Josh Wilson

He's the starting corner opposite Hall?
Is he a legit full time starting corner, or is he going to split some time with Barnes?
Seems like an experiment at that position.....I'm a little nervous.

Re: Josh Wilson

He was a full time starter last year in Baltimore. I think they brought him in to be a starter. He did not play very well in the Pitt game but that was to be expected to a certain extent, Barnes is probably pushing him with his play recently but Barnes is probably not going to overtake him this year.

Re: Josh Wilson

He has to gell and get a feel for playing with the safeties. It's difficult since the starters have been out. When you evaluate a corner, there needs to be an evaluation of the corner and safety in tandem.

Re: Josh Wilson

I kind of don't expect him to be better than Carlos, just a replacement -- that's fine though, Atogwe and Landry at the back should provide decent cover help

Re: Josh Wilson

gotta wait to really see him play. I think in general coverage he got a little to live up to compared to Carlos, but if he grab 4-5 interceptions that's huge. Im eager to see him play in the season

Re: Josh Wilson

What Haslett said about him is he was the best corner in the second half of the season for the ravens. I'm gonna just hope he picks up steam as the season goes on cause he just blew in pittsburgh.

Re: Josh Wilson

I think the DBs will be much better by the addition of Otogwe than Wilson. I think Wilson will be a fine corner and I'm glad we got him. Carlos was a good corner, but it seemed obvious that either he didn't want to be here or the team didn't want him here (I'm leaning more towards him not wanting to be here). I like that we got a guy that's a bit younger and he seemed to have performed well in Baltimore.

The key is to get the entire DB group (Hall, Landry, OJ, and Wilson) playing together. I think it may take sometime for that group to get it together, but I think there is enough talent for that to happen quickly. I also hope we have an improved pass rush that will help the DBs do their job.

Re: Josh Wilson

Considering their strengths, I think Josh Wilson may fit better than Rogers within Haslets defensive philosophy of emphasizing on forcing turnovers.

Re: Josh Wilson

Yeah -- he's kind of a wild card at the moment because it is his first season in this system, he only started 9 games in his only season with the Ravens so its tough to make a judgment on him. I hope he works out but I have a feeling with the improved front seven, the defensive backfield is going to have a lot more help in terms of getting interceptions and having to cover their guys for less time.

They both looked pretty rusty, but it was the first preseason game. I just hope the defensive backs as a whole unit prevents any big plays. This has been an issue with this area for the past couple of seasons. As I said before, I hope the addition of Atogwe helps out with this problem.

Re: Josh Wilson

I think Wilson will struggle this year and may lose his position to Kevin Barnes et al at some point as Haslett scrambles for scapegoats. But he's still young and I would bet optimistically on him justifying his contract over the next three years. He was really good last year.

Yeah, I think Atogwe will help against the vertical plays down the middle by staying in good position and keeping things in front of him. He won't make a lot of plays on the ball there, but if he can prevent touchdowns in that deep zone, he's helping.

I don't know if there's anything he can do if receivers like DeSean Jackson continue to get behind our corners in deep coverage. We just have to hope the line can get pressure on quarterbacks when the offense tries to go double move on the outside.
