Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I wasn't aware Merriweather was fully participating in practice. If he is and not experiencing any drawbacks...start him.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Week 1? I see Merriweather and Doughty.

I think Rambo is starting sometime this season over Doughty, but I don't know that he will be the first week. Obviously we'll see how the rest of the preseason goes.. I have week 2 circled to really see how this secondary is going to be.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Meriweather hasn't been practicing fully. He's had several limited practices. And I think maybe even some days of no practice

True but losing Madieu is addition by subtraction...he was horrible. I'd take Doughty over him every day of the week; he can't cover but he is one of the surest-tacklers in the game.

Wilson is DeJon Gomes' nickname. His high school coach couldn't figure out how to pronounce DeJon, so he started calling him Wilson Gomes.

Thanks for clearing that up SS. I knew I hadn't heard much about him. Certainly not that he was full go in practice.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

What's the chance Amerson starts at one of the 2 CB positions? Anybody going for a bold prediction that amerson wins a starting job? I think it's 50 percent right now.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Personally I've believed from day one Amerson would start on day one. Can't say I thought the same for Baccari.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I think our secondary moves players in and out enough that it doesn't really matter.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Rambo and Merriweather but I'm with FRPLG on this one. We probably will see Reed rotating with Rambo sometimes through out games, depending on plays and how Rambo process everything during game time.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

An update on Meriweather's practice time:

Quote:
Strong safety Brandon Meriweather won't play Monday, but he did participate in four consecutive days of practice, albeit on the practice team. But that represents progress for Meriweather, who had been in and out of workouts while recovering from last season's ACL surgery.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I think in the first game against Vick and Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense, Rambo should sit the entire game. Reed or Gomes should start at Strong Safety and Merriweather at Free Safety. Rambo will be too much of a liability against Vick.

With Reed or Gomes, there is a good chance that Vick gets roughed up and hurt. I would also start Amerson over Josh Wilson based on his size and more physical play. This would be my answer to that fast-paced offense - agressive, physical tacklers (especially in the secondary). This would eventually wear and slow them down physically and negate the offense's effectiveness.

Why would you think that Rambo would be a liability but not Amerson? Both are rookies and will be game-planned against for the first time; most likely neither will look good the first game. Anyway, even if Rambo would be a big liability, I would much rather start him than Gomes or even Doughty. If Rambo gets burned a couple of times, it will be a good learning experience. Gomes is a scrub and I don't want Doughty on the field unless he's needed. I think Rambo and Amerson should both start.
