The Block punt happened because the Bucs overloaded on one side and we didn't adjust.

This, if you're being honest about what happened and not trying to prove a point.

As far as Naka at FS IMO he's best used in the base defense inside the 20's and obviously on ST's, but in-between the 20's I think Martin offers more flexibilty he can cover, and run, as well as play the ball at it's highpoint (Naka's 5'10, he looks like the Munnerlyn of our S's). we look to have a little more pass rush this year. I'd think that would do him some good.

Either way we got things turned around last year, but I'd imagine we only had so much of a game-plan vs the Buccs because it looked like an ENTIRELY different defensive scheme, combined with a lack of power running from us (as it seemed everything was out of the gun) their line continued to penetrate get a push and was never given a reason to slow down by us. Chud has got to establish the run first to make DL's play honestly. Williams' six carries is not enough especially in a game the was always close and winnable.

because safeties do more in coverage than run 60 yards down the field... blatant holes in the zone where Nakamura looked flat-footed with a 10 yard cushion instead of breaking on routes at ~20 yards..

I know, but as long as the safeties aren't sticking out like a sore thumb like last year, can't complain about too much, no big plays given up

I still don't see why he was just given the job.

It's pitiful people dismissed Laron Landry simply because he has a built name. Sure would've liked a player like that out on the field yesterday.

Hate to say it but wish we could have drafted a top safetyast year. Mark barron's breakup on the newton pass to Murphy saved them from us scoring and possibly winning. We need a real safety ASAP

Barron was off the board and Carolina had him rated ahead of Luke. So they couldn't of drafted him....they would have had to trade up and given up picks. Even then they would have had to find a trading partner.

So no, it isn't fair to say they could of drafted him

Not sure what we were thinking going in to the season with him as a starter. You cannot compete in the NFL when you have so many positions filled with fringe NFL players.

Bright side is we have the best backfield in the NFL. Right? If Stewart goes down we can just pound it down their throats with Williams and Tolbert. We take great pride in investing their more than any team in the NFL per Hurney......

Theyre safe ass offense never even went deep or attacked our safeties at all, how can you guys really judge how nakamura played?

Because if he is in the box, they shouldn't have been making all those plays underneath or 3-4 yards a pop on runs.

Ever since Minter retired, we have lacked a physical presence at safety, and our defense is softer for it.

I dont get it, the db's suck and the safety sucks, yet Josh Freeman only passed for 134 yards and 1 TD. most of which came in the first half. This is ridiculous. Secondary played a very nice game. Exactly wtf do u guys want?

The reason Nakamura is starting on this team and will be all year is because of Jerry Richardson. He blatantly called out Sherod Martin in an exclusive interview with Tom Sorensen and the Observer last year, when Sorensen asked him what he thought of Martin, Richardson responded with he is #23 and He plays safety that's about all I have to say about him. LOL So since your owner dislikes a player your GM goes out and signs a less talented player (Nakamura) to replace said player (Martin). So truth be told just like all of us on the Huddle already knew Richardson does have a major say in personel decisions despite what he says, or what type of hands off owner image he wants to portray! I love JR, but when it comes to personel he is the oppisiotte crapier version of Jerry Jones as an owner. Instead of making dumb decisions to try and make his team better, he makes selfish decisions because he holds vendetta's against certain players for dumb reasons making our team worse in the process. The best ownerss always have been and always will be the ones that let their GM's make personel decisions and there coaches coach (With maybe Bllicheat up in New England being the one major hall of fame exception)!

Holy poo you made a pretty good argument. After reading this I'm not too upset with our defense.
