Kazee’s play last night


Recommended Posts

Defense as a whole was rock solid until we started that bull crap prevent defense Quinn loves so much.

 

almost cost us the game too. I don’t understand why any coach would ever coach his team to let up and play safe/scared when that is t what put them ahead in the first place.

He's playing a new position - it was never going to be a seamless transition

He's not. He's playing his original position. He was drafted to play Nickle. He ended up at Safety due to injuries.

 

I caught flack for saying that Kazee was overrated. Sure, he got INTs last year, but honestly, he was garbage. The picks covered up a lot of flaws...

Garbage? Overated maybe (people love turnovers) but not garbage.

Was he drafted to play nickel? I know he played nickel in college but his first 2 years in the league he's been the backup FS. Regardless it's a transition from where he was comfortable last year.

False, Kazee was playing safety before anyone got hurt.

I dont know if its here to stay but the defense held the Eagles to less than 3 yards per carry and held the passing game to less than 5.5 yards per attempt. 

That was a very good defensive performance. If we get there every week by giving up lots of cushion or whatever, I'm totally fine with it. 

Agreed.   That is about as good as you can hope against a good team.  Sure, it can always be better but a good enough effort to win most games if our offense is playing well.

Kazee was a CB in College and Drafted specifically to compete with Poole... Quinn wanted him to play Nickle and back-up at Safety...

 

Quote

When Kazee joined the Falcons, the coaches had plans to play him at both nickel back and free safety after he played primarily outside at right cornerback in college.

He was drafted to compete with Poole and to add depth at Safety. He was a CB in college.

 

Watch the games last year and you'll see his missed tackles, blown coverage, and him just getting ran over. Now, it wasn't *all* his fault, some was scheme.

That’s like saying rico could seamlessly play nickel. Guy was drafted to play nickel but is a much better fs.

same might be true for kazee.

I didn't say that at all. The poster I commented on said that he was moving to a new position, Nickel. I simply stated that wasn't true. Kazee has played Nickle, and was actually drafted to do just that...

 

 

And lets not compare Rico to Kazee. Rico is by far a better player than Kazee. Not safety, player. I still get a kick out of all you that suggested we should keep Kazee ahead of Rico at FS...

He played nickel and safety. He was getting nickel snaps last year before the injury to Rico.

Rico didn’t even make the team his first year. He developed. I’m all for Rico being our safety. I’m simply saying playing safety and nickel are completely different. I used Rico as an example.

Give me a freaking break. Dude is a baller and makes a ton of plays man.  It’s this false narrative that some of y’all keep trying to pass on that just stinks. Sure he got played some but so did everyone!  

He made tons of plays & stops. C’mon man.
