Is there something we dont know?? whats going with spencer this year? how does someone go from being our best cb for the past few years go to not even dressing up??
Terrell brown is clearly our only weakness on d but hes still somehow our #2 cb over cully and spencer...maybe spencer isnt the same player but cully is clearly better than brown
From my understanding, Spencer would have had a great shot at starting had he stayed healthy. But, his injuries during the preseason, and then again a few weeks ago, have severely limited his practice time. Other players have stepped up in his place, as shown by his healthy scratch today.
I would agree that Brown at corner is the weakest part of our defense, but, for now, I prefer having Culliver stay as that nickle guy. It's what he's been practicing, and keeping him there for the time being will allow him to gain a greater level of comfort and confidence at his position. Not only that, but, with the way this defense has been playing, I'd be afraid to make any changes right now.
Its obvious Brown is our second best CB so far. I think Culliver is going to be a good one though.
The coaches DO know more than us. If they thought that Spencer or Brock were better theyd be ahead of him. I think even Rogers was burnt more in the Dallas game (his only bad game so far) than Brown has all season.
