We can make a long list of plays that cost us the game lastnight but if I had to point out our biggest failure I would definitely say our Safety play. It was just painful to watch. G. Wilson was horrrible, he can't cover an old lady in crutches or make a tackle to save his life. Y. Bell didin't play very good either but I think he'll pick it up.
The problem I see is that we have a Safety (Bell) who is very good against the run and average/decent in coverage and another safety (Wilson) who is also good vs the run but terrible in coverage. You have to wonder why we signed a guy that has a similar skill set to Bell and doesn't bring a blance to our Safety play (Like say a Safety with better coverage skills would).
So my question . . Is it time to bench him? If he is benched who is better suited to replace him?
I don't think Jason Allen is the answer, maybe our back up safeties culver and clemons. It might be a good time to see what they can bring to the table.
Could Vontae play Safety? I mean it is becoming evident that that Smith can handle the CB spot alone and Vontae seems to have good safety skills: good tackler/hitter (an area where Wilson has failed miserably and which is must-have skill for a safety) good in run support and coverage. His physique is more safetylike then CBlike.
What do you think?
