I'm not saying he is the long term answer for that position, and I wouldn't be upset if we drafted another guy even this year. But I don't think that this is a play Rahim Moore messes up all the time, like some are saying.
Med, I get what you are saying by the play call, that should have been quarters deep, instead of the Tampa 2, which essentially just gave Rahim that 1/3 of the field to cover. But I cannot just simply believe that an NFL safety is that dumb.
Personally I thought Rahim made great improvements, and played well for us during the season, he just got beat and looked bad doing it at the most unfortunate time.
Well, one thing we do know, Milus got fired. Sure, there are all sorts of alternate explanations for why that happened, and the Broncos want to send the message that it had nothing to do with just one play, but I don't buy it, frankly. A play that big? A mistake that big, that costs an entire season? It's the football equivalent to being the captain of the Titanic.
