Barring Ras-I being up to speed quicker than I expect, I think they are still looking to add one more body there. I have a nagging feeling that it will be via a trade.
My nagging feeling is, with the "attacking" defense - not having a good all-around starting-quality safety back there is going to be an issue.
You don't have to convince me. All three championship teams had a strong pairing of starting safeties. I'm hoping NE invests heavily in the position next offseason, either with two picks in the first 4 rounds or a 2nd rounder and a major FA acquisition.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Dowling get some work at safety. He has the size to be able to play it.
If he's the most gifted athlete the coach has ever seen, and if he can do it all, I'm not sure why it took "several years" to get it. For example I can think of a QB who hadn't started a a game (in fact had barely played) since HS, some 8 years previous who started fifteen games and won 10 the first year he cracked the lineup. And probably the only reason he hadn't started sooner is that he was stuck behind a pretty good QB who sorta wouldn't let him play. All seriousness aside the Jets are a formidible oponent but the hyperbole is really amusing. And the O keeps getting scarier.Jests homer article about the greatness of ROT Wayne Hunter.
