Woe is me.

Anyhow, that's neither here nor there

Wait..... Haslett wasn't the first choice? Who was? What happened?

We started doing the podcast to get back some of that fun of just talking about the team. Fans thirst to get information first to discuss and tell all their friends will never let you post in peace smoot..gift and a curse.

I don't check PMS, eventually it will fill up and your box cant accept anymore
I guess so with the MODS so overwhelmed with parenting everyones comments and banning people. No wonder you never got your opinion across.

Re: Defensive Parts

Luck ain't afraid to kick a little ass. I like the guy. But I like our guy better. In a way, it gives me even more hope knowing that he has been doing what he has been doing being held back in a way. Optimism is very contagious, and even though I am down on Shanahan and the regime, I am very high on RG3, Almo and Perry Riley. I think all three of them are going to be absolute kick ass players, and Im glad they are on our team.

I wonder what happened to him. But the fact that the safeties are struggling I find it odd that the coaches won't put Gomes in there considering that he started most of last season.

Re: Defensive Parts

Well an app I have says the Washington Post is reporting the Skins tried out 3 Safties/CB's and 2 LB's. I don't. Are who they are at this point they should be equal to or greater then what we have now.

According to the Post none were signed as far as they know.

Aaron Rouse, Ricky Elmore, Kourtney Brown, Jaiqwuan Jarrett, J.L. Picard, Jerome Murphy

They need to add someone to the practice squad. Unless something happened during the week that I don't know about

Re: Defensive Parts

Does anyone think that these guys are real prospects, or just practice squad projects?

I assume that the J.L. Piccard reference was not real (although a reference to Next Generation fans everywhere). Don't know if there was anything else.

Thank you. You're awesome

And per wire reports, we signed former Pitt DB Buddy Jackson to the practice squad

Either way, it's not the precipitous decline some bellyache about. Looks pretty gradual to me. Given the fact we NEED big talent infusions at RT, and three of four secondary spots I don't think ILB should be a real priority given the limited resources we have.

Fletcher could also be helped significantly by a better scheme. He's still one of the top three pure MLBs in football.
We have the kid Robinson, all set to take over and one of the reasons he was drafted was his pass coverage, I would like to see him in more on the obvious passing downs to help take away the TE, because as much as I hate to admit it London has lost a step at least in pass defense he is still solid against the run.

They have to have some sort of talent. Just look at Andre Brown who was on our team last year off the practice squad and now he's having a good year with the NY Midgets.

Not nit-picking or being argumentative but I think the dig on London's pass coverage is a half-truth. The key is one-on-one coverage vs zone. London was never elite one-on-one and now being a tick slower he's actually a liability. But if you leave him covering the middle of the field London has shown (no surprise here) elite QB/play recognition and puts himself in position to break up passes and get a few interceptions. In other words one of his greatest talents, football IQ, is being minimized when he's forced into man coverage.
His talent/effectiveness is minimized anytime you take him away from the middle of the field. London should always be "covering" the middle of the field or blitzing, run or pass, because that is maximizing his skill level. Very similar to Urlacher actually, who's legs are much further gone than London's but the Bears scheme keeps him right in the middle and he's already got an INT this year. London, IMHO, is a superior MLB to Urlacher today, but our guy is playing way out of position.

...and it's so effing obvious, makes me want to throw my glass of scotch at the tv Hate this regime so much right now. If I was London I'd be demanding a trade, instead he just keeps quiet and plays his guts out (injured, btw). Wish I had that kind of character.
