    Can't tell if srs.

    First team All-Pro.

    Could very well win defensive player of the year.

    Best player on the best defense in the NFL.

    He's actually widely regarded as the key component of Seattle's success in their defensive scheme.

    Screams JAG to me.

    TJ Ward is an interesting name to bring up. If anyone knows about him it's Jerome Henderson, who helped develop him in Cleveland. However, I believe TJ is a strong safety and we really need a true FS. I'm sure he'll get a look but if they pass on him it's for good reason and not because of lack of knowledge.

    Can't help but wonder what the discussion was before Will Allen was benched and then cut. He went back to Pittsburg and helped them win some games with interceptions etc. I always wondered if there was some intervention from our GM/DC. Allen wasn't a world beater but he knew his way around back there a lot better then our rookies.

    He took that guaranteed contract money with him to Pitt as well. Good question tbh. He was burned for a few gainers but something must've gone down in-house for such a drastic change in direction so early in the season. It would be hard to imagine veteran defensive coaches being so gung ho to go with UDFA/3rd choices over a veteran (albeit average) without some kind of internal dissention between the Allen and the team.

    Probably considered him a "progress stopper". Our secondary was rough with him going full rookie did not work either.

    Agreed.

    I think Wilcox and Heath, physically, could be a great combination back there. Heath in particular though is really far away from being NFL ready.

    A full offseason will really help Wilcox, I'd be surprised if he wasn't a starter on opening day.

    Scandrick might have the worse ball skills in NFL history.

    Thank you, thank you very much. Considering the source, I'll take that as a compliment any day, any day. Maybe even twice on Fridays.:)

    Man Earl Thomas is so mediocre. I'm glad he is not Dallas' starting safety.
