Am I the only one who thought Cro had a good game?

    Just wondering. I thought his coverage was pretty decent and the pass interference call was a bad one.

    To put it mildly, that PI on Cro was bullshit.

    Cro has played like ****. Loads of talent but no football brains - yet. I do not expect **** from him for another year at least. The dude is just too green and has not seen enough snaps to have that instinct to know where to be and how to jump a route.

    Maybe if he watches Jammer a little more he will learn when to jump a route. (thats sarcasm for you sarcasmically challenged folks)

    I don't care if he gets burned a few times, just put him in man. I would take Elvis Patterson over Jammer at this point. The 15 yard cushion on Moss was the last straw for me. Moss is not as fast as he was when he was in Minnesota. To give that dude fair catches all day long for 8 yards is inexcusable. I see post after post on this site bagging on norv and phillip etc. Why am I the only one that is willing to admit that Jammer is the weakest link?

    BTW I'm drunk as F so i have more to say

    We havn't had a decent corner since Gill Byrd.

    Put Cro and Weddle at corner and send jammer and shithead headslam to the raiders for a couple of draft picks.

    Goddam I can't wait till tommorow, Farve is going to get mangled and retire afterword.

    Also BTW: **** OJ

    Good! Finally someone who knows coverage calls and who's in the right place and who's not.

    Would you then explain which coverages you thought he did well in, and if he was able to cover for someone who might have blown it a couple times?

    We all know if was a bad cal and he had good coverage on THAT PLAY. Its the other plays where he hasnt that bothers me. One good play doesnt mean he had a good game. He hasnt played well since August of this year when he is supposed to be getting better.

    Agreed.

    Cro is indecisive and on that one play he had played it about as good as it gets but you are right, it was ONE play. It was the rest of the times I am wondering what the hell the dude is watching. I see he has the skills. He needs a shitload of reps and situations before he will bust out. I had hoped he would contribute more but after watching 6 games this year, it is not going to happen right away.

    Right now the guy is still relying on his physical skills. His mental game is not developing as well as I had hoped:no:

    Cound not agree more. He's shown me enough of ability to keep up with a flanker, along with his physical attributes to keep my interest, he's shown enough promise to stick around and enough boneheaded mistakes to prove he's inexperienced.

    That PI call was total bullshit, great coverage, but what do you expect an official to do when he see's a chargers uniform correctly covering a reciever, I'd throw the flag out of shock.:lol:

    Hey maybe I am reaching but I am just looking for a little positive news in the secondary. The play right after PI call he covered well also. Overall, didn't see too many balls go his way but don't remember him getting clearly beat either. By our secondary standards, that is a good game. Lets get him those reps.

    What concerns me is, I always thought that those instincts were in-born, either you have it or you don't. Jammer has had 6 years to "get it", and we're still waiting.

    I'm tired of burning high draft picks on CB's. We need to invest in a DB who already possesses the ball skills, and has proven it at the NFL level.

    Even if it's a second-tier guy, like Dallas getting Anthony Henry in free agency a few years ago. My patience is running very thin.
