CB Situation

85 posts in this topic

I know that this has been brought up in other threads, but, it was made pretty evident tonight. I think we can all agree that our CB situation is not in a good place, and we need to make a move.

Sure, Kendric Burney is there, and Captain is playing well, but, let's be honest... Can Captain or Burney stop Colston, Williams, White, or any other NFC receiver?

The hype for Burney is uncalled for.

Oh, I agree. But, isn't it about all we have at this point?

Chris Gamble has been sitting on the sideline sick, Captain is 4ft tall, and who knows what the other CBs are doing.

i have Faith in Cap, donno why but i do. If he's continued to improve he may do alright. But i've decided to say, "eff this cb situation". Maybe im impatient but im tired of thinking about it, i just want to see how Rivera will have the defense lookin.

This thread is gonna fail so hard, but I wish it wouldn't. It's really a topic that warrants sensible discussion, but I'm predicting another pissing match.

Wait a little bit, next couple of days, someone is bound to get cut.

If they don't, then let the midgets ride.

Next years draft, we can get a top 5 CB to compliment/Compete with a Healthy Hogan and Gamble.

Cap is destined to be a nickel, and a darn good one. But he's not made to matchup outside with bigger, faster athletes. It's just not his strength at this level.

I think he can make a solid nickle or dime. Obviously, since Captain is here, Burney is a dime guy. But, if Captain gets injured, Burney is a solid back up there.



We absolutely need a solid #2 corner alongside Gamble. Gamble is awesome when healthy. He had a bad year last year, but I am not too worried. If he duplicates it this year, THEN I will be worried. We shall see. I love what I see as far as what this new defense wants to do with the DBs though. It isn't as obvious pre-snap, so hopefully we aren't picked apart from the opposing team's first snap to the last. Again, regardless of the scheme, we need to get a good CB in here ASAP.

We have an issue that's for sure.

Gamble is...well dunno what is wrong with Gamble.

Cptn is a Nickle/Short

RJ Stanford is ....well RJStanford

Burney is a UNC Fan wetdream that will probably never come true.


Our best hope at this point is cuts and/or signing someone out of the garbage heap.


Im glad DWill is here, I like him as a player, but Jonathan Joseph sure does look spiffy right now....

I'm honestly not sure.

I know Gamble's a vet, and a pretty good one, but this is an entirely new defense. He needs to be in there with the rest of those guys learning it.

If we don't bring in a CB taller than 5'10 who is actually a decent player, we will get torched this season. It will be fun watching us try to defend Fitz week 1. Better yet, Nicks on the 13th.

IIRC, when I was there Monday, Gamble was watching and with the DBs during drills. Hopefully, he has been there every day. If that is the case, he should be OK from an understanding point of view. Execution is a whole other monster though. Hopefully, he can get it done.

Yeah, it's a bit of a pressing issue. Depending on how good/bad our QB's are, we could be competitive THIS year! The team has talent. The NFL's about matchups however and in today's game, in this division, you need to matchup well against strong passing attacks. That's why Philly for example is loading up on DB's. We at least need another 2nd tier CB, or Rivera and co. will have to get really creative defensively.

Would like to see us bring in a solid #2 CB
A proven starting caliber RG
If not a true starter at least a rotational DT and DE
Some OT depth

Oh but wait, we're in cap hell and don't have any money to spend. Yay (over)spending spree!

Well we can't repair every hole this season. The only GLARING starting hole is CB right now. Depth can be damned.

Bring in good CB to play opposite of Gamble or our defense is going to suffer, doesn't have to be as good as Gamble per se, but at least alongside the talent of our current CB's behind Gamble and taller. Both Captain and rookie guy is 5'9 or thereabouts.

If we don't pick anyone up to play CB then need not worry, Coach Ron and Mcdermott have a better idea about what we have defensively than all us. They know exactly what kind of division the NFC South is. They already know how we're going to defend those teams and bet money its gonna have alot to deal with LB blitzing...

No more balloon coverage BS

pretty sure this is where the last thread went sour. . .


If we're in cap hell then we'll make rosters moves that put us in place. Im sure Goodson could fetch some fair value to someone at this point. Lots of teams looking for bargains out there is what it looks like to me right now. I think the team has showed its going to be aggressive so I think we'll be getting someone to play opposite gamble some way or another. We'll see. Theyve made great roster moves so far.

This Gamble thing is weird. I can't believe it's a simple virus. He has been almost invisible, no interviews, quotes, etc.

I am not sure everything is quite right with Chris..
