    There was terrible tackles across the board. That one Td down the sidelines was like nobody wanted to tackle.

    Just because We are terrible at drafting CBs does not mean don't draft CBs. I hear this all the time....not from You, but others.....You can't just stop drafting something because You haven't had luck at it.

    I like our team, with a few more players we can turn this around.

    I never said don't draft them....just if a stud DL or ILB is available first...I would take them...

    Never.
    I've been wanting a CB in the 1st for the last 3 years.
    We don't have one actual number 1 corner on this team, and since You need 2, and more many times.....I just think it would be nice to have at least one real CB. They showed last night (for the millionth time) that .
    How many different guys did they try on Higgins, and to see all of them fail.
    Hell Higgins isn't even their best Wr.
    We desperately need a real CB, and have since Haden started showing His age.

    I understand they have been putting band-aids on this secondary for years. The best due they've had was Nelson and Haden. But they will never put CB that high of value before DT and ILB. He would have to be viewed as the next "Deion Sanders or Rod Woodson". Especially with the huge hole at ILB.
    You have Miles Jack, Spillane and Bush. Compared to Wallace, Sutton, and Maulet. I could live with Wallace and Sutton but Spillane and Bush are absolutely horrible. And what does it say when Spillane is your 3rd down backer.

    Rejoice! An even older and higher paid defense that is the defending SB Champs lost to the team that this old and overpaid defense dominated a week ago. Huzzah.

    We will have to agree to disagree. Because right now on LB We have Watt, Highsmith, and Jack who are all above average LBs, and on the DL We still have Heyward, but on the whole DBs period....We have one guy above average, and that's Minkah.....all the rest of the DB group are average, and that is sad when We have to have 4-5 of them out there at all times. That's all I'm saying. :thumbs_up:

    Really need to come up with a shutdown corner.
    And get some speed at LB.

    The offense wasn't perfect, but it is hard to blame them for losing a game when they scored 30 points.

    They actually have to be able to coach them after drafting them. That seems to be where the problem may lie...

    At first I’m thinking we need O line no matter what! But yeah BPA right now because we have so many needs. IlB is needed as much as O line. CB we probably have to shop for I don’t trust to draft.

    OG
    OT
    MLB
    DE
    CB
    QB

    so many needs

    We also need a good scheme into which these players will fit. And smart players. Many of the big plays seem to be due to miscommunication or bad decisions, not just physical talent.

    I said somewhere, that if you kept Wallace and picked up a shutdown guy, Wallace might be improved by that.
    What I like about him is that he can catch... a lot of CB's have hands of stone.
    I just don't think he is a feature DB.

    We need a defensive back enema. It is full of #3/#4 corners.

    Don't worry right now Tomlin is scouring through game film of the University of Maryland to find his next diamond in the rough.

    The best corner ever would suck under Tomlin and company take that to the bank.
