No, I give it at least 3 weeks into the regular season before he gets a start, and even then he wont be on the field every play.

Re: Sean Taylor at Free Safety and LaRon Landry at Strong Safety

I'd be surprised if Landry doesn't start the season as the starter. Yes, GW has a history of bringing his rookies along slowly, but Landry was a 4-year starter at LSU and is about NFL ready as you could want a rookie to be according to most scouting reports.

i agree with you 100% Matty. Just to add on GW already said that he wants to see Landry in there in week one, because the faster he and Sean mesh together the better.

Re: Sean Taylor at Free Safety and LaRon Landry at Strong Safety

Just guessing here about Rogers (and the scenario) but here goes:
Last year Williams was really worried about all the long plays. One of the changes he made was to move Rogers off the line. Because of Rogers' speed, he had NEVER played (10 miles) off the line before. So he was never comfortable out there. He had to switch from being an aggressive corner to a "passive" corner: don't let anyone get past you. I can easily see this getting you off your rhythm since the receiver is now dictating to you instead of you attacking the receiver.

He did a really nice job two years ago, and I still remember him jumping high to get an INT (not dropping it.)

Since he looked good two years ago, I think his play (as well as most of the defense) last year was a casualty of covering for the absence of Springs as well as Williams' modification of the defense for fear of being beaten by the "big play".

I would not be at all surprised to see him pick up from where he was at the end of '05.

First and foremost. G-dub has forgotten more about defense than the collective Warpath community knows.

Second, for those who think that Taylor has no coverage skills, look at his entire career at Miami (including a senior year with 10 ints) and his first two years here. I know it is tough for many to judge a body of work instead of last year, when he was the basically the only healthy guy who could tackle, but the facts are the facts.

Taylor would be a monster in center field. The wideouts will be more worried about him than catching the ball and he will be running ints back all season long.

Re: Sean Taylor at Free Safety and LaRon Landry at Strong Safety

does anyone think the skins would have drafted dline, if they knew what their safety situation would be like right now? bringing back a proven starter in Stoutmire gives them more flexibilty. and no, I'm not saying he is a better safety then Landry.

Probably not, because Joe Gibbs stated that they wanted to draft the best available player regardless of position and they had LAron Landry rated as their number one player then Gaines Adams (who was gone) then Jamaal Anderson, then Amobi Okoye so I dont think it would have mattered either way. I think LL would be a Redskin.
