This is actually sparked because of what happened in the "Released Chris Gamble" thread in NFL News, where it was pointed out how shoddy our secondary is but how good our front seven is, though our defensive tackles do blow. Which got me thinking. What strategy do you think it'd be best for us to take?

A) Fix the secondary that is completely void of any talent

or

B) Continue to improve an already good front seven, adding more interior pass rushers and basically going the Giants route?

Of course we could always do both... target DTs in free agency and then use our first round pick on a corner or safety. But just in general, which strategy do you think would be better? Our secondary is so horrible but yet we saw last season how a good to great front seven can sometimes mask that. And while they may have been unclutch (VERY unclutch), they were actually pretty darn good after Week 4 or so because of the front seven.

Didn't we go to the Super Bowl with two undrafted corners starting? With that said, however, I think we need at least two starting caliber safties on the roster, which we do not.

I still think making the front 7 even better is the best option, but we couldn't simply ignore our secondary, as it has become pretty abismal at this point.

Fix the secondary, Please god fix the secondary. We need to make a move on a decent CB or S in FA and draft CB and S in the first 2 rounds like Vaccaro or Elam in the first and Trufant (fingers crossed) or Slay at CB in the second

Let's improve what we are already strong at and that's our front 7. If we can get some capable DTs, we can be a very good defense.

I disagree I believe Godfrey is easily a starting safety for us.

I think we should improve our front seven through FA and then draft a secondary to start them out young so they can grow into talented yet groomed DBs.

Well I think he is too. I said we need two starting caliber safties on the roster, we only have one. Wink

i would say dt then s. IMO our cbs will grow and improve this year and if we get pressure on the qb that'll force them into errors and ints. and we need a safety to make people think twice about challenging us deep or over the middle.

A good pass rush is a secondary's best friend. The less time a QB has to throw, the easier it is to cover receivers. We need help in both areas, but DL is the priority in my opinion.

With that being said, we can't have Nakamura starting. I can't believe he is in the NFL still.

The only player people are mocking to us now is Sheldon Richardson. Do we really want to risk a 1st on a DT? Always seems risky to me.

I'm not a fan of Richardson. If we take him, we take him and that's that. Just don't believe he has enough tape to warrant the selection. He's this year's Michael Brockers.
