Default James Farrior has become worthless to this defense

This better be the last season that Lebeau and Tomlin try to ride this guy. I think it is because alot of $$$ has to be cut to sign Wallace. I'm sick of seeing Farrior trailing someone coming out of the backfield for big yardage. It's become an embarassment.

Also, William Gay's exposure starts this Sunday. Don't like him and as usual Tomlin tries to hide a player's ineptitude within the system until an opponent exposes his ass. This week I say Gay gets exposed. I hope he prove's me wrong.

If Gay struggles. then Lewis will take his spot. Farrior vs any RB or TE will get burned, like in the Houston game. If Timmons could of gotten more pressure on that 70 yrd TD, then that pass wouldn't have gone to the house.

Troy fell on that play as well. He played unusually bad for the first time this season.

As for Farrior, I would like it to be his last but we haven't worked Sylvester in the rotation at all. So Farrior AND Foote may be back again.

I sure hope not. Out of the 11 starters on defense, he has became the worst. I almost feel bad for him because he is garuanteed to be beat a few times a game for big yards. Every play he is behind somebody. We will see if Gay and/or Lewis can step up against NE, but win or loss, it will be painful to watch Gronkowski or Hernandez 5-6 steps ahead of Farrior picking up a first down. Probably will see it 10 times.

I fear for Potsie this week, we need to get Sly in on obvious passing downs, but I doubt Dick has learnt his lesson from the SB yet!

Why the hell we didn't keep Keyaron Fox I don't know?

The sight of Potsie tackling thin air at one point last night haunts me!
