There's probably been a thread on this already, but I'll ask again; do you guys reeeeally think Ray Rhodes' job is just to coach up the DBs?? Or is he a defacto assistant DC?

Me thinks that some of you are also forgetting that the reason the D didnt blitz much the first year was because they were just transitioning from a 3-4 and still trying to get the system down. Last year the secondary was so beat up that they couldnt afford to rush LB's and leave bigger holes in coverage.

Even so, dont expect much blitzing from this team no matter who the DC is. Kubiak wants most of the pressure to come from the front 4 with an occasional blitz.

That's a good point about the transition from 3-4 to 4-3 the first year.

And you're right that Kubes wants a D where we can get pressure from the front 4. He's said that many times. The first couple of games last year, we only blitzed on a few rare occasions. As the year went on, we blitzed more and more and we played less and less zone as the year went on.

I was really looking forward to our defense last year because over the last 13 games of the previous year, the defense had really performed pretty well for the most part. The injuries really killed us. But ultimately, injuries or not, we just didn't get it done last year.

You jackass thunderkiss. the thing that manning does is get rid of the ball in 2.5 seconds.

Looks like another serf falling on his sword for the franchise & the king. We're running Petie Faggins back there in the back seven, we ain't blitzing. I fuggered that one out.

Given Ray's health issues, I doubt he is a DC in waiting. However, he will have a lot of influence due to his level of experience as a DC which is what Smith is lacking. I see Rhodes as a support system for Smith, but not his replacement.

That works for me.
Is anyone besides me worried that Richard Smith will be the one talking to DeMeco on the field? Please let it be Rhodes and not Smith.

Not saying.

['Big Nickel' is getting bigger
Speaking of Tyrell Johnson, there is a growing desire in the NFL for defenses to play more "Big Nickel" defense. You often hear about teams substituting a corner for a linebacker when their opponent sends in an extra wide receiver. Nickel defense is still a very critical part of any NFL defense, but -- with the large influx of athletic tight ends that present a vertical threat in the passing game but also handle a 5-foot-9, 190-pound nickel corner in the running game -- teams are looking to develop a three-safety package.
just saying. We carry lot of SS types.
