    The secondary will get better as they get experience. We have two very young corners who have great skills. Also, we have safeties that are young and we have a pro bowler at the other safety.

    Gibril Wilson is gone. How could that make us worse?

    Super ****ing dumb. We're replacing Wilson with Culver or and improved Clemons = upgrade; Davis comes into his 2nd year = upgrade; Smith comes into his 2nd year = upgrade; Y. Bell is still Y. Bell; and W. Allen or N. Jones? = upgrade. Not seeing the secondary regression. Add to that, Nolan's secondaries look much better than PP's secondaries year in and year out.

    Pretty much captures it. There is of course a realistic worst case scenario, but the realistic worst case scenario would involve the Dolphins secondary being the same as a year ago because (for whatever reason) Smith and Davis make zero progress, Will Allen post-ACL is no better (or worse) than Nate Jones, and Tyrone Culver (or Chris Clemons) is the same as Gibril Wilson. I have a hard time believing all that.

    Do writers get off on creating drama??? We're looking at one of the best Dolphin teams we've had in a long time, and all I see nonsense like this. What's up with that?

    Irresponsible to justify that this unit has progressed? Bull****. Wilson was terrible last year, he's gone. Davis and Smith shown promise, but they did give up a lot of big plays as well, but now they have a full year under their belt. Add in that our best CB, who just so happened to be having a career type year, is back. There's nowhere for this unit to go but up.

    I agree, there's nowhere for this group to go but up.

    No way in hell this Defense is not improved... Having Wilson, Porter and Taylor out, finally our fornt 7 will get pressure. It won't be that easy for offenses to see the holes on our D.

    the chances of Gibrils replacement being better than Gibril 85%
    the chances of Davis and Smith being better this year 80%
    chances of Allen coming back and stll being pretty good 70%
    the chances of us having a better D cordinator than last year 90%

    How did we regress?

    We didn't regress, the defense should be much improved this year.

    regression wil come if there isn't any pressure on the QB, can't asked DB's to cover 10 seconds in any secondary even the best Db's can't do it.

    LBer's will be key in coverage every TE they played against beat them like a drum in the middle of the field, I know crowder is ok LB but he's not a complete stud.

    This hopefully should not be a problem with Dansby, Misi, and Edds. We'll see...

    No, but they get paid to do it.
