    I think Mayo will have to used more as a blitzer next year simply because I don't think there will be enough of a push on the outside. As far as him making big plays I think he only had one fumble recovery last year but he has said that he didn't have a full grasp of the defense and got by a lot last year on speed and athletic ability. With a full offseason under his belt I expect a lot more dynamic plays from him. Another way I see more pressure on the QB is if the Pats do go to a 3 safety look like was talked about in another thread Merriweather is a good blitzer. A casing point would be the play against Seattle when he sacked Wallace and forced a fumble which closed out the game
    I really want us to use some 3 safety sets as well. Chung was a very good blitzer in college, I hope that translates to the NFL because that would add a nice dimension to our defense. As far as Mayo is concerned, he had a great rookie year last year but didn't make many big plays and we know that. He is a guy who can make plays in coverage and as a blitzer and I think with a year experience under his belt he will be much better.

    • Mayo did some blitzing last year, but I agree it would be nice to see more from him. I recall a few sacks where Mayo was the guy occupying a blocker or running a game that lead to a free blitzer getting the sack.

      With the relative weakness of our pass rush all around I think teams had the D-line as a priority and then Mayo. I certainly won't claim I can confirm that at all, but there was no other player that would scare you as a D-coordinator so I think that is a reasonable assumption.

      100 solo tackles and 128 total w/zero sacks and 1 FF & recovery . . . lots of room for improvement from our DROY. :D

      • I'd like to see something around 100 tackles, 4 sacks, and 2 INTs from Mayo. I think that would be pretty ideal. Seems like a big improvement.

        • Yea i agree i would like to see more big plays from him. I really dont care if he gets patrick willis like tackle numbers because i really think tackles are an overrated statistic. For a guy with his athletic ability id love to see more sacks and forced fumbles in particular. Im not really worried about interceptions because i feel there will be a lot of nickel and dime situations and i would prefer mayo up near the line of scrimmage wreaking havoc and letting the cover men make plays

          • Greg Ellis was released by the Cowboys, I would like to see us make a move on him. He is older but we need to add a body at OLB.

              • Agreed. His age is not a big concern since he will (hopefully) only be a stop gap for a year or two. Plus it is the BB way - pick up the old vet off the trash heap.

                • Ellis would be an awesome pick-up for you guys. I'm hoping the 9ers grab him, but really, he makes a ton of sense for NE.
                  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.

                  • Ellis would be nice, but I expect him to land with either Miami or New Orleans.

                    • New Orleans is an interesting option but I really dont think Miami is an option. Firstly I dont think Ellis and Tuna left on the best of terms after originally switching him to OLB plus Miami also brought back Taylor and got Cameron Wake. That probably would mean Porter and Roth would start with Taylor and Wake as pass push specialists. Im not sure they would want or need another one

                      • Ellis would be a solid pick-up but for some reason I don't see it happening.

                            Yeah I saw that. He is talented with a lot of size and a big arm, but he struggled with the Raiders. He didn't have much to work with and was kind of thrown into the fire, he could be a nice project. He has potential and had a solid college career.

                            • Yea, I don't care what he did with the Raiders. The Raiders made even Moss look human.
                              I think he could turn out nicely and become a solid backup

                              • Yea as a whole I would feel a lot better now with Walter as the #2 over O'Connell just because he has starting experience, although I do think O'Connell will be good in the future. But Walter does throw a nice ball and from what Ive heard he and Moss have a pretty good relationship as well
