We are down to our 5th safety. Why is Godfrey playing FS instead of SS? Because he understands the schemes and coverages and the FS is the guy who controls the secondary playing calling. Kuechly controls the front 7 and calls the line and linebacker coverage but the FS is the one who makes sure the defensive backs are lined up correctly and makes up for someone being out of position.

You guys haven't heard? Everybody's team has the worst safeties in the league.

Reading through this thread i have come to the conclusion that exactly zero of you have any clue what the difference between a FS and SS is. Its more complicated than, one roams and one hits. Godfrey belongs at FS and Campbell is a more natural SS. We could actually run a bit of cover 1, cover 3, and cover 5 with campbell in there.


googled it

I always liked the idea if moving Godfrey back to FS. We need to go Matt Elam in the Draft and let Godfrey roam the field.

Phillip Rivers + Godfrey at FS = a couple deep passing TDs.

CBs will think he has help and Godfrey will come along 2-3 steps late.

Worth a look


My exact thoughts. For a long while I had defended Godfrey from the typical Huddle Hate, but after last season i just couldn't keep defending the missed tackles and busted assignments. However, if he looks comfortable (or lucky like his Pro Bowl season) and Campbell turns out to be solid that would be great. I remember reading somewhere that another head coach had said that we I got an absolute steal when we drafted Campbell

That's what I'm scared of with DX coming on so strong as of late. Really hoping Hardy and CJ step it up and Dwan is playing.
