Top four on the field. That makes sense to me.

I guess, I'm not sure of Smith as a CB. Does he have NFL experience at CB? I recall he played CB in College, but T-buck played RB in College, and I'm sure as heck not going to endorse him to play RB.

What do you think?

Yes Smith does have NFL experience at CB, thus his desire to return there. As far as I recall, he was decent, better than what we have. But I am of the mindset that he should not be bogged down with the traditional responsibilty a CB has. Maybe a few plays here and there each game. But I am more excited about him out in space as a safety creating havoc. We haven't had a ball hwaking play making safety in several years, and Smith is that guy. Maybe in a 3 wide, he can line up on a receiver if we blitz(which having him at safety allows us the freedom to corner blitz might I add), but let him play safety. And bullocks too if he is ready.

Oh, and I mean better than we have as a CB outside of McKenzie just to clarify.

cheer from the pine.

FS-Smith
SS-Bellamy, Bullock in passing situations
CB-Mckenzie, Brown

Good Secondary now lets tell the staff about that other position on the D that does exist called LB!!!!!

Bullock in passing situations
Haha which might be never. Our run defense might be so bad that they'll never have to throw against us.

But I agree, our secondary looks stronger than it has in a long time.

I agree with Kools opinion on Bellamy. He has been a solid defender on the D and has done a good job. I like the fact that he has shown the effort not to give up even when he was thought to be more of a weakness. Thing is, if Bullocks is better, then he needs to play. I would hate to see Bellamy cut because I think he still has it, but if Bullocks is better---better do what is best for the team (and the fans).

I don't think they'll be cutting Bellamy. Depth would still be an issue.

Thanks for the background Whodi. It still seems to me that the bulk of his playing time is at FS, isn't it? If so, I say let him play that spot - as I am in full agreement that play making at Safety is a need.

Yeah, does anyone know anything about Williams?
