Mr. Scot

If Mitchell and/or Mikell cannot be retained...

Recommended Posts



I would not keep Godfrey for 3 reasons:

1) He has never been very good. Just average.

2) He is expensive. Unless he's willing to take a serious pay cut, he won't be worth his cost.

3) Safety is a position requiring speed and agility. Coming off an achilles injury, he is not likely to have either of those attributes for another 12 months or so.

Godfrey will be gone.  I don't think it's even a question.  We could get 3 Godfrey's for what Hurney paid and save like 5.1 by releasing him.  

I agree he'll be gone as well. Solid player but hasn't shown elite skills in his career. We really need to get Mitchell back. He brings an attitude not many players have and although he needs to learn how to tackle a bit better, I think he was a great addition this offseason. Mikell was solid but nothing we can't replace.

Godfrey has to be gone. He is terrible in coverage. We need coverage guys.

Captain blew the coverage on the Boldin catch and tried to blame it on Lester

I've seen him do that multiple times. Captain just isn't a good CB. A good OLB sure. Not CB.

...how comfortable are you with leaning on Charles Godfrey again?

 

How does Robert Lester fit into the equation?

He doesn't.

I'm tired of all the CBs that are here just because they can tackle. We need CBs that can actually cover. You know...the main job for every CB in the league.

I think Lester has done a pretty good job while he's in. He's still got more to learn.

Godfrey takes a lot of crap, but he did switch from CB to Safety then had to play strong for lack of talent when he actually is a pretty good FS. The injury now is the tough part moving forward. If he restructured & healthy I would love to have him back at least until we can draft a quality replacement.

Not at all?

 

Lester was a good pickup for an UDFA, he made some contributions to the team this year.  He absolutely got exploited in the playoffs though, and he lacks athleticism.  I think we should absolutely resign Mitchell and Mikell. It's funny because Mikell quietly became a huge difference maker on our defense.  We fell apart after he got injured against San Fran.
