I feel that Michael Griffin is HIGHLY unappreciated in these parts, so I made a thread dedicated to him.

Look at him. He's a Pro Bowl caliber safety, has amazing dreads, and will tear up the league this season.

Sit back, and enjoy the show.


UPDATE

I'll go ahead and track Pro-Bowl Safety Michael Griffin's stats in this thread, since it has already existed.

2012 NFL Season

Tackles: 79
Forced Fumbles: 2
Interceptions: 4
Style: 10/10

GTFO.

Would a Pro Bowl safety have that happen to him? NOPE.

Get that weak photoshop stuff outta here.

You'll notice a distinct lack of photos of him tackling or making a play on the ball. The time of this post is 1:28. I'll be watching for any edits of the OP to add in photoshopped jpg's.

He misses in the open field to much and gets ran over even more. His tackling form is pretty awful and blows alot of assignments in coverage im not a fan. Griffin has really fallen off since 2008 when he was at the peak of his career. You don't see any more of those big hits or big plays that he used to make every week.

In the third pick you have the garbage men. Ruud and Griffin.

I was attempting to highlight how awesome he looks.

If you would like, I can add a "playmaking post" of pictures where he makes plays.

Did have one up there, though.

Stay tuned to 2013.

He, along with his dreads, will be making plays on the field Cool

As you can see, Griffin was in position to make a tackle, but a fellow Titan player actually knocked him over, causing him to lose his balance, and fall.

Unconfirmed that this is Griffin. All we see is a 3 on the jersey. Also no sight of his amazing dreads.

Clearly this is another prime example of Barrett Ruud sucking in coverage. Griffin came all the way over to try and help out, but Ruud's suck was too much, and a completion was made. With a solid McCarthy in the middle, this would result in the quarterback throwing further, and Griffin laying out the receiver with a bone jarring hit. Or a pick six.

Please, do so. I'm highly interested in seeing ONE picture of him looking bad.

Last year Griffin was solid in coverage(not horrible but not great) but he was terrible at tackling. I don't care who you are, an NFL safety should at least slow a RB down for the rest of the defense to help make the tackle but he couldn't do it. I am holding out hope for him this season though. Gray has been speaking highly of him saying he's becoming a leader. If he can get back to his 07-08 level, this D can be scary. He needed to quit worrying about his shoulder. It seems ever since that injury, he's went downhill. Get better in coverage and learn to tackle and make plays, he can be an elite safety again Pray

I honestly think Griff will step up this year and play at a probowl level. 6 picks.

Lmao. I enjoyed your analysis of the pics. Thanks for the laugh Laughing

I do agree that his dreads are indeed awesome, but there is no denying that his play has significantly dropped off since 2008. His coverage may have improved a bit last year, but his tackling is absolutely dreadful.

Im hoping he pulls it together because we've all seen that he can be a probowl caliber safety, but if he continues to tackle the way he does I would have no problem letting him walk after this season.

Praising Griffin for coverage would be like praising Amano for pass protection. Yea they're both competent at times, but it doesn't cover up several other glaring deficiencies in their overall game. Both players should have been vanquished this off-season. Both players are mashed potato soft. But both players are being given redemption seasons... for whatever reason.


We'll see... maybe mandatory thigh, hip and knee pads will turn Griff back into the physical. hard hitting, ball hawk he was his 1st 2 years... but probably not.
