    After finishing the season with an 8-8-0 record in possibly one of the toughest divisions in the NFL, I am proud to say we are finally moving towards our ultimate goal: the playoffs and hopefully the Super Bowl.

    I am excited by the way Mario Williams has played and was wondering which guys you would like to bring in on defense?

    For me I am looking at Shawn Crable (6’5”, 241-Lbs, 4.65 40-yard dash). I think he could become a solid SAM linebacker for us and mesh well with Ryans.

    BTW, here is my early defensive depth chart:


    DE: Mario Williams

    DT: Amobi Okoye

    DT: Travis Johnson

    DE: Anthony Weaver (Maybe Calais Campbell?)

    OLB: Shawn Crable

    MLB: DeMeco Ryans

    OLB: Morlon Greenwood (Or Boss Bailey or Karlos Dansby)

    CB: Fred Bennett

    SS: Maybe (Kenny Phillips?)

    FS: Wil Demps or Boulaware

    CB: Dunta (If he can come back)

    1. Any reason you wrote our record with the 0 ties thing?

    2. Is that Q laying on the ground?

    3. Dunta's not gonna be back until at least October.

    I would like to see us land Briggs at LB, I think he is a UFA IIRC.

    As stated Dunta will not be back until at least mid-season. We REALLY need another quality CB.

    Is that really Quinn? He looks black. Maybe just my resolution.

    To keep this track on thread, I wouldnt mind drafting a CB then moving Dunta over to FS when he gets back...

    Agreed.

    I guess we know how bah feels about it now, lol.

    I don't mind it if it has to come to that, but I wouldn't ask for it.

    Definitely 3rd worst case scenario.

    Dunta probably would not be able to beef up the extra 15 - 30 pounds that would require him being a FS. If he were able to beef up, I seriously doubt that his agility wouldn't suffer (already has a horrific injury to his knee and hamstring) On top of that he never played FS, only SS and CB. All that added up, you get a lot of fans talking about moving a guy to a position he is too small for and has never played.

    Why would you do that? If he comes back from the injury and his quickness has taken a hit, then we may move him to SS, but my guess is we move him to a nickel type corner and go ahead and groom his replacement. I think of all the positions in the defensive secondary FS is the LEAST likely position he would play in the '08 or '09 seasons.

    That is what I think about this subject, now can we just let it die?

    Honestly, I think he'd be killed as a FS. Although he's a solid CB who's one of our best tacklers, he's closing from only 5-10 yards tops. Closing from 15 yards against a 225 lb. RB 20-30 times a game isn't what he's built for. He just doesn't carry the weight to be anything but a CB on defense.
