Hey , we got rid of one of the biggest problems, Goldson. Great tackler. Really great tackler. Unfortunately, all tackles were after completed passes....unless he blew the coverage. Nobody really covered himself in glory last yr, and for the Bucs fans, "good luck with Dashon. You all are gonna need it".
I think , cc, with the 43 or 93 or how many ever it was , number of DBs they brought into the fold this yr, we are gonna have some talent back there. Reid alone makes this backfield miles better than last yr. Why? Because he can break up passes, instead of tackling the guy who just made the catch...something that drove me nutty with goldson...despite his big hits. With all the mass of humanity we have competing for the 2 CB and 2 Ss spots, I see nothing but improvement. No idea what Nnamdi has, but I don't think JH or trent bring him along if he can't be better than what we had. The rest, I got no idea who has "it" and who doesn't. But whoever gets the prize...they better darn well be able to defend passes, because last yr, even with that great front 7, our ability to deflect passes sucked. I think we are guaranteed 50% better out of the gate, and maybe a lot better than that, depending on how the remainder of the DBs perform...and I got no idea who it will be. Fascinating that JH/trent brot in so many to compete...which I absolutely love.
