In all honesty, I don’t think Bell will be missed one bit. He had one interception in 4 years due to his lack of coverage skills.And, I could be wrong, but I honestly think that CGJ is going to be an upgrade at SS. I expect our nickel defense to have Williams and CGJ at safety with Malcom Jenkins covering the slot.
Thats why they signed Malcolm Jenkins and Swearinger. Marcus will have to earn it this time. I can bet he won’t be able to miss tackles and assignments without consequences. Both Swearinger and MJ can play either safety position.
I agree with you. Burrow killed it last year, which is why he was an All-Pro, led the league in passing, and won both the league's MVP and Super Bowl MVP honors. It's hard to argue with that logic.Plus, he should be excited, he might be playing with Burrow. Thats a upgrade over Brees. Flame away.
If we are speaking of the same interview, Jenkins said he was flourishing because the Saints staff was not playing him to his strengths and putting him in bad positions schematically. This was post Denis Allen (as DB coach) and prior to the hire of Aaron Glenn - the period when we had terrible DB coaches. He played well under Denis Allen before Allen went to Denver to be their DC and eventually Oakland as HC not long after we won SB.Jenkins wasnt the player he is today when the saints let him go in FA.
He did an interview where he spoke and re dedicating himself to the game and learning a lot more under the coaches with Philly.
The same may happen for bell. He is a good player, Jenkins was considered good. But a change of scenery and different personal might elevate his game.
Plus, he should be excited, he might be playing with Burrow. Thats a upgrade over Brees. Flame away.
Much more than Bell. It amazes me how overrated Bell is on this board. He is mostly the reason Marcus can’t play to his strengths because he has to worry about bells lack of coverage skillsA good in the box Safety tho. And a nose for the ball.
How many ints does our ballhawking Free Safety have? And I’m not being a wise arse I just don’t think he has that many.
This would put his Comp Pick Value at a Sixth Round Pick.
