  • Prince

    I got a little worried after watching this, he looked lost on so many plays, I know that rookie DBS get smoked a lot but after all the hype, I expected more. Even on the pick, he got toasted but then made a nice move on a under thrown ball. Hopefully a full training camp plus all the tape of him getting smoked helps him become a better player next year. He's def a solid tackler which is a huge plus

    Re: Prince

    Prince got better as the season progressed. He played solid ball in the playoffs and SB. I remember Buck highlighting the fact that Prince was in the game, and that we should look for Aaron Rodgers to exploit him. Yet we all saw Aaron look Prince's way, and he found NOTHING.

    Prince will be fine.

      Re: Prince

      Injuries are real hard to come by and a lot of players had trouble without preseason. They also said Prince is too intellegent and that can be bad. I think they put that as a problem because he may think he knows more than what the play and do somthing else and knowing too much can make him think too much.

        Have to agree, he really stepped it up in the playoffs and did well against some very good O's. I think he will be healthier and wiser, which should make for a very strong showing this year. Will be fun to watch!

          CB is the 2nd hardest position to adjust to in the NFL coming out of college. It's the hardest on defense.

          I won't have any final assessment of Prince until his 3rd season but I certainly hope he keeps progressing.

          Last year he was obviously unfortunate enough to not play most of the season but he still got some playing experience on the hardest possible stage.

          I'm really looking forward to the competition at CB this year with Webster, T2, Prince, and Hosley.

            Re: Prince

            He missed all of camp, all of preseason, etc.. and got thrown in at about week 10 when the stretch got important. He performed very well in the playoffs. People were ready to throw him under the bus after his first start. This offseason will be great for his progression and next year will be his breakout year.

              How does everyone forget how awful Cweb was for his first 2 years. Prince will be fine. He just needs time to develope

                [/quote]I am not worried at all about the kid. In fact, I expect a solid move to the upside by him this year with a full training camp building on his experience from last year.
                No one remembers who came in second.

                  Not enough people on these boards acknowledge this. He beasted in playoffs once he got fully healthy and had played some games. Shut down Julio Jones and Jordy Nelson when Ross went out with injury in both games. Rodgers wanted to go that way and he absolutely could not, helping us get pressure and sacks. He will be ready to start on the outside, I will be disappointed if Thomas gets more snaps on the outside than in the slot. It's better suited for him even before injury, and even more so after.

                  Prince was considered a top 10 talent for a reason. You don't play that talent in the slot and give a guy with two torn ACL's and was already getting burned pretty often more snaps. Sorry to T2 fans, I'm just one of the people who found him to be a bit overrated. I'd love his ability in the slot as a blitzer sure tackler and ball hawk but I just don't have a lot of faith in him man to man on the outside.

                    I agree with your assesment on Prince and T2. Prince will be the real deal tho. Be patient.

                      I for one am willing to give ALL our 2011 rookies another chance. Prince, Austin, Jernigan, Brewer, Jones, Sash, Williams, and Scott all have great potential to develop into something, and none of them had any offseason to speak of to learn the system. It's the folks like Ware and Barden that have had a looooong time to show us something and have failed to deliver that I don't want to see as much of...

                      I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                        This. Iirc, prince was matched up on nelson when either ross or webby had to leave for a bit and buck commented how rodgers kept looking toward nelson and prince had him.

                        Im extremely optimistic with prince bc he was playing excellent man coverage.
                        then in the sb he had a real nice play on some sort of zone/cover two concept where he dropped off correctly, forced and underneath pass, and then made an excellent tackle right as the ball was caught.

                        I def. Saw signs and flshes of a guy capable of being lock down caliber

                          Re: Prince

                          People r forgetting what a prospect prince is. Beofre his draft season, he was considered the "p.peterson/claiborne" caliber corner.

                          He has all the tools ability and intelligence to be a special corner. We got him at pick 17 where dallas had to give up picks to get their guy.

                          There was no offseason to speak of, he hurt his foot first day of practice, and it was tough for everyone especially rookies. The fact the coaches played prince when and how they did speaks to the ability and promise they see in this kid.

                          As someone said above, webby was pretty awful his first two yrs...give prince time before coming to a conclusion on him...i believe he is gonna be a shutdown level corner, i really do.

                          Revis even struggled a lil early in his career...well maybe the better way to say it is it took revis a couple yrs to get to the level hes at now bc it took him a while to get an accurate idea of the opposing wrs and have a memory bank of the moves they used, and for him to understand how and what to look at when watching film...lets give prince enough time for him to develop

                            Do you even watch the draft? We got Prince at pick 19 and Dallas got one of the best tackles in the league at the number 9 overall, without moving up. At least try and research a little before you say random things.

                            I however, also do think that Prince will be a good/great player. Lets wait and see.

                              Still bitter bc i disagreed when u literally said osi plays the run as good as jpp huh...

                              Sorry, i dont know how u woulda assumed that i said we drafted prince the samet year they drafted claiborne. I was merely saying that both the teams got a top ten talent corner on their rosters. We got ours by beingt patient, while dallas had to give up picks to get theirs. Edit-sorry my cells sucks with the auto correct stuff i dunno how to turn it off
                              And PICK 19...instead of 17...that made u feel ur entitled to try and instigate and claim if i even watched the draft...lmfao WOW ...let it go. Ten days from now im not gonna be hawking every one of ur posts to look for small errors to try and start something like u currently are doing. GET OVER IT...u made a ridiculous claim and i disagreed. This whole bs is getting lame.

                              Moving on, I dont get how people can claim one way or the other about prince. I mean i am optimistic as possible with him but thats just an opinion. He hasnt shown enough one way or the other for anyone to define him imo
