    Maybe they think they can move DRC to Saftey? They now have a solid corner in Hanson sitting there rotting.

    I f'n hate the Eagles
    No...they're all playing corner. DRC still has fantastic potential at corner. Not to mention, the guy is a twig.

    Thanks BoneKrusher^

    • Okay so Elam, Huff, Whitner, Sensy...what other safeties are left?

      • I'm sick to my stomach. I have very little optimism right now. JJ needs to make some damn moves to get us on track to compete from a defensive standpoint. I hope there's some deals going down this weekend.

        • I dont think Ryan likes Huff at all. We apparently dont want him at all.

          Tanard Jackson, Benard Pollard, Atarti Bigby, Brodney Pool, Darren Sharper, Reed Doughty...are some noteables off the top of my head. But it doesnt get much better than that, I believe.

          Some of those guys may not even be available...I just got back, so I'm not updated on all the signings.

          Thanks BoneKrusher^

            That's probably true. He was no good when Ryan was there. tsk tsk tsk.

            Too early to welcome back Kenyon Coleman and Abram Elam? Oh geez. Who's next? Bobby Carpenter? Jacques Reeves?

              • Really pissed off that we missed on Patrick Peterson now more than ever.

                This coming from a Tyron fan. gah.

                • I'm not...I'm not even worried about our corners, really. I expected them all back this year. Smith was still the best pick for this team, imo. I'm more than a little excited about having Free/Smith protecting Romo for many years.

                  As far as the draft is concerned...I just wish we would have taken Rahim Moore.

                  I assumed Bowen would return...so I wasnt too mad about passing on End at the time. I did have interest in Bailey, though.

                  • The scary thing, is that we have a preseason game in two weeks and have no safeties. This is why Elam is all but a lock, imo. He comes in and he knows what's going on.

                    Even Sensabaugh wont have familiarity with the defense. Whoever we get is going to have a lot to learn in a short period of time. I'm kind of getting nervous that we're going to move forward with either AOA or Church as one of the starters. Wouldnt surprise me at all if Church and Elam are our starting safeties this year. And that is just so freaking scary. lol. But Church has the edge over AOA for sure.

                      Elam is no savior. He's hardly a stop gap. I don't get any thrill in seeing him as a potential sign.

                      • Alright so had some time to blow steam off from the Nnamdi fiasco. Sucks, but what are you gonna do?

                        We need to get involved with FA though ASAP.

                        Wishlist as of right now:

                        Justin Blalock
                        Brodney Pool
                        Michael Huff
                        Kenyon Coleman

                        Get a young stud RG to finalize our retooling of the OL, and on defense bring in 2 new safeties who are already familiar with Rob's system. I really liked Pool when he came out and wanted us to draft him in the worst way. He never really lived up to what I thought he would be but he's still a very solid option at SS, as long as the concussion history is behind him. I don't know what the deal with Huff is or what Rob thinks of him, but if they're fond of each other then get his ass in here. He's far and away the best FS available and has really taken some strides forward as a player the past 2 seasons. Kenyon is JAG but he knows the system, will come cheap and we need the depth.

                        If we have the room leftover, go get Vonta Leach. He's a tough SOB and would be a nice upgrade to the running game. He's "The Right Kind of Guy" as Red would say.

                        • So Im reading that we had a deal with Aso and that is who Jerry and Rob were talking to. The eagles came in last min and scooped him up somehow. Are ya'll hearing the same? I dont know how this happened. BLAH!!!

                            Whatevers... Calvin Watkins said on ESPN that Jerry offered $40M. What a cheap ass.

                              yea that's the story, but like D said... Jerry only offered 40 mil.

                              on another note, how good does Otogwe's 5 year 26 mil deal look now? lol

                                Elam is a fine player, I never said he was a savior. It just makes sense to sign him. Ryan's defense is complicated. It'd be smart to sign a decent safety, with knowledge of the schematics. I want two safeties, but I am hoping Elam is one of them, his familiarity with Ryan and the defense would be incredibly beneficial. And Elam is a pretty good player, make no mistake about it. Certainly on par with Sensabaugh.

                                These aren't star players, but you could certainly win with these guys. They're not defense killers like an Alan Ball. Everyone who is left is an average to above average safety. Elam/Sensy are quality players. Nothing special, but starting safeties in this league. That's what we're looking at right now.
