Default ~Secondary~ Will it come to life under Tomlin?

Any opinions on what we should expect from the secondary now that Tomlin is the coach? To me McFadden should be a full time starter. Also I think we shouldn't give up the big play as much. For the past several years we have had a problem's with the CB's. Is this the year all that starts to change now? Hopefully it tightens up. We all know Troy is going to be Troy but what can we expect from the SECONDARY as a whole? thanks

I guess it's really the off season.

It's hard to tell. The big knock on Tomlin was that the Vike's secondary wasn't very good last season. So there are a lot of people waiting for our pass coverage to go to hell. I really don't know what's going to happen, I just hope Tomlin can get us off the field on third and long.

Yes i have seen that. Well I do believe we got a better secondary then the Vikings. It is part coach and part personnel. Lets just pray for the best.

Well, no matter how much we sucked last year, I can say that our secondary was at first glance better than the Viks. What will happen now, is up to Tomlin. Honestly, I don't think anyone can really say at this point. Sure, we can make as many predictions as Browns losses but in reality, I don't think anyone can truly predict what will happen. What we have trouble with, is that Tomlin was not head coach, so he might have good ideas, but they might have never been seen because their HC didn't like them.

Yea he got knocked for bad pass defense in Minnesota but they have some pretty crappy players. Our secondary play revolves around Troy and he played hurt for a good part of the year....We go as he goes and in my opinion he is the heart and soul of our team

Well, Its going to be like this.
RCB: McFadden
LCB: Taylor
FS: Smith
SS: Polamalu
Nickle and Dime we will see townsend and Coulcough, and possibly Madison takes coulchogh place

Our secondary's success depends on the pass rush from out LB's......whow will our 4th LB be? Or better yet.....will we have a 4-3 with a new DE pass rusher?

That could be interesting.

Well under Coach Tomlins guidance the Vikings Defense was rated 8th in total d. (Right ahead of us). And first against the run.
The stat that does give me pause though is the fact that they were ranked dead last in the league against the pass. And this is with a secondary that featured Smoot, Winfield and Sharper.
We on the other hand have,........Troy,....and,.....uhhh,....yea,..just pretty much Troy. LOL
Bottom line,.....if we don't address the secondary through the draft,....it could get 'interesting' to say the least.

I have to agree. As much as I love Troy, I think we need to, let's say get the entire secondary involved, for lack of a better term. Plus, if he does stay here, there is no telling what injuries he may have. Like you said, things are bound to get interesting.
