Haven’t heard much about CB Oliver......which is exactly what I was hoping at this point

I’ve been so impressed with the play of our DL, I totally forgot about how I planned on watching Oliver closely to see how he was going to hold up as a starter at CB.

And it just occurred to me, I haven’t even heard his name mentioned or seen much of anything out of him, which is exactly what I was hoping would be the case at this point in preseason.

I need to go back and watch some snaps, but the fact he’s been so quiet must mean the ball isn’t being thrown to his side with a lot of success so far.

Has anyone been keying in on his play?

Only thing I do know:

People thought Oliver was still wearing his old number. So, they blamed him for Sheffield getting beat a couple times by the Dolphins Preston Williams.

Otherwise, only boundary CB getting picked on this preseason has been Ryan Neal afaik.

Was beat on a back shoulder throw last game and got stiff armed pretty good but pretty decent preseason.nothing to cry about

Back shoulder is the hardest pass to defend and never seen a defensive player that never met a good stiff arm at least once lol.

When? Besides that pass interference where was he lit up? 

Go watch the tapes. And after you do, post up any plays he made. Was my number one concern comin in. Still is. Even more than the Italian Iceberg. QBs will be gunning for him. Dimi better go find another Foxy/Asante/BWill type.

I am an Oliver fan but I'm not super confident in him.  Trufant can be up and down but has looked mostly good this preseason.  Oliver has not been "bad" but he has not been "good" either.  My issues with Oliver have been the same since last season...physicality.  In fact what shocked me so much about Tru's play wasn't just good technique, but it was hustle and physicality that I have not seen from him a lot.   Oliver needs that.

RSo far, it appears he’s only given up one play of note, an over the shoulder pass. Other than that, a PI.  (Stiff arm was in running game and a good play by the RB)

To be completely honest with everyone, the only play that concerns me going into season is the PI. Not because it happened once, just want to make sure it doesn’t become a habit.

The secondary was my biggest question mark of the defense coming into the preseason (I felt really good about our DL) . My question mark with Oliver wasnt talent.....he has that, simply was hoping he could handle the starting role. Looks like he’s going to be fine. He’s a better fit than Alford for DQs defense.

Why don’t you do the same since you made the initial claim that he’s been getting lit up?

Because I'm about to get on a plane. But make no mistake about it he's made no plays this preseason and given up at least two. You live on this board and seem to have more time to burn. If so, burn it. If not, this is an A-B conversation. C your way out of it.

Lol you still mad about getting owned last week huh. Funny how you used the A-B conversation pun. You C your way into conversations all the time. You just have a habit of making yourself look foolish in the process. Consistency is key

Buddy played in Game 1, 2 and 3. A total of 69 snaps. Basically the equivalent of a full game. No plays made at all. Zero. Picked up a PI penalty in Game 1. Racked up one tackle and one assist on the two longest plays allowed in Game 2. Didn't do jack in Game 3. Aint jammin worth a dam and still suffering from the Crisp Houston no neck syndrome. His 4.5 speed is very apparent.

Pretty much a continuation of his rookie season. Made one play back then and yall boys still got your necks wrapped around his scrotum. And now you've gone and put the Gazoo Jinx on him. You got the Midas touch bro. Everything you touch turns into a muffler. I think he's primed for an as beatin. You, Fat, YoBoi and Troff think he's the answer to our 2019 RCB position. OK. Got it.
