    All four (Chung, Meriweather, Sanders and McGowan) should make the 53 man opening day roster.

    If they cut one, it's McGowan.

    Re: Which Safety to cut?

    They have 5 safeties. McGowan, Meriweather, Chung, Sanders, and Lockett. Take out Lockett because he is a ST player. 

    Meriweather is the best of the group. He goes nowhere. IF he can learn how to be an effective tackler he'll be one of the best in the league. Right now, he has a ton of potential. 

    Chung is the cheapest of the group. Too much potential to let go after just one season. 

    Sanders is the most experience, He knows Belichick's defense enough to call secondary plays. 

    McGowan... he gets the boot if they give any the boot. Not much I can say about him.

    The safety position is a place where if they decide to go with 3 they will trade Sanders. Start Chung and Merriweather and have McGowan and Locket as backups. 

    Too much tallent to cut any of them. If they don't find someone to trade for them they will just keep all of them. That I am sure of.

    I just hope they all finally learn how to play the position.  I'm sick of seeing the opposition converting 3rd and shorts, 3rd and longs and 3rd downs in general.  A Red Zone stop every now and then would be cool also.

    Tcal2... I hear you but the safties are not as big of an issue. The problem with third downs was the teams knew they didn't have to worry about the pass rush. Hopefully Cunningham is the right piece with the other changes they will make.

    Cunningham? Are you saying the Patriots drafted Ritchie Cunningham? Wow, what will the Fonz say to that?

    I would try to keep them all, each one brings something.

    I think they are going to keep them all. The Pats have a habit of drafting safeties that they believe can play a little corner too if needed. I think the Pats will look at D-Back as a whole and just keep the best guys if there is a surplus there.

    Not to mention safeties getting caught flat footed and watching players run by them. It was a pretty ugly year last year all the way around. I think Spikes and a healthy Mayo could be the X-Factor on defense for us this year. I'd also like to see cornerbacks that don't play 10 Yds off the WR in the Redzone.Now that I think about it we did pretty good just to make the Playoffs last year with the kind play we got last year.

    This was maddening to me at times last year as well, but I think it goes along with their zone scheme where they prefer to keep the action in front of them and are fine with giving up the short/intermediate type gains vs. getting beat over the top.  I also think this is where you'll see the value of the upgrade in CB talent with Butler and McCourty possessing the athleticism, agility, short area quickness, instincts and ability to close quickly on the football minimizing gains after the catch or breaking up the pass.  This skill set may also allow them to give up less of a cushion at the LOS.

    e and mb from what I read McCourty is supposed to be a good press corner.  That would be great for a change since there is nothing worse then a 2nd and 6 and your CB isn't even visible on your TV screen.

    Re: Which Safety to cut?

    See no reason to cut any of the safeties.  Good athletes, good football players; yes, there are some shortcomings but they're fixable.

    The BB approach to defense requires that all of the parts come together to funciton as a unit.  Just because a safety gets beaten doesn't necessarily mean that the safety that appears to be at fault is in fact at fault. 

    Improved pash rush, upgrades at the corners, better linebacking, all will combine to make for better safety play.

    My 2 cents.

    Springer is a guy who has no one around to talk to....oh, maybe a wall or four? He's looking for the attention his mommy didn't give him.

    Re: Which Safety to cut?

    I think Chung, Meriweather, Sanders and McGowan are here to stay for a while.  BB's trying to make a strength out of a team weakness.  He's drafting for the secondary, has been developing Chung, Meriweather and McGowan.  Sanders came back into the fold at the end of last year and performed well. 

    Resigning Bodden, drafting McCourty and continuing to develop Butler and Wilhite will make them a tough team to pass against.  If the opposing QB has to hold the ball a little longer, then we have more opportunities to get sacks.  We've added Spikes and Cunningham who seem to work well together at Florida, in a similar system.  Mayo will be healthy.  Wilfork should add much needed leadership. 

    If you're worried about trimming to 53 warm bodies, wouldn't it make more sense to look at our aging RB's??

    Re: Which Safety to cut?


    If i had to pick one it would be McGowan. Ideally, I would like to keep all 4..not counting Lockett or Slater. Don't care much for either. 

    How can we turn a safety into an RDE?...Anybody have any suggestions for a trade or two that might be beneficial for both teams?

    Gerrard Warren is a solid defensive lineman, what more do you want...  he is roughly the same age as Seymour but at a lower salary.

    None of them are getting cut. This team has talent, youth, experience, and depth at safety. Next season they will have one of the best groups of safeties out there.
