Why is it sad? Harper has always been better at run support near the line...

At this point..try anything because what we are currently doing is not working.
I like it.. but I liked it last year too when it was called a nickel defense.

Colston would like to retaliate for all those hits... how about Marques at safety

This isn't good. He's already small for a SS.

Yeah I've heard the same thing mentioned about players we have had in the past..hmmm

Point is, who the hell knows..it might be crazy enough to work. If it don't then oh well. Atleast Spags is trying to do something. It's mainly because of injuries but I would rather see Harper get a chance and maaaaaybe exceed, then watch Shanle go out there a suck up the place with his suckiness.

Hey its not like this defense could get any worse, give it a try. If its works then Spags looks like a genius, and if it doesn't then so what, at least he tried to do something different to change the production on defense

Carolina uses Thomas Davis similar to this. I like the idea. Speed and coverage ability at backer from a guy who is decent in run support might work well. My concern is our depth at safety. I don't like anyone we have there and it might well expose a new problem.

Sad in the fact that it resorts to this.
