Video of some Valentino Blake errors from last season

TheMcThrill : 5/19/2017 11:07 am
I'm not terribly familiar with Valentino Blake, a CB FA the Giants signed from the Titans for depth, so when I watched this compilation video of boneheaded plays from last year, I was surprised they actually had a small segment of just Valentino Blake.

In the first clip he get's burned but the TD is dropped. In the second, on a fumble he indicates that the opponent has possession of the ball. In the third he acts as if he is a gunner trying to down the ball on the one but the Titans were receiving the punt. He should have let it go for a touch back, or at least gotten away from it and prevented the possibility of making it a live ball.

I don't know anything about him as a player, but hopefully we won't see any similar errors from him next year.

It's a slow time of year so I thought I should share.

The overall consensus is that he is awful.

However, Sy seemed to like him. Though he didn't go into any detail.
you know your team is good

whatever. [yes, it's the same player]
Doesn't appear to have football smarts

Not the kind of player you want on your team.
Titans fans were glad to be rid of him.
He's on his fourth team in five years.

The less he sees the field, the better.
I expect Jadar Johnson

to earn quite a bit of playing time in dime packages ... rangy safety/great ball skills

biggest weakness is run support, could turn out to be quite a "playmaker" though.
I'll be honest

I know more about Rudolph Valentino, than Valentino Blake.
Who? I have no clue, therefore no opinion.

Jadar Johnson needs to learn how to tackle

If he was a sure tackler he would have been drafted. Watch his highlights. Constantly bouncing off running backs

Just what the Giants D needs, a poor tackler.

I followed the Titans last year and was not impressed with Blake. To be fair, any time opposing QB's have 4-7 seconds to find a receiver, the secondary is going to look terrible. I don't believe VB will make the final 53.
