Clements is overpaid and underrated.
He isn't as good as his pay scale and he isn't as bad as the Webzone makes him out to be.
Restructure and keep him, he is a solid CB and the best on our roster.
LOL! Clements will 90% be a 49er next year with a restructured deal and the 49ers want him back. Besides who's worse? Clements, Spencer and Goldson or Lawson, Haralson and Brooks. You guys rag on the secondary INT total, but our three starting OLBs have just as few sacks.
Very good point. We don't have that one guy that can cause consistent pressure but in 2009 we were tied for 3rd in the NFL in sacks and this year we were tied for 14th but yet our cover corner rarely get INT's.
Nate had 3 INT's this year with one being irrelevant since he gave it right back and only had 1 INT last year.
So even when we are getting pressure, he still doesn't get the takeaways that you'd like.
With that said, I wouldn't be opposed to him moving to #2 on running downs and playing the slot on passing downs .
I think Spencer is a better cover corner but Nate is a better "all around" corner in which I would put him on the field with Nmandi or Prince in likely running situations and take the chance if the team is willing to pass, that he can cover the offenses #2 WR.
its a terrible point, we dont start 3 olb's as he indicates so i tuned out his comment
Clements is a damn good corner, however he is over the hill by all means. Check out this thread
look at his stats
(Tackles(Solo+Assists)/Sacks/Forced Fumbles/Interceptions/Pass Defend)
Now take a look at the rest of our starting CB/FS/SS
UM ACCORDING TO THIS OUR CORNERS PLAYED THE BEST
If anyone needs to go it is Goldson and we need to sign Dawan Landry to SS and move Smith to FS.
