Maybe he would get burned badly a few times, everyone does, but Benny will make some plays for ya. They must keep this kid.

Huard should loose out to Killian and Tynes should not be allowed to kick anymore, just go for it on fourth down.

Benny at #2 CB? I dunno. I like the guy, but he is only 5'9". How about we put him at safety instead of Wesley. Sapp appears to excel in space let him wander the feild with his youth and speed.

Huard should loose out to Killian and Tynes should not be allowed to kick anymore, just go for it on fourth down.

And just go for 2 after touchdowns. Hell yea, I like this idea :clap: ROFL

I keep telling everybody that he's eventually going to take Warfields job away from him. But does anybody listen?? Nooooooooooooooooooo. :harumph:

Sapp is good. The kid can hit. Also I remember when he played for UNI against SMS, first play of the game interceptation for a touchdown.

Wouldn't surprise me if he "eventually" took Warfield's job. Or Surtain's, for that matter. They're both 29 years old. Sapp's only, what, 24. Wouldn't shock me if he's a starter 3 or 4 years from now. Although, honestly, I'm still not particularly comfortable with the idea of a 5'8 or 5'9 starter, with receivers getting closer and closer to 6'6 every year. But, hell, as a nickelback, he's basically a starter already, as much as we play nickel, dime and quarter.

NFL Network showed very little of the game in their "No Huddle" while the Chiefs starters were in last night, so I didn't get to see Wesley.

But I was not impressed with his effort in the first game, and I don't recall his name being mentioned by Mitch or Lenny last night.

Would I be correct in speculating that his performance last night was every bit as lackluster as the first game?

Sapp taking Surtains spot?? Lets not get carried away. I agree he has some talent, but needs a lot of work on his coverage skills. He bites on the fake too much and needs to look back at the QB more-something Bartee had problems with. He just needs more time and I think he will be pretty descent.

Unless you're responding to Keg's post, the spot we are discussing is McPassOn's.

The only weakness I see in Sapp's game right now is when he has to cover receivers. He's good at making tackles on running plays, and he is good at blitzing on passing plays.

It seems like Gunther thinks the same way. I'd have to watch the game again to be sure, but it seemed like Sapp was blitzing an awful lot. Maybe we can be creative and kind of mask the fact that he isn't a great cover corner by blitzing, rotating safeties over to help, etc.

Covering receivers is kind of an important aspect of corner play, or so I'd heard.

The question is, is he even worse than McPassOn?

And they have been pretty effective from the blindside.

I'd say that's the only thing Sapp has done well so far. Blitzing.

I'm not saying he can't cover, but so far we've seen little to show whether he can or can't. After watching McCleon's guys open by 10 yards all night, I'm ready to try anything.
