Munchak doesn't have to prove anything to anyone about a pure special teams player by putting him in.

If he hasn't gotten playing time yet.. there is a good reason.


Agreed. He was very raw coming out of college. He was a project. He's had a full 2 seasons. Let's see if be can secure a spot ahead of Sensabaugh next season. I still think we should of experimented with him at safety.

This is true but I feel that when a game is out of hand, it is harmless to put in a guy with raw talent and see how he can play.

Campbell was getting major praise all offseason and gets a chance to play against Seattle in the first preseason game. He gave up a TD to Braylon Edwards on a real nice pass and catch. Big whoop. He wasn't seen on the outside again for pretty much the rest of the season.

I think the guy deserves a bigger shot than what he was given. Especially when Ryan Mouton was given opportunity after opportunity to prove how incompetent he is.


Excellently put! Those were my same thoughts on the matter as well. Not sure what the so-called "reason" is for not giving him more PT is, but I would like to see what he can do in a real game. Practice is fine for what it is. You can be the greatest player in the league in practice, but the real measure of a player shows when the lights go on and you're not playing against your own teammates.

Another thing that need to be understood is Verner, Sensabaugh and Mouton are all NB corners, not true outside CBs. Verner has done a respectable job on the outside at the #2 spot, but I can't stress enough that he needs to be moved back to his natural NB spot full-time. The idea is to put him back into a position to where he can make better reads on the plays and break them down faster instead of having him being locked up covering one guy.

Verner would be a stud playing in the NB position when we are running with 5 DBs. He breakdowns plays so quickly and if we allowed him to play like we did Finny 2 years ago I believe that he would do a great job.

Verner IS a really nice corner on the outside, though...especially on short routes and comebacks. Part of me really wonders how smart it would be to bring him in only when we are running nickel. I suppose the best option would be to only play Campbell on the outside in nickel and move Verner inside...then keep the McCourty/Verner combo when we are in base.
