    Ok guys I hear all the whining abou our defensive secondary, and honestly I am worried as well. But should we be? We know Saban is coming in a desciple of Billy B. We know we will be running the 4-3/3-4 prototype defense. We know there will be a strong zone scheme, with a hell of alot of blitzing. Is our secondary all that bad? New England won the superbowl with...

    Randall Gay
    Hank Poteat
    Rodney Harrison
    Dexter Reid
    Eugene Wilson

    vs.

    Sam Madison
    Travis Daniels
    Lance Schulters
    Tebucky Jones
    Reggie Howard

    All of a sudden our secondary looks really good...

    Now of course Harrison is a beast, but who are the rest of the guys? They are nobodies in the NFL. If our linebackers and d-line can apply the pressure, and fool the offense our secondary will do great. Just like the Patriots' did.

    Bell able to play nickel?

    He is a safety and I don't think he matches up well in a nickel situation. You need a corner in that position.

    Your right, they did have Asanti Samuels. Don't know how I missed him, but before last season he wasa nobody as well. I kind of like Howard at nickelback, but Bell may be better. We'd have to give him a shot as none of us have seen him. As for Bobby Taylor... HELL YA!

    Bobby and Madison will make the best oldie CB tandem in the NFL. :lol:

    Damn that give Reggie Howard the pink slip by the end of this week's TC.

    He got smoked on every play when the ball was thrown on his side.

    That catch Muhammad made inside the 5 that gave them that TD Howard looked pathetic.

    At least Daniels has familiarity with the schemes Saint Nick has.He's a rookie and he'll take his usual rookie lumps but so what from what I hear he has excellent recovery speed so that could've been an INT or pass deflection had he played with the 1st team.

    Kris Richard got burned bad the other night.

    To be honest - even though it was the first preseason game - we looked like crap in the secondary. It seemend that people were confused on their assignments. The Bear's QBs were picking their spots and making 10-15 yd completions with ease.

    I'm scared!

    I don't get the facination with being like New England... there system works for them, but the NFL is full of transition, someone will find a way to beat them, then everyone will be on that teams jock (probably the bills ;) )

    But the reason NE can play without superstars in the secondary is because they get a great pass rush up front... you have to be able to generate that kind of pass rush with minimal blitzing so you can leave guys back in coverage... if you have to send guys on a blitz alot, you need corners who can cover one on one.

    Randall gay would suck if he had to single cover

    Yup that's pretty much it, you need an effective pass rush or all the DB schemes in the world are for nothing.

    Harrison is a dirty player and I can't stand his BS. Our secondary isn't bad its only the first GAME, if we look the same after the last preseason game, then press the PANIC button but other than that lets all just :calm: Down. Hopefully our secondary will mesh together better or else.... :goodnight

    Because the NFL is a copycat league my friend. You find the team doing the most right, and copy as much as you can. Then evolve, to become better than that team. It has been like that for years.
