Default The Rahim Moore poll

I know most of us aren't happy with the guy right now. I feel like this could be a breakout season for him. I think he could have a big game in a week or two, but if he continues to not make a tackle or stick when we need it, and drop ints, JDR and Fox need to get someone on the field that is hungry and will make a play or two. And we all know that QC is capable of at least making an int when we he gets an opportunity.

The fact that he is around the ball and close to making a play is encouraging, he has been solid in run support as well, hes bigger than last year his tackling is 10x better than it was last year.

However he does need to step it up and make the play when its there hopefully he will, I am not ready to cast him aside just yet at times I think his potential is too much to give up on I do beleive he has the chance to develop into a true ball hawk safety.

The wild card on this is that I also like Quinton Carter a lot and hes too talented to be sitting on the bench, either Moore or Adams will lose their job sometime this season thanks to Carter.

Adams was solid in game 1 but in game 2 he didn't really flash for me.

We aren't getting beat deep as long as this isn't happening the safeties can't be that bad.

Yes. The improvement is there. I think he has the ability to be the man too, but here we have a guy that was solid enough towards the end of last season sitting on the bench that is better than him. I'm convinced that QC catches at least 1 of those picks, just based on what I saw from him last season.

Adams isn't great, but he seems to have pretty good instinct and plays with some heart.

True that! Too many nightmares in years past of our safetys getting beat deep. It is looking better at the back end.

He's almost always near the ball. He has made some pretty nice tackles too.

Sometimes people seem to think that the coaches have 'hard-on' for a player who shouldn't really be playing...but usually what's happening in that instance is that they are doing the small things right and just missing or screwing up the odd big play once in a while that gets everybody's back up.

I think that's what's happening here. This coaching staff seems to have established that it knows defense better than the people on the orangemane do (unlike the previous defensive staff....). I'm prepared to believe that they know their stuff and arre keeping a guy in there out of merit rather than some unfathomable preference....

yes they did invest a 2nd round pick in him so maybe they give him more of a chance than he might otherwise get, but they sat him last year, and if he was really blowing chunks out thee I'm sure they woudl sit him again in a heartbeat

Moore is currently leagues ahead of where he was last season. He is a MUCH improved tackler. He is really only a half step away from making a bunch of huge plays. He can closes that gap with more experience and increased confidence. Once that happens he can really be a great safety.

Remember, this is only his second year. Most safeties take at least a couple of years to start breaking out. Just look at Brandon Browner. That guy is turning into a star safety for the seahawks in his 7th year in the NFL. Too bad we didnt have more patience with him.

I've been pleasantly surprised/impressed with Moore so far this season. However, M Adams....dreadful.

I do not see the problem others do. Maybe I am just not noticing. I think he plays fast. I think he is out of position but I like him. I do not see why he would be benched in favor of Leonhard??

THIS! But I think that Brandon Browner is a corner not a safety.

I think people are on Moore case to much, and Mike Adams wasn't lights out yesterday either. Nobody is mentioning the missed tackle on 3rd and goal on Micheal Turner to stuff him from getting the touchdown (I think Moore stuff Turner on time on a third down play from a screen). It's like his 4th or 5th start. He is much improved in his tackling and he's around the ball which is a REAL big improvement in one year. How much more growth can you get in just one year? Carter is another good young safety (who's best at strong not free like Moore) but give the guy some time to grow and get better.

Maybe it takes a few years to get rid of that UCLA stink. He learned to tackle real well playing there.

I would like to see him play at least another 6-8 games before I make a judgement on him. We are talking a young guy who has only had 1 training camp and offseason and a few pro games to his name. He has clearly improved his tackling and his run support, maybe he is miscast as a FS and should move to SS.

Not impressed with Moore and Adams but, maybe down the road they will get better. Right now our S play sucks and needs to get better. Better S play we win monday night imo.

He just needs to finish plays. If he comes down with 1or 2 picks that hit him in the hands the last two weeks this isn't even mentioned. He has improved a lot over last season.

I'm not saying play him just because he has improved. But don't replace him just because of a couple mental errors especially if there isn't anything better behind him

This. In each game, he's been this close to getting an INT.....one should've been a pick 6.

I don't think anyone is advocating that we bench him right now. However if we are going to throw a run stopper who is a step slow in coverage out there why not Leonhard? I'm hoping he starts to polish his instinctsabit more because physically he has all the tools. . I have a feeling the a Pats game is going to get ugly forhin though
