Be surprised if Edelman/Solder are not extended during the 2017 season. Was wrong about Hightower so my track record on this is shaky😄

@RocheSmoke Yes, sir. Believe that as well Jordan ... er...Ryan. LOL.

@jricci_rich77 While sound in theory, no-name special teamers critical (think Philly game last year with blocked punt etc.). Won't happen.

Confident that veteran deals will include 46-man active roster bonuses.

@HendersonChef Not sure I'd put it in no-brainer category, but agree that's the likely scenario.

@_karlrademacher Hi Karl. Hard for me to agree after watching Floyd in regular-season finale. But agree he's choice if everyone's healthy.

    Can we draft the entire Alabama D whilst we're at it?

    Wilson goes off! Oh what a suprise!

    What did i say last week? This secondary is so bad at coverage that they make the most average and inexperienced QB's look like hall of famers.

    Wilson is alright but he is not that good yet, yet just like with Fitzpatrick and Locker they make the 'meh' QB's look amazing.

    Sick and tired of the same rubbish every week with our DB's giving up 40 yard bomb's at will.

    Re: Wilson goes off! Oh what a suprise!


    Agree with this. It's getting really eff'n old wasting year after year of Brady's career by giving him a defense that can't seal the deal. Really starting to wonder if BB is even capable of putting together a decent secondary at this point. This **** is just awful.

    Re: Wilson goes off! Oh what a suprise!

    Sadly, I have and do agree. Yea, I'm a cry baby. We have a strong chain with a weak link. Let the koolaid drinkers guzzle away. This is a great team with pass coverage problems. The worst I've seen in a long time. And BB is in denial.

    We need to try something. Our secondary has been regressing for at least 3 years running.

    We need more height and better speed in the Secondary

    In my opinion. NFL wide receivers at 6'4 210lb with 4.3 speed, we need to find a talented tall cover guy to be able to hang with the true # 1 wide receivers of the NFL today.

    5'9, 5'10 cornerbacks with average speed are not going to make it at an elite level in today's NFL

    Tell that to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens or Houston Texans.

    We need DBs with better technique who look for the ball and take good angles.

    Well said my friend, this is true especially against teams like Saints and Giants

    Rather than a gazillion threads on the defensive backs and pass coverage, post all your thoughts on this unit here.

    Not clear what he's saying because he is praising the talent of the Alabama players.

    Re: Wilson goes off! Oh what a suprise!

    I think it is an economic decision BB made. He knows our secondary sucks, but good secondary is so expensive, he is taking a hit there, building up a nice pass rush, great offense, and hoping the nude emperor sneaks through to another SB.

    I think the experiment is failing.

    Get a new secondary coach. Now.
