He still deserved to be cut based on how horribly he played that preseason and how horrible he had been to that point in his career. The guy was a shitty tackler, and that has zilch to do with scheme.
In hindsight my ass, some of us said it in real time and got to listen to you slob off Mike Brown and disparage a relative NFL infant for a technique flaw that an idiot head coach drilled into him.
And no, a 24 yr old kid with 2 seasons as a starter and a decent learning curve never 'deserves' to get cut because of a bad pre-season. Especially not so a 2-14 team could keep a ****ing 32 yr old broke-dick safety that was slower than Sammy Knight instead.
You know who sucked? That asshole. The guy that never played another down of NFL football after we cut him. THAT guy sucked.
You were wrong. Just ****ing admit it and move along. You've got the GIFs you slobbered all over before you had any concept of 'selection bias' and worn out old saws regarding missed tackles in the open field from Strong Safeties, as though every SS in the NFL is just making open-field tackles on guys in space every day.
Really, all you have are the preconceived notions you had when you still thought Scott Pioli was a God. Time has shown us that Scott Pioli is a goddamn idiot and Bernard Pollard is a quality starting Strong Safety in this league.
Just walk away...
