He had a really good season in 05 as our #1 CB, check the stats like 70+ tackles, 4 picks, 19 defended passes. Plus he is fast enough in situations if a WR gets a step on him he can recover. Walt can't recover, if a WR gets a step then it's over, same story when he was in Washington. Not saying Walt isn't good but he just needs help over the top or to be on the slowest WR.sfsfsfgiants wrote:JReed23 wrote:Wow, whats wrong w/ spencer?

I would rather see Harralson, but it looks like we are going to go with Navies.
I dont want to see the 3-3-5 because I hate Shawntae Spencer.
Regardless of what the "All Knowing" ESPN commentators say, I'm not sure well see all that much Navies. I could be wrong but I have a feeling that we'll see a lot of different fronts.
I hate Shawntae because he gets burned more than Walt. He is a guy that gets burned two or three times a game. Sometimes they are imcomplete passes, and sometimes they are deep bombs for touchdowns, but regardless, he gets burned too much. Walt doesnt get burned that much, and he can make a play with his hands, which is something Spencer cant do. Walt is an All-Pro, while Spencer hasnt been any more than a nickleback. I love him as a nickleback, but if we are relying on him to be more than that, we will be in trouble.
The 3-3-5 wont work because teams will run silly on us, anyway.
Obviously no team would come out w/ a 3-3-5 against a 2 WR or running package, I wasn't saying that. But in some cases where we'd normally come out in a 3-4-4 against a 3 WR set (because Lawson can cover or help cover most slot WRs), we'll just throw in that extra DB.
