    Kerry Rhodes is a beast. I remember his rookie season when my bro and I would yell at him on kickoffs to get him pumped and he would ALWAYS look at us and ackknowledge that we existed.

    We would scream, "Kerry! Go knock somebody out!"

    Kerry would snap his head and look at us and start jumping up and down and would nod his head in agreement.

    It was cool having that interaction with him every kickoff.

    Doesn't really matter much...he's a do it all kind of guy in the mold of A. Wilson and Troy P. but I think he's better than both of them in coverage.

    Haha, I don't know about all of that, but it was cool regardless. We sit pretty close so it is easy to get the player's attention. Usually it is the opposing team we are yelling at though because we sit on their sideline. The punter of the opposing team practices RIGHT in front of us and we just BLAST them ALL game long. I wouldn't lose my voice after games if the damn punters weren't right there for me to heckle :)

    That was a fun, fun story. :)

    Right after the Raiders game when the Jets got into the PO's in '06, Kerry Rhodes came all the way over to the opposite sideline to whoop it up with us. We sit on the opposing side, and he walked over just by himself to jump up and down and cheer with us. He was so happy, he looked like a kid in a candy store. Good stuff.

    Nice..

    I was at that game too, and was in the mosh pit at the entrance to the locker room. We waited for Chad to finish an interview and once he walked towards us we all went crazy. What a season that was.

    Not a dumb question.

    But the answer is he is listed as a SS but in our system it really does not matter, both safeties need to know how to play the run and the pass and come up and put a lick on someone. Period.

    As others said, in our system there isn?t a SS and a FF. It?s more like a left-S and a right-S.

    This is because the 34 is even and doesn?t really adjust to the opposing strong side, at least not as much as the 43 does.
