He earned the right to compete for a starting job. I don't expect Rivera to return and I expect a lot of jobs to be up for grabs - both safety spots among them.

He struggled agiasnt Atlanta and wasn't really tested agianst SD or OAK. Faring well agianst Brees would be impressive

He has been better in run support and overall tackling than Godfrey imo.

Leave Godfrey at FS and DJ at SS until someone better takes one or both of their jobs.

if he's left as the undisputed answer at the position we may as well just re-hire hurney.

i don't think he will be though. new GM will evaluate and make decisions based on what he sees.

Word, he should be allowed to compete, he has earned that. He seems to be very smart and confident with a lot of late drops into coverage and late dives into the trenches.

I for one can't wait for Nak to return to his former glory.

No one other than Gamble has earned the right to go in to camp as a "starter." Campbell has played well, but I suspect we will bring others in to compete.

It's a process and a new staff will evaluate things as we move forward.

    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula. 
    • Nice work on the weight loss!...thought you were gone???
    • I still think he's most valuable in a pass rushing specialist role and hopefully with the addition of Peppers and Hall we can largely keep him in that role. When he's fresh he's really hard for an OT to stay in front of. I expect him to play a bigger role thos season, but he played 434 snaps last year. Ideally, I don't want that number much over 500. For reference, CJ played 543 snaps and Ealy 623. Ajudted for snap count, Addison was by far our most productive DE.
