Anyone Still wants to keep Oliver?

Oliver has played less than 10 games in the league.  Let him grow a little.  He has moments where he shines, more so when he’s playing press coverage than when he’s not.  

Quinn’s defense doesn’t utilize players the right way.  Oliver was a press man corner in college yet Quinn plays him 6-8 yards off the ball.

Oliver did play a lot of press coverage today. In each of those TDs scored on him was in man to man! Problem is he is not as good at it as they thought!

Kazee, Campbell, Vic all out there looking bad.

Not just Oliver.

Issue is coaching. Players out there worried about defending run on the edge and blowing coverage or closing to tackle the checkdown.

Missed Neal in the 2nd half...and Grady on that final drive...

I thought Beasley had a pretty **** good game

every time I saw Kemal Ishmael in he looked horrid. We just don’t seem to have DB depth. And he is looking larger and slower every season. Not really sure why he’s still around. I liked him at times but what is his role?

He gained weight to play LB, had him switch back to Safety after an early Safety injury.

The tape never lies...

From PFF:

"Isaiah Oliver continues to improve. He enjoyed another memorable game against Indianapolis. Oliver made an impressive pass deflection against one red-zone throw, denying TY Hilton a likely touchdown. He also had excellent coverage on a couple of other plays, forcing Brissett to try to time back-shoulder throws that fell incomplete. Atlanta has excellent depth in the secondary, and they appear to have found a cornerstone opposite Desmond Trufant in the Colorado product. "

You didn't see Oliver do anything his rookie season, what reason did you believe that he could be a servicable starter this year? In one of the forum threads in the offseason asking which positions are you most concerned about, I said it was DB and especially Oliver's position. Now teams will just pick on him all year because he's going to hold or do a pass interference.

This sounds awfully familiar to a corner who used to play on this team opposite Trufant....
