You're making this more difficult than it truly is, or I'm freaking missing the boat!

Current
LCB - Tramon Williams
RCB - Sam Shields

FS - Morgan Burnett
SS - Charles Woodson


Proposed
LCB - Tramon Williams
RCB - Charles Woodson

FS - Sam Shields
SS - Morgan Burnett



That is the end of the trickle down effect. The nickel back is still Casey Hayward and the dime back is still ... shit whoever it is.



Davon House, hopefully.

no.

I don't think Sheilds would be good in support of the run.

He really has shied away from making the tackle in the past. (He is doing better this year.)

Woodson does a pretty good job in his current role as jack of all trades but to line him up outside against speed all game long is a detriment to his current abilities.

It weakens the CB position. It could bring Bush on to the field sooner. I would rather see McMillian and Jennings see more playing time than Bush.

Shields would have to practically start all over on the learning curve as a safety. Granted he probably knows more about safety now than he did about CB when the Packers signed him but that isn't saying a whole lot.

Woody's the slot corner. He's more suited there, because he's lost a step. Hayward is the backup slot guy. He's more suited there, because of his size. Bush is the third slot corner.

Williams, Shields and House can play the outside better than those other guys.

Then you have the S's.

I don't ever expect to see anyone as good as Nick Collins. He was the best I've ever seen.

But McMillian's got a TON of potential.

It would not weaken any position unless you think Shields is better than Woodson at CB.

Shields to S
Woodson to CB

The packages and everything stay the same.

I'm not sure if it's really worth the discussion of moving guys to other starting position, as they do not play anything near the starting formation for most of the game. IIRC Woodson played only a few snaps as a real SS early in the game, other than that he was mostly lined up near the LOS. Not wondering at all about that as the Packers constantly played multiple DB sets throughout the game and McMillian/Jennings and Burnett did well back there. So why shift Woodson into the backfield if he can line up where he's best?

At this point in time, I'd say no because I love the way McMillian is playing. That kid is going to do some work back there for years to come. Shields plays well where he is at now and asking him to learn another new position would be a lot to ask for. CB is becoming his natural position now.

He isn't going to be Collins or Ed Reed even playing well. He is actually more of a SS than FS. It means we have to play 2 deep which makes the holes in the zones bigger. If we could get somebody deep that can cover the entire deep field, it makes it possible for the others to tighten coverage underneath.

Until Shields is beaten out of his corner slot, you can't even think of moving him to safety. And right now he is a starter with House getting closer to getting back on the field. When House eventually supplants Shields, then Haywood has to do the same. When Shields is our dime corner - then you can entertain those thoughts. But until then, he's a corner.

I'm not sold on Woodson at safety yet. He does not have the speed to play center field. Wood is a man without a traditional position - and basically is a wild card for Capers to play with.

No.

I don't think he has the physicality to play the position.

Shields had a rough week, but for the most part I think he has played decently this season. Let's see how it works today, I have a feeling that this may be a week where the Packers defense gets to work on some things during the game.

Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.

uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.

uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
