I think Pete and John got caught up in Flower's measurables, and didn't put enough weight into just how hard it is to convert safeties to cornerbacks in the NFL.
So while Flowers did pretty good his rookie year, as games went on teams figured out quickly that he had some glaring deficiencies, mostly his very poor technique and habit of panicking and grabbing receivers.
Led to being picked on (Adams in the GB playoff game), and his confidence waned and waned as he saw the writing on the wall of being replaced.
Honestly, I wish we'd just grab a veteran free agent that's still out there, or a player off of someone else's practice squad. Flowers is a detriment to this defense.....and if Dunbar's knee is going to continue to give him problems, I just don't want to see Flowers anymore. He's going to cost us games. I'd rather get someone else in there, anyone.
