    Good breakdown. I agree with your opinion about Church. As long as he is the starter at SS, the position will need upgraded. This defense needs speed and Church doesn't have it. There is questions about every player of the defensive side of the ball .

    Define *above average* ?

    Is that less than Pro Bowl but more than just a starter?

    I'm confused..

    Can I buy a lifeline?

    what's with the Influx of people trying to define the word "is" around here lately? Is it a tactic to obfuscate the truth

    What is there to define? You have your average, and then you have everything above it.

    We'll see about Melton. If he comes back in good form, he counts.

    With Lee out, that's it.

    If we want to do non starters or nickel situations, we can add Scandrick. If he starts, then maybe not.

    But I think potentially A few others have shot this year. More later.

    In any case, it's fairly bleak pre camp.

    No need for that. But the question you ask deals with such an unbelievable amount of speculation that no one can give an educated answer. We don't know for certain who will be starting in which positions throughout most of the defense.

    It has been a so long since we had "everything above it" on defense that we have forgot what it means or what it looks like.

    I guess this question get answered during the season. Defensively this is going to be a very young unit with not a lot of experience.

    Carr, Scandrick, Lee, Melton and Church.

    Church is better than average.

    Lawrence will be above average but maybe not the first year.

    Melton certainly is, if he can return to form off the injury. Scandrick. Maybe Carter. He's such an enigma.
