      i’m not saying he is the best fs ever and i’m not saying he is underrated. however, you don’t say that the 2nd leading tackler of ALL DB (cb + fs + ss) in the league is “overrated”. want to compare him to earl thomas? weddle does have 3 less picks which is important, but has 2 more fumble recoveries, 2 more passes defend and almost 10 more tackles… not to mention the intangibles. scheme matters in the numbers game- weddle is doing just fine.

      • joerockt

        Dude, a high number of tackles for a FS is not a good thing. And when he’s making a “tackle” its either from behind or he getting trucked from the front. No one fears him. I was a fan, but after this season the guy is expendable.

        • davacho

          lmao- so there are 32 other FS in the league that are better than weddle? that would make him expendable right? name 3.

          • joerockt

            Define what you think “Better” is. No one fears the name Weddle. Sorry you have a man crush on the guy, but he’s not the hard hitting FS we need.

          • davacho

            why should i define what “better” is? you’re the one who implied there were many safeties who were better (since he is “expendable”)… still waiting on that list.

          • joerockt

            Its what you interpreted, but that’s not what I implied as I don’t know what your definition of “better” is. Besides, not really comparing him to anyone else, only my observations about his play, which is non physical, weak tackling.

            Here’s an example of Weddle making a “tackle”:

          • davacho

            what were you implying when you said he is expendable? oh, and there’s about a few hundred examples of weddle playing smart heads up football with sure tackling… really?

          • davacho

            you can’t deny that he’s a badass : )

          • joerockt

            LOL, ok yea ya got me there cause I freaking love SOA =]

          • joerockt

            Oh, and here’s the most famous truck of them all:

            Shall I continue?

          • davacho

            you shall continue… got 100 good plays for every bad one you got. let’s just get back to the beginning… you said expendable. no matter how you slice and dice it- that means you think there are better safeties out there… if not, then your comment is pointless and is more about the current state of safeties in this league than eric weddle. i’m growing tired of your inability to back up your original comment…

          • joerockt

            I don’t have to back up jack shit. Its my opinion base upon my observations. I’d take any other hard hitting safety over that guy. He sucks, plan and simple.

          • davacho

            LMAO- you must have grown up on a different planet then… if you can’t back it up, then simmer down son!

      • Austin Carter

        If you truly are a fan of the game you would realize the weddle is terrible cover fs! He has been torched numerous times this year! Both turnovers he had last game were garbage! The int against dalton was a bad throw and the fumble rolled into his hands! A majority of his turnovers r in either garbage time or were terrible throws! He is scared of contact(I.e. Him back peddling to make tackles instead of filing the hole)! He is a GOOD Fs but not a GREAT Fs

        • davacho

          i love it when people qualify a statement with “if you truly are a fan…” – like, i must not be a fan because my opinion differs from yours?! too good… that is all. : )

          • Austin Carter

            When was the last time he has heads game changing int or even a game saving pass deflection! He is too small to cover TE and to slow to cover WR! He is a good player but great player? For being the leader of the secondary he sure is doing a terrible job with that group this year! Worst secondary in the league but td okay we have weddle!
