Charles Tillman is Struggling
3. Charles Tillman is struggling: I've always admired Tillman's toughness and productivity over the years, but it's been tough to overlook his struggles at cornerback the past few weeks. The veteran is still causing turnovers -- he forced and recovered a fumble against the Bills -- but Tillman is routinely allowing opposing receivers to catch the football, often for first downs. Perhaps the rotation at cornerback should continue when Zack Bowman returns from a foot injury, but instead of Bowman periodically spelling Tim Jennings, maybe he should give Tillman a few series off. Can it hurt?
Mike Williams beats him for 10 catches and 123 yards.
Steven Johnson [11/145] and Roscoe Parrish [7/60/1TD] beat him consistently for 1st downs.
