Default McFadden and Gay in danger of losing their jobs?

Keenan Lewis and Curtis Brown looked really good last night. I know CB won't win the #2 corner spot this year (no chance in lebeau's system), but it's not out of the question for a rookie to take over the nickel spot.

thoughts? I think if continue to do well the rest of this preseason we can see a new lineup in the secondary

Hard to say at this point. I would imagine next week against the Falcons will tell the final story on most position battles (although there aren't really that many), since the starters will face starters for as much as 3 quarters.

Doubt it, well at least this year. As for Curtis Brown, he did pretty well for his first game and limited training camp. I was constintly looking for him to take the field. The first time I saw him my first thought was damn he has a crazy nice back pedal, and can stay close to his guy!! Heres to hoping hes going to be something special!!!

Brown needs to work on getting his head turned around faster.

I think that Keenan Lewis may be able to fight for the nickel position before the start of the season. I think that Curtis Brown may be able to fight for the nickel position early in the season. We must wait and see what Crezdon Butler can do. We also must wait on Bryant McFadden getting back healthy and see how he looks. It's unlikely that he slips from the starting rotation barring injuries at any point this season though unless Keenan Lewis (or Crezdon Butler) starts playing out of his mind. I think next year would be Brown's earliest chance of starting barring injuries.

Lots of DBs look like the second coming of Deion Sanders when Mike Vick decides to quit reading defenses

Let's see how they do next week against Matt Ryan, Julio Jones & Roddy White

well true, but it's a start, and certainly looking better than last week. I'm not saying crown the new guys yet but at least the secondary is showing promise. We definitely are gonna need players to step up at the cb position, whether it be lewis, butler, brown, or warren (who also looked really good yesterday)
