It wasnt bad at the end of the season. It was only terrible when Naka was starting.

With our front 7 you could put my sister out there and we would be fine

On PAPER it doesn't look great but that's why we play the game. I'm a huge fan of Thomas and Campbell. I'm optimistic. No reason to get down and read into the future without seeing what we really have. In the games that Thomas/Campbell played and started, we played great. Who knows. Let the kids play.

That's awesome news! Five of the six worst secondaries of all time went to the playoffs, and one went to the Super Bowl! The two worst ever were the 2011 Packers and Patriots!

Seriously, people, get a grip.

It isnt like they played bad last year or didnt play at all.

They played and played average - good.

No need to be worried until given a reason to.

I don't think any aspect of our defense will ever be historically bad with Ron Rivera as coach.

It won't be as bad as the Saints' was last year if for no other reason than because we have such a dominant front 7 and their front 7 was about as bad as their back 4.

Rivera made a Chargers team with far less talent on the defensive side of the ball amongst the league's best. Gettleman is a straight shooter and believes the answers to our secondary woes are already on the roster. The way he has talked up Norman makes me cautiously optimistic about him. Godfrey might show significant improvement at his new position. Florence and DJ Moore force turnovers and I believe that is going to be an emphasis for this unit once again.

They were serviceable with a poor DT core last season. Now we have two monsters in the middle with two double-digit sack artists on the outside and The Kraken is in a contract year. The linebackers have the potential to be among the leads best if healthy and I am confident they will be even if Beason isn't quite at the level we are used to prior to his injury. Luke will lead this entire unit and I am confident this front seven can lead us to the promise land while a physical secondary should be good in run support and force plenty of turnovers thanks to the constant pressure up front.

Not saying we have the same pieces.. but Seattle took Sherman in the fifth round, Chansellor in the fifth round, Browner was UDFA and played in CFL and they have the best secondary in the NFL. I've got a weird gut feeling that Norman is going to be REALLY good and Thomas is going to be more than solid. Call it delusional.. but I like what we have.

Teams wont have 5 seconds to throw the ball next year. With our current CB crop they will get the job done. But with that said we are not done with improving the roster yet. Alot of veteran FA still out there.

We basically have last year's secondary + D.J. Moore and Drayton Florence at CB and Mike Mitchell (and potentially Robert Lester) at S. We finished in the top-10 in total defense with that group. No reason to think we can't improve on that with the upgrades to the DL.
