Default Timmons misses!!!!!

I am one of the biggest Timmons supporters, actually getting ready to purchase his Jersey! I think he can be a great addition to the starting lineup. However! he cannont miss plugging a hole like he did last night! He needs to learn how to break down and make the play. Sometimes I feel he's just too fast for himself, he over persues all the time. He takes himself out of plays. I'm glad it's just preseason and there is time for him to correct it. I'm sure he'll be just fine, but damn, that really pissed me off.

Bingo! LeBeau will straighten Timmons out, just like Tomlin straightened Burnett out after his fumbled punt return....that was classic how Tomlin marched right down the sideline to meet Burnett as he came off the field. I would have loved to have been within earshot of that conversation.

Meh, he'll be fine. The kid has too much God-given talent not to end up being successful. Once he learns to trust his instincts and just play, he's going to be great.

Agreed. He'll be fine, he has a lot to learn, but he's also quick enough to hopefully be able to catch up after any moves he makes and gets out of position. Gotta fill those holes.

I said the same thing last night. He does what Troy does sometime. ( remember Troys missed tackle on Edge in the Superbowl?) The missed tackle your refering to is when Timmons got caught looking at the reverse motion in the back field. He was right in the hole but he froze 4 one sec and Hightower made him miss. He is quck as hell but he has to play under control.

It takes time to get acclimated to a Dick LeBeau 3-4 D...that's why NOBODY walks in and starts and dominates.

He'll be fine...and that athleticism will help cover over holes in his game until his head catches up with his body...

Yep... that is the entire thing... it just takes time...


Though I am VERY happy to read a thread where original poster points out something wrong... BUT STILL HAS FAITH IN THE KID.

Wish more could follow suit.

Wait...think about for a second.

If Timmons IS a miss, then he WILL be affordable in a few years and we CAN afford to keep him.

Yay!
