He may not be worth the 7 mil a year, but it can't be argued against that he is good if not great. He always shuts down the best wr's in the game. Let's See Fitz, Steve Smith, Burress, Andre Johnson, Chad Johnson....and so on and so on. He has shared coverage a little more this year with Spencer but Nobody can deny that he is one of the best all around CB's out there. He is the best tackling cb, and great at forcing fumbles as well. (ask adrian petersen and every other rb we go against who the best tackling cb is and they will all say Clements)
He has only had 2 bad games in recent memory.....against Owens but Owens schools everybody (Bailey gave up 200 and 2 td's as well a few yrs ago), and Roddy White...(1 missed tackle goes 90 yards)
Don't any of you think if Clements was in against Tenn he would of held Justin Gagde to nothing and tackled Chris Johnson a lot better than Brown who missed tackles. Even with our turnovers that game would of been a win
Don't you think If Clements was in he would NOT of missed the tackle on Jennings and that means NO TD for Jennings. Also he would of certainly held Jennings 125 yards in check....NOT TO MENTION Ryan Grant would of converted less third downs and less running yards??? And the last time i checked......we only needed 1 more stop on 3rd down to have a chance to win.
Clements is our second or third best player on D and a great CB, i hope you all see how important his coverage is and tackling is when compared to the alternative.
