I will also be interested to see if Jordan Bernstein can come back after his knee injury. I didn't get to see much of him, but if I recall he showed a lot of promise before getting hurt in the season opener.

Come to think of it we lost another person (Chase Minnefield) in our secondary due to a knee injury as well.

Stupid injury bug bit us hard this year. :lowblow:

With those two players back, I wonder how aggressive they will be in finding other Safeties.


I would assume that they would have a contingency plan in place... A solid contingency plan.

Well, we never really had Chase. But, I def get your point and the bug got us good this year. We will have a lot of guys coming back next year.

Carriker
Orakpo
Minnifield
Tanard
Merriweather

That's that's A LOT of talent right there.

I look forward to him healing up and getting on the field next year. Best case scenario, both he and Tanard come back and can start next year. With an off-seasons worth of attention dedicated to the position.


- If Gomes doesn't really break out in the remaining games, we need someone to potentially start/backup Merriweather next year.
- I'd bring Tanard back and make him earn his money but draft/acquire someone who could start if he doesn't pan out. I think the Patriots showed on Sunday night what kinda pay-off a "risky" player can provide. Hopefully Tanard gets it together.
- As far as the CB's, I'm curious to see what that kid we put on IR in the off-season can do. He was a potential 2nd round pick that fell to us (undrafted), he could make some noise.

Sorry fellas, no negativity. Just realistic well wishing.


Bernstien AND Minnifield should both be hungry next training camp. both have a lot of promise...
Hall gets a pay cut (if we even keep him) but i like the idea of moving him to safety/ nickel, and letting him be a ball hawk and blitz him way more. He does good when we let him loose after the qb imo

...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!

Man alive I hope Meriweather's injury isn't a recurring problem? In his lone game he looked pretty good. If he's out all next season I'll be severly disappointed. :(
