How bad is our secondary?
 
Seriously, I'm asking those of you who look at film and analyze such things to clue in the rest of us: just how bad is our secondary?

I mean, we just made somebody named Danny Amendola look like Jerry Rice. For goodness sakes, he tied the all-time NFL record for receptions in one half against us! Danny Amendola!

What and/or who are the problems? Is it fixable with the current group of players? What do [U]you[/U] think the Skins should do to make it better and save my sanity?

Well you took a Center/Guard with your 3rd round pick who has been inactive the first 2 games of the season when we desperately needed a Right Tackle, Cornerback or Safety.

Should we just expect a complete zero from McRib, an early third round pick, this year? I cant get over the logic of that poor move.

Third round picks are not usually penciled in as day one starters.

Like I posted on another thread, I would like too see more Crawford, less Griffin.

yeah, but the are usually contributors in some sort of capacity. Their usually not in street cloths on the sidelines.

Re: How bad is our secondary?
 
This came up in the post game thread just now. IMO the team has had to address SO MANY facets of the talent pool on the roster that Secondary was the lowest priority when Shanahan took over. On paper this made sense in 2009.

I think the facts clearly display this. I would expect secondary to be the primary area of concern next off season.

To answer the thread. Very bad. Like I pointed out before everyone was suggesting that they switch to man coverage. Then the first play they go man they get burned deep for a TD. The quick 3 step drops were perfect to stop our pass rush.

Maybe theres something they can do with the scheme but at the very least we have to keep in mind the personnel they're working with is average at best. Then again the Steelers have made a living as a top 10 defense with an average secondary. In the end this league is all about getting a pass rush going, especially when it comes to defending the pass.

So you're certain a RT, CB, or Safety taken there would be contributing now?

We all knew that this was an issue and it can't be fixed until the off season. Josh Wilson is really the only guy we have that can cover. If anyone can remember Amendola got over on us the last time we play them.

it's one of the worst in the league, Hall is really the only decent player we have. Wilson always gets beat

I agree. Was Crawford even active yesterday?

Re: How bad is our secondary?
 
yeah Crawford played

How bad is the secondary?

Not as good as we thought after week 1, and probably not as bad as we are thinking right now.

I some capacity, yes. Even if on teams. Polumbus hasnt been good, CB has been a struggle (Crawford got snaps yesterday) and at safety M. Williams and Gomes are starters, nuff said there. Could I guarentee it, course not cause of injury but i expect a contributor with a relatively high 3rd round pick. We could use the help
