Spencer generally covers Fitz
Remember when Arizona had TWO great Pro Bowl Receivers, instead of just one?
yup, glad boldin fell off the face of the earth. the clements injury definitely hurts our defense, love him or hate him he gets beat sometimes but he is a very solid corner. everyone gets beat. brown has to step up now and show why he got his extension.

Originally posted by Thorhawk: another brilliant move having clements return punts. this coaching staff is completly retarded in every aspect of the game
A lot of teams use star players for punt returns: John Taylor, Dieon Sanders just to name a couple.
if Clements had the ability to break a return the distance any time he touched the ball like Deion did that would be a different story. However, he doesnt. It was stupid to risk injury to a guy who has limited return ability.
I think losing Nate Clements is going to be big. I personally thought he had been playing well and now we are thin at corner and Tarrell Brown and Shawntae Spencer are two guys who have struggled staying healthy in the past. Plus Clements was our most physical corner and we will miss him when we play teams like Arizona.
