SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

June 3 issue:

Washington Redskins: "B - Sean Taylor's concentration must match his talent; the run support is good."



Inside the NFC:
REDSKINS LE Renaldo Wynn makes excellent use of leverage and has worked extensively to fine-tune his handwork. He's exceptionally bright. has a good work ethic and is a stable presence in the locker room..."

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

I forgot this...

NFL FOCUS: Position Battles:
"Redskins CB Walt Harris relies on his experience, savvy and solid technique to get in position to contain passing games and make plays. Harris will be challenged by Carlos Rogers, who was drafted with the expectation that he will start at some point in 2005. Rogers has excellent speed, is a big hitter and can play press coverage. but he has a great deal to learn. The likely scenario is that Harris will hold the job through training camp, with Rogers gradually taking over."

I like how our defense has an overall rating of B while we were number 3 in the league last year.

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

We've had some big changes on our D.

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

Rogers for Smoot - Even with potential for upgrade
Holdman for Pierce - Even with potential for upgrade
LaVar will be back
We've added ridiculous depth at safety

The D will be better this year!!!!!

Even? Not quite. Potential for an upgrade sure. However Rogers is an unproven commodity thus far.

I don't buy this. I think Pierce was glorified by the system, but he ran it flawlessly. Holdman hasn't been what he once was (from all the reports I've seen/read) and is moving to the inside. I bet 95% of the people here would much prefer to have Pierce.
Quote:

Yep, unfortunately OLB was one of the positions I think we have pretty solid depth at.
Quote:

We already had depth at safety. Clark, Lott, Bowen, Taylor, Franz (got cut), etc. Problem is, only so many DBs can play at once.

I'm worried about MLB, our CBs (I could definitely see a time this year where Rogers and Harris are our starters. I hope it's not true, but Sean Springs isn't exactly known for his durability.). Well, that's about it. Our line is fine for their job. We have a great coordinator. Not saying we'll slip very far, but a B with two big losses to the defense and Taylor being kinda wishy washy is an adequate grade.

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

i think they deserve a "A" especially there was some injuries to some key players last year and now we are getting them back. We have added a faster,bigger corner than smoot but like it was said he has a lot to learn but could be a star in the system in which it allows you to make big plays if you can.

B for talent, A for effort and execution

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

Oh one more thing Holdman. Pierce had one good breakout season and Holdman is a proven starter. I think that was a major upgrade. I mean he is faster than Pierce. You need speed in our system to make the system work and that what he has. Along with that being said he has some of his old coaches from chicago who know how to use him. Trust me folks he will make you forget about Pierce, but I like to thank him for all of his hardwork though.

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

I don't think we'll notice much of a dropoff in the D this year, if anything they could be even better because of experience in the system and the return of some key guys like LaVar, Daniels, etc.

Agreed. Rogers still has a lot to prove at this level

I'm not sure why people keep saying Springs isn't exactly known for his durability. That's not true. He got hurt one year where he missed 8 games then the first four of the next season. But otherwise in his 9 year career he's played in just about every game

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

Springs definitely gets a bad rap for being "injury prone"

Here's his career starts

97: 10
98: 16
99: 16
00: 16
01: 8
02: 15
03: 12
04: 15

5 starts missed over the last 3 years, not really a huge concern. He's a physical corner, he's going to stick his nose in plays that other corners wouldn't.

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

Glad someone could point that out. Before I looked at sites like this, I only relied on my news from ESPN. I remember them saying he was injury-prone, but I guess that was only one season.

Re: SN Unit Analysis: Safeties

Our d this year may get the most help from our offense and special teams. They were forced into alot of bad situations last year from the lack of production in our offense. We had alot of three and outs given them no rest and our opponents good field position. They performed better than any other d in the league with what they were given. Our special teams should be alot better this year and that will also help with field position and help take some of the presure off the d.I feel we would have had the number one d last year if they had received any help at all from our offense and a little more help from special teams.
