    Lightbulb Coclough hasn't shown much

    Sitting here watching the beagle game against our Steelers he just got burnt for a 61 yd TD. He hasnt shown much at all last year and he's not showing much in preseason. His job is on the line especially with players like McFadden waiting in the wings to get more playing time and really stepping up to the challenge.

    I think his career is over very soon, at least with us. It's been three years now and generally if a player hasn't done much after three years then he starts looking for a new job. I just don't know what is going to happen with him.

    I think he is pretty much gone. They may give him this year to prove himself, but after that he is done. He needs to step it up. McFadden is only in his second year and is looking so much better than him.

    Looking back, if Coclough was playing in that Indy game instead of McFadden on that last drive then we would not have been Super Bowl champs. McFadden doesnt get beat like Coclough and made a great play to break up that pass where Ricardo wouldnt have done anything to stop it.

    His closing speed sux too, when he got burnt on that 61 yd TD and ended up getting out of position he couldnt close on Greg Lewis for anything.

    Ricardo Colclouch has shown something. He has shown how not to play corner at the NFL level thats for sure.

    I'd have to say he is probably gone this year. It's getting a little crowded in the secondary (which is good!) and he would be last on my list to keep.

    Ricardo showed some trmendous speed last year! But you all are right, he can't close the gap and is more fluff than anything. I thought he looked good in the Cardinal game acting like he could have had a couple of picks, but watching those particular plays again he was no where close to the ball!

    The big thing is going to be what happens with Ike, because if the FO lets him go, then all of a sudden our secondary isn't looking so deep. Ricardo has definitely taken some steps back and hasn't improved one bit.

    Ike says he wants to come back next year but if he doesnt, McFadden will step right in but we'll definately need to address that depth !
