Special note, Jimmy Wilson, who I thought had a great game against Atlanta was a disappointment against Carolina. Wilson is no longer being asked to play Safety, apparently Jeff and Tony have requested that he be moved to Cornerback….why? I have no idea. Maybe Yeremiah Bell has found the fountain of youth.
I’m not the only one that saw the decline in Wilson:
Two players who excelled against the Falcons took a step back against Carolina. Jimmy Wilson was just okay, and AJ Edds took a lot of false steps. Wilson allowed a 35-yard reception to David Clowney, but it was called back because of an illegal formation penalty. But Wilson still allowed it….

Back to the Free Safety position, Tony wishes that he could have a player that has the traits of both players. According to Tony, Jones has a nose for the ball. Reading the play and reacting. This was evident against the Titans last year, where all of us had a chance to see what Jones could bring to the table. However, I haven’t seen it. I don’t know where all this nose for the ball talk is coming from. The two games we have played this season, I didn’t see Jones make a noteworthy play.
Clemons…My momma said, you don’t have anything nice to say about someone, don’t say anything at all. Why he continues to implement his same flaws over and over again makes no sense to me. Just watch the highlights again from the Carolina game. The screen pass to Sutton from Newton….watch what Clemons does…he doesn’t know how to tackle in the NFL. You can’t tackle in the NFL by the shoulder pads!
Since our Free Safety has to be the last line of defense, I can’t and don’t want to think about Clemons back there. We have our FS playing the Robber Technique in Nolan’s 3-4 D, but if Clemons starts we are going to be robbed of victories. It’s harsh, but the truth. Therefore, I still wish we signed a veteran FS (OJ Atogwe, E. Weddle, Q. Mickell G. Wilson) but I am now hoping Jones shows me something. The winner will be Rashad Jones.
