If we lost any of them we'd be ok finding replacements. They fit our system and may not do as well on other teams.

Most of them are safe.

But if we lost any of them I think it would be a good thing because we can move on and try and get upgrades even.

Harper had some bad moments, really bad moments last year but he is solid in run support and I'd still consider him better than the average SS.
Bob Sanders is a much better Safety than Harper is but I'd rather have Harper on this team. At least Harper plays almost every game for the Saints. How many games does Sanders play on average a year? Not many.

We start getting a little...even just a LITTLE but consistent pressure from the DLine and Harper and all his friends will begin to look a bit better.

Wow, he had some really good games in the 2nd half of the season. Carolina, Seattle, Cinci, St Louis, Atlanta.

He was the leading tackler in several of those games and played well in pass protection. He didn't look good in the Baltimore game and the playoff game, but no one else did either.

He looked good otherwise. 59 tackles (7.4 per game) 3 sacks and 2 FF. We went 6-2 also.

As much as we want him to be an Ed Reed type player, he isn't. I've never been Harper's biggest supporter, but he is underrated by our fans... including myself. Let's say we do want to upgrade, who exactly are we going to bring in here and give us Harper's production? You could honestly say he's one of the most consistent producers on our defense the past couple of seasons. We know he's not the better pass defenders back there... but SF makes a really good point. If we get more consistent pressure from our front 7, it'll help not just Harper... but Greer, Porter, and Jenkins too. Greer, our best corner, had a drop off in play also.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
