The SF game is really interesting to me.  They only have one quality win and it’s against a qb that struggles against top defenses.  Could be a momentum gainer for us if we can stand up to their run game.

As a whole, what do you all think of the overall play of King at corner

Ive probably seen Kevin King play as much as anyone having seen every college game he played in at UW.  Kevin King issue is and always will be the small scatback type WR.  The Cole Beasley, Wes Welker, Desean Jackson's will be successful against him.   He works much better on the bigger WRs.  King also works better with the sidelines or endzones as a tool where he can use his height to his advantage.    The middle of the field or inside the hashmarks is probably where he's weakest.   Then you have the health stuff.  Good player, tall and lanky but he's one of those "He is what he is" type players.       

He also had three guys dead to rights for a tackle that I saw and he hit and bounced off or tried to arm tackle. He was one of those irritating draft moves that has yet to pay off at all.

No argument here,  He's fragile, he makes those tackles and he's probably out for a month.

Not a King fanboy but a starting CB on a 7-1 team is far from "Yet to pay off at all". Classic overstatement.

Agree, King has not been a bad tackler on a regular basis. Cover corners are drafted to cover. Dion Sanders couldn't tackle anyone, but it wasn't why he got paid. If King consistently shows he can cover, which he hasn't yet, he will get paid a lot of money. If he is good tackling CB, but can't cover he will be out of the league in a short time. Doubt that the coaching staff is concerned about King's tackling.
