Earl Thomas vs Eric Berry
I am curious as to who CP thinks is the better safety. I remember Mayock pimping Thomas over Berry at the draft and I'm not so sure he was wrong. What say you?

Right now, Thomas.

I need another year...not fair because of the 2011 berry injury

AussieChiefsFan 12-23-2012 07:44 PM

Id say Berry

Mr. Laz 12-23-2012 07:45 PM

Berry's coverage skills looked much better today

If he improves in coverage then he's a beast so i don't really care about Thomas

I still would like to see how Berry would do at Free Safety ... with his speed and range it could be awesome.

Earl didn't blow out his knee from a POS cheap shot.

threebag02 12-23-2012 07:45 PM

I wanted either or. I was more familiar with Thomas being a Big 12er. I just wish Pioli never had control of shit.

KCrockaholic 12-23-2012 07:51 PM

I think Thomas offers more in coverage, and I think he matches up well against WR's. He's a little faster. But Berry is dominant in the run game. He's really one of the best run stuffing safeties in the league. But right now, I have to give the edge to Thomas.

Ace Gunner 12-23-2012 07:52 PM

they are both good safeties who are different kind of players. Berry had the season lost, so it's not real good to compare these players. Berry has more range because he's taller/longer arms whereas Thomas is a compact guy.

I feel like Thomas is better against the pass while Berry is better against the run. Then again, its tough to compare because they're playing two totally different positions. Thomas doesn't get put in man coverage nearly as much as Berry; he plays more of the centerfielder role. Also, maybe Berry shines more against the run because he's often in the box.

I don't know; it's tough to say really. I'd like to see Berry at FS before I could make a proper diagnosis.

Obviously, right now, Thomas would appear to be playing better to a casual fan though. He plays on the better team, with the better defense, and better secondary. He's surrounded by good-great players on defense, particularly in the secondary.

Thomas so far.

WildTurkey 12-23-2012 07:53 PM

Berry looked to be returning to 2010 form today. He was all over the field and looked good in coverage especially when matched up with Reggie Wayne

AussieChiefsFan 12-23-2012 07:56 PM

Yea IMO his bad early games this year were all about the ACL. He's much improved recently.

RunKC 12-23-2012 08:08 PM

Right now Earl Thomas, but man Pete Carroll did a great job getting Kam Chancellor to be the big run stuffing SS.

With we had had someone who could draft like them.

mcaj22 12-23-2012 08:13 PM

Kam Chancellor, the guy we should have drafted who played with Flowers in college

but ya know

Pioli the idiot
