Are we set at safety?

Our strong safety is dynamite in the box and gets beat by big boys in coverage, but he is getting better each year.
We could expect to lose him for a game or two because of his aggressive demolishing hits.....it's a possibility I think.

Our free safety takes bad angles, doesn't tackle well and is always just a little too late. He missed Sharper more than anybody.
He was a slow corner we converted. I don't want to call it a failed experiment but when Sharper was here Jenkins played better.
I may get a few folks that won't agree.jmho
How set are we at the safety positions and depth?

At this point in the draft if we can get a good pass rusher or a good safety or both I they get a A in my book.

I do agree with you at the safeties. they might not be the best, but we should get more up front. A Dt or better De, with more pressure up front they should be ok. As far as the depth goes. I don't really have a clue. I did like that hit Abdul-Quddus laid on that giant wr, or TE. He should be ok

I’d rather a ball hawking safety than an aggressive hard hitting safety.

True I forgot the age of football we are playing now, with Roger Goodell at the wheel. Better go out an get a ball hawk now.

My main concern would be Roman Harper getting suspended. I wouldn't be surprised if he was.

Yep,thats the problem.That leaves only Jenkins,that isnt that bad on his own,just needs someone that he can communicate with . Also,all of our defense deserves a better coaching staff,lets hope they have one now with Spag at the helm .

I can see what you mean but Harper hits like a MACK truck and I like that too. Has to be a nightmare to be a QB and see him coming around the corner.

In pass coverage you see him comming around the corner after you have crossed the goal line.
