If you think Doughty is "burnt toast" you have not watched much of Merriweather over the last 2 seasons.

I have no idea if he is a thug; but on the field, the only thing he does at an above average level is to make the highlight reel hit.


His specialty is on third and 13 to clobber a receiver who had just caught a 14-yard pass...

Re: Redskins Sign S Brandon Meriweather

Between Doughty, Gomes and Meriweather which player would be the primary Cover 1/3 FS and which would be the in the box SS?

In Cover 1/3 I would play Meriweather at SS and Reed at Free.

i agree with meriweather at ss because of his physical play, BUT reed at free?? he cant cover any ground, hes always behind on plays and gets there late, hes a sure tackler thats about it. i was hoping for reggie nelson at free but now im not so sure maybe the draft?

I agree with not trusting Reed as anything but a role player....Our other options are equally as scary though.
I was hoping we would give LaRon one more chance to stay healthy

I still remember seeing him in his first preseason game running behind the reciever getting beat for a touchdown. Still doing the same thing. He is a best an average SS.

Word for word, that is exactly what I think just happened: they let him go, and didn't really have a plan.

Unless "have the best Redskins offense since the Norv days" counts as a plan.

Laron has missed like 15 games over the last 2 seasons, and didnt get the surgery recommended by the medical staff. Bye bye, I know Reed is garbage, but he has been in there the past 2 seasons a lot so what's one more season of him playing.

Reed played a ton of snaps last year 680 out of 1056, which was the second most after Atogwe at 699.
I'm sure Reed spent some time playing both FS and SS, many people forget that Reed played FS last few games of the 2010 season when LaRon was moved to SS.

But, with that being said ideally it would be better if Meriweather could play
the Cover 1/3 FS because of his greater speed and range.
But my worry would be his lack of discipline to be the last line of defense in the run game or in the pass game.
Also, I would be concerned about his knowledge of the scheme, in many defenses the FS position is the leadership role and is reponsible for communicating the w/ the MLB for coverage audibles.

I guess we're all hoping that either another FS is brought on board or that Meriweather gets his head on straight and really takes ownership of the FS position which would allow Reed to play move SS.

Re: Draft
Which S do you like in the draft?
I like Harrision Smith, Markelle Martin, Aaron Henry and Trenton Robinson

The only plan I can see that would make sense in letting go the two best (in their prime at least) safeties on the roster is trying to get the youngest and healthiest players available.
It makes sense in the long term, but could send us backtracking this season.
