As a miami grad and lifelong skins fan he was my guy. Wear my number 21 every sunday ( sometimes my 44 ). God needed a safety.

If they can get pressure without having to send the house, then the LBs can drop into a zone and take away the underneath outlets, while the QB won't have time to go deep over our bum secondary.

But if we have to send the house to get pressure, we're in trouble. It's all up to Orakpo and Kerrigan (and the D Line) to hide the secondary problems.
They play a major part in the pass rush but the inside guys need to step it up as well. I think we have a good defense, but I'm not sure I see one that can dominate.

D Hall must be given some credit for putting his helmet in opposing ball carriers chests in the last two years. He has gotten alot more physical than he used to be. I would say he went from a below average tackler to an average tackler. He had a fairly good year (or alot better than previous years) last year. I'm not afraid to give him a little credit for getting a bit more physical.

This year, I expect him to be more improved as a tackler than last year. I guess they plan on putting him on the slot receiver some this year, due to Barnes inability to line up on the inside. With Hall being closer to the ball, I could see him snag a few more INT's this year as well. And with him playing under the umbrella, and closer to the line of scrimmage a little more frequently, he should have more tackles as opposed to previous years as well.

A safety like Sean comes along once every 100 years. Very few safeties in the NFL can play the way Sean played.

Madieu Williams plays (great) like a veteran in practice but, looks old come game time. He shouldn't make the final 53.

Re: Secondary a Primary Concern

Our secondary still sucks.

Hall gambles too much, Wilson is average. Our depth looks bad.

I think our secondary will still be better than it was last year. Thought Wilson and Tarnard Jax played great today. D Hall wasnt bad either...Crawford, Gomes are young and shown some promise.

Thought Jackson had a good game and maybe the best safety play we have seen all preseason. The nickel corner concerns me and so does the safety position. Can Jax play the free spot with BM playing SS?

Williams and Griffin I think we can all agree are liabilities on the field.

yeah, Jax at fs and BM at SS I think will be the starting safeties vs NO.
