    Landry/Taylor at the safetys, Dave Macklin, Fred Smoot, and Carlos Rogers at CB

    hopefully our d-line will step-up big time this year otherwise having the worlds greatest secondary won't matter. With that said, i think Andre Carter will surprise a lot of people, he came on very strong at the end of the year. If we can get any kind of pass rush we will be a tough team to beat if not, we'll be lucky to go 8-8. Also, you forgot Shawn Springs. The broncos have to be a close second just with Bly/Bailey or the ravens with McAllister, Rolle, Reed and Dawan Landry.

      Three first rounders in the Redskins db corps is interesting, but hardly makes them the best. This is Baltimore, by a lot.

        Actually 4

        Springs #3 to Seahawks
        Taylor #5
        Landry #6
        Rogers #8

        Smoot #34 or something in the second...

        We draft dbs like the lions draft recievers. But ours are a but more successful.

          Forgot about Springs, but I was mostly commenting on the fact that Rogers, Landry, and Taylor may eventually pan out, but it hardly indicates how good they are.

            i wouldn't say its the Redskins. Landey is a rookie who hasn't taken a snap, Rogers hasn't proven himself enough to make him a strong part of the "top secondary". I'm not a huge fan of Smoot, but i love Taylor. They would be up there though, just not the best

            Ravens is solid all around, because the weakest link is probably Landry and he played solid as a rookie.

            Then again it might be Dallas because Newman and Williams are the best things this world has ever seen (thought i would get this started because we know it will at some point turn to a discussion about them)

              Yeah, i agree. Draft status doesn't mean they're all going to play up to where they are drafted.... but they certainly have some gaudy expectations.

                Baltimore. Easily.

                This thread will probably have a short shelf-life.
                The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                  ya, look at Mike Rumph and Philip Buchanan, man they give the U a bad rep.

                    Rogers is solid, if he could hold on to potential interceptions it wouldn't even be discussion. Hands of stone be damned!

                    Lets say it like this then, the redskins don't have the best secondary, but they certainly have the highest expectations and probably the most talent. Granted, what is talent without production?

                    Anyway, i wasn't crazy about the Landry pick, i like him and i think he's a great player and is going to be a great player. But i'm definetly one with the mind-set that we should have gone d-line. Alas, Gregg Williams is a cocky mofo. Hopefully my team won't pay too harshly for his arrogance.

                      Oakland, in my mind.

                        I was under the impression Huff wasn't doing much of anything.

                        What is it, Washington, Asomuagha, Huff and who? Schwiegart?

                          The Jets don't have it bad now that we have Revis. Kerry Rhodes and Erik Coleman were both All-Rookie team performers, and Rhodes outplayed just about every Safety in the entire league last year. Dyson is a legit number 2, fringe number 1, and with Revis coming in we're now solid.



                          But with all that said, I think it's a toss up between the Broncos or the Ravens.

                            ya McBain, Rogers is solid. but what i was saying is that he isn't a guy that would make u say, "he's a key reason they are the best defensive back group in the league". just to clarify.

                            i'm not goin to pass it to the Raiders just yet, i'm wanting to see next year then i'll throw them in the discussion. no denying the good (great?) year last year, but i want to see more

                              dude, please don't throw in the Jets yet, i don't wanna have a "Jets fans are clueless" type attack. We aren't even close to being in the Top Defensive Back group in the league discussion yet.
                              Revis is a rookie, Dyson is solid but unspectacular and will be a good #2 if Revis can be that #1 (yet to be determined), Coleman is solid, and i love Kerry Rhodes and think he'll be a top saftey in this league, but all together, u'd be hard pressed to have me in my top 5 even, but if they get there next year, i will be one of the happiest people u'll see.

                              WE ARE NOT LIKE THE DALLAS FANS. PLEASE FORGIVE HIM!
