Cody Grimm And Sean Jones Are “The Wolfs”

September 21st, 2011

Joe referenced earlier that Raheem Morris was pleased with the play of his safeties against Minnesota.

Looking at game film, Raheem was fired up that Cody Grimm and Sean Jones didn’t let Adrian Peterson run wild — or at least more wild. Now it seems Raheem is so filled with pride he’s given the duo a nickname, “The Wolfs,” so he proclaimed at his news conference today. (No. Not Wolves. That’s Wolfs.)

“We call those guys back there the Wolfs. It’s kinda like Pulp Fiction. You gotta clean up a mess, you call The Wolf. They sent the Wolf and I was excited. [Grimm] and Sean J last week called in the Wolf,” Raheem said. “We missed some run gaps on Adrian Peterson, missed some tackles. And the Wolfs just didn’t let him break out to 60 yard touchdown runs. They sawed him down in the middle of the field, got him down on the grass and gave us another opportunity to get the ball back for [Freeman]. So I’m excited about my young Wolf [Grimm] back there lurking.”

For those unfamiliar with the 1994 classic Pulp Fiction. Here’s the scene with The Wolf below:

    If you’re “unfamiliar” with Pulp Fiction you’ve got serious issues

    Jones played well, Grimm; not so much. He was so afraid of contact that I thought he might have been playing with a shoulder injury. It was the poorest tackling by him that I had ever seen. I think Rah might be trying to gove him a public pep talk…cause there’s no way he liked what he saw from Grimm…ie diving on the ground and grabbing at an ankle.

  7. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    What is it with the sudden rash of players (Larsen, Grimm, Black) not wanting to disclose their injuries when it is “painfully” obvious that there play is suffering and they, in turn, are letting their team down.

  8. Capt.Tim Says:

    Sometimes I wonder what posters here base their critiques on. Is it One play? Or a player they don’t like? I watched both games again, focusing on the safeties. I was surprised at how well they both have played! I wasn’t impressed with Jones last year- thought he was average at best. He’s a different guy this year! Seems to be a step faster to everything. Grimm is still showing the great instincts in deciphering plays.
    I agree with Coach. Safeties have been a real bright spot.

    You watch the films, you see McCoy living in the offensive Backfield. You see the safeties preventing a dozen plays by reading the play. Yet post here trash them

    You see Black and Hayes absolutely and deliberately hiding on run plays, and Talib getting beaten on simple out routes, and no one says a bad word about any of them
    It’s like they must broadcast 3 or 4 versions of the same game!

  9. OAR Says:

    Oh, I’m sorry, did I break your concentration?

  10. Shmuckaneer Says:

    Capt Tim. Do you know anything about the game? Talib getting beat on simple out routes?? When has that happened on a regular basis or even once? You’re full of crap or have no idea what football is if you watched the Minne game again and thought Grimm played well. Dude is a Safety and was so scared of contact you swore he was channeling Primetime! His open field tackle on Percy Harvin he got lucky on. He ducked his head and dove at Percy’s knees and didn’t wrap up. Every time he went after AP he just dove on the ground, grabbed AP’s foot and got drug until someone else came to help out. When Gerhart had his break aways Grimm was practically running away from the play. I guess he was just trying to cut off any downfield cutback lanes…right? lol Grimm’s a cute story, but his play last week was wimpy at best.

  11. Shmuckaneer Says:

    hahaha OAR…”Allow me to retort” lol

  12. OAR Says:

    Now, for lunch, I want royale with cheese!

    Disagree with Shmuck, agree with the Capt. Grimm may have made some ankle tackles against AP, but he didn’t dive at the ankles. He dove to catch AP before he left the gap into another lane. AP was cutting back and forth through different lanes all day. Many here are lauding Foster for 10 tackles, but two of his tackles against Peterson were also ankle grabbing shoelace tackles. Ruud would have been run out of town on a rail for making those two tackles in a game. Grimm is a Safety, not a LB, he tackled wherever he could. Ankles, waist, whatever, just get your hands on the guy and don’t let go. MUCH better than Black having an open shot on AP and watching him run by, or running by AP and then looking up and saying “Where’d he go?”. I disagree with the Capt, in that I think Hayes had a decent game.

  14. Shmuckaneer Says:

    I don’t know if you DVR every game or not but if you do go back and watch. He was ankle tackling AP everytime…not just when he was chasing him down. Last week he wasn’t playing the same ball he played last year. Watch it again…you’ll see.

  15. Shmuckaneer Says:

    “Aww man…I just shot Marvin in the face!”

  16. Capt.Tim Says:

    schmuckaneer- for people like yourself, they have “stats”. Check on yer hero’s “thrown at” and “defended” stats, instead of the Lies your loving eyes tell you. I’m sure you can reach Talib at his Facebook page.

    BamBamBuc- I’ve always said you were one of the brightest guys around here! Lol! And you might be at least partial right about Hayes- he has shown at least some effort in the run game last week- still has a ways to go! But he might be trying to change his ways.

  17. Capt.Tim Says:

    Schmuckaneer- I don’t care if he tonsil tackles him! I’m just glad he’s tackling him!

    I have certainly taken notice to how well sean jones has been playing and he is easily one of our most underrated players. Not the flashiest, biggest, or fastest on the field. but every time a ball reaches the secondary jones is quickly in the area. very sure tackling and i’m impressed. cody grimm still isnt at 100% and thats obvious. but once he is. i think our safties match up with anyone in the league.

  19. BamBamBuc Says:

    Heck, Grimm could “use the Force” to tackle for all I care. I just want the opponent on the ground. What’s funny is that after the game, the stats all look the same. You’d never know that this guy or that guy was tackling around the ankles or flat out leveling the guy. It still goes down as a tackle. So, for anyone that wants us to bring in a FA because they saw some highlights of his “big hits” (probably his only big hits, that’s why they made the highlights) and see the stat line that says he makes 100+ tackles a year…. think again, you don’t know if he only popped a guy 3 times in highlights and made 97+ ankle tackles. Grimm made ankle tackles against a powerful yet shifty runner in Peterson, but last year he showed he knows how to pop a guy too.

  20. McBuc Says:

    On a guy like Peterson, it is smart to tackle low anyway. If he attempted a “big hit” and failed, would you not be more upset? Hit the legs and wrap up, if all you can get is the ankle or foot, well you either tripped him up or at least slowed him down for someone else to finish off.
