I’m not understanding the newcomer and rated 4th comment..........Dick84 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 1:10 pmWho?NorCal RF wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 1:06 pmAgain we will agree to disagree. What you are stating is yes part of his performance but I just don’t think he has been great in coverage. Good ok but not great. That jump you are referring to if you want to give him credit for his play calling as a contributing factor to that number then fine I’m good with it but in regards to actual play I think others have contributed more to that stat then him.Dick84 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:52 pm
I'm saying I have no idea where the "coverage" thing comes from when the secondary is producing at a higher level than last year.
You seem to think his ability to organize the D and get everyone on the same page doesn't apply to the package of his performance. Because, to me, when that's what he was primarily brought in for.
So.. to me... that's the 1st priority in evaluating him... how is he getting the D lined up? Second is he's fine in coverage.. the Rams pass defense has taken a jump this year.
And.. again... his leadership is what the team wanted... but PFF has graded his play a 75.. which is good and higher than any of the Rams newcomers.
And... back to the original question... where does he rank on newcomers?
I had him rated 4th, you think that’s too high? Tell me why.
Even though it’s just six games I feel Johnson was better in coverage. Rapp has been over the last few games. Early on no but lately yes. I’m not sure if are we including CB’s but clearly Ramsey is and I feel Robey - Coleman has too.
I think we are debating “apple and oranges”. I said he has been ok to good. Not bad or a “embarrassment”. You view his play better than that. I get he has held that unit all together during injuries and trades. And yes it counts. I just don’t feel as much as your are meriting which is fine.
