Glad to see Murray with a good game. Other than Waynes, defense was solid all around. Isidora looked alright out there, good to see some OL depth. Forbath did a good job today other than the PAT. I still think they should stop kicking from the hash. It didn't work for Walsh and it's not working for Forbath.


Outside of the late TD I thought Waynes played well


I counted 2 bad plays, maybe 3. Are we being a little too hard on Waynes? He was in good position for most of the day. Made a few good plays too.


He tackles well but he doesn't seem to track the ball very well. Part of it could be due to his counterparts being very good but I think some of it is how he plays.

Agreed. He also was going up against 2nd-third-string guys so keep that in perspective.

I think so. If the guy gets a 15 yard pass caught on him everyone gripes about it. They have to throw at 1 of our two corners every time and its not going to be Rhodes so we should expect that will happen from time to time. The kid isn't playing bad this year. I just feel like everyone puts Rhodes up on a pedestal and tries to match Waynes up to him and thats just not realistic

He does seem to play the WR more than the ball. But he's usually in good position so it does put pressure on the QB to make a perfect pass. Still, I think he's a strength to this defense more than a liability.

I dont think Ive seen an entire game when Waynes plays well. Thats why QBs throw so balls his way. He has Rhodes on the other side, so he will see more action, but he relies on his speed at the last second to bail him out. And sometimes I swear he has no idea where the ball is. Kind of like when Case throws some balls, I have no idea who the target is, but he is lucky and doesn't get picked off.

It did take Rhodes a few years to get to the shutdown corner he is, I keep hoping Waynes will turn out the same way.
