ummm.... Maybe Bates wants Schulters to team up with Arturo Freeman but I'd like to see them stick Nick Collins at Free Safety and let him show what he can do.

I highly doubt that Collins will do the job good, i hate having raw rookies on secondary, i dont mind on d line but secondary is a lil whiffy

Safety is the least important position on the defense...why do you think its the lowest paid position. Our boyz will be fine in the secondary as long they can generate constant pressure on the quarterback with the front seven.

Have you ever seen him play or are you going by something in a NFL draft magazine? He does need some coaching but he has good ball skills and playmakers make plays. Sure he might miss an assignment, even veteran's will make a few mistakes (Champ Bailey got beat deep alot last year) but there's a reason why Collins was a 2nd round pick out of the little known Bethune-Cookman. I'd rather have him take his lumps than have an aging, injury prone veteran who wants to "get paid" while only being to help for a year or two.

Least important? It's the last line of defense. Good Safety play is a catalyst for a defense to be aggressive. Having an Ed Reed or Rodney Harrison can do wonders for your defensive scheme. Having a ball hawk at Safety will not only help the corners and force the QB to throw more horizontal passes but it make the QB check down further in his reads which will give the D-line a second or two longer to get to him. A really strong pass rush can alleviate some deficiencies at safety but it pretty much forces you to play a very basic 2-deep defense.[font=&quot][/font]

I to would have really loved to land Lance, but if not at least it shows that Saban is gonna stick to his guns and not over pay for FAs. He seems to understand the importance of hunting for bargains and knowing you can no longer play the offseason as if the year we are in is the only one that matters.

This upcoming season could still be a learning year. I really don't think we are gonna go from the 2nd worst record in the league to playoffs in one year. It COULD happen but would have to be looked at as a long shot. However if we show inprovement, combined with the idea that we will continue to be in solid cap position for years to come, it will make it easier to deal with. I would hate to EVER be in the position the Ravens were in a couple of years ago, or the position the Titians were in the past year. I really like the way Saban sees the big picture and doesn't overeact.
