Myth: Safety Isn’t A Premium Position

Recommended Posts

This is repeated time and again by fans and certain media like it’s sacrosanct. It may not have been a premium position 20 years ago, but if has been for awhile now in this pass-happy NFL era. Almost every SB participant the past 10 years has had excellent safety play. To combat potent passing offenses generally,and more specifically the phenomenon of dominant TEs littering the league. Such as Kittle, Kelce and before them the likes of Gronk. 

It’s obviously nowhere near high premium like QB. But there’s a reason KC won it all with a average corner play - Matthieu is a beast who helped get them over the top. Another example is New England: Belicheat teams always feature good safety play. 

JD did well getting that much - but that a great franchise like Seattle coughed up that much to get Jamal, indicates how critical the safety position is and how good Adams is. Don’t be surprised if Seattle is in the Super Bowl this season. 

Ashtyn Davis, step on up.

Jamal Adams is a glorified linebacker. The players you mentioned are great against the pass.

Where did the glorified LB become a thing, an insulting thing at that?  

The guys a great player, get over that part of the equation.

A FS that generates a LOT of turnovers and is a great cover guy is premium position.

A SS box safety that cannot generate turnovers is one of the least valuable positions on the team.

And this is laughable

You just cant help repeating the same baseless line of cliches

When you put a player on the field to stop the pass but all he can do is stop the run he is not an asset.

He wasn't put on the field to play the run on the plays when he was sent out to play the point of attack

When you watch football and cant see the difference by how hes lined up thats on you.

When you watch football and come out thinking Jamal Adams is a generational type player that’s on you.

If Seattle is in the Super Bowl this season, it's because of Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett, and DK Metcalf.  Not Jamal Adams.

If you believe Mattheiu is the reason KC went to, and won, the Super Bowl, delete your account.

That shutdown Corner  level right there!
