    I have this impression that you’re not calling woods average or bad because you are biased for him. He’s in his third year, he’s not incomplete anymore, this is what he is.

    A = Great ; B = Good ; C = Passable ; D = Average/Replaceable ; F = Cut ASAP

    Tank - C
    Quinn - B
    Collins - B
    Woods - C
    LVE - C
    Jaylon - C
    Lee - B
    Chido - B
    Woods - B
    Heath - F
    Jones - A
    Brown - C

    The Secondary has been pretty good(Except Heath), the packers didn’t have a WR or TE go over 50yards, Jimmy Graham only had 41. Below him the next highest is 21yards.

    Even in the Saints game M.Thomas has 95yards but that was mostly Scheme related or backShoulder amazing pass(Impossible to defend). Everyone else 30yards or below.

    Apparently can only contain the worst teams in the league. Not stop. Not control.


    Horrified by the entire unit with the exception of Byron Jones.

    The Hot Boyz and Van Jaylon should unequivocally be completely ashamed of themselves.

    A = Great B = Good C = Average/Slightly Below Average D = Borderline Cut/3rd String F = Cut

    Tank - C
    Quinn - A (By this team's standards)
    Collins - B
    (Xavier) Woods - C
    LVE - C
    Jaylon - B (He's been improving these past few weeks).
    Lee - C
    Chido - C
    (Antwaun) Woods - B (Until he gets back. He's proved that he is needed way more than previously thought for this run game).
    Heath - F (Still don't understand why we aren't use Donovan Wilson here)
    Jones - B
    Brown - D (Lewis needs to start over him immediately. Brown gets at least 10+ penalties a game.)

    Coaching staff that believes in prevent over aggressiveness: Z. They all need to be cut immediately IMO. I want a 49ers like defense.

    Garbage. They’ve beaten no one and can’t stop the run.

    Soft and over rated

    Coming into the season I really thought our starting 3 LBs would be probably the best in the league and maybe one of the best groups historically. Really wrong there.

    It's crazy they're as high as last year. They're not half as good this year so far lol. Apparently a lot of defenses must have declined from last year.

    Grades are for rationalization when the eye test says differently. BBDB isn't cutting it. Best get it right before the playoffs, or we will look like last year's version during the Colts and Rams games.

    And the Purple dranker, he would probably be our best LB.

    Secondary yet again has 1 interception and we have played 5 games. Against the likes of Eli, Keenum, Teddy, Fitz/Rosen. Please stop listing yards as a basis of if a secondary is good. Do they make plays when needed? Not even close. This is the most inept secondary at actually making plays.

    Since you want to use yards, Dak had a great game. Almost threw for 500 yards. See how that works?
