Due to our coaching staff having overall freedom of allowing coverage corners in Revis, Cromartie and Wilson to be lined up in man to man, one on one coverage... Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry have the ability (potential) to change the entire outlook of our defense this up coming season. They may not be the greatest coverage Safety's around, but with Revis and Cromartie locking up on the outside? These two Safety's in Bell and Landry are 'Taylor-Made' for a Rex Ryan led defense. If Landry is able to return to previous form (health wise), we're on the verge of featuring strong, aggressive, tough, physical, hard hitting types of Safety's; who are both very strong open field tacklers. Something we haven't had in quite some time. Due to having the strongest trio of coverage corners around, our Safety's in Bell and Landry will be able to roam the middle of the field while looking to punish TE's crossing the middle of the field and/or HB's coming out of the backfield. Health is key, because if Landry can stay healthy? Bell and Landry will add another dimension to our defense, a dimension that we've lacked for quite some time; which are big, strong, aggressive, physical, hard hitting, strong tackling Safety's being asked to roam the middle of the field.
Hearing reports of Landry being taken off the PUP list, practicing with pads on, while also making plays (at the same time) has put a smile on my face. We're talking about a Safety who's only 27 years of age as a former 6th overall draft selection (2007). This man put up 95 tackles as a rookie. 90 tackles as a 3rd year player, and before going down in 2010, Landry was on the verge of putting up monster numbers. Put up 85 tackles during only 9 games before getting hurt. An average of 9.4 tackles per game. He was on pace for a 150 tackle type of season. If Landry can return to form and bounce back from injury? We just landed one of the toughest Safety's around.
