Default Wtf is up with Shazier

For the past two weeks the announcers have claimed that "Shazier will be healthy and on the field" but for the past 2 weeks its been #51

I have a theory, I think he's an alien and has beamed back to the mothership and will return to make the saving play of the Superbowl.

I get what he's saying, but we're 24th in the NFL in points allowed. I don't think ANYONE on the defense has been stellar, so there's always room for improvement. They need to figure out a couple packages in which Shazier's speed could help. And if you're not gonna play him on defense, stick him on special teams. A guy with his size and speed should be a good gunner. And please don't tell me about the risks of injury on special teams, you can't treat him like a China Doll.

It is like I said when everyone was talking about all of our injured guys coming back. Not a single one of them is an improvement on the person replacing them. Or at least not a big enough improvement. With the time Shazier has missed he could end up actually being worse at this point and you don't want that when your team has a chance at the playoffs and a playoff run.

The same goes for Jarvis Jones. When Harrison is back you will have 2 OLB's (Moats and Harrison) who have bigger impacts on the game than Jones has.

Jones and Shazier are likely our future, but right now I could see both of them finishing the season as healthy backups. And in a way that is exciting because it is like the Steelers when they were great. Keep the vets in and ballin and let the young guys absorb it all.

Of course you never know. Maybe Shazier starts next week and gets the majority of the snaps.

Jarvis didn't play that many snaps. He needs to be eased in. Shazier on the other hand I don't think the coaching staff trust yet. While his speed will mask some of his deficiencies, I don't think he's 100% to even utilize it properly.

We've been getting serviceable play out of the Spence/Williams tandem, although I thought we'd see Williams on the run downs and Spence playing the passing downs.
