most are better than Godfrey as well.

or are you one of those guys who blames Lucas, then Marshall, and then have a new reason why he is consistantly such a horrible tackler in the open field. Yeah, he has potential....and if he gets to the reciever before he becomes a runner fumbles have occured but he is still one of the weakest S in the NFL if based off play (instead of potential)

yeah, we really need to upgrade both starting safety positions. no idea why they gave godfrey that extension, hopefully there's not a similar extension being worked out for martin but it wouldn't exactly surprise me.

and no, you are not a special snowflake whose thoughts deserve their own thread

surefire starting quality safeties aren't exactly the most available type of player. drafting safeties in any round tends to be very hit or miss as well.

if the guy is an upgrade then that makes him a starter. especially with the defense rivera/mcdermott run, very often there are 3 safeties on the field (remember how much that bastard pugh was out there?), thus he may end up being a huge upgrade over pugh at least at a nominal cost.

as bad as our safety play was last season, it will improve significantly just from having our LB corps back. gotta remember how much godfrey and martin had to play in the box to make up for our poor linebackers.

You are right about that.Every other replay on the NFL network shows Martin getting torched by someone.No wonder these receivers look so good.

    • Funny, but the thing I noticed was that he considered himself a fullback---(The Panthers are one of the few teams that used a FB...) when he had never played.  I am sure the Panthers told him that, but I wondered if that was HIS intent. I think this is another "Swiss Army knife" player.  He is a FB with TE experience.  Can he catch?  Can he slide out to a wing or even line up as a TE?  Throw him into an offense that has McCaffrey (who can catch passes) and Samuel (who can run the ball) and these three players are capable of lining up as TE/RB/WR, FB/WR/WR, TE/RB/RB, etc. I am not suggesting that he is going to line up as a TE as Olsen does, but Brockel or even Dickson Hbacking could be in the cards for him.
    • He has fumbled one single time. I don't think he's a lock. However if Fozzie is expendable then of the current guys I suppose he makes it.
