Ok so the question that everyone is asking IS........ ARE OUR DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD PROBLEMS SOLVED????????
Being the optimistic person that i am, i would say YES!!!!!! Ok here me out....
First down setup: Henry and Newman at the corners and Roy and Hamlin at the safeties. This is all hinging on Roy being the old Roy like he said he was going to be this year at the end of last year. If he is not then the packages goes as follows.
2nd and 8. With our defense only giving up 2 yards on first down, this becomes a passing situation. Henry and Pacman ( or Jenkins) at the corners, Newman on the slot and Hamlin at Free Safety. This would be our nickel package.
3 and 8. Dime package. Henry and Pacman at the corners, Newman on the slot and Jenkins as Free Safety, and Hamlin as Strong Safety.
*Remember Ware, Ellis, Ratliff, and Spencer will be creating havoc up front. Our interceptions should go up by at least 5 more than we had last season! No more Plaxico long bombs and sorry i am slow as molasses Amani Toomer beating us. Also Shockey( if he ends up staying with them) or Kevin Boss will be shut down, cause now you can put Jenkins on them and he should shut them down.
Special Teams: Pacman taking it to the House on punt returns. ( If he plays the whole season he will probably only have one punt return for a touchdown, no more than two. Hey, hes been out of football for a year so he wont have all his mojo with him yet. Altho one or two touchdowns will be more than what we had ALL SEASON with Crayton!!!!! lol
Felix Jones and Miles Austin on kickoff returns. I only see one touchdown for each BUT there will be at least 18 returns taken to the 40 yard line of the opponents side of the field!!!!! And i also see 4 kickoffs going out of bounds cause the opponents are scared of their ability and we get the ball at our 40 to start the drive!!!!
Overall i only see the Boys winning 12 games this year, maybe 11 but i think we will be a better team at 12-4 or 11-5 THIS year than 13-3 LAST year!!!
Does that make any sense? If not than go ahead and shoot holes in my theory. LMAO i am a big boy , i can take it!!! Lol
