How great would it have been to have a guy like Tru available in the 2005 playoffs? We never would have had to insert Etric Pruitt who had almost no game experience into the game. If you have a Trufant-esque player to stick in at safety (yes.... safety) for the 2nd half of Super Bowl XL, then you're really happy you have that depth on the roster. As it was, we were at our #4 safety and Pruitt was completely lost and there was nothing the team could do. I think Tru is the kind of guy that could come in and at least not let a ball get over the top on him like Pruitt did a few times. You stick him back there 20 yards off the ball, or you move one of the other guys in and put him in as a dime DB. Regardless of his losing steps or anything else, he still knows how to play, and it was a lack of depth in the backfield that really ended all hope when we were down to the last man on the roster playing DB. If Trufant is your last man on the roster then you're doing alright I'd say.
R.I.P. Dad. I miss you. You will never be forgotten
