Fair enough, though I disagree. Alberts' issue has always been consistency, he's had strings of very solid games in the past before quite literally looking awful. Rome has had significantly better consistency, which is why he has been further up the defensive depth chart for the last 1.5 years. Rome successful covered what were nearly top four minutes last year (17 - 20 minutes / game) on the best defensive team in the league. Nobody remembers the AV Rome-crush anymore?

Could this change? Obviously, there is opportunity for Alberts if he continues to elevate his game, but he hasn't historically been able to maintain this level of play over extended periods.
