    While I don't disagree with the issue he mentions I find it to be sort of ironic that he focuses on two players who had major issues with hustle and following instructions who were removed either last season or this season and on a play that was the start of the season. He also doesn't mention Darrell Stuckey who could assist in the pass defense as he provides a more athletic and effective (hopefully) option alongside Eric Weddle

    When was Cromartie ever our top corner back?

    I disagree. The author gave far too much credit to Cromartie, who was not a reliable defender even in pass protection, ditto to Eric Weddle. Maybe linebackers could be utilized better in a pass defense scheme but c'mon now, they all don't have "Urlacher" on their backs now do they?

    I agree, I felt the rest of the article was moot after that.
