USA Today: PFF ranked secondary 29th in 2018

Recommended Posts



Munnerlyn will be the backup if here at all. The solution is a free agent corner who can play man on the outside and bring Jackson into the slot. Replace Adams with a free agent  if Gaulden or Searcy can't do the job and sign Reid and bring in a legitimate secondary coach and suddenly the secondary is 10 fifteen or higher.

Reid was a bit too aggressive, reminded me a bit of Mike Mitchell, but the real liability was the lack of pressure up front and Adams/Munnerlyn. Donte got burnt a couple of times but you can't have a geriatric safety covering for him over the top. Keep Reid, Donte, and Bradberry, the rest of the secondary can go.

The one game I felt they did well was va New Orleans, shutting down Brees.  Here is hoping for draft and FA help which is what we need.

That's true. 

I think Reid is a more disciplined tackler than Mitchell, but not perfect. I believe both he and Donte could improve if just given better coaching. Bradberry simply needs consistency. I think it basically all comes down to coaching and whether or not they're disciplined in their fundamentals. The talent is there.

I'm curious to know where the defensive line is ranked.

Definitely seemed like there were times we had trouble getting pressure with our front four, but at the same time if teams are getting the ball out quick that is more on the secondary and/or scheme.

We definitely could use some upgrades at both but they probably view the line as having priority.  If Peppers is gone and with Addison getting older, not to mention the DTs getting older, you could see the line regressing more.  On the other had, in the secondary Jackson should be better, Bradberry is still young, also Cockrell could be back and could definitely help.

We definitely have plenty of needs.  You could easily make an argument for DE, DT, CB, and safety.

What's funny is if you looked at first and second down, our team was probably top 5 in the league. Too bad we were literally the worst 3rd down defense I've ever seen (*and redzone*). I'd like to see the amount of 3rd and 7+ that we gave up. It must be a record.

You can hide holes in your secondary with a strong d-line and a DC who knows what he’s doing ... we didn’t have either one

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
