    If we move our best cover guy to safety we will be the dumbest team in America.

    You can get way more people to play safety but to have a shutdown corner wasted on safety would be beyond stupid imo. if anything we drafted a safety let branch play that spot he is a great player and in time will be one of our best defenders. Branch and Gibril and move huff to db don't give up on him just yet we need to build the kids confidence it seems to be in the gutter at this point.

    We dont have anything to lose now, ****, put Wakefield at Full back while we're at it! LOL!
    That's nothing compared to Gallery's (paraphrasing) "there's a lot of stuff I can do but there's some stuff, football stuff I can't do" SOLID!!!

    Namdi should go to free safety, And Huff should go to 3rd Corner, with Hall at #1 and Routt at #2.

    Hmm I dont really want to Aso to move to FS. I understand that it could help to make plays but he pretty much shuts off his side of the field. Even tho thats not getting the ball back that is very good and hard to find.

    If we put another CB out there it gives them a chance to throw that way and as well and they can still find ways to keep the ball away from Aso. I would just prefer to leave him at CB and try something else out S.

    I would like to see Branch get more chances at FS. He has some skills although Im not ready to call him great I dont see how it could hurt to give him a shot. See what he can do and if he has a chance to be our starter.

    LOL. That's the best you can do? That's of course if this is directed at me.

    Big - BIG - HUGE difference between rod and aso...if you can't figure out the OBVIOUS reason between them, then well.....

    STFU? Why should I Sit There Fishing Upstream? I don't get it.

    Why, awfully bold of you to pop off? How am I going to teach you about football young Jedi?

    Woodsen was moved to safety because he flat out couldn't cover anymore. Randy Cross (who I dont like) said Woodsen was the most overrated defender in the NFL when he was in Oakland.

    You dont move him to safety; the Raiders have really only one good cover guy.

    Also, since the dude that I think tried calling me out with Woodson hasn't replied..the other obvious reason he was and could have been moved too.... ah wait..I'll wait to see if he can come up why it's a totally different situation.

    Here's your prize Ice!

    Putting L.T. at MLB is a better choice IMO.

    Welcome to the internet where you are free to post stupid sh*t...

    BTW: I was d-mac before Darren McFadden was even born......so don't go there girlfriend.

    At this point, I believe Rivers played LB in college...might as well experiment with him to.

    The irony of all of these hypothesis is:

    If we decide to continue Rob Ryan's "Wait and see" approach to defense,
    it won't matter who's playing where, because we still won't be pressuring the quarterback.

    Maybe if we blitzed consistently, we could consistently make plays on the ball because there would be more errant throws by opposing quarterbacks looking to get rid of it.

    Since we seemingly can't get to the quarterback regularly, it would make any Secondary package we come up with moot.

    With 5 or 6 seconds to get open, our receivers could make a play every other down too.

    That said, I think Hall plays way too far off the line of scrimmage regardless of what package we're running.

    DON'T MOVE NNAMDI!!!
    We don't need more questions. We need answers.
