compton blew that rb td swing pass.....looked incredibly slow.
He was a good 2 seconds slow in recognizing it and running to the ball. He's plenty fast, but not if he misses his read and gives the opponent a running start.
ya he read it bad, but his so called speed has not impressed me this year. hes is not noticably an athlete at lb.....
His testing times have remained impressive, but I agree he hasn't shown that speed on the field. I do, however, tend to think a lot of it has to do with indecisiveness. He definitely played like a freshman Saturday, and it wasn't the first time this season. The same could be said of Fisher.
Dillard should be the starter until either proves he isn't worthy of it or someone proves themselves to be a better all-around linebacker.
My money's on Dillard.
