Pretty crappy news.

Awful news. Obviously BB has known this for a while which is why he's been working out so many CBs in the last 10 days.
Maybe a trade? Our cap is only $4M.
For now, Jalen Mills will have to play CB even though he's more of a S in our scheme.
JoeJuan Williams was decent yesterday but still shaky.
Justin Bethel.
Shaun Wade.
Myles Bryant...

So we have JCJackson and a bunch of depth players. Ouch

No need to discuss Gilmore since he wouldn't be playing anyway.

Shaun Wade is just lurking and waiting to be awesome. And he should be better as a slot corner vs outside. What's the deal with his concussion?
I wasn't impressed with Bryant in preseason, but he looked basically okay yesterday.

Maybe that's why they haven't signed anyone? Maybe the Wade concussion is ok now and he's ready to start practicing and playing. Wade is actually a better nickel than on the outside, at least at OSU he was.

N'Keal Harry. Interesting....

I noticed quite a few blocks from him yesterday. And he has a good feisty attitude. Was squaring up to DBs yesterday.

Yeah, it's almost a tell when he's out there in 22 personnel because it's usually a run. He has blocked well. Now if he could actually get open, we'd be in business.

Coming out of next weekend in 2019 our Defense was calling themselves the boogie men and we were 8-0. Let's not put any team into the SB yet, we are less than half way into the season.



the playoffs are at the bottom of those final standings too.
Yeah, well, coming out of next weekend in 2001 we were 5-5 and we won the superbowl.

What you see in the weeks ahead depends on who you are, Tigger or Eyore. It's actually a choice you make.

Excited about football and enjoying the hell out of the season? You are ecstatic and enjoying yourself emmensely this season and don't understand why everyone isn't happy. You are tigger and are very happy.

You are not excited about this season and can't understand why everyone else isn't depressed? You are Eyore and are miserable.

It seems Joejuan is a great corner underneath -- very physical and is able to use his size, which he showed plenty of times yesterday. But the deeper the route, the bigger liability he seems to become.
Which is weird because he has length/range. With his seemingly higher IQ (you don't just walk into Vanderbilt) you'd think he'd be a good Safety option who can cover a lot of ground as opposed to being a quick twitch kinda guy inside or underneath.

Secondary will have to be rebuilt next year. The biggest question is do we pay Jackson CB1 money? He will have offers.

Gilmore left the Pats weeks ago. Why is that relevant here?
Because Chevs seems to think Gilmore's leg was amputated which is why Bill traded him.
It's relevant because this secondary needs him in the worst way.
