    Our safties all stink in coverage asside from Huff and if he stays at cb I can see us drafting a fs pretty early. Branch and Mitchell are solid tacklers but have no business in anything other than zone in coverage. With how well Huff is doing he should stay at cb when Bartell comes back then we will have 4 solid corners. I have a funny feeling Spencer is another lisfranc cause they will not give much info about it. Bartell and Huff as the starters with Hanson in the nickel and Lee as the dime.

    I would also like to see Chekwa get a chance at some point. Who knows maybe he can be the answer at fs he played cb and fs for the buckeyes.

    Giordano lead the Raiders in interceptions last year. He had 5. Can you think of somebody on that staff thats better?

    But we will be completely healthy excluding Barnes and Ford.

    The defense is climbing out of the whole the miami and Denver games created statistically. we have moved into 12 against the Run believe it or not and 22nd against the pass.They are shaping into a very competitive unit.lets see if getting those three players pushes us into a top 10 D

    Mike Mitchell sucks, too. He just tries to get to "the big hit" and often misses tackles that should be completed. Not a smart player. Praise, Bob.

    When our two starting corners are back Huff goes back to FS, but he will be a great nickle back if he were to be replaced at FS. I wouldn't hold my breath though, cause we don't have a better FS.

    Mitchell is a SS and no one ever said pass coverage was his strong suite.

As far as Mitchell goes...He's not a very good coverage safety, And I think he's more of a SS than a FS. I could almost see him as a OLB more than a safety. Put about 15 or 20 more lbs. and I think he would make a solid OLB. Mitchell reminds me a lot of Roy Williams (the safety not the reciever) that used to be with Dallas. Not very good in coverage, But will lay you down with a hit, Mitchell is a lot the same way.
    He's listed like 5lbs less than Geno Hayes OLB for the Bears.

    lol, we've wasted breath against the true culprits for our lack-luster start so now we have to resort to attacking good role-players.

    What's the point having good role models who can't do what they preach. Football is a game won and played physically not verbally.

    Cool. I have been noticing improvements every game and love the fact that we are getting pretty solid against the run. This makes the pass defense better too!

He's always getting beat. He has the worst angles.He dosnt have football smarts and his size dosnt help him at all.Why not start Mitchell I mean the guy is a big hitter that can cause fumbles or drop passes and he can't be much worse than Giordano. I feel like this guy keeps us from being a better defense. Our defense will be good on 1st and 2nd down and on 3rd all I see is a deep bomb from a QB and Giordano miles away trying to catch up to the receiver. He kills the momentum. I don't mean to be negative after a win it's just stressful seeing this guy out there. Hes not even good depth.
    Probably because Mitchell missed so many tackles that they brought him in to tackle.

    Giordano was 3rd on the Raiders last year with 75 tackles. And he wasnt even a starter all year.

    Mitchell had a total of 30 tackles last year. He is a waste of space.

    Proof is in the numbers. Giordano has more tackles in 1 and a half years than mitchell has had in 4.
