    Bell has been our best DB since Surtain/Madison. Its a shame we wasted his best years too.

    Clemons sucks too. Hes all over the field opposite of where the action actually is. Plus hes a SS playing FS, since Irish wouldnt know a true Free Safety if it bit him in the ass(see Gibril Wilson).

    Don't forget his ****ty ball skills...on the Floyd illegal touching penalty, Smith could've easily had an INT

    Fact of the matter is, none of these guys are as good as we thought they were...from the top to the bottom of the roster. Best offensive player, BM, just checks out and drops waaaaay too many for the $$ he gets.
    Best defensive player...hmm..Wake, Dansby, umm...Dansby is a ghost out there..Wake seems to have a play a game and that's it, if at all. Jake Long just doesn't look right out there this season..

    And on top of that, it really looks as if an indifference and lack of effort has taken over. Nuke it from orbit...it's the only way to be sure...

    Chris Clemons does not suck.

    The rest do, though. I am stunned by how bad Smith is playing.

    Clemons is much better than Jones. I don't see how you think Clemons is a strong safety at all. I would say Reshad Jones is more of a strong safety because he is so ****ty in coverage.

    Being a strong safety doesn't mean you suck in coverage. Gibril Wilson wasn't a strong safety playing free safety either. He essentially landed his big contracts with the Raiders and Dolphins off of what he did at Free Safety with the Giants.

    Clemons handled free safety well last season, and the trappings that traditionally come with the position.

    It's not even close, a part of the problem is Jones does not grasp how to disguise a blitz, that is a part of the reason why Db blitzes do not reach the Qb.

    Qb knows it's coming.

    No, but to be a free safety you must be the last line of defense.

    And Reshad Jones is not discipline in his coverages, takes bad angles, and just overall makes BAD DECISIONS.

    Not someone who I want playing at free safety, period. His playstyle is more of a strong safety in this system. We're not playing a Tampa 2 here...

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

    I'm not arguing that Jones hasn't sucked. There's no amount of devil's advocacy I can summon up on that one.

    I'm saying that there's nothing inherently wrong with a bigger, run defending player at free safety, especially if they can make the plays. Chris Clemons did a good job his second year. Gibril Wilson wasn't a bad fit for what the team wanted to do with Pasqualoni, he played poorly on his own accord.

    I don't think Bell is 'THE' problem, but over the last few years of highlights he certainly is 'A' problem. I think we got too fixated this off season on the offense and let the defense ride and now we are paying the price.

    There really wasn't all that much we could have done for the defense aside from maybe getting another situational pass rusher. Honestly I think the base 3-4 is a dead-end. Its players are too hard to find, too easily get replaced on the football field in nickel and dime packages, and it doesn't have that flexible aspect teams were known for in the 3-4 years ago.

    It would probably be easier going with a 4-3 and we have some good personnel for that system.
    Bring this man back into the fold if you want some real leadership on this team.

    I want Chris Clemons back on the damn field ASAP. He is much better and hits with a vengeance.

The defensive line can't get any penetration. All of these things are true, yet no one leaps to defend Yeremiah Bell. You know why? Because even though these things are true it doesn't change the fact that he's not playing well. Just like despite all the excuses you can come up with for Chad Henne, he's not playing well. And when it all boils down to it that's all that matters.

    So seriously, tell me, why is Chad Henne the only player on this team that it's not okay to place blame on? I really want to know the answer.
    Still waiting for an answer to this question. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?
