    MIlliner's development and play for the rest of this season is truly going to determine how good this defense is.

    RIght now we are down right dominant against the run. Because of Harris' play getting better and Demario turning into a hell of a player, our linebackers can cover. Cro is fine, just need a 2nd corner who's a legitimate good player. Milliner has to be that guy.

    It would be nice for Dee to finally get on the field. But an actual safety would be nice too

    You can't pay every position with this salary cap... Safety in my mind is a great position to save money on. Much like the RB, guard, and center positions.

    Great news, let's hope he's been studying the defensive playbook and doesn't blow any coverages.

    I'm not sure this board would be happy with All Pro's at every position backed up with pro bowlers..

    I agree with everything you said except for Cro.

    There' s a yawning gulf between 'probowl' and the caliber of the safety play. 'Competent' would be a nice start

    Hopefully he's actually healthy. Being gimpy and getting burned is not going to help his confidence. At least the Pats don't have anyone scary on the outside to cover

    Gonna half to work through his lumps, but he'll be fine, just give him a little time, let him develop this
    year so next year he's ready day one, he'll improve game by game.
