Analysis: Preseason Game 3

Meeks has always been a good coach, but sooner or later in the NFL you have to decide where your money is going. Offense or Defense/ Run or Pass/ Field position or clock management. It's not as cut and dry as that anytime players are concerned, but we are lucky to have gotten Meeks when his and Trgovic's contract were up.

Meh, I think they are all still a puppet of Fox. Our defense really hasnt changed that much, just the jersey numbers.

Mr. Scot,

What good things did Godfrey show tonight? I keep reading he is coming along but it's tough to tell what that means with a safety.

How was the trio of Brown, Hardy, Norwood? I know the defense played lights out were these guys a big part of that?

How was Clausen tonight?

Thanks much, its tough never being able to watch games and draw conclusions for myself.

Godfrey did well in coverage and had a really nice sack on a safety blitz. Truthfully, the pass rush is making it a lot easier for the secondary.

Everette Brown finally seems to be getting there rather than just getting "near misses".

Greg Hardy can be found in various threads around the board, and deservedly so.

Didn't see Norwood tonight, but I'll review the game again. He's not listed in the stats.

This being preseason three, Clausen only played in mop-up time. hard to tell much about him given that, for the most part, everyone around him was screwing up.

Can someone tell me.....Does Brian Witherspoon player corner or safety for us?? It will be a big determining factor on the final 53, I think.

Corner.

Meeks doesn't need 3 probowlers to get pressure with the front 4 at least.

We might have some pro-bowlers on our hands though...

I'm confused on what happened in Indy? Did Meeks just need a defensive minded team, I'm impressed.

When Jim Caldwell took over from Tony Dungy, the Colts parted ways with Meeks. From what I remember, Caldwell just wanted to go in a different direction as far as scheme (more blitzing). As to how it came down, I've read in some places that he resigned, while others say he was dismissed. I guess the best answer is that it was mutual.

I still think this is a 9-7 team or better this season.

Gamble, Marshall, Capt., and Wilson (maybe Wilson) are more or less locked up as corners. I'm thinking we are likely to keep 5.

Since Wilson has some safety experience (although he is much better IMO at man coverage)....And I'm thinking Hudson has been playing safety....And Franscisco seems like any injury after thought....

Are you guys thinking an entire crew of 9 DBs? If so, who?
