Default Safety Help!!!!!

I was all for the young safties playing, but now I am all for trying to get some veteran to get back there and take command of the secondary. This is just pissing me off that we our guys do not have the experience that we need back there. Let the young guys learn from some proven vet. If we can't fnd anyone before Troy Vincent is able to play then i all for getting him. He may have lost a step or two, but he will know where he needs to be to make a play! Let the young guys learn from him.

Who are you thinking about here ? What's out there. Rick Smith drug up what was out there in camp. What we got is better than what is on the wiaver wire. You're correct in difining the problem. The only medicine I think is just time. We gotta ride it out. Unless, you advocating spending draft capitol now at the expense of the '07 draft. You wanna spend what looks like today top ten to fifteen picks on a vet to do what? The o-line is in a tail spin. The o-line isn't going to get any better this season. Nope just too many hole in this dyke to plug up. Just gotta ride it out. Hope they improve.

I'm just hoping they look like they have a clue. So far Can't Cover Brown and Glen Earl haven't shown any signs of that.

The Eagles game was a very winnable game until they were screwing up back there. Sadly it isn't because the other team made a heck of a play, it is because you continuously see them out of place because they don't know where they should be.

Im willing to ride it out but it is getting old. At least put in Jason Simmons.

The defensive secondary really needs some help. And it wasn't just that Peyton had loads of time, which he did, but rarely used. Peyton tended to zap away at his receivers. The Texans just weren't anywhere near them.

This has been building for over a year now. Houston has been content to stay with what they've had in the defensive secondary. It will burn them again this year. I hope when the opportunity arises, they add some talent and depth to the secondary.

Besides Dunta none of our other secondary players would be starters on other teams except out of desperation. Kubiak knows this, but what can he do? It's not like he can wave a magic wand and make bad players into even average ones.

Earl had a pretty good game. Led the team in tackles, had an endzone pick (nullified by his partner), and forced a goal line fumble to steal a TD from Indy.

However, CC Brown has no business playing at Free Safety. He's a Strong Safety and a complete liability in coverage. Given that the Free Safety is supposed to be the guy helping out with the receivers that are too hot for the corner to handle, that's a big problem.

I was kind of surprised when we took Daniels with Ko Simpson and Pat Watkins on the draft board. Granted, Daniels appears to be working out alright - even well, but our starting FS shouldn't be a backup at that position. Even Jason Simmons, one of our special teams headhunter's, has shown some coverage ability (that can-you-believe-it INT vs. McNabb). I'm not saying Simmons should be our starting FS ... just that we're that poor at the position.

I have been a G.Earl fan, but neither he or CC had a good game. In fact they were getting abused all game long. I know its not all their fault. They have to be put into a position to succeed so the coaches are partially at fault, but we really need secondary help.


I wish I knew how this could be fixed, but right now I have nothing. I just hope that through coaching they can get better. We cannot rebuild the whole team next year, and those that want to be here need to show it.

What about trying Dexter McCleon at safety. He is a little undersized but he hits like a linebacker. He isn't a great cover corner but he probobly has better coverage skills than any of our current safeties. From what i have seen, the transition from db to safety isn't that difficult. Marcus Coleman did it with descent success.

Unintentional I am sure but hilariously appropriate. Yes Coleman's descent was very marked once he moved to safety--I guess that is a successful descent.

Did anyone else catch C.C. Brown's quote that the 'skins have one of the best receiving corps in the league?

Yeah, he couldn't say "they suck" but I would have rather heard something like "we have our work cut out for us but we're up to the challenge" ....

Correction: the exact quote was "They probably have the best receiving corps in the league."

I expect results!!!We came into this season knowing we had the worst defensive coaches in the league but didn't replace them.We knew there system was flawed and they are poor talent evaluators but we let them cloud our minds.They actually said that the secondary was the strenth of the team but I haven't seen it.If this is there secondary they plan to use then all we can do is sit back and watch.

No,but think about it for a minute.We finished 31st in the league in pass defense.Its not to hard to see that what there doing isn't working.From the inside the picture is a lot different then what people see on the outside.All I see on the outside is a poorly prepared secondary that is being ate alive.We have given up more big plays then any team in the league.There trying to implement a 34 and 43 at the same time.They need to establish a solid base before they try to run 2 different systems.What I see is a better 43 team then a 34 team we've been waiting 4 years on.What we need is someone that can come in and take accountability for there actions on that side of the ball.We have to shake this loser.

I said from the start that if there plan didn't work they would be held accountable.

We want answers and improvement now!!!!

So which defensive coach, other than Hoke, needed to be replaced (and wasn't) in your opinion?
