Re: Brandon Meriweather Out 2-4 Weeks

Are Jackson and Meriweather difference makers?

opposed to our depth at safety, certainly yes. I think they are even more important when you start the season with instability at the 3rd corner position and D Hall coming off a bad season. Those CBs need a lil help, it was more likely to come from Meriweather and T Jax than M Williams, Gomes, and Reed. We saw the Reed, Gomes starter combo last year for several games, man that was horrible.

Reed will do exactly what Merriweather was going to do. Great run support, and average pass defense.

Our safety play this season won't be affected by who we put back there on our active roster at the moment. They are all above average to average.

Re: Brandon Meriweather Out 2-4 Weeks

Gomes actually played great this preseason. He's not that much of a difference maker but he's solid. It's too bad that Jackson and Meriweather are out, Jackson much worse. But Doughty is serviceable and we're learning about Bernstine and Madieu Williams is an experienced veteran. It's truly no different than last season with Landry and Atogwe.

Interesting. When we picked them up people just shrugged and said meh, they're "just guys". Now they're pro bowlers... potential difference makers. Not picking on you, just funny how perceptions can vary so greatly.

so true around here. As soon as someone gets hurt they were the potential difference between losing and winning on Sunday.

Look S position sucks for us the level of play from starter to PS is not that great. Anyone at that position could go down it won't make that big of difference because the next guy up is at about the same talent level as the guy he is replacing.

You can bust on Reed but some how he has stayed on the same team for a long time by NFL standards he must be doing something good. Merriweather and Jackson can't say that they are journey men.

Re: Brandon Meriweather Out 2-4 Weeks

I think the bottom line is

Merriweather, T Jax > Reed, M. Williams, Gomes

We are a most likely a stronger team with T Jax, Ferryweather in the lineup

Re: Brandon Meriweather Out 2-4 Weeks

Depth wise I understand the concern, I'm just not sure there's any significant drop off in talent/production.

Re: Brandon Meriweather Out 2-4 Weeks

I think the more disappointing thing is T Jax is a damn idiot and it especially hurts because he was lights out great in the preseason games.

I think a drop off from say average to below average is significant, especially in a fragile secondary where our CB play is already questionable.

I think the pressure falls now on M Williams to play well.

Re: Brandon Meriweather Out 2-4 Weeks

Even with Jackson and Merriweather our secondary was not very good. These guys are cast offs from other teams for various reasons. Merriweather was let go by a bad New England defense, benched by Chicago and then released. Does this happen to good football players? No. His Pro Bowl days or day is long gone.

we share the same thoughts on all your posts in this thread and I was wondering the exact same thing. When healthy this guy is elite. I would even pick him up if he has a chance to become healthy. We are in desperate need of playmakers at safety. I was comfortable with TJax and Merriweather. I just dont trust Gomes Doughty and company, Madiu is ok but i hope im wrong and they are ok but i think they will get torched. I have even tried to find next years top free agents at safety and in the draft lol but like i said i hope im wrong and we are ok there.
