Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Losing a rookie in his first camp sets him way behind in his development, thats my biggest concern at this point.

Thomas would certainly been in the rotation for play in sub packages. After thinking about it, its a bigger loss maybe than I initially thought.

I do think we will work the waiver wire on this one, even with the guys we got in camp.

Wild card is def Tanard Jackson, hope he realizes this is probably his last shot and needs to bring it.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I picked Doughty and Rambo. As Goat mentioned Doughty played very well towards the end of the season and I want Merriweather fully healthy before starting him so he doesn't get reinjured so easily. Rambo's been playing with the starters so lets stay with him. A longshot would be Amerson who some projected as a safety but I personally would rather see him start at corner this year.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Meriweather is practicing fully as of now, so I don't know why you'd operate under any other assumption than he will be fully healthy by week one.

Obviously if he's not healthy when week one rolls around you reconsider your depth chart.

I mean that's what we're doing with RG3. He's practicing fully and everyone knows he's starting week 1. Not sure why we'd treat Meriweather differently. If he's healthy enough to practice fully then he's healthy enough to play a regular season game if it was held today.

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.
