    The fact that he only GETS ON THE FIELD in dime situations and it took until the 7th game to get in at all speak volumes as far as I'm concerned. Not saying he won't end up being a solid player eventually, but right now he's not.

    I dont mind that it took him a while to get on the field... considering the holdout and position switch. And thats acknowlaging that with both of those he should have only missed 4 weeks, not 6. But considering we have a pretty complicated defense... and that he wasnt a top 10 pick or anything (who I expect to make an immediate impact)... As long as he is playing and eventually starting his rookie year, I'm good. I expect him to start very soon... and thats perfectly fine for a mid-1st round pick...

    ditto my man, completely agree and hope he continues to improve and see more time on the field

    I keep hearing this same tired argument. Troy played behind a better safety than we have starting on this team. Also Troy contributed to the team his rookie year and played in, I believe every game on DEFENSE. Allen played some special teams, and just did get on the field for a play or two last week and some dime situations today.

    I've said this before, and I'll say it again and stand by it: A First round pick should SIGNIFICANTLY contribute to his team. A first round pick SHOULD have some sort of impact. That's why they are picked in the first round. First round selections are project players they are play makers. Their are exceptions of course. But first rounders who are going to be stand outs normally stand out immediately.

    Put Allen in now and see what hes got. The season is shot so time to see what young playmakers we have so we can hopefully cross a position or two off the list. No excuse to not do this anymore.

    I thought Allen did well and showed his truly marvelous athleticism. He also did not screw up.
