In response to coolade2's comment:
Just watched tape of playoff win over broncos ... Chung did virtually nothing entire game. His name was mentioned after a whiffed tackle on a tebow option and a cheap shot helmet to facemask late hit on mcgahee.
he did a lot of clapping for teammates arriving late to a play, cheering on mayo for tackling someone and helping him up... But guys listen here and watch the tape ... Actual football plays did not exist.
Chung avoided and waved at contact the whole game but inevitably got in a position where he had to make a tackle... He met mcgahee at the 2 yard line to prevent a touchdown when the game was still close in the first half.... Touchdown Denver with Chung having been driven two yards into the endzone.
sorry but reality is sometimes harsh. Chung does not belong on this football team.
Chung showed some promise in his rookie and 2nd years and I recall in preseason of his rookie year he was asked to cover the slot in a lot of preseason games and folks were all over him for not locking down Moss(santana brother) I remember defending him at the time, saying he is a safety who isnt adept to covering slots but he faired well for a rookie. (rodney was pretty good at it after coming here too) I thought 2010 was sort of a break out year for him and I always thought his best position was playing near the line we showed great tackling skills and ALWAYS wrapped up RBs and when asked to come down and cover the slot he was ok. I think the problem in coverage people speak of is when he is asked to help over the top and frankly not many safeties have shown that ability here since Eugen Wilson. Either dont have range or too slow to react of bad angles. Chungs issue is angles but most safeties will get caught of position if the QB looks them off ala Eli in the Sb to Manningham. So while I understand the critism, I think he needs to be cut some slack,. Just last year practically EVERYONE agreed we needed him back to help our secondary and to me the kid is just overwelmed doing too much in BBs system and now he is hurt this year and never really caught up. To me this kid has regressed since calling his own fake punt(still dont know WHY they gave him that option) but as much as Chung has been at fault, I have to fault the coaches for screwing up what was once a promising player , Im sorry,. You dont go from where he was in 2010 to now by yourself and its happened to all the Dbs. Only guy covering is the rook Dennard and that will most likely change next year. Listen to Bills conference and notice how he talks about changing Schemes in the bye week and tell when youve ever heard that before... B.B. knows these guys are overwhelmed and I blame him for not having enough quality vets on the team . Why is our depth on the line all young guys who never play or are always hurt. When do we give up on Pryor,.Brace, Deaderick and get some Anthony Pleasants and B.Hams!? Where are our Ex players who coach?? 1 guy in Peppers who cant even get a D coaching job yet Patricia can>?Q? explain that...
look around the lead and see how many ex players are coaching and then ask why ALL our assistants outside of Peppers are geeks who coached at community colleges?? U get what u put in. Time for B.B. to admit he needs real help, NO, its actually been time and probably too late now. Look at Kevin Green in G.B. , dude is in sync with his players. He looks to want to go out on the field himself and when he asks Clay to make a play, he does. We dont have that anymore... Atleast we HAD player/coach types but now.... Just B.B. and a bunch of Yes men and PLEASE explain how Matt got the job over Peppers
