To be fair Kegley is the worst interviewer in the world. He interviewed me before and it was just awkward and turrible. I remember leaving and being like "This dude does this for a living? No way, that can't be possible."

In the past three contests, quarterbacks have a 127.0 passer rating when throwing in Brock's direction, according to Pro Football Focus (14 of 21, 250 yards, 3 TDs, INT)."

Push him Wright!

I'd rather see him compete as the slot DB and let C Rogers cover outside on certain passing situations.

That could work. I'd personally push Wright to play both outside spots for Brown/Rogers (get him some snaps at his natural position)...would love to move Morris inside to the slot and try him out there (develop him) and also use Wright ahead of Cox in the dime.
Will be interesting to see how he plays but really right now the secondary is not the problem. They are one of the few groups that has stepped up this year. Wish he was a good WR instead. Anyways, has anybody seen Cox out there lately? Seems like he is getting limited time and also with him not getting returns he could be gone after this year. He can be tendered at 1.4 mil but not maybe we are weeding him out? Then again might need him if Brown, Brock, Rogers aren't on the team next year. I think we could look to bring Wright back as well for cheap but of course depends on how he plays.
Some good news from yesterday's game: Eric Wright looked very good at CB for his first game in awhile. He covered very well IMO...the long-gain catch Colston made over him was just an amazing catch by Colston - got to give him credit for making a play (Colston started the catch by extending to grab the back-half of the ball). Also, he made some good run-support tackles - he had four tackles overall. Looking forward to seeing him play the rest of the season.

True...BUT, I believe it was game-tying drive when Brees threw one to the back of the end-zone, think it might have been to Stills, and if Wright would've PLAYED THE BALL, he had an easy pick. But he never turned around, pass did fall incomplete, but it was a missed opportunity.
I must have watched a different game yesterday. Wright looked like crap IMO. That play in the endzone was c()nt hair away from being complete because Wright was NOT playing the ball at all. Didn't even look to be playing the man. Brees put that ball in a crazy small window and he's lucky it wasn't completed for a TD. Not saying Cox would have been any better but lets not sugar coat things. Wright was one lucky play away from being blasted by this board relentlessly.

You're focusing on that one play, and in really watching it there was a small chance it would be completed. Sure, Wright could have played that one better, could have turned around, etc. I'm not focusing on that one play - I'm looking at the entire game, watching #30 Wright playing more than he expected with the Brown injury and playing for the first time in what, a year or so? He was right there on his coverages, looked quick, and stuck his nose in there to make run-support tackles, is what I saw (and, 4 tackles is good for a CB just getting back into playing a game). I'm not trying to sugar-coat anything...sure, he had to get rid of some rust after playing more than expected. I'm looking forward to the rest of the year with him back there. We'll see how it plays out.

and that was a very attainable catch for Stills also.
Yea he didn't look good yesterday. I hope its rust more than anything else.
Meanwhile, Marcus Cooper got torched yesterday in Denver! Lol.

He was certainly targeted...finished pretty strong but thought that long pass was a result of the WR pushing him off to gain that 3-4 yards of separation (no call).

Lets hope so. He looked like s**t.
It's been one game. Let's not overreact.

Still Cooper >>> Wright

Doesn't change the fact that it was a pretty poor game. I don't remember Wright ever even being aware enough to turn around when the ball came his way.

Hopefully he gets back into the rhythm as time goes by.
He doesn't even turn around to locate the ball
