So about that secondary

The 2nd and 3rd string secondary was getting torched, but 1st string fought to a draw or even slightly ahead. Smitty's overselling it.

Smith said the WRs have been owning the secondary the past 4 practices. If they continue it, "it'll be 11 straight days of tappin' it."
12:39pm - 5 Aug 13

Is he counting passes when the qb would have been sacked?

 

Technically, when a perceived weakness faces another perceived weakness, something has to give.   Remenber that Smitty is not an objective source--he is probably responding to some heated trash talking and sending a message to the DBs.

Been saying it for 3 years and people still act shocked when they hear a report saying the unit isn't very good

Golly Gee Willakers, people.  The secondary is much improved.   No, it is not perfect, but I see upgrades at 3 spots--FS (considering Godfrey replaced Nakamura), SS (considering Mitchell replaced Godfrey and is beating out Campbell) and CB (Florence over Dockery/Norman/Thomas).  Last year, Thomas and Norman started. 

 

If we improve at a position from a 7-9 team, then that is all you can ask.

Keep in mind that in training camp the receivers have a few extra seconds to get open and make the catch. The best DB's in the league cannot cover guys that long.

 

A word of caution about evaluating CB's when the QB is in no danger of being sacked or hurried.

That Idea just flew over idiots head. Not to mention Mike Mitchell can't light people up like he wants to do.

Didn't s.s say the wr's wasn't impressive in ota's. Didn't every body in talk about how the defense is ahead of the offense early in training camp?

Don't trust that secondary until i see it....if that d-line has gotten that much better then that should lift some pressure off them.
