Serious Question. I've already expressed how I'm not a fan of his. Give me your opinions on him.

Aside from his INT on Monday night, I have yet to see him make a play that would make him a starter in this league. As a deep safety, it seems as if he's always late to the ball, or can't diagnose plays fast enough. And don't let me forget about his tackling. In the past 2 games I have yet to see him wrap one guy up and bring him down. If he's going to be our last line of defense he needs to be a solid tackler. Every hit he goes for he either misses or goes for the big hit and whiffs. Am I just being too hard on this guy? Because he seriously looks BAD out there.

I thought Huff's position last year is one of the hardest to play in the NFL? And now we go and give that position to a guy we got on the waiver wire who we didn't even have in the off-season?

Why do we use so many freaking safeties? Even when huff was healthy Giordano and Boyd were on the field atthe same time.

Because we have no depth there. When Huff was healthy, he was sliding to NB with Giordano coming in at FS. And Boyd was filling in for Mitchell and had to play somewhat of a different role this week because Huff was out.

Matt broke his hand they put a cast on it he came into the game. Who's supposed too replace him seeing no DVD, CJ, Eugene, and Michael Huff. There's a reason we brought this practice squad player up because we was thin at depth. Matt doing feel in work this week.

Bush injured himself as well.

Heyer, Reece and Murphy didn't practice.

To people saying he'll be replaced by Huff - Huff's been playing at nickel corner for us. In fact I'm not sure if he's played safety at all. My only hope is this is Mitchell's job and he's a stop gap for the time being.

It was hard for us to take him out of the game because we were missing some guys back there. Huff has been banged up, Mitchell has been out. Im sure we will see less of him as the season goes on. I know Huff slides to CB in the nickle package, but remember they were running with Mitchell and Branch at S at times, and that sounds better then Giordono being back there. Branch has actually been pretty decent in coverage this season imo.

His wife was my High School basketball coach's sister. That's all I will say about him other than he came to a few of our games. Cool guy, but should only play Special Teams.

He's playing a near impossible position to play in Al's scheme. Even though hs tackling wasn't any good in Buffalo, the guys in a tough spot, especially from mainly being a special teamer.
