I thought it was his best position coming out of college (since he was a CB as well) But Martin was the worst tackler out of the 2 so they had to have him at the SS.

Godfrey was moved to free safety at the end of last season.  The position change apparently improved his play.  The competition at strong safety is between veteran FA Mike Mitchell, second year pro DJ Campbell, and undrafted FA Robert Lester.  I actually like Mitchell to win the job but split time with the other two.  Nakamura backs up Godfrey although maybe he gets cut.

 

I'm saying it right now.

 

Naka doesn't make the team unless injuries destroy the Safety position. Moore will be the back-up at FS and if Lester can play special teams. Colin and Naka could be gone. They are only keeping 9 players in the secondary. And the numbers don't work out well for Naka.

Its funny that we've heard absolutely zero about Naka in the offseason so far. Its like he doesn't exist. That says a lot. He's as good as gone.

Offseason coachspeak. He will be the same up and down player he's always been. Not bad enough to replace, not good enough to get excited over.

You can always be a falcon fan Moon. Or you can join the Raiders, Jags, or Jets fan base. And be a pessimist there. You can spew all your crap and feel right at home.

No one is more volatile than a football player with a chip on his shoulder. Naka took last year pretty hard but considering he's still on the team, it seems like they are willing to give him a second chance. He can either put last year behind him and improve immensely or let it eat at him and lose his final opportunity.

Dude the numbers game is working against him. When Godfrey was moved to FS and they signed DJ Moore and Captain back it was over for him.. He almost has to be perfect to keep a roster spot.

 

Right now he could be deeply down on the depth chart.

oh, I agree it's a longshot. But he still signed with the team once again (albeit, with a paycut) despite the horrendous season and multiple blunders. He easily could have been cut after the first Falcons game.

 

Naka hasn't made any noise in OTAs and Mini Camp which doesn't support his chances, but those are done in shorts and T-shirt. He's still on the team at this point and anything can happen in TC. His chances are low, yes, but the odds are better than what they probably should've been.

Oh, my bad. 

 

Godfrey is the best safety in the league and will be a pro-bowler. Say hello to the new Ed Reed. Anything less than 19-0 from the Panthers this year would be a huge upset. 

 

Is that better? Or can I stay in reality and let you enjoy your fairytale world? Godfrey is an average player- there's nothing wrong with that and that hardly makes me a pessimist.
