    Mo was making tackles that Harris missed. The middle has always been a weakness, I think Rex was willing to give up the middle so to speak so long the front and the back are covered defense is about not allowing points in the end not yards.

    The truth is that he made a lot more impact plays when Bart Scott was taking on blockers and freeing him up

    True, but has missed some one on ones, but it is preseason.

    I think the reaction is based on last week. He had a really bad game, hopefully, that's all it is. I mean he missed 5 open field tackles and was 2 steps behind everyone he covered. This is fact, not opinion. Lets see this week.

Also, I have read nothing but good things about Pace in camp, including the apparent return of his ability to set the edge. Use him for 50 percent of the snaps to keep his old legs fresh and he should be fine.

    Demario Davis has straight line speed but if you watched him this preseason has been worse than David Harris in coverage. I would be more worried about D davis, than David Harris.(he is what he is)

    Harris was never a burner but he sure has looked very slow at times.. Even two years ago vs pats in playoffs on his int return.. He is good against run but with teams adopting the hurry up to stop the run/pass subs expose guys like Harris.. He still is still serviceable, but doesn't deserve being 1 of highest paid in league.. Another bad contract by MT.. Not saying I wouldn't want him but many teams cut overpaid vet then re-sign them to on par salary.. Mt love to guarantee everyone, Tone, Sanchez, Harris, ect.. Terrible gm

    Bingo

    I noticed that Davis takes bad angles and overpusues on many plays. Hopefully this is something he can get batter at.

    The linebackers are old and slow.
