And playing off the WR(Nate is physical) allows him to back pedal and react or play the Line and jam the Slot out of position.
Remember this is the NFL where QBs' trust
their man to be open downfield. Nate should know if he has Safety help over the top or not. If he has help he has a better chance at coming up big with a turnover. If not, he's capable enough to fight for the ball.
Too much is being made about Nate imho. He should have been moved to the 2nd spot last season where his Fysicality matches well with slot Receivers who are less likely to play physical with an F.
I'm going to worry about positions 4 thru * in Dime packs and less time worrying about 1 thru 3.
Oh and btw, I take exception to anybody calling him a FA Bust. The game is geared toward OFFENSE since it's a PASSING LEAGUE. He doesn't give up that many big plays. And the plays he has given up can be attributed to the occasional whiff when he jumps the route or when the Safety was not where the Safety was SUPPOSED to be in ZONE coverage situations. Then you have games where you can't keep a guy from scoring just cause the Sun shine's even on a Dog's ass. Up to last season Nate kept his assignments under 75 yards average with a handful of Catches.
Yeah that sounds like a FA Bust. I say to you who are
out your ass that you don't have clue one of what you're
