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.
