Anyone else think our secondary needs to play a lot better?

If not for the penalty on the tavon austin td and the drop on a sure td in the end zone, the STL game could of been easily a shootout.

I havent checked stats this week, but I doubt we lost anything in defensive rankings. Having said that we have a top 3 nfl d right now....I think they could be playing better sure, but our D, secondary included is only giving up around 13 points a game. fuging enjoy it.

Absolutely, but we knew that coming into the season. They've played well above their talent level and we really can't complain too much.

Our defense is cream of the crop in the NFL.  No defense plays perfect, sometimes they give up big plays.  We give up less big plays than most teams, so we are a good defense.  Bradford woulda been creamed if Long didn't trip him.  Expecting absolute perfection on defense and/or offense is unrealistic.  And cmon, Mitchell is making up for most of the secondary's poor plays.  Can't whine at them after they make up for it with a turnover.

None of our corners have speed.

Josh Thomas needs to play better and stop getting burnt. Teams are scheming to get him 1 on 1 on deep routes.

Pretty much this.  I can tolerate the occasional dinking and dunking that our team is famous for giving up, but Thomas has been giving up too many long plays especially if you count the plays that get called back because of penalties just get dropped.  Those don't hurt us as much against a team like the Rams, but when we're playing teams like the Saints and Patriots we can't rely on those bailout shortcomings of the opposing teams.

White looks promising, as does Norman. However, Josh Thomas looks really poor in man-to-man coverage. I would love us to draft Deion Belue in the mid-late rounds of this year's draft. He's not as good against the run, but he's not bad either and is awesome in man coverage.

I think we do need to get better to play against effective passing teams. There are couple of Qbs that will carve us up

When has Norman looked promising?

Norman only looks good in camp and preseason. He's always been hot garbage when the games actually count. I'm not quite ready to give up on him, but I'm getting close.

We will add a cb in the draft, but for now, White is showing promise.  Thank God for Gettlemen, or it would be worse.  Where would this group be without Mitchell, Mykell/Lester, White, Munnerlyn and Florence?  All were free agents.

 

Thomas and Nornan are concerning me---Thomas would be better on the #3 WR instead of drawing the #1 WR.

I know Oregon's secondary has been giving up big numbers but I like two of their CBs (Ifo and Terrence). Fuller and Dennard look like solid mid/late-round options too.

Depending on how the draft shakes out, ideally I'd like to see our first two picks consist of OT and WR. But I wouldn't be upset if a CB was taken if he was by far the BPA.
