point blank to you NC because you are one of the best posters here,,,,, is it realistic to think we could have four new starters in the secondary on the first day of the regular season? after what i saw in the super bowl i would really like to see that but it is probably not realistic.. or is it? what do you think? thank you cc
Sounds great. Culliver/Rogers are 6' and Brown is 5'10". Culliver is MUCH more physical than Rogers though and plays harder (maybe too hard), IMHO. I feel good with Brown. He's consistently very good. But I would love to have a taller SS and CB who can match up against the teams who have killed us with taller, more physical TE's and WR's. These teams killed us and killed us even more in the playoffs. If the refs are going to allow physical CB's in Seattle, don't be surprised if we start to go that route as well (esp. in this division).
Not likely but perhaps, as much as 3 changes (both S's spots and CB or slot CB):
- very good CB. His issue was technique IMHO. He's got the skill set and will but our scheme didn't favor his style and he has a tendency to play the receiver AFTER the ball is caught. He could have doubled his INT's last year had he kept an eye in the backfield. He doesn't press, jam and allows big cushions and free/clean releases esp. on 3rd and shorts (5 and under, yet he lines up 10+ yards off). To me, there is a scheme/coaching issue here. Remember las year when Rogers would come off a route and undercut another for almost all of his INT's? He didn't do that ONCE last year and to me, that is a poor scheme as well. Vanilla.
- trouble tracking. Love his speed/range/physicality. Would be more ideal for FS keeping everything in front of him and can match up better in the RZ (huge weakness for us). The question with him is the same as I have with Goldson. Do either have brains?
We'll have to see what we have in Robinson, Cox and perhaps McBath. Then onto second tier FA and the draft!
