wow, the entire secondary looked bad last year because we had no pass rush at all. you give a qb all day to throw, he will pick you apart. Godfrey may not be as good as people may want, but last year was not all his fault.


Regardless of pass rush you can tell that anybody but Gamble isn't starter material in the secondary. Some better than others.

Yes, a pass rush helps the secondary but plenty of times Munnerlyn would get beat before a pass rush would ever be able to develop.

You can still evaluate players without being surrounded by a perfect defense.

he doesn't have the instincts or tackling ability to play S, imo. sure he jacks up a little receiver(like welker that one time, loved that one) from time to time... but if the ball carrier has any kind of moves or running power... godfrey is going to get embarassed


Godfrey is pretty good in run defense. I don't see much wrong with his instincts.

I just dont understand the purpose of soft zone coverage that allows 15 yds a play

Yeah that makes no sense especially for our secondary who cant seem to stay with players. So you give them more cushion to make more moves in space.

I'd rather them play tight (even though they will inevitable be beat) and have the QB make a play over the top.

Im gonna say the success of this season may depend on if we can somehow get some turnovers. It's looking like we won't be able to force punts

i have confidence in gamble to play tight press coverage and stay with his man.... because he has the size and speed to do so.

munnerlyn will get bullied tho

Our safety situation is good. We will have on of the worst secondaries again. Another draft will roll around where we will have to address safety and Dline. I hope we actually address them.

Yeah Munnerlyn gets beat regardless. If he sees the field put him in nickel where he isn't as isolated and can use his physical play.

I was hoping that Nakamura and Smith would be our starting safeties this year. Not because I thought they'd be so great, but because I knew that what we already had was so terrible.


I think we have a mindstate that the free agents that we bring in will have an impact, when in all honesty there have been less that 10 at most free agents brought in during Hurney's tenure that have made significant contributions as starters to this team. It just never happens. It's draft or nothing for the Panthers and it's annoying sometimes.

yea which means u have to leave a safety deep regardless, unless u trust cpt or one of those young guys to be on an island(i dont).. the deep safety was primarily martin if i remember correctly, and he didnt do it too well. maybe they should try haruki??

Rambo


Rambo is good, but he has issues off the field. In the 2nd? Yes. Also think he's suspended for the first couple games.

But if we have a chance at a Eric Reid or McDonald why should we think twice bout taking them. Jefferson and Lester are the next two behind them. If all the safeties that are projected to come out next year do come out, it's a great Safeties class.

You still have guys like Matt Elam, Vacarro, Rambo, Ray Ray Armstrong with the guys above.

I said this once, I'll say it again. I knoe people tends to say that the a good pass rush helps the secondary, but I tend to believe "a good secondary helps the pass rush".
