caveman Posted August 18, 2011 Share Posted August 18, 2011 Go ahead and berate me for bringing up a subject that has been discussed many times before, but then is thenand now is now. We already have to assume certian things on defense -- That Edwards will improve the pass rushand that Jerry and/or Peters will become an impact player. Thank God we resigned Nicolas at LB, or this position would be a major concern.The secondary is the area that is already thin (at best), and an injury or two from becoming a total disaster.I think it's the same hammy bothering Daunta as before. He is our best CB and he 'must' be able to play!I'm not going to re-open the debate on Grime's size -- he has great abilities for a guy 5'8". There are somematch-ups that he simply can't overcome the differential. Can he really be expected to cover a Calvin Johnson type -- or even a type like our own Julio Jones? It's established that the Falcons run the nickel on the majority of their total defensive plays. So, even if Robinson and Grimes stay healthy, are we confident thatOwens and Franks are starting caliber players for a Super Bowl team? A team should be 4 deep at CB and 3 deepat safety, assuming that the 3rd safety can play free or strong (like Coleman could do). Another defensive assumption is that Moore and DeCoud will stay healthy, and continue to improve.And my 'final' ASSUMPTION, is that TD will do what is necessary to make the secondary strong enough to compete for a championship!!
