SHOUTOUT TO A FUTURE STAR - AL AFALAVA

He Just Has The Right Intensity:

Just watching this guy play gives me hope for our Bears.  I see him and I am reminded of Mike Brown, but not for the wrong reason. (Injuries)  No, Afalava has shown me glimmers of a potentially good career.  I say potentially because anything can happen, including becoming the next Troy Polamalu or Adrian Wilson.  I remember watching a Troy Polamalu interception, where he reaches out with one hand  while falling and brings it in ( Titans vs Steelers Week 1) and saying to myself, "there aren't many Safeties in the NFL who can do that.  Then Al Afalava almost pulls off that same play vs the Seahawks Week 3.  He was so close!!!

 

I also love the intensity he brings with every tackle.  Every hit he lands is a big one with the possibility of a loose ball. He also just recently showed us that he can play both Safety positions at the same level. He is better against the run than he is in coverage but being his rookie season, I believe he has done a good job. Here's hoping we have found ourselves a great future Safety in Al Afalava.

 

Hopefully it isn't enough to save that bum Angelo from losing his job. LOL

 

COME ON NOW, THAT ISN'T HOW WE TAKE CARE OF THE ENEMY
