Default Where's Timmons?

Non existant in game 1. Only a late hit in game 2. need some splash plays from him and he needs to play a little more controlled. He has run passed a ton of plays in only 2 games so far.

I saw Timmons make some great plays today. He had a couple significant QB hurries that thwarted Sanchez's timing. I want more from him as well but he made some nice plays today that doesn't show up on the stat sheet.

Here he is with my brother
If Timmons went out drinking with him on Saturday night he'd definitely be in no shape to play Sunday

Timmons lost that battle (flag), but won the war.

Somewhere, Jack Lambert & Greg Lloyd are smiling.

You could even see Timmons trying his damnedest to try and avoid the helmet to helmet hit, tilting his head to the side and coming with the shoulder. Of course, Goofdell can't wrap his head around that football is played at full speed. By grown men. So be it. As someone said, we won the war.

yeah, it seems to me like Timmons made a really good effort not to hit Sanchez too hard. A guy that big and moving as fast as he was has no way to pull up completely. I think the refs made the right call, it's just a bs rule.

Not to mention Sanchez drops his head. It's a shoulder to chest/abdomen hit if Sanchez doesn't curl up into a ball after he lets go of the ball.

Default Re: Where's Timmons?

After re-watching the game I noticed that Timmons had a really big impact on D this past Sunday. He was pretty gap sound on runs. While he may not make the tackle, he eliminates the runners options and allows others to finish the play for minimum gain. Also, he was disruptive in coverage. I don't think he defended any passes but he blocked out passing lanes and seemed to be in the right place more times than not. I hate phrases like "Splash Plays" and "One Trick Pony" because there is so much more to the game than the big play. You can make a living being where you are supposed to be and making it difficult to advance the ball. The big plays will come but if they don't, and we continue to rank in the top 5 in every defensive category, I could care less if a guy makes a bunch of Splash plays..
