Yes it’s his.
I hope he runs with it but Lippett is a ball hawk.
I'm wondering if we could transition Lippet to FS? Not sure I see him as a slot corner type.
I like Tank’s feistiness and Lippett’s ability to play the ball. Not sure about how Lippett will fare coming off an Achilles injury.
What I like is this will be a true competition. That’s a big plus. I like both guys.
McCain is getting extended. He’s a good player. He’s unfairly maligned on this site.
I like both those guys. Lippett was really making progress. I hope he's back 100% healthy and gets his hands on the football.
Tank was doing a decent job too so I hope he's back 100% healthy also.
We have a lot of guys coming back from injury this year. IF we can stay healthy we could have a much better team
If our Dline shows up this year, our young Dbacks will look good, real good. These kids are aggressive and seem to want to succeed at this level, this is one of the few positions that has a ton of upside.......but it all depends on the guys upfront.
Really think it's the LB group that needs to step up.
(my bolding in quote) McCain improved a lot this last season. I think the grief he took in previous years was well warranted. Hopefully he continues to improve and contribute!
The job is definitely Tank's ... for now.
In the NFL, if there are two good young CB prospects, and one has 3 shakey games ... most coaches pull him and put in the other guy.
Tankersley has more athletic ability and will be given every opportunity to win the spot unless he is awful.
Lippett's injury undercuts the staff's trust in him, and he is slow and not quick. Lippett would have to ball out AND Tankersley show very poorly for Lippett to start over a healthy Tankersley on opening day.
But by game 3, a re-evaluation will be in full swing.
Who said anything about slot corner?
Do you think Lippett could slide at FS with his ball hawk ability ?
Although it's easy to follow the NFL in general over here across the pond it's more difficult to follow how individual players do (main reason I signed up to the forum) but I really liked what I saw of him. I've got high hopes for the kid, are they justified or not?
I don't at all - he's not a good tackler for a CB, let alone a FS.
You can never have enough good CBs, so i think we should continue to develop him there.
I loved some of the things Tank was able to do last year... Even if he were a bit raw. I loved Lippett's second year too.
When was the last time we had three corners on out roster that most people liked / would have been happy to see start? Whether any of them are able to play slot or not, chances are we'll need at least three boundary corners throughout the season. Our strength in depth there right now (assuming Lippett recovers well), all on their rookie deals and two of them being mid / mid-late round picks is how you become a winning team. We need to do it up and down the roster... but Corner is a start at least!!
