I could see us signing Lynch. Im still wondering what the decision with T Jax.

Smoot said he was still in the mix right after he came back from his sabbatical...or was that a walkabout...anyways FS is still a decision that will need to be made before the coming season.

So, defending our NFC East crown isn't important.. We are still developing rookies and throwing them out week 1 to "develop"

I think it's more important to start the best players and allow the younger ones to build confidence in to a starting role. You throw Amerson out early and he gets burned and loses confidence in his ability and it could get worse. Remember, this guy is coming off his worse season on the college level.

So we should have sat RGIII last year and went with Grossman?

Its more-so for flexibility (Jammer can play CB and S), the fact that Jammer and Meriweather aren't playing special teams and the fact that Rob Jackson will be suspended so that's one spot open (maybe 5 spots with RG3, Helu, Fred Davis, Carriker, Meriweather) if they end up on the PUP list

The thing with Lynch is that he can play FS and SS and special teams. Jammer isn't a STer, and is more expensive (hell, he may not even be a SS).

I think he's still in the mix, I don't know if he actually is

Re: Secondary is a Primary

If Amerson has a decent camp he should start.
I say he'll be better than Hall.

Gotcha
Speaking of Rex, I vote to cut him and sign Tebow as #3QB and gimmick player. Let him take a few of Robert's hits.

Seriously, on option plays, he could actually do some damage in our offense alongside Griffin.

True, Rex COULD actually guide us to a few wins, especially with our upgraded defense, but if we lose Griffin and Cousins...we're in trouble no matter who the #3 is. The chances of losing both of those guys is not big though, so why not have a #3 QB who can actually contribute weekly AND would be a perfect fit for the new offense, unlike Rex.

Wouldn't that be crazy...Rex wins the SB for us after Griffin and Cousins get us there?

Re: Secondary is a Primary

Tebow brings too much drama/baggage. I'd pass.

Re: Secondary is a Primary

Ehh who cares. Griffin brings in the reporters too and we can handle it fine.


If we lose games because of what idiots write in newspapers and say on ESPN, we don't deserve to win.

He and Griffin are basically the same person OFF the field with their religious and political beliefs yet one gets hated for what he believes in.


Heard on NFLN this morning that New England is considering Tebow. He wouldn't fit there. Running the option 3 times a game won't work, ask the Jets. Here, we already have the perfect scheme in place for him.

This is the attitude I don't get...looking at his personality and beliefs before what he does on the field. None of the media talk/hype/obsession is his fault. Robert's an outspoken, open Christian and Conservative and no one in the media focuses on that. Tebow's nowhere near the QB that Griffin is BUT he is a great all-around athlete with a drive to win. He could help us more than he could help any other team in the league.

Just watch, Seattle will take a chance on him and beat us in the playoffs again, with Tebow's help.

Re: Secondary is a Primary

i agree. bring in tebow as cheap as possible and define his role from day 1.
then the media circus of will he start will he play is over...

he can be the LOZO equivalent to the offensive side of the ball

Re: Secondary is a Primary

I think Tanard Jackson will be back and I think he will start at free safety for us. The guy can play, makes plays and has a nose for the ball. His problems are off the field, I think he will be back and starting.

Much much better than Madieu, our corners suffered from having madieu and reed at safety, whoever the safeties will be, I think our coverage will be much better overall whoever is back there. I think the starter at Free will be Madieu or Rambo with Merriweater at Strong.

Being that we were so limited in FA because of the penalty, he is our best option at FS imo. Bring the young guys along, hell Rambo and Thomas probably could challenge Merriweather at SS.
