  • Imagine if Clint Sintim and Chad Jones had panned out

    Too bad for Chad, but his immaturity derailed his career. If not for the accident, we might have one of the best safeties in the game. While Eric Berry and Earl Thomas were the best rated (rightfully so) and most accomplished safeties in the 2010 NFL draft, many scouts believed that if Chad Jones devoted his full attention to football and gave up baseball, that he could be the best safety to come out of the draft because of his size and measureables - Chad was big for a safety - 6'3" tall and around 230 pounds. Basically he had Taylor Mays's size and Earl Thomas's speed.

    Sintim, while most scouts believed he would be best suited in a 3-4 because he is a big linebacker and had edge rushing prowess, showed something to Jerry Reese. A lot of people wondered why Reese drafted a 3-4 LBer for our defense when he seemingly didn't fit, but Reese, as he has done with so many other players, went against convention and picked someone based on talent evaluation and not the scheme that they played in. Unfortunately, the misgivings were probable founded and Reese swung and missed on this. But we won't really know if Sintim failed because he was a bad fit, or if the injuries derailed him.

    But imagine had these guys panned out for us. This year, our depth is phenomenal, and I can't help to wonder that if these guys had panned out, if they'd be stars by now for us.

    Dont disrespect chad like that and call him immature. He is nothing of the sort.

    As for Sintim, scheme had nothing to do with it. He was soft.

      Well, Chad Jones wrecked his vehicle all by himself by traveling WAY too fast. It was a one vehicle accident, so I understand the "immature" comment. I
      saw him play SEC games and he was a superb player. It's truly a shame that this happened, because he had unlimited potential.

        Except he was never charged with speeding, and nobody really knows how fast he was going. He lost control of a vehicle. It was an accident. Lets call him out as being immature because he had an accident? Truly pathetic

            People are ridiculous when they are comparing Chad Jones what-if career to Sean Taylor and Ed Reed. At least with Sean Taylor, we saw him play for several years at a high level in the NFL, and he was rounding out to be a top safety in NFL history. How can we make a huge prediction thinking this guy would of been a hall of famer....who knows if his heart was completely into football...and with Kenny Phillips and Rolle who knows if he would of had trouble sniffing the field and has to play a hybrid position like Kiwi (that messed up his career).

              How can you say he is disrespecting Chad Jones for being immature, then call Sintim soft for suffering bad injuries? A guy trying to come back from a broken leg, and a couple of acl tears should not be considered soft since he was working hard to come back. Brittle? Yeah you could say so. But soft? Not enough evidence to even remotely suggest that. Unless you are saying that injured players are soft?

                Sintim was soft when he was on the field. Nothing to do with his injuries.

                      Not to mention that Taylor Mays had better than Earl Thomas speed, Mays ran a 4.3 flat...

                      Mays just had awful hips and no lateral movement.

                      But Chad Jones likely could have ran much better, he was the best athlete on that team, just did not test that well, similar to how JPP was relatively average at the combine.

                        Eh, Chad Jones was a 3rd round pick for a reason because he was only an average athlete who had limited range and ability in coverage. Fan's just like to romantize his skillset because he got injured, but i'm not sure he would've contributed too much on the current roster

                          He was a 3rd round pick because he was only an average player. Only had I believe two interceptions his college career. He was actually rather raw, and only started like half the games his last year of college.

                            He was 2nd team SEC and had 5 Int's (3 as a JR) for his career. He was pretty good, but nothing special much like his athletiscm

                              Thats not how everyone scouts/teammates talked about him, everyone said he was incredibly gifted athleticially, was the best athlete on that team. He just was not a consistently great or even good player.
