Nate Allen

Theres been a ton of awfulness with the Eagles defense this year dont get me wrong. But nobody to me has been so, so consistently bad as Nate Allen. Every time I look up hes either: forgetting who to cover, knowing who to cover and just plain getting burnt, or missing tackles all over the field. Tonight he actually combined all 3 in one play. Coleman isnt Ed Reid either I know, but atleast he seems to fly around and make tackles (albeit usually after a 10-15 yard gain). I feel like we've gotten some value with Coleman because we drafted him later. Nate Allen was a 2nd round pick.

Heres what really gets me about Nate Allen. I wanted Earl Thomas and when we traded up to 12th I thought that was our guy. But I remember watching him before he got hurt last year and thinking "Alright this guys a pretty solid player,definetly gonna be our starter for awhile". I even thought when our defense really started to suck that his injury was part of the reason why. It seems to me we have a situation like Stewart Bradley: Guy shows promise as a rookie, gets hurt, then apparently recovers but doesn't really seem to be close to the pre-injury version. Mabye just too mentally hesitant.

I guess I want to put the question out there: Am I right that he seems to have transformed from promising to one of the worst safeties in the league? Did he always suck dick and I was just being optimistic when I thought he was good? Or am I being too hard on him this year?
