The praise continues!!!
How do we know that 92s return isn't partly responsible for Timmons performance?
3 tackles against Oakland and beaten badly by a no name TE for a critical 1st
Down. Let's hold off on sending Timmons to canton for at least a couple more games.
I will agree with Dubs on this one. I have always seen the talent in Timmons. The problem is he has been a man without a true position. His strength? Gettin after it. It's not run support...not pass coverage (though he does both above average)...it's being unleashed to wreck things. He is the best at it since Troy. Why do we not know this? Because he is rarely used as such. When he is...you see what happens. I agree...build a D around Timmons ability to create havoc....let him free lance.
With your love for the 4-3, you should know that pass-rushers are hit or miss. All of them - Jared Allen, Peppers, Pierre Paul, will have games where the do not appear on the stat sheet at all or only have a tackle or two. Woodley is a bit inconsistent, and I'd like to see him be more consistent, but I realize that is the nature of being a guy who is paid to rush the passer.
As for James and Troy, when they are on the field, they absolutely impact the game. Health and ability are two different things. I think Harrison's presence probably freed up Timmons a bit.
I'd love for Timmons to prove me wrong. In 2010, I thought that he had. Last year, there were the excuses that he was out of position. This year, I'm not sure what the excuse was for the first three games.
He played great against the Eagles, no question. I'd like to see him continue to play at that level.
Finally, as to "consistently dominant" play - it's like pornography. You know it when you see it.
