Didn't we use Godfrey as a nickel CB last year? If we can get one corner to step up...we could go that route..we would need Godfrey to step up his tackling and play recognition ability.

CB: Gamble, Hogan/Butler
Nickle CB: Godfrey
Safety: Smith/Martin/Nakamura
Safety: Nakamura/Martin/Smith

Drives where they were in that package were almost guaranteed TDs, because Jordan Pugh came in for Godfrey, and he was literally the worst DB in NFL history.

Should work much better with one of the FA signings there instead.

That may be true this year, but last year they passed on Carlos Rogers because "There isn't anything available in free agency that we don't already have with Munnerlyn."

Then he made the Pro Bowl.

This is not true.


We were interested in him and I remember Gantt or Reed saying we would have gotten him if it wasn't for San Francisco. Can't sign 'em all.

If you need an article to tell you defenses are playing more nickle and dime, you haven't watched football in the last 5 years.
