I'm actually impressed with Worilds outside of the injuries though.

He sacked Peyton Manning in week one and recorded three tackles. Also managed to grab a tackle this week. He showed a great deal of speed, and he's a pretty strong looking guy as well. Outside of his injuries he's played great when given the chance. I recall him grabbing two sacks in San Francisco last year as well.

They have nobody, including Ryan Clark, that can make a play on the ball, who's name is not Troy. Golden showed some glimpses of that in the preseason, but who knows how that works out, right now he's practice squad material. Can't bank on it. We have no quality depth behind Troy and Clark. And NO ballhawks to speak of,

Even Troy, he's a playmaker, but not exactly a ballhawk. Ryan Mundy is a BUM! I will grant that he is a better backup SS, than FS, but he's not really very good at either spot. Unspectacular at best. Golden is the only safety on the roster that even remotely shows he has the kind of range you would like FS to have.

We need to get some young talent groomed at both S positions, and I mean somebody other than "just another warm body" Ryan Mundy.

I agree we need better backups in the secondary, but I disagree that we've neglected that. In fact, we've selected a LOT of corners in recent years, and a couple of them can start. Safeties will come next year. We did the right thing in addressing our offensive line future this year.

Harrison is the big question, IMO. He's going to be owed just over 10 mil next year. If he comes back after the bye, and tears it up, then he likely stays. If he struggles, gets injured again, etc., I see him taking a big cut, or being cut outright. Of course, with the cap being tight, one can never tell just what might happen. If you had asked me last year who would get cut this offseason...Ward or Hampton, I'd have laughed and said Hampton is gone.

Troy is a whole other thing. I don't think they would cut Troy, or ask him to cut his payday, at least not by much. But he's due 10 mil next year, and 11 the year after. He DOES NOT play at an 11 million dollar level these days. I kind of expect he'll finish this contract and then retire rich.

I have to say I am not ready to stick a fork in Troy, call it what you want but he can still be a play maker as Bayz said above I believe that a safety will be taken this year. Everyone has an opinion but to say that Troy is done is unreal.

Harrison is a bad man. He is just injured. If healthy I have no doubt he will produce like always. Remember, he has less wear and tear on his body due to his late start. Troy is a shell of himself. He spends too much time on Head and Shoulders commercials and less working out. If you remember he ran a sub 4.4 when he was drafted. Speed and ferocity were his calling cards. Whether due to the injury he suffered before the SB vs. GB or age, he is not nearly the quick sudden impact player he was before. He is actually a liability in pass pro. He lost it fast. I venture to guess we draft impact safety number one next year or corner, whichever is BPA where we draft. No way we can win a SB with our secondary.

he's a good player when he's on the field, but the dude is like ma'afala, him staying healthy is a pipe dream. I hope I'm wrong though and his last 2 seasons of blown opportunities is just fluke injuries
