So I saw that article about the secondaries rankings for the season, and we were #5. It made my blood boil with excitement. Since I received so much love from the Freeman highlight video I made, I decided to do one for the secondary. Do yah think we can have the best secondary in the league this year like the Broncos of 2015?
In the past few weeks, we got to hear a lot of talk about how our Safeties were not playing at the level from earlier in the season. Well, they must of heard you b/c they played pissed tonight. Just watch this video: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/0ap1000000063524/Manning-s-big-first-quarter ...and then, this one: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/0ap2000000102854/Pick-five ...and tell me they aren't eerily similar. We'll to our Safeties, in fact to our entire secondary, this thread is to you. All of you played amazing. And to everyone that doubted them: No shoving people, there's plenty enough crow for everyone. Rise up!
Don't get me wrong, while I'm excited about adding Asante to the roster, the move confuses me a little, and here's why. Last year, BVG (aka Ron Burgundy) ran that annoying soft-zone coverage which was devoured by every QB with two working legs (looking at you, Tavaris Jackson). To remedy this, we bring in Mike Nolan, who has a reputation for being a smash-mouth, aggressive type coach. One would think, then, that they would go after more physical corners. But that hasn't happened. We've retained Grimes, who did a lot of thriving in Ron Burgundy's system, and we've pretty much added Asante. Asante, as talented as he is, does better in zone coverage. So does this mean we're gonna look more like BVG than we expect to? Does it mean that Dunta still won't be able to play as physically as he needs to to maximize his skillset? I'm just a bit unsure, that's all. Maybe I'm totally off-base. If I am, feel free to let me know
