Colin Jones anyone?

At Free Safety? I don't trust Martin at all. Besides Colin has that 4.3 speed that can let him keep up and get to a spot quickly.

Thoughts?

I would rather throw Martin back in there than some inexperienced, fast, ST player.

Didn't we just try putting a special team ace in the starting line up?

He's probably a "safety" in the same way that JJ Jansen is a "LB".

We'd likely be much better off with Martin or Nakamura. People watch those two and say, "hell, anything would be an improvement", but Jones is likely much worse than either Sherrod or Haruki.

Hey guys I know how to fix our number two receiver position. Armanti Edwards anyone? He was drafted in the 3rd so he should have some talent.

Thoughts?

Naka wasn't known for his speed, at least that from what I read. He was known for his 'sure' tackling. So far that's not true. I don't see Martin as an Improvement over Nakamura seeing that Martin can't tackle a person in a wheelchair.

Jones is a ST guy but I haven't seen him play the S position. I'd rather give him a shot than Martin, that's my point of view on it.

I've come to realize that the term "special teams ace" really means "not good enough to play my designated position". It's an overrated label.

How is it overrated?

It seems to be an appropriate name for a player that's only good at special teams.

I agree, but I think we need more than the six special team aces that we already have to keep up with the rest of the league.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
