would you pay this guy $3M a year?


I would quick fast and a hurry
Dude is horrible vs the pass and has been most of his career. He's only intercepted 4 passes total in his last 5 years and 2 of those seasons were goose eggs despite starting all 32 games. Has one season in his career with double digit passes defensed (his rookie yr, which was his one really good season). Also had a propensity for stupid penalties.

So, no.

This is one of those huge "who gives a fuck" things IMO

I guess it gives whiners who hate Zeke something else to pile on about, but "dog bites person" happens everyday in real life.

Did you see the photos? It's gross.

get real, he's a better hitter and tackler than any DB on this roster

I dont care, he's a zero vs the pass and a knucklehead on and off the field.

Don't need him, nor do I want him here.
if you've never played S, it's mostly about knocking the snot out of people (run / pass) at full speed

as for "vs the pass" ...

how many screens did our DBs blow up in 2019?
when's the last time any of our DBs laid anyone out? or put fear in a WR ... let alone a TE / RB?

we need DBs with ball skills - we also need maniacs back there to knock the ball loose

and I don't mind knuckleheads - as long as they make plays and have a short contract

Yep just what we need, a bunch of free first downs via penalty for unnecessary roughness. This ain't high school ball. You "lay 'em out" you're gonna eat the yellow flag.

Knuckleheads especially.

Its a passing league genius.

The real "hitting" part of the game has been mostly eliminated anyway. No receivers feel intimidated anymore going over the middle because the rules protect them so much.

We need guys who can play in space and make plays on the ball. Interceptions are great, but we need guys who can at least disrupt passing lanes and get passes defensed.

Reid was a really good player as a rookie but he has been a JAG ever since, and he is awful in space.

this secondary does not lack play speed to disrupt passing schemes
they lack just thumbs, and heart ... I HOPE THE DC CHANGE WILL HELP

in our last playoff game this D gave up 270y on the ground, and your scared of a yellow flag .... dude

go watch any tape from 2018 or 2019, how many missed open field tackles?
again Reid takes far better angles than any DB on this team and gets there fast with violent intent

remember the last Philly game?
that wasn't about bad coverage, it was bad tackling
no one is afraid to attack the flats vs the team even with our LBs because the Ss don't (or cain't hit)

this really ain't fantasy football
