Seeing what Tanard said on the video about watching every snap last year, it looks like he is chomping at the bit and will be ready to play. He will be a great on the field teacher for Rambo. Rambo can come off the bench and play which is where he should be at this point right now, judging by his play this preseason. Rambo can earn his starting position. IMO Rambo is not to be ready to be starter for Eagles game.

Getting TJ back would be huge.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I think I can live with a safety group of Doughty, Merriweather, Jackson and Rambo (with Gomes lasting only until Jackson can get into playing shape and up to speed - so the bye week).

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I know Ive been saying and will continue to say it, Tanard Jackson needs to come asap. He can play both safety positions folks. If Merriweather isnt right, I wouldnt mind sliding Rambo inside at SS and T Jax at the Free spot.

I certainly don't support this idea. Rambo at SS would be a disaster, since strong safeties are generally used to help out on the run. Rambo needs to be playing the pass, at FS, which is his strength. If Rambo improves his tackling, perhaps it would be a possibility, but not now. It's not that he's a terrible tackler, but strong safeties need to be strong against the run.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

Just saw this article about a potential trade for one of the best safeties in the NFL

Jairus Byrd believed to be open to Buffalo Bills trade - NFL.com

Might be playing for money more than anything else though.

Doughty is a much superior SS to Rambo today, and probably for the 2013 campaign. The only thing Rambo has right now is speed/range i.e. if Doughty had that speed/range he'd be our starting FS without a doubt.

Our problem is we don't have a solid FS, unless Rambo improves rapidly or Jackson comes back.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I'd be interested to know who thought Jordan Pugh should start. That's an...interesting proposition.

Edit: Ahhh...never mind. It was RedskinRat.

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

I was very tempted to put Pugh as the starter, but Doughty would get the nod over him I'd imagine

Re: Who are your starting Safeties

In all likely hood we will struggle at times at safety, I will guarantee our play will be better than last year. I will also will give a full guarantee our play at corner will be even stronger as well. With a better pass rush and if we can keep healthy in the middle we should flirt with a top ten defense.
