My own four at safety are Jones, Heath, Frazier, and Woods. Youth movement.
Contract will certainly be a factor if it's close.
Their receiving core was fine last season.
It's just that their OL and QB stinks.
I think it comes down to Robert Blanton or Marquez White.......they keep White over Blanton
I like White's length.
Thanks for that -- it's exactly what I was hoping to see . . .
Well, actually, they were good enough to beat us in both games last year, so there's that to fully digest as well. I'd really like to deny it but can't. Despite their weak links, they are what they are and we still need to outplay them, come what may.
I am talking about their offense. They didn't beat us because of their offense.
We do need to play better against their defense though.
I think we lost as a result of our poor defense and their offense being capable of scoring more than we did. We'll also have to find a way to make our passing game more productive to keep their defense from cheating up front to thwart our running game. I'm hoping we'll succeed in doing so.
Add in the TE they drafted too...
No doubt, but I'd feel pretty confident IF our D.Line wasn't such colossal *** ups. I mean, if they were intact and not suspended for various offenses, we would be just fine. As it is? Could be a long night.
I hope not -- what I'd really like to see is for us to pick off Eli about three or four times and score on them at will. Is that asking so much? But yeah, our guys need to make better decisions in the offseason, that's for sure.
How will we know is these guys are better or not?
More interceptions better pass coverage or just beat Green Bay in playoffs and the Giants?
They scored 20 points and 13 points Baknsg them.
Their offense stunk---their defense shut down our rookie QB. That sums it up.
I'm all for taking responsibility for our losses but Eli and the Giants OL was awful last season...they had a good season and beat us twice because of their defense.
I surely don't underestimate their defense -- they made our offense look worse than anyone else did. I just hate playing them before our revamped defense has a chance to get their feet on the ground sufficiently, though, but perhaps we'll do better than I think we might. Their WR corps has been retooled enough for Eli to have some new weapons at his disposal.
Maybe their new WRs won't be fully acclimated to their offensive system enough to give our defense fits in game one. I'm hoping that to be the case. To be totally candid, I give Eli way more credit than you do, even though he's getting longer in the tooth now. He gets rid of the ball quickly enough to give most teams fits and we've been no exception to that dilemma. Let's just see if our defense can do any better this year, though.
In any case, Dak should be better equipped to read their defense and I think our offense will be better with both Dak and Zeke further developed. It'll be a dogfight again, no doubt. Here's hoping the results work in our favor this year. It's high time for us to beat the Giants if we're destined to win our division this year before they do. I don't think there's any question but what they'll be our main obstacle. May the best team win.
I think Jaylon Smith is the key to the Dallas revamped secondary because there isn't anyone else that can potentially replace the tackles of Barry Church. ...and don't say Heath, that's like Merryweather vs McGregor, if it was a REAL FIGHT! (and Barry Church was McGregor...
It will definitely be a big challenge. But will it be bigger or lesser than if we had last years secondary is the question.
This is where by having the veteran players around will help some. Scandrick, and Brown in his 2nd year, Jones, and then Heath if he lives up to his off season billing (which I do question). Also we have Carroll, and Blanton, if he makes the team. Then Frazier in his 2nd year, if he makes the team as well.
so how much playing time will the rookies get, and in what situations. So we may have a formidable group back there as opposed to previous years.
Also if they pass rush is improved, and it's a big if, but there is no reason at this point we should not believe it hasn't improved. That will help the secondary play.
Plus they have Eli throwing to them........
However, yes, there are reasons for concerns.
He needs to get himself into better shape though.
Prediction: eli is picked off twice in the opening game,, Hanna.
