I wouldn't mind the pickup, but lucas would have to be gone and he would have to come in as a starter. Thats what did him in with the lions. It would be a good secondary again though. With that said though, Fox really likes wilson and Marshall. If lucas goes expect a good camp battle between the two. Wilson winning it from marshall. Fox sees Wilson as the future starter, Gamble was just given a massive contract so he wont be seeing the bench.

So you're saying Jason David would be a barnburner here?... :D

Coached by Meeks = Good

Not Coached by Meeks = Bad

(Equation = Stretch)

David's dropoff has a lot to do with going from zone to man schemes, but it has at least a little validity to say he was better when he was coached up by our DC.

Yeah, it's a stretch, and no, I wouldn't necessarily want Jason David.

It has been said before that Meeks uses his guys to the best of there talent. IDK what he is gonna do with our players cause IMO all 3 are Man CBs. You can argue Gamble but really he is just extremely talented and can play both. IMO fox will let Meeks do his thing and thats why he got a guy that has been a DC for so long and not a yes man.

He might end up back on the Browns where he was pretty solid.

So its like this

Browns likes aggressive CBs

Detroit likes Cover 2 CBs

Panthes like aggressive CBs but they like them to play in a Cover2 with them about 10 yards off the receiver.

ahhhhh see what I did there. :coolgleamA:

see what i did?

hopefully that will change with meeks, though.

I'm reminded of another fellow who looked good in one system but hasn't lived up to expectations since changing teams.

The fellow in question: Jason David.

The DC under whom he looked good enough to get a good free agent contract: Ron Meeks.

It's something to mull...

great point here.

If Marshall is expected to start, we'd either need a much higher pick than I anticipated for the corner position, or a veteran like this. Don't just give Marshall the job.

Yasinskas said in his chat that he believes Fox has already penciled in Marshall as next year's starter. Also said Fox believes C J Wilson is ready to take over the nickel job.

If he's right, we may not be devoting any significant effort to acquiring anything but depth in the secondary.
