Nakurmara

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.

Martin should be starting. Nak was brought in to bring a toughness to our defense, (evidently if you've played for the Ravens secondary you are automatically a Ed Reed/ray Lewis clone). There's a reason Baltimore didn't want him and the rest of the AFC North fans were calling us dummies for thinking he is a starting free safety... Let him play ST and bottle up all that "toughness" for kickoffs and punt returns.

You've got to expect Nakamura to go through some growing pains, he has very little starting experience.

With that being said, I think he did OK.

He only looked "ok" because we went up aginst a coach whose game plan was to beat us using "Fox" ball, there was holes all through that zone yesterday just wait until we face the Romos and Julio Jones of the world this season we're in trouble.

As badly as i wanted someone, anyone to replace Martin, Nakamura was MUCH worse! Bring Back Martin! He might have missed the gunner who blocked the punt, but at least he's NOT comatose to the point of not even looking in that direction. Specators we don't need!
