Jenkins were getting washed out/blocked.....He made more tackles in between the hashes than outside of them
