    Beau Allen - Maybe
    To automatically assume Jennings will be better than Collins seems insane to me.
    Why didn't Bentley play in front of Van Noy last season?

    Winner gets to select a PatsFans avatar (SFW) that the loser must adopt for a month.

    Yeah, assuming that we can get solid production from Copeland/Maluia/Harris/Tezino is a dangerous game. Copeland is a career JAG and the latter 3 are low-end rookies. Maluia in particular has very little on paper to suggest he's anything but a future special teamer.

    Beau Allen is another career JAG who might be a solid replacement for Shelton but will in all likelihood not be an upgrade.

    Some very rose tinted takes overall.

    That might be, but Fat Danny is still >>> Fat Thor.

    Disagree with Fat Thor vs Fat Danny...Fat Thor is terrible, and way too expensive relative to the market, similar to Matty LaGlasse last year...
    Jennings & Copeland had better be good run defenders, because they're both less-than-useless, plodding stiffs in space...
    Tezino and especially both Bentley & MyLulu are nothing whatsoever more than sub-practice squad-level, tackling-dummy junk, none of whom are deserving to wear even a training camp jersey.

    I do agree however about Wrong Hole Roberts, who also sucked.

    We’ll just have to see what the winner decides to do!

    Think about it. No need to decide until we see if there will actually be a season.

    You already lost.

    There will be an NFL season. Kraft said so on Hannity and he said there will be fans in the stadiums.

    This defense has come so far in man match-passing guys off since Gilly got here. It was a borderline nightmare at first, some instances. Now, there's a small gap between us and the next best.

    It showed up big time against the Rams, KC & Atl.

    With as much *****ing that goes on around here Bill deserves a ton of credit for building this defense the way he did in 2020.
    I mentioned the other day about how far & fast defense has changed. Remember when you only needed 2 good corners or would worry about your CB2? Now you need 5-6 different DB's that can cover. You need to worry about QB's that can bust off 40 yard runs and can air it out pretty easily.

    Jackson deserves mentioned in the top tier CB groups. He's so good impending speed at the line off press using his jam & sidelines. You see it in trail coverage as well. Just really makes everything difficult for the WR.

    I really want to keep him & Jones. Those two could be out CB1-2 for a good 6-7 years if we can get ahead on their contracts.

    So good ...

    I think you're having trouble following this conversation. My bad, forgot whom I was engaging with.

    I think Jennings fills the KVN role and Uche/Winovich play the Collins spot. Bentley I'm not convinced he is more than a run-stopper in specific spots currently.

    Winovich needs to stay on the outside.

    I did. Van Noy and Bentley play completely different positions, have completely different skill-sets and completely different skill levels.
