Godcheaux and Barmore don't really play the same positions, though there is some overlap. I did (and still do) expect to see Barmore's snap counts and situations tick up.Agree. Play the best players. Don’t act like what crappy teams do and play overpaid or traded-in guys over the best players. Barmore is better than crappy Godchaux. Bourne is better than Parker
Bourne is...maybe better than Parker. I don't love Parker, and I didn't think he would be very useful in this game. As I understand it he was cowed and dominated by Xavien Howard in Dolphins practices, and it was a big/little brother dynamic. As long as he hasn't lost his mojo I think he'll still be plenty useful going forward. Bourne is one of those guys that will always perform best as the 3rd guy. He can dominate that sub-CB and find the gaps in the zone, and "earn" a WR1/2 role, but will get swallowed up by the top DBs on most teams. Like, say, Troy Brown did (though Troy was a very different receiver, he was also like that). Maybe like a Donte Stallworth? Never could carry the load as "the guy," but it was dangerous to defend him with JAG DBs.
Bourne is better at being Bourne than Parker is at being Parker, if that makes sense.
