Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

They just said it on the halftime show of the Southern Miss/ UCF game, dont have a link...but hey, you can trust me.



I was really hoping he'd be back this week because we really need a guy on defense. I dont think the Jaguars have a great offense, but they can still score some points, and Springs could make a huge difference if in and healthy.

huh?

Anyways, I was hoping he'd be back this game, but apparantly not. I think we'll stop seeing so many big plays once Springs is back on the field. The question is, when is he gonna get back on the field?

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

Yeah, when he first got the injury I figured it wasn't something that would keep him out for a while, but apparantly it is. Springs is a huge part of our defense and it's pretty obvious our secondary needs him back there. I think we should definitely look at getting a cornerback in the draft or through free agency after this season, Springs can't stay healthy, and I would like to keep Kenny Wright as the nickel back instead of Springs' backup.

I am still trying to figure out why they rushed him back for the Texans game. This team really makes no sense sometimes.

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

I'd rather him sit and be 100% when he gets back. It is a physically stressful position and having him for say 10 games is better than 3 or 4 and then done for the year.

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

are we all in agreement that one player( s springs) is that big of a difference maker that our defense will change drastically? im not, i dont buy it. although i didnt think portis coming back would make that big of a difference. i was wrong on the that one

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

We really need CBs. I think that is the weakest link on the team. With the exception on kicking maybe

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

Huge difference. Because Springs isn't in there, we're weak in coverage, and everybody knows it, including our defensive players. So the defensive guys are on their heels, trying to figure out how they're going to have to help on passing plays. That means that a lot of guys are playing their position and a little bit of somebody else's. This impacts the aggression, and spontaneous reaction time increases. The latter can be fatal. In addition, some guys are responsible a lot more for coverage who just aren't good at it (AA). Springs makes everybody but the pass rushers immediately better. But then we can bring another person on the pass plays, and so the pass rush is better too. So I think Springs means more to this defense than Portis means to the offense. I don't think (on paper) we're that much worse than the defense from 2 years ago. I remember hearing that if we had scored 21 points each game that year, we would have gone 14-2.

We have the POTENTIAL for a tremendous year this year. We just have to wait for Springs to get back to see where we are. (And wait for the OL to wake up. I'm assuming you hold only when you get beat. So they were even getting beat regularly by the Texas DL. Yes, Brunell didn't get sacked and they had awesome yards/carry, but we've got to get stronger there.)

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

We definitely miss him in coverage, but his blitzing is probably the bigger issue. Neither Rogers nor Wrumph (the Wright/Rumph combo on the other side) has the speed, strength, or skill of Springs in a blitz package.

2004 Washington Redskins statistics - pro-football-reference.com

Wow - you're right! 13-2-1 (I assume Hall would have botched the game-winning field goal against Dallass in OT, and we would have tied ). The league average that year was 21.5 and the mean was 21. We scored 15/game.

We need Springs back. We need that nasty defense back.

Re: Springs Doubtful for Jaguars Game

There may be one positive in Springs being out is that other have to fill in and will/may improve over this 5 game span. We have gave up some big plays but the D has kepp us in all of our games and its been the lack of production from our O which has hurt us. I will admitt that Dallas did drop alot of balls but that was a game in which our D was on the field for alot of the game.
