One thing I could see changing is the saefty poistion, Chris Harris I believe will flourish under meeks as will godfrey. I mean for years this man coached bob sanders and Bathea. With that said, I think our front four will have to change, now that we have guarenteed a 4 man rush for most of the game we will have to get solid bookends. (Freeny, mathis) We cant come out there with charles, dlew, kemo and brayton and expect to apply any kind of pressure can we? I excpect some real big free agent signings. Possibly letting Gross walk, cutting lucas, goings etc. and signing haynesworth and suggs. If we lose pep and dont get a high priced de or dt with this system we wont go anywhere. But seeing the talent in indy, I excpect some changes.

We won't turn into a colts defense. There will be changes but keep in mind this is fox's team.

Gross does not walk because of a Defensive Policy. Cover-2 or Tampa-2 (yes they're different) can be played with low "value" players. Many underrated players flourish under the scheme. I personally think C. Johnson moves inside fulltime. Brayton and Incumbent on the outside. Kemo and Lewis rotating. We won't be making a huge splash in free agency, but a Tampa-2 defense doesn't call for first round talent on the defensive line. You don't need it. Look for D-line in 2-3 round and probably again in the later rounds. We might see a Linebacker drafted too. Seward walks, Conner takes his place in the middle. I think James Anderson sticks around for backup to Thomas Davis. Our Linebackers should really flourish in whatever scheme Meeks provides. If this so-called pep trade occurs (however it occurs) we may get some needed picks for other positions as well.

Wouldn't it make more sense to put Brayton inside instead of Johnson if we were to do that? I mean, given he has experience playing DE himself?

It's just a feeling, I have nothing to back it up with. But yeah, it probably would. Although I see Brayton as more of a DE Athlete than someone who can fight through guards.
