Really on the fence about this one. On one hand, a safety with some more coverage ability is definitely a need/upgrade. On the other, this years D will be more vulnerable imho, especially up the middle while bow is recovering. let whitner go and roll with a full blown youth movement and all that comes with it or see if there's a way to carve out a deal and keep a veteran presence around for a year or 2 more.
Whitner was the 5th best safety in coverage last year per Pro Football Focus.
Maybe I don't know what the fucc I'm watching when I'm studying film b/c I'm a WBZ "Newbie" and b/c posting 1000's of times a day on a message board somehow elevates my "opinions" over others and validates my football acumen. So I guess since I'm a new poster IDK what the fukc im talking about??!!! lol hahaha
Man bruh stop with the BS "facts"....FACT is Whitner was one of the BEST SAFETIES in the game last yr (backed by his stats), a LEADER and GENERAL of a VERY SOPHISTICATED AND NUANCED PASSING DEFENSE THAT ranked 7th in NFL
, starting a rookie S (whom Hitner GROOMED), past his prime CB-Rogers, New starter in Brock, injured but efficient T-brown, rotating list of CBs (Cox, Wright, Nmandi), but still MADE intelligent plays, underrated coverage skills, solid ball skills, and was the on-field PLAY-CALLER coupled with PUNISHING and INTIMIDATING hits in a PHYSICAL NFC WEST where your S need to be BIG HITTERS and WRAP ARTISTS!
Don't kid urself Whitner is one of the games best (def TOP 10 S) and his numbers prove that. But I agree with NCommand-of course at the RIGHT PRICE. We're trying to win a SB with a tight window, we don't need too many rookie projects in our 2ndary trying to "figure it out" just bc we got lucky with Reid!!
NCOMMAND- I like ur posts, a lot of it I agree with but I TOTALLY DISAGREE
with ur assessment about Whitner and his coverage/skill/ability, YES in 2012, but def WRONG about 2013 Whitner playing alongside less of a gambler in Reid versus DASHON last yr. The unresearched and blind HATE for Whitner on WBZ is often times stupid and annoyingly clouded with conjecture and ignorance. The man was the #7 overall rated Safety b4 he even got to SF.... And many think we will strike lightning in a bottle twice by pairing REID with another rookie S (who wont have the benefit of receiving mentorship or being groomed like Hitner did REID) even though our PASSING D is known as one of the most complicated and nuanced in the entire NFL,...and SUCCESSFUL!!!
