Ok, I've come home and have been sampling some of my own product, straight from the keg, so now Im gonna really stir the shyte pot. We need to get bigger, taller and faster at the DB positions. This has been a recurring theme of mine since I joined this forum a year and a half ago. In fact, it was the subject of my first post. Our DB's read like the manifest of a MASH unit. These guys are constantly injured. The reason for this is simple. The WR's and TE's are much bigger over the last few years than they ever used to be. And our defensive backs aren't. With the exception of Asante, name one day 1 starting DB who has played an entire season without serious time missing injury over the past 3 seasons. Its simple physics. When you continuously give up 3+" and 30+#, something is going to give. I think we can address the issue with the draft re:the safety position, but CB may require a different track. Since Troy has broken the ground as dual duty DB, Perhaps the team could groom one of the bigger, faster WR's in a similar role? I've said before that almost every team has that tall fast WR who just runs go patterns and tries to outjump and out run the DB. Lets train Gaffney, Reche, or CJ, if he is slow to develop as a legit #1 WR, to play DB. Let him match up against such WR's in such games that feature the go pattern to the "tall" guy. Thoughts?
