I’ve never seen him mentioned by anyone as a top 5. It’s always the big names who are mostly overrated

The thing is will he cover Julio for 60 min by himself without help? Nobody ever does. If he can do that it will be a tough day. 

Yes sir. Absolutely. He will have help at times on the back end and the front. The front coming in the form of pressure thru the A gap which Zimmer loves to do.

Rhodes regressed quite a bit last year.  He was targeted 3rd most vs top receivers and allowed 62% completion rate.  Was it nagging injuries or age finally catching up?  

My bet is Julio will receive bracket coverage this time around.

He did last time we played too. Nobody has covered Julio for 60 minutes with no help. There’s always bracket coverage in zone or help over top in man. I didn’t realize he was attacked like that last season tho.

How old is he? He 29 or 30?

If he does its only because the ball going elsewhere. Not because he's "blanketed" Take out the teams best cb, isolate him, and attack with the litany of other weapons elsewhere. Minnesota has a good defense but they are going to need us to shoot ourselves with penalties to win. I think our defense is good enough to force Minn to attem of several f.g. Offensive penalties could easily do the same to us.  I predict a 17-16 win for us.

Everything I see says he allowed a 57% catch rate, where did you see 62%?
