Strong safety Nate Allen has not even completed his third season in the NFL, but he's already endured some of the highs and the lows that the game can bring. With head coach Andy Reid announcing on...

This guy has been pretty awful for some time now...I've been watching him with disgust all the way.  Not aggressive....no awareness or tackling instincts....minimal ball skills.....that play against Atlanta when he "should" have tackled Rodgers in the backfield for a loss but just stood there flat footed sealed my opinion of him....wasted 2nd round pick to go along that Teo'Nesheim pick in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft (Niners took Navarro Bowman in the 3rd of that same draft so we missed twice on him!!)

Im not sure if you guys watched the game against Tampa Bay, but Teo'Nesheim has been a beast for the Bucs. I don't think he was a wasted pic. As usual with our birds he wasnt used properly or even given the opportunity to prove himself.  He sure had a good game against us though.

Teo'Nesheim was a bad pick in the sense that he was a mini-Graham. We drafted a guy for a position already filled (and then some) when there were many quality players still on the board that better fit our needs in both depth and potential starters (Geno Atkins, Jimmy Graham, Navorro Bowman, Darryl Sharpton, Eric Decker, Perry Riley, Jacoby Ford, Corey Wooten, Aaron Hernandez, Dennis Pitta and others were all on the board). Not to mention he was a giant reach in the third round.

Coleman and Allen both were giving the starting position without earning them. I think this is what Coleman needs to light a fire in him. I think he still can fix his problems and be a starter again. His rookie year he should he had a lot of upside. Coleman is a special teams at best. He had a couple alright games but has been beat time and time again. Both should be benched from here on out. Sims should get the chance to start. We def need to think about upgrading our safeties though.
