nakamura not in the mix...florence a favorite?

Here is the bottom line.

1. With the cap hell that Hurney left, we were and still are very limited with what could happen in FA

2. Without a 3rd round pick, the first two picks were really the only place we were going to draft someone better than the young guys we currently have in the seconday....another 5th-6th round guy would not upgrade what we have.

3. With the way that the draft fell, Star and KK were absolutely the BPA and fit a HUGE need

4. A nasty pass rush will help our secondary significantly more than adding another late round guy to the mix

I for one am waiting to see how this unit performs on the field before makign any judgements.

BPA is cloudy...I think grabbing short was more if a precaution to ensure our DT spot improved. Draft one DT and you hope you improved but the bust rate is high....2 increases your odds you just gained talent to trend upwards.

4. We had the best pass rush last year....and QBs completed a higher percentage against is than any team. So talent simply has to improve

Great post man.  Our board is littered with people who really think we cannot compete because we didn't use a pick on a corner.  Gettleman said we didn't have a need, but Kiper said we did.  So on the Huddle, we were gonna die without a drafting a DB.  This is just like the draft pundits who gave us a bad grade.  Posters really believe that because we didn't draft some DB whose name they recognize or watched on Youtube, our GM should be fired.  We had no cap space and still brought in some competition.  We have talent on the roster and we will be fine.  I bet so many of these dudes are the guys who turn the cap off and put all the stars on one team on madden.

DJ is the only secondary player that can tackle in the open field, we need that guy at SS. there is no such thing as a nickel SS.

I said I mistaked Campbell for Moore.

And never say never. It will when it Happen. You can have a safety that plays like a nickle. Texas utilize Vaccaro that way at Texas. Don't be surprise if the Saints uses him that same way with Harper and Jenkins deep back.

I mean, in a nickel defense you swap out a LB for a DB. I guess the SS could come down and fill that role but that would defeat the purpose of the SS's assignment, and a waste of a matchup.

We need to hope for a Asante Samuel situation during training camp for some other team,and grab a decent corner for a 7th rounder next year.

Campbell and Mitchell are good tacklers. Mitchell slammed the hell our of Cam (late tho) last season. I wouldnt say many safties in the league could do that. Hell a lot of DLmen have trouble taking him down.

No, if Florence is starting for us week 1 that means hes won the job and has something left in the tank (which I think he does) people just don't fugging get how good our pass rush and run defense is going to be.

 

Like others have stated before, Packers when they won the SB had won of the worst pass defenses ever. Same with New England. If you don't have a stud secondary that doesn't mean you cant have a stud team.

 

Bucs have a lot better secondary than us, but I sure as fug bet we win more games this season

 

Their opponents had a 56 completion %, 3100 yards, 16 TDs, and 24 INTs. Pretty sure you're confusing the years.

lol don't worry about it.

 

for some reason i checked it a couple days ago just out of curiousity and there was a lot there. not sure what good it does, but there's a lot of it.

 

btw, i noticed that someone neg reps me every chance they get. not sure what i did to piss in their cheerios but i'm sure it was their fault for having their cheerios so close to where i pee.
