Against future MVP Jameis Winston.... let the media tell it

@Sui_Generis I think he'll shadow Amari tomorrow. At least some. That offense can stagnate without Amari. The key is the rest of the defense bottling up the running game and Alford having his head on straight and covering Crabtree. Make Clive Walford and Andre Holmes beat you. 

Not that it's directly correlated, but every time the Raiders lost last year, Amari was kept in check except against the Packers. Clearly, if you want to win, keep Amari in check. Saints had Delvin Breaux until they didn't. Falcons have Trufant.

I don't understand why he doesn't shadow the other teams #1 WR. Those are good numbers but they don't tell the whole story.

He is not always going up against the other  teams best. Many times he is up against the other teams #2 or lower.

 

lots of defenses don t shadow the #1.

There's thousands of posters here. Part of the "ya'll" can say he's overrated and the other "ya'lls" can say he's underrated.

I think there's a general consensus around the league about Trufant and his abilities.I mean when a guy like Richard Sherman comes out and praises the above I think that's the most telling type comments you listen to.Itpretty much trumps what posters say.

Much like what Jerry Rice said about Julio awhile a go now.It's pretty much the samething.
