      That’s what I thought too until Bruton, Phillips, DHall and Lichtensteiger played snap after snap after snap, and then Ihenacho, Fuller, Blackmon and Long have played better only after injuries enabled them to step onto the field.

      I trust the coaches, don’t get me wrong, but this is very weird, especially in the cases of Ihenacho and Fuller where the difference in play, compared to the players they replaced, is marked.

      With that said, the secondary will now face much tougher tests against the Lions, Bengals, Vikings, Packers, Cowboys and Cardinals over the next couple of months. I hope the secondary continues its strong play! HTTR.

        12thman is right.

        Sometimes you don’t know what you have sitting on the bench until the guy gets enough starts.

    I’m fine with last week’s approach. Ihenacho appears to be a version of the father of the horse collar tackle, Roy Williams — an in the box safety that is a liability when teams spread the field. The problem comes when teams try to run against nickel/dime and Ihenacho is on the bench.

      I’d like to see this as well. Now that Foster has picked up his play pulling him off for Cravens seems to be less of a benefit. Maybe they use this time in concussion protocol to have him read up on the position. Watch some film learn the terminology, assuming he can stand it and the severity of his concussion doesn’t prevent it.

    One plays the run better as one plays the pass better. The team they play and how the game goes should dictate who plays the most. Who ever they put in the game is an upgrade either way.

    From this past weekend’s game, there were some snaps that had both Ihenacho and Whitner on the field at the same time coupled with Blackmon at FS and Garvin at ILB; so, in some instances, they are not mutually exclusive.

    I am proud at the way the D has responded to criticism of their play. They knew they were putting Barry on the hot seat. And also big ups to Scot to for drafting well defensively. I’m going to look for some articles on Ironside, his affect on the game is supposed to be quiet but maybe there’s a reason we haven’t signed the big names yet.

    I think it’s good having both of them. Like having Matt Jones and Fat Rob.

      I agree with this too. Depth. Also not having that steep of a drop off when one rotates out for the other. Try to run that no huddle Mr Rodgers, if that’s your real name.

    Don’t blink now the Redskins are ranked 12th in the NFL Power Rankings. Guess who is ranked 3rd? The Freaking Dallas Cowboyz
