In response to TripleOG's comment:
Did everyone see our D without Talib? If we dont have his replacement, letting him walk is big mistake. Dennard is a shaky # 2 iMO, and wouldnt want to see him as a # 1
Tillman?? The guy has played in Chicago his whole career. That means ALL COVER 2. He can hit and force fumbles but probably hasnt played man coverage his whole career.
He also played for a D that had Peppers the last few years and in general until last season has always been a very good D. Coming here he would really look old and slow when needing to play man. we play lots of cover 2 but arent a strictly cover 2 like Chicago.
Ryan Clark is DONE and cant even play in Denver. DRC JUST changed his ways and became competent THIS year but I dont think he is great. He holds a lot and wasnt called for holding OUR guys but he will get that break playing for us?? Not likely
Talib is best option as he knows the system. BB used him in many ways last year, all successful. Get him surgery and PAY DA MAN!
Good point made on Tillman OG but he is a good player who I would trust in here and would be a good cheap backup. he can create turnovers, which when we get.. we win.
i agree that Dennard isnt a #1 CB the size kills him but he is a decent #2 when matched up with the right player. he would be a beast in the slot imo. hopefully Ryan can play #2 this year so Dennard can mvoe to the slot.
Clark may be done true, but Pollard or Whitner can still play and Pollard especially can be cheap and be a HITTER and effective. which is what this defense lacks big time.
agree on Talib. I think his market will be low so it wont take 9-10 a year to sign him but I would go as high as 7-8 now that I think about it. We need him. even if theres an injury issue. I dont trust DRC like you said he came on strong late, besides that he's nothing.
