Other than Harrison and Troy....every single starter needs to be put on notice. Every single job should be open after this week.

we already have Burnett and Lewis


But hell, with the way we're playing in the 2ndary. It's not exactly stupid

Unless you want to continue to be scorched by mediocre receivers, yes. William Gay is terrible, Deshea is old, and Ike is incredibly overrated.

Absolutely. If nothing else we need quality backups. Oh I forgot,that who we have starting right now. So I guess we need starters. Troy is great and we need him in there. After saying this any time one player hurt affects your defensive play like this, you can't deny there is a problem. I live in Kentucky and I can smell them from here.

IS THE SKY FALLING YET????

chance to put away the game with the ball thrown right into your bread basket and joe burnett drops it.....so I'm going with a big YES!...I swear that was the easy pick and all he had to do was catch it like a game of toss...WOW

We need help there no doubt, but I still like Lewis as maybe a future starter. I thought the linebackers played pretty well today. Gradkowski did a good job of avoiding pressure and our secondary just can't play the ball.

No, the front seven did not play well. They only had two sacks, but should have had at least six. They also allowed several runs of longer than three yards.

Why? We just drafted two of them. Wait and see if either of them are any good.

our entire CB corps are bums! you're damn right we need to draft CB this year, EARLY AND OFTEN!!! we'd be 8-4 right now had taylor INT'd in OT against KC, and if burnett had INT'd today! inexcusable when these guys get paid what they do!

Other than at QB and the starting RB, the entire roster needs to be looked at.

The QB just needs to quit turning the ball over in the endzone.

In this order, in my opinion, we should draft...

Cornerback
Safety
Cornerback
WR

I say WR if we can't get anything out of Sweed. If we can, awesome, but we need our D to step up. This is downright embarrassing at this point.

Yes, definitely. William Gay has been terrible and Ike didn't look good today. I'd like to see a CB in the 1st or 2nd.

doesn't help that there was zero pass rush on that last drive...

I think gay has outplayed Ike all year. Ike is always getting beat, and its not just this season.

how are you going to only hate one player on the secondary when they ALL got torched by the RAIDERS?

The entire secondary stinks. Besides Troy, if they cut every single one of them tomorrow, I would count it as a plus.

the secondary def. needs to be evaluated. How many times can we keep making the excuse that Troy is hurt thats why we are losing, that only goes so far. How many times were receivers open today and beat the coverage and were overthrown. thank god for them being overthrown it could have been worse than it was today. Not just today but other games have been the same can't get off the field on third downs and big pass plays for first downs.

Its time to play the rookies at corner get some game experience to see what we've got for next year, I want to know what we have to see if we need to make corner a priority in the draft, no suprises! Gay is garbage, Clark although one of my favorites is declining we need to have a secondary that although may decline in production without polamalu( which is to be expected) won't just self destruct. Who's with me?

We need to draft a possession receiver and make him a corner.

Ryan Clark and Troy are Ying and Yang. They both play off each other and each of them play better when the other is on the field. I don't think Troy would want to lose Ryan Clark.

I agree, but Mundy should never see the field again and Ike Taylor is sooooo overrated and over paid...and lil Willie Gay. Corners are a mess; Joe Burnett didn't help his case by dropping a pass right in his bread basket.

I agree our secondary stinks but if you dont think troy is that important consider this:

with him in the game we beat both Minnesota and Denver(in denver while they were playing well)

without him we've lost to kc and oakland
