    Re: Mosley vs. Te'o

    I think LB interceptions are often off tip passes (thanks to the DL) and "gotcha coverages" when the LB drops and the QB wasn't expecting him to be there. In a sense, it involves lucks to catch a tip pass and calling an LB drop which is conducive to picking the pass (the offense has to call something going into his area).

    To classify his INT's as luck, we must first define what a lucky INT is. I'm not sure I am capable of that.
    I sort of see what B1Gs saying. I think the "luck" involved is placing oneself in the right place at the right time. And there is a difference when someone goes 0-0-7, as opposed Lester, the Bama safety who's gone 8-2-4 over the last three years. OTOH, it's true the ILBs just don't have the number of opportunities that safeties do...

    Re: Mosley vs. Te'o

    Both are great players, and we can go on and on all day about who is better. All I know is that if not for CJ tipping that pass on the last play of the SECCG, we may not even be talking about this. For that reason alone, all Bama fans are going to (or should) choose CJ. It will all be settled on the field Monday...

    The one thing I will say that Te'o committed himself to improving his drops in coverage this past off-season. He shed some weight to get a little quicker while keeping his ability to plug the gaps. I think the 7 INTs are a little aberrant and partially due to tip passes but some of his INTs were a direct result of being in the right place or getting somewhere people thought he couldn't by old tape on him.

    Te'o is a fine LB, but give me Mosley any day of the week and twice on Saturdays and National Championship Mondays. And I do believe he will outshine his competition during the game.

    Re: Mosley vs. Te'o

    I am not sure a valid comparison is possible. What will Mosley do his senior year? What would Te'o have done at Alabama? What would Mosley have done at Notre Dame? At this point in their careers I think it is pretty much a wash based on anything measurable. The media is going to hype anyone that makes a easy story. That should not be a knock on either player.
