Mitchell is a better version of Minter. Minter was a good SS, but struggled at FS.

without a doubt, this defense is better than in 03.

Watching Mike and Steve pump one another up on the sidelines you can tell that those guys are buddies and feed of each others emotion.

He has a one-year contract but I can't imagine we let him walk.

I agree completely. Minter played smarter but Mitchell has something special. Just curious has anyone noticed Mitchell's closing speed. It is unreal. He makes up for some of the lapses on our young defense. In my opinion, that has been one of the biggest differences. His athleticism is underrated. I am sure he will be one of the players Gettleman attempts to re-sign.

 

And he's a fantastic open-field tackler.  That seems to be rather uncommon in today's NFL.

He's a keeper. Probably my next jersey.

I love Minter, but based on what I've seen so far I would take Mitchell over him too... Mitchell isn't getting nearly enough credit for changing the attitude of our defense, we have a mean streak now that has been missing for a long time. Say what you want, but opponents are intimidated by a guy like Mitchell who brings the hammer down several times a game.

 

Ask Vernon Davis what it's like to be tackled by Mitchell...

Smith said he would take Mitchell right now because it's who he's got right now. 

 

It wouldn't take a ton to be equal to or better than Minter. We've not been blessed with great safeties over the years.
