Free or Strong Safety... Which Position Do I Prefer? - @Kevin_Payne

Firstsafetybanner_medium

Your honorable leader of Turf Show Times, Ryan Van Awesome (Bibber), threw an email my way the other day that included some football questions, so here I am to throw some answers back 'atcha.  I plan on responding to each one of them over the course of the coming days.  

So to kick off this little Q&A, I'll first answer this question...

Which position do you prefer... free safety or strong safety?

Honestly, I don't really don't have a position preference.  I feel I have the ability to play both - I'm comfortable playing free safety and I'm comfortable playing strong.  Basically, whatever the coaches want me to do, I do ;-)

I played both positions in Chicago, and I played both in college, so it's really not an issue for me.  I could play free safety and be in the box, and I can play strong safety and be in the deep middle, like a free safety.  So it really just depends on what defenses you run.  A lot of defenses within the St. Louis Rams' packages require the safeties be interchangeable - meaning that they could both play the middle, and both come down in the box.  So, you know, that's good, because I like to do both.  It's really not a big issue for me on that standpoint.

Of course, if any of you guys have any questions for me, feel free to post them in the comments or on Facebook.com/KevinPayneNFL or Twitter.com/Kevin_Payne.  I probably won't be able to answer all of them, but I'll definitely try (FYI... I like to use questions as inspiration for blog posts, so feel free to ask me about whatever's on your mind - football questions, as well as off-the-field questions, are good to go.)

Ttyl...
