Jovante Moffatt in place of Ronnie Harrison
We’ve found out why Jacksonville traded Ronnie Harrison. Up until the Ravens game, he was clocking in with PFF in the high-50’s. Now he’s at 60.8. Not great, but far from terrible. The problem with Harrison comes down to one issue and one issue only, he’s unreliable. Not just as a tackler, general defender, or anything involving his play but in his behavior as well.
We’ve seen him get in a fight with an opposing team’s coach. Sure, some will want to defend him, but that’s foolish. At the end of the day, he could’ve just walked away. He didn’t need to start pushing a 50-something-year-old man. That was a childish way to react. He also had a smattering of other issues this year, and last. More importantly, he had his fair share of incidents in college too, like accusations of late and cheap hits. Harrison is just as likely to get you a 15-yard penalty as he is a big play.
Jovante Moffatt doesn’t present a clearly better option, but at least Moffatt doesn’t have the same reputation as Harrison and that’s about all we can take from this idea. The Browns secondary is fine but not at safety. No one, not John Johnson, Grant Delpit, or Richard LeCounte have played well all year. There’s no real option that we’ve seen who gives me or anyone else faith that they could do the job.
Moffatt at least doesn’t have any negative stigmas against him as the rest do at this point.
