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.

Heyward, Brown and Redman look great. Sadly, it looks like O-line and corner are right where they were last year and the year before that. Depressing. I'm foreseeing the All-Nickel-All-the-Time defense this year. Hopefully they don't pull Timmons in that package like they did last year.

2 reasons why this didn't happen.

1. Kolb wasn't a free agent, he was traded. He had no say where he went.

2. Kolb wanted to be a starter. I'm sure if he wanted to be a back up, he would have stayed in Philly...

Kolb is touted as a franchise quarterback. There i 0% chance he's going to take a huge cut and come sit behind someone when he could be "The man" somewhere else. Not to mention a team over the cap is not going to neglect their most needed positions to sign a backup at a ridiculous price.
