I think Breeland could be the 3rd CB by mid-season. I don't have much confidence in Porter or Biggers.

Not so much.
I remembered one of my friends who's an SEC apologist referred to the beating he took 'playing in the SEC' as reasons for his problems in the NFL. However in finding this it seems that Richardson's struggles might be related more to his football IQ then previously thought.

However in all fairness if wear and tear is a problem it actually might be more related to the program he was a part of rather then the conference. I've heard on more then one occasion that Saban has a reputation for having very physical practices and it's not too crazy to think that more then a few Alabama players have a little bit more wear and tear then other players when they start their pro careers.

Either way I guess that's preferable to the LSU players in the NFL bust theory which states that many players that come out of LSU are physical freaks with low football IQ's and tend to get lazy once they start getting paid.

Though the NFL is certainly grueling I've noticed that pro coaches seem to be a little more cautious as a whole when it comes to making sure guys are healthy during the season. Regardless Richardson better hope he can make a Mershawn Lynch like turn around because at this rate he's looking to be a huge bust.

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

Richardson's problem is that he has 0 vison, and played behind a NFL offensive line, problem is in the NFL everyone has a NFL defense, unlike college.

Jimmy Graham, Saints agree to 4-year, $40M contract - NFL.com

It was a b**** for Graham, but he got a solid deal in the end.

Brian Orakpo unlikely to reach extension with Washington Redskins by deadline - ESPN

It seems both coaching and front office are on the same page on the fact that Orakpo simply isn't worth the type of money he's wanting. He's far from elite, but wants elite money. Not going to happen.

Not this year at least.

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

Someone is going to pay Orakpo a lot of money next year. He may not be elite but he is very good, and very good pass rushers get paid. A lot.

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

I thought Marinelli was a very good line coach for the Bucs back in the day. Has done anything of not since then?

Rod Marinelli likes that Dallas Cowboys' D has much to prove - ESPN Dallas

While on the subject of the Cowboys, I love how their fans are so sure their defense will be better this year than last year. Even though they lost Hatcher, Ware, and Lee, they're totally convinced that somehow Melton, Lawrence, and the supposed "improved D-line depth" will equal a better defense. Sure, sure... countering the loss of their two best pass rushers and the best player on the defense with a DT recovering from ACL surgery, a rookie 2nd round pick, and assorted scrubs equals an improved defense.

Let somebody else do it. Good teams don't overpay for "good" talent. They pay for elite talent and let everybody else walk.

Well remember, they were ranked dead last:

NFL Stats: by Team Category

So let them be hopeful for that 29th ranked D.

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

That's a reasonable goal for them.

I suppose Cowboys fans could point to better health as another reason the defense will improve, but still, if they think that defense will even be mediocre, they need to put the Kool-Aid down.

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

Kind of off topic but I just read BOYS Will BE BOYS, a book about the Cowboys during the Johnson and Switzer year. I can't believe that they won 3 SB's with the amount of partying these dudes did. A great read, and Charles Haley is seriously sick in the head!

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

Before we write Rak off, let's see how he does this year. While I do think this will be his last year here, things may change if he has a 15-17 sack season. If the scheme is more aggressive then maybe he reaches those numbers.

Re: All things offseason discussion part II

If Rak gets the same number of rush opportunities that other top pass rushers get, no reason he can't put up some big numbers.
