Did I miss something? Why isn't Louis Murphy on that depth chart?

DUH! Isn't it obvious, we are not planning on paying him when he becomes a free agent.Thank you KKL I can finally see the light.

Yeah it does seem smart. We are a fringe playoff team, we will play the best players. Next years free agents are irrelevant to playing time for this season. What don't you understand about that?

We still want to be on the Fringe after this year as well.

Well, after the season is over, I am starting a Bacarri Rambo thread forthwith, regardless of Martin, Godfrey and Nakamura.

I like the move if the depth chart is accurate. Glad somebody beat out Martin because he wasn't our long term answer. I hope though that we still do use Martin on 3rd and long, obvious passing situations just because that dude has some goddamn opportunistic hands when the ball is anywhere close to him.

Disappointed that it's looking like Reggie Smith won't make the team, I had high hopes for him, but I guess if the coaches like Nelson over him then that's the right call.

Hey, if you can do that, I want a William Gholston thread. Best DE in the country.

Per PFF he had the 77th best tackling efficiency rating out of the 88 Ss they rated. He had 18 missed tackles per PFF.

But that was bc of Captain our SS struggles tackling though, huh?

Your turn.

ROFL.. so what was Martin's rating?

oh thats right he was 82

Your turn.

Per PFF (since that's your defacto source)

This is not the first season that Carolina’s Sherrod Martin has featured in the lower end of the table. In 2010 Martin missed a tackle every 6.8 attempts and this season he was even worse, missing one in every 4.5

This was inevitable, I too thought that Smith would be the one to dethrone Martin.

I also second the motion of reviving his career and trying him at corner, though this isn't madden unfortunately...

Still a hell of a special teamer, which happens to be our weakest link, so you kinda gotta root the guy on. He's a Panther.

Word. Sherrod has looked good on coverage units. So far in both preseason games it looks like they are going to break one on us but Martin comes in with a big hit. Now I don't know where that tackling ability was last year at FS, but he doesn't seem too bad as a special teamer.

I thought he started the both games so far... I've seen Martin on ST a lot and playing great. Reggie Smith laid a huge lick on a guy late in the game the other night but I actually thought he took the worst of it and was surprised he got back up... Problem is, it was REALLY late in the game. IIRC, Smith was playing with the 3rd stringers, so yeah, really disappointed in him so far, but hoping he's just working through things... His experience, versatility, and depth could be invaluable to us as the season goes on.

Hard to tell how well Nakamura is doing so far because there isn't any game planning so everyone is just winging it... And in those situations, offense should always have the advantage - especially in the passing game. So, it's hard to tell who is doing what and how they are doing it back in the secondary in preseason. From all accounts from Ravens fans, he's an extremely heady player and has more ability than you would guess at first sight. He also seems to be well-liked and trusted by the guys here so far from what I've seen in games and read in articles.

I'm confident that we will be MUCH improved on defense and overall this season - as long as McDermott doesn't go full retard with his ABC blitzes.

They couldn't afford him because they choose to pay Morgan. They couldn't pay them both. So we let Spoon go.

spoon left a good OLB contract, to be overpaid as less than average MLB.

Get your facts straight.

We were talking about Godfrey....so your defense of why Godfrey doesn't suck is that Martin sucks?

He asked for evidence of Godfrey sucking at tackling. I gave some. He ignored it and you counter with Martin sucked. Yes, Martin sucked last year. Your point in bringing that up as a Godfrey defense?
