When you take a defensive back at this point, you want a guy who can contribute on special teams. While they are learning the system they need to contribute on special teams. We feel Ceandris has those capabilities. We like for our guys to be able to play either way. If you look at Glenn Earl, Jammal Lord, and the young guys we have in the secondary, they have the size and speed that allows them to play either side. As you look at our secondary, we have a young secondary with exception of Marcus Coleman who is coming back at 31 years of age. We have some players that we think are ascending and still learning the system. Of course two starters in our secondary were rookies last season. We have also added Phillip Buchanon, who is young. Ceandris is going to fit in well with that group. It is exciting to have these young ascending players.”

I will be very disappointed if Glenn is gone.

how many crappy changes can one team possibly make in one Offseason? Is CC going crazy or something?

I'm fine with most all the changes. I think everyone crying and whining are going to look foolish when we strap them up. What are you yearning for anyway? One of the worst defenses in the NFL? If it's broke, I say fix it.

I think there may end up being more mental mistakes, and we may give up more big plays throughout the season, but I'm OK with the changes as well.
This D will not be a sit back and let the play come to them kind of D. With the upgraded speed, this D will be coming from all angles. I get the feeling that they are really going to be cut loose this year. Peek looks like a lock to start, but if not he should get a whole lot more playing time. Buchanan and Greenwood add to the overall team speed as well. Man, it may look ugly from time to time... especially early in the season, but it is going to be F. U. N. to watch! I, for one, am completely stoked!

AG is a fine corner, but he is getting older. There is nothing personel about winning , or business. (NE proves that every year by releasing players) I know there are some guys saying that the P-buc trade was not a good move, I like the pick-up....... is there such a thing with TOO many good CB's? As far as our D goes, it's looking good. We are getting younger, faster, and that will allow us to do more things. At first I was upset about the pass on DJ, but after I got out of my "Homer " mode, the TJ pick is starting to make sense. Many posts during the off season state we need to work on our D and O lines, we did that and certain fans are calling for heads to roll. If I remember right..........Sounds like last year?(About not moving up for ST) I didn't hear too much when D-rob almost and should have won the DROY. I have no doubt that DJ will be a good player, but we need to draft the needs of our team. I believe we did that. Good job CC.

Vinny do me a favor and step back away from the picture. Pretend you are a fan/scout of another team.

Now what kind of defense do you see next year with the following:
Robaire, Payne, Walker
Babin, Wong, Greenwood, Peek
Dunta,(whoever starts/rotates), Coleman, Buchanon


Do you see us stopping the run effectively? Do you see us being a top 15 defense? Do you see us as a bottom 10 defense?

What strengths do we really have? Do we even have a top 25 player in the league on defense?

Quit worrying on how everything looks on paper...On paper, the Chargers were supposed to go 4-12 last season...On paper, the Redskins should've been in the playoffs...On paper, the Cowboys should've finished better than 6-10...Wait until you see how they actually play together in this system before you pass judgement on them...

Chargers lucked out that a basketball player and Brees performed. Along with Foley

The cowboys had no QB, and no runningback for the majority of the year.

If you are basing our chances on luck, then our chances arent good on defense.

No problem... This is actually fairly easy.

Ray Lewis
Derrick Brooks
Lavar Arrington
Takeo Spikes
Dwight Freeney
Simeon Rice
Julius Peppers
Terrel Suggs
Jevon Kearse
Joey Porter
La'roi Glover
Roy Williams
Ed Reed
Zach Thomas
K. Gbaja-Biamila
Jason Taylor
John Abraham
James Farrior
Tedy Bruschi
Troy Palamalu
Chris McAllister
Champ Bailey
Marcus Stroud
Richard Seymour
Patrick Kerney
Casey Hampton
Shaun Rogers
Keith Brooking
Jeremiah Trotter
Brian Dawkins
Dan Morgan

That is more than 25. I would rather have all 25 of these players over Dunta for one year. Obviously not for the future, because Dunta will be in this class in a couple of years, but for this year I would take all of the above.

No kidding there. Some would say if it ain't broke, fix it til it is.LOL
We'll live without AG and might possibly thrive. I'd like to keep him 1 more year, but business is business and lifespan in the NFL is short. 33 is getting old. He's been a fine, upstanding player for us and I wish him the best, regardless of what happens.

Taken a drug test lately?? I've read your list, and it has some great players on it. DROB should ALREADY be on that list. He was roughed up early in the year, but really put it the other guys after that. I WOULD, however, take ANY of those on your list over any of our DL from last year.

Zach Thomas: Age 31: Stats: 145 Tackles.... This may be a stretch in some regards, but I love a run stuffing Linebacker.

KGB: Pro Bowler.... had 14 sacks last season and gets better every year.

James Farrior: Pro Bowler 95 tackles 3 sacks 3FF 4INT 12 Pass Defl.
