DuffMan Posted December 24, 2007 Report Share Posted December 24, 2007 Granted it was Derrick Anderson, but Ndukwe and Marvin White were making some pretty impressive plays, as were Hall and JJoe. At this point I wouldn't be too hesitant to let Madieu walk and go after another vet safety. It is only one game, but Ndukwe has progressed over the season (he can tackle now! which is more than could be said for Madieu) and White showed nice athleticism on some deflections. JJoe looked like his quicker rookie form and Hall did alright when he wasnt giving Braylon Edwards 10 yards cushion. It's just nice to see a position where young talent seems to be paying off. Also, I looked up Dexter Jackson's salary info on some website, it looks like he is signed through 2010, and if we cut him now we get hit with $700,000 in dead money, and we save $750,000...so basically I wouldn't be surprised of Dexter is still in bengal stripes next year, givin his marginal salary and veteran status, despite how much I would hate to seem him as one of our starters next year. On the other hand...Our pass rush was...well...nonexistant. Geathers got some good pressure and forced a holding call or two, but Justin Smith did nothing outside of tip two passes. No doubt the DLine is a position we need to address both via FA and the draft. Also, I don't think I heard Thorton's name more than 3 times today. Both of them combined is about 13 million dollars of salary this year...sad. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
