    I have changed my mind. I know I have said we must draft offensive linemen but Good Lord, do we need safeties. Why is it on every deep pass our CB's are by themselves? I'm not thrilled about the CB's getting beat but seriously, why isn't a safety ever back there to, I don't know, make sure we don't get burnt deep?

    Besides my obvious man crushes on Taylor Mays and Eric Berry there are potentially some really good safeties in this draft. Baltimore's Dawan Landry will be an Unrestricted Free Agent.

    Hamlin must go and Sensabaugh hasn't convinced me yet he should be re-signed. We whiffed badly on DeAngelo Smith but I still have hope for Michael Hamlin.

    By the way, I am not overreacting to tonight' s game. I still like our team for this year. I just think we will struggle until we get a real safety. If you go back and check the posts you'll see I've been calling for a true Free Safety for over a year now.

    The O Line are all on the wrong side of 30. I would not be opposed to two of three first picks on the O Line. Unfortunately since Spencer looks to be a bust I am afraid we will be drafting another pass rusher. I would be thrilled to have Berry by the way.

    I wanted Dawan Landry last offseason.

    We seriously need to cut Hamlin next offseason. Tonight sealed it for me. We really need Eric Berry on this team. Problem is, there's so many holes that need to be filled on this team. I could go 6 different options with our 1st pick and they would all seem ideal.

    I've never understood the Dawan Landry love. he's had 1 good year on a bad 6-10 team.

    Rampage, did you watch the Baltimore-San Diego game yesterday? Landry was all over the place making plays. The kid is a player. Watching a game with talented safeties like Ed Reed, Dawan Landry, and Eric Weddle (San Diego) just before watching our safeties is torture.

    Myron Lewis, FS, Vanderbilt thats what he is listed as

    I say we Go LT - NT if we keep 3-4 if not then Gaurd - then WR
    then maybe a saftey

    this draft year is full of good safties

    Myron Rolle, SS, Florida State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Projected Round (2010): 5-6.


    its a deep year for safeties

    I think we went zero coverage alot.

    But I agree. Lets see some of Michael Hamlin, if he doesnt wow we can cut ties and look elsewhere. Nick Collins or a huge trade for Berry.

    unfortunately no. I haven't gotten a chance to see the Ravens play yet this season. I watched the Stealers at Bears game.

    I'd move either Orlando Scandrick or Mike Jenkins to FS and draft a CB in rd 3 or so to be the #3 CB. That gives us this line-up

    RCB- Terrence Newman
    LCB- Mike Jenkins
    FS- Orlando Scandrick
    SS- Gerald Sensabrough

    and in nickel situations

    RCB- Terrence Newman
    LCB- Mike Jenkins
    Slot- Orlando Scandrick
    FS- Pat Watkins
    SS- Gerald Sensabrough

    This way we have our 3 best DBs on the field at all times (Eric Berry will be drafted and Taylor Mays will be drafted long before our pick) and we won't have to wait for a rookie to develop.

    Scandrick as a FS is a horrible idea.

    I'd just draft another corner, and move Alan Ball to FS

    maybe someone like Oklahoma State CB Perrish Cox, who is also a standout punt and kick-returner

    guess I will watch him this Sunday - see if hes any good -

    how are we suppose to get him ? oh i see

    Collins is in the final year of his contract and he will earn $3.045 million this year. He is unhappy with the lack of discussions about a contract extension.

    so he was a all pro what kind of money you think he be wantin - BIG I bet


    Collins, who went to his first Pro Bowl last season, has skipped almost all of the voluntary offseason practices in protest of the Packers’ unwillingness to negotiate a new contract heading into his fifth NFL season. That leaves the starting safety well behind his teammates in new defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ intensive course this spring and summer on his 3-4 scheme.

    On Wednesday, the Packers’ coaches tried to tutor Collins as much as possible in the limited time they had him, so he stood alongside safeties coach Darren Perry for the long 11-on-11 jog-through portion that opened practice, before going into The Don Hutson Center for individual drills so the team’s strength and conditioning coaches could evaluate his fitness.

    “(Learning this 3-4) is a long process,” said new safety Anthony Smith, who worked in a similar 3-4 scheme with the Pittsburgh Steelers the past three years. “You can ask anybody who’s ever been in it, it takes a couple years to learn it, to really get the concept of it.”


    hmn so give Hamlin an Sensa three years

    just because he was all pro for one team one time does not make him a great player

    hell we had 13 all pros and where we end up ?

    all pros is BS

    Probably top 5 at his position. Roughly where Hamlins deal is at
