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.

^^^ LOL Really
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.

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.
