Re: Final season stats for defense

And to think of how many starters and players that Ryan brought in got injured before it all even started

Not overly concerned about making any big changes to our secondary. As long as the pressure is coming, they'll be as good as they need to be.

Oh, and give me Aaron Murray.
Actually, really like our WR corps, with the exception/slight disappointment in Toon...

Don't get paying Colston (who is worth it) that kind of money and not using him?!?

Again, with Stills' development, Moore's price may be too high with upcoming contracts to get done (Graham)...

Saints must really like Griffin to have kept Rams away from him; so unless Murray is going to supplant Drew, or some other freakish talent falls in the draft, I don't us taking anything but DB, LB, and OL...

And you're right, it's a no brainer that we've got definite commitments to make to the offensive line in the draft...

Scapegoat. Plenty blame to go around as they've underachieved on both sides of the ball. You also need to remember it's college football and how young these kids are. Also I found this little nugget that shares similar views.

In Defense of Georgia QB Aaron Murray: Why the "Choke Artist" Talk Is Unfair | Bleacher Report

I'm not advocating taking Murray with an early pick, but given his situation(big injury), if he's still there on day 3, it could be a solid investment. I like Griffin and all, but it doesn't make him Drew's eventual successor. Competition is healthy.

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

All little common sense goes a long way.

I said top 10 and I was a big believer in the d-line before training camp even started.

Re: Final season stats for defense

I'd like to see the focus in these 3 areas

OL: Not much needs to be said here. It can not stay in it's current shape. I'm fine with looking towards armstead and letting him mature but we need to get more o-line pieces in case he doesn't work out

LB:This is tough because I like our guys but something has to be done about the lack of speed. I don't know if we want them to maybe cut some weight or get new LB's but their pursuit speed and coverage skills leave a lot to be desired

DB's: It's time to clean a little house. Harper, greer and possibly jenkins should be gone. We don't need to spend heavy but we need a little more speed and depth in the secondary

Everything else is a bonus. I trust that we can do like we always do for offensive weapons and get some no names.

Re: Final season stats for defense

i turned off the TV disappointed in the defense

no pass rush at all

but my biggest concern was the lack of discipline they showed.

i guess they did not learn from the seattle game. reckless aggressive play will get you burned. philli will eat us up if the defense plays that way next week. that blame rests squarely on the coaches.

Hopefully we feed him the ball more. He was good this season. And Thomas' YardsperCarry average is a bit shocking..

Ive a feeling Moore will be traded and replaced by Stills, Toon will be gone, and Meachem will be gone.

There is also a good possibility that Morgan will be gone also as he will be a free agent. Morgan has been with us 3 years has not had a completely healthy season yet.. In a nut shell we paid 1.3M for 10 catches.

The reds go and we pick up new Receivers.
Next years top 4 Wideouts will be Colston, Stills, Morgan and Toon.
