I think if/when Locker and the offense start finding their stride, the D is ok. The offense just can't stay on the field, forcing the D out there early and often... and all D's, with that constant pressure and lack of support will crack.

I just don't know how or why Griff has been asked to move back to SS... but that needs to stop now. 16 tackles or not.. he's not a SS. (if you want to call runners tripping over a trucked over Griffin a tackle is a matter of semantics...

Spot on. The DL actually had good pressure most of the day, although they weren't really able to seal the deal. The LBs are pretty good, especially when McCarthy is on the field. The secondary is not so great, but if the DL keeps improving the secondary will appear better and better.

I think Babineaux is the only real SS available with any degree of experience. I'm still perplexed on how he lost his job.

Guys, I think we can all agree that if there is an interior Olineman worth a first round pick next year, we should take him.

I'm really liking what I see from Kendall Wright and Zach Brown so far, but I still can't help but wonder how things would have turned out if we had taken DeCastro and Konz. I think Wright and Brown have much higher potential down the road, but it's clear now that our OLine issues weren't solved at all. If even one of them was an average starter on our team, we'd be a lot better. Which says a lot about the Oline.

With where we could be picking if this keeps up there is no OL in this draft with that kind of value. Barrett Jones would be the closest though.

Agreed. If we dont improve, we could be picking top 3, maybe #1. Crying or Very sad

We're not as bad as the Chiefs so we won't be picking #1. Top 3 is possible though.

Babs was pretty horrible last year... which made his contract extension very perplexing to me. He was basically an undersized yet slow LB last year. He could not cover to save his life, and was caught out of position way too often to really be a strength against the run. I'm actually split as to who's worse at SS.

I would still leave Griffin at FS and let him do the thing he sucks least at... playing CF out there (although, honestly, he's been pretty horrible at even that the past 35 games or so, constantly letting people get past/behind him... which is the #1, #2, and #3 assignments for a CF FS).

Putting aside the talent I know lays hidden or dormant on our roster, I don't think anyone has played worse than us in the first two weeks. -49 point differential is beyond pathetic... to put in perspective, that's worse than the Jags and Browns... combined!!

26% on 3rd downs (allow 55% on D, 2nd worst)... -2 TO differential... and last in the league in first downs per game with 12.5 per game (give up a league worst 26 per game), points per game (11.5, give up 36, 2nd worst) and rushing yards (a number too pathetic to even type here)... under 23 minutes in TOP per game... that's the worse team in the NFL after week 2.

You're right, but I'll say Griffin is worse because he's so expensive. And to get Ruskie riled up.
