Default Re: 10 observations from Steelers vs. Redskins

Gay was solid in the nickel package for us last season, but he can not step into the #2 CB slot. I'm uncomfortable with BMac as the #2 CB, but I'm wayyy more comfortable with him than Gay. I'm desperately hoping that one of the young guys steps up by the time Sept. 11th rolls around. I'm not asking for a starter, but just someone to give us a little depth.

I love our defensive system. I love the way that we use the pressure to disrupt the offense. But every once in a while we come across a QB (Brady, Manning, Rodgers) that can get the ball to a receiver in a split second. In those cases, all liability falls onto the secondary. At this point, our secondary just isn't strong enough to take on that responsibility.
