No safeties? Confused


PFT

Quote:
After veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield was cut by the Seahawks, he quickly announced a plan to retire.

That plan has not yet been formalized.


How would Winfield look at S?

Then again, there might be extra incentive to retire:

Quote:
Another question for Winfield arises not from filing retirement papers but from behaving as if he’s truly retired. All retired players (i.e., players not employed by a team and not seeking employment) at the time Judge Anita Brody gives preliminary approval to the concussion settlement will be eligible for compensation if he has or develops a severe cognitive impairment.

Assuming Winfield is healthy, retiring now becomes insurance against the development of dementia, Alzheimer’s, or ALS. While filing retirement papers isn’t required to prove that a player is retired, it wouldn’t hurt.


Think Ted would match a possible future settlement?

For those of you who are looking for ted to replace some of these DB's you should read this article

http://cheeseheadtv.com/...adTv+%28Cheesehead+TV%29

and you should listen to the podcast in this article

http://cheeseheadtv.com/...m-capers-for-week-1-loss

Both of these news articles are in the feed, didn't see any reason to start a new thread.


Dont agree with the article. Its like hes essentially saying we put more pressure on the dbs with this gameplan therefore our best safetywouldnt help? Makes no sense to me ands seems backward. With the gameplan the dbs wereextra important.

You don't have to agree.

I guess these guys put a lot into breaking down every play and player and it seems McMillian and Hyde had bad days(which can be accepted due to the fact they are young and will have plenty of growing pains).

As far as Jennings, he gave up a td, but his play other than that graded out pretty solid.

Love this day and age of instant analysis of plays and instant judgement of players.

2 reasons you won't see me in game day chat when game starts, too much negativity for my taste, win or lose I enjoy sitting back and watching 2 GREAT football teams go at each other, and that is what we had last Sunday.

That's EXACTLY what happened, as I have said a couple of times (although Burnett might have helped). Capers devised a plan to stop Kaepernick from running. It worked - use all your linebackers in containment, none in coverage and almost never blitzing. Unfortuantely, that CURE did put too much pressure on the DBs to cover. I honestly can't think of a better solution. Can you?

As for this thread, IMO they correctly identified the problem area. They couldn't change O Line coaches in the middle of the season - what team ever did that successfully? [grin1] (Badgers)

Our ILBs were better than I expected (still not much good), and we probably have backups better than our two starters - no need for tryouts.

I wish they would bring in a couple of kick returners. Unlike almost every other position, a guy can be plugged in there almost immediately if he seems to be better.

Sure. I can think of a cure. Keep the offense off the field. Give them fewer chances.

Or just keep up with that "no huddle" bullshit.
