Impressive size, and not horrible coverage, but the guy can't make a play to save his football life. But obviously the Pats had already seen something as they've singled him out all game. Should be four TDs against him and that's just brutal. He seems to have no ball skills. If this secondary is worse than last year just wait to see DJax does to us. Gonna be embarrassing.

Yes. he sucks
No. We don't need a thread

There was really no way he'd make the team before today.

You're right about a Marsh thread but considering he's played so heavily early on, it seems he is in heavy reserve consideration. But beyond him, there is a scary lack of playmakers on defense. I'm loving Chips offense but the defense can't get off the field on third down. Being a thirty year Eagles fan, it pains me to see such bad D. Not used to it.

Nolan was out, Watkins was out, Cary got hurt right at the start, and Boykin is the slot guy and also came out. Those and Roc Carmichael playing like this last week gave him the shot....they didn't really have an option. Yea they could've maybe put Boykin outside, but this is pretty important practice for him in the slot. Patriots use Slot receivers more than almost anybody.

I agree we need guys who can get the ball back and make a play, but we have to get those guys at the top of the depth chart back to see. I'm sure Howie and Co. Are keeping a close eye on cuts and wouldn't be surprised if one of these 3-4 end gets dealt for a depth corner.

I see your point, but if these guys don't play can we trust they will be ready? I fully get the offensive philosophy, speed up the plays and keep defense off balance. However, if you honestly asked me what the defensive philosophy is, I couldn't tell you. Other than the strange fact that they are probably the only defense better on 3rd and short than they are on 3rd and long.

Probably not, he's probably out 3rd best corner...which is just ridiculous. I don't see why we don't jist trade Brandom Graham...or Vinny Curry for another corner.

Cary, Boykin, Bradley, Carroll are all definetly better.
Roc and Watkins are right now around the same level, but you'd give the nod to Watkins being a rookie over them and Roc at least does some special teams. So he's more like 7th "best" corner on the depth chart.

We have our 5 corners heading into the season. We might pick up a waiver guy.

Forgot about Bradley. Still, we need a playmaker in the secondary badly

Five CBs will make the team and Marsh won't be one of them. It's frustrating to see him get toasted but it doesn't actually matter.

If this guy isn't cut, I lose faith in our CB coach.

They both will probably make it unless Kruger, Mays, or Villanueva make a case for themselves. Not that Hart has been way better than them.
