Chill people. And I think our starters are meriweather and Rambo.
I agree. Thomas might not have started all year long. But let's also remember Meriweather basically didn't play last year, before that he was cut by both NE and Chicago.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Who's bugging out over the loss of Thomas exactly? I took it as we're just talking about the safety group.

I think everyone is just generally nervous about the safety situation.

With or without Thomas I get that.

But I don't think anyone is "freaking out" over Thomas as some have said.

If we lose Rambo, our safety positions are EXACTLY where they were last year with Doughty, Gomes, Pugh...is Bernstein healthy? Move Hall to FS with Amerson starting at CB?

I'm not panicking yet but don't kid yourself, this is a big loss.
Actually if we lose Rambo we also will not have our starter from last year M.Williams. Also Bernstine was waived by the Skins around the start of camp.

It's more so that a thread asking about our safeties happened to be made the next day after Thomas got injured. Slight panic reaction in my eyes. I'm not saying this in a distaste for the thread (it's a good thread) but there are people out there on the Internet radio etc who were panicking big time yesterday when Phillip got hurt. That and this thread along with other posts, tweets, voices etc made me post that.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

is rambo really starter ready? I havent followed camp hard but ... idk about a rookie starting the season. i would defer to haslett.

i would like to see a healthy merriweather and ______________. if it has to be reed, im okay with it. if its rambo, that means he earned it and im okay with it. if they dont think rambo will take over the starting job by the mid-point of the season, i wouldnt mind kicking the tires on a player not currently on the team ... but we dont have cap space i assume . . .

i liked what little i saw of pugh. not sure about being a starter though.

Speaking for myself I'm just bummed he's done for the year. Starter or not it would have been nice to see him get some valuable experience this year.

Actually, I probably trust him more for week 1 than week 2
I get it and probably agree with this. Reed at SS wasn't/isn't our problem, and you could argue he earned the position at last season's end.

definitely, I was bummed but I wasn't pissed like when Orakpo got hurt last year or Griffin.

Its just a young rookie, we have yet to truly see and develop, now for another year. At least we can still see the other rookie DBs (knock on wood)

I like DeJon Gomes but he is a backup and spot starter

Losing Rak was a punch to the gut. Thomas is a pinch on the arm.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Bottom line, safety is still going to be messy. Hopefully a better pass rush can help.

This. If we are in terrible shape because we lost out 4th round pick then we have bigger problems....

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

It's probably best to play the waiver wire. That's not going to net you a week one starter, but still, this is a pretty brutal position. The positive side of that is that it's going to be fairly easy to upgrade.

I'm going to do a roster analysis to see if any team in the NFL is carrying five or six versatile safeties, because if you know one is going to get moved, you can jump in and make a trade or try to get him on waivers.

At least our corners are looking much better. That's a pretty huge improvement from 2012.
