From hearing Brad/DC’s comments after the season, they seemed to intimate that he doesn’t have that DAWG / killer instinct in him…very passive but talented. I think they’ve challenged him. will be intersting to see how he shows up. Also maybe why they haven’t signed another safety if they have faith in him.
It’s not a great sign when a player is drafted as a CB and then changes position to safety after a year. Not giving him a second year to grow into the position when we were short of talent at CB suggests he’s not even close to being an NFL calibre player.
He’s missed 50% of the games due to injury. 17 out of 34. Thigh, hamstring, ankle. 3 different injuries.
And of those 17 games, 3 of them he didn’t finish the game.
If there is one critique of Brad Holmes draft picks it would be the injured dudes. Levi and Iffy have hardly played for example. And you could add Jamo to that as well since he missed most of last season. Paschal also had a bunch of issues, sports hernia and a knee problem.
Holmes is a gambler and is willing to take risks in the draft. It doesn’t always work out. Overall, he’s still crushing it
Possibly by the team annnnD a surgeon, based on what @stephenboyd57 was saying.
I knew Iffy was iffy, but DiDn’t realize it was because of injury. I knew he was not in games, but thought it was just coaches Decision
Also quote from Coach Dan after the Panthers massacre where Iffy started at safety…
“No. 2, Iffy man, (we need more) aggressiveness. Finish on the tackles. Use your hands. He’s a big, long athlete, and he’s got the tools. It’s just, ‘All right, you’ve got your first start under your belt, now we need to see the aggressive side of you come out. You got to play more violent in there, and you do have to finish on these plays.’ That’s what we’re looking for from him.”
Iffy did play much better the next week vs the Bears, when we crushed them. But, Coach Dan is making it sound like Iffy is a little soft.
Compared to coach Dan, EVERYBODY is a little soft. Hahahahaha!
I hear ya, man. Hope he can pull it out of himself. He’s not a natraual warrior, but we all have it in us…just more innate in some ppl, where others have to struggle to get it out of themselves.
