I don't know, hutch. We are thin, sure. But I don't know if we need a veteran safety. It may be rough right away. But let's trust the coach's (being this early in his tenure) picks thinking they can teach them. That's kind of the point I was getting at. Keep the few vets we have who are known starters, but not sign guys who "know the system" who will be average at best, just to get someone in there. It will end up being guys who should be getting time to learn, not getting the time, because they aren't good right away.
I do agree with you Simmion.....I am all in on the coaches especially with Turner so not questioning any of their choices. I fully expect this transition on defense to take a few years and that transition will be with some younger talent. My point and it goes to what Koko said about the guaranteed contracts after week one. We physically don't have enough safeties going into the season IMO and that is one position that could still get tweeked .
I think that is why Josh Robinson made the team Hutch. They are looking at having him play safety from time to time not just as a nickel CB.
Well it appears Blanton has the SS position and Brinkley has the MLB position. Not sure how long Blanton will last as starter. But that was the intent back when we drafted him. Blanton being a CB in college moving to SS aside former teammate Harry Smith. But the way it sounds, Zimmer constantly rotates his DBs.
Prater would be good at SS Koko! I just read an article where Zimmer said he thinks a DB should be able to play multiple positions so I think we may see him experiment with several people. I am just excited to see real football again. I am glad that we get to test our Defense out real time before we face Brady next week.
I agree Hutch! I would rather see them win it all in 2 years when they host the Super Bowl and can play at home in the new stadium. How sweet would that be?
