1. Sign Leonard Davis, OL to play guard, 2. Resign Langston Walker, to play Guard as well, move Bruce Campbell to Right Tackle now, and 3. Bench Tyvon Branch for Mike Mitchell asap...Here is my reasoning, Davis and Walker are big bodies and we need to protect our QB and unlease our potent running attack...These two guys will help us do just that, I have never been a big Walker fan at Tackle, however, at Guard I believe he could thrive and he has played there for us before. Khalif Barnes has been nothing but a disappointment this preseason in my opinion, and we all knew Bruce Campbell was a beast athletically when we drafted him. I think its time to put him at right tackle and let him work, he played tackle in college and has the physical attributes to play in the NFL at that position. Considering Barnes performances we don't have anything to lose. These changes will unlease our beast of a running game at the highest level!!! We should have multiple thousand yard plus rushers on this team.
It is time to see the writing on the wall, Tyvon Branch can't cover, he doesn't hit and has NO respect by opposing offenses playing Safety, period!!! Mike Mitchell was a Linebacker in college, he loves to Hit and will lay the wood, and he also covers better than Branch...I can care less about certain stats on Tyvon Branch, he showed no aptitude to cover this preseason just like last season and he just doesn't lay the wood.. Mitchell on the other hand does and even if he gets beat a time or two at least he has one of the two attributes needed to play safety effectively, he will knock you out of your cleats running across the middle and covers far better than Branch...lol
A couple of other notes.. DHB will bench himself this year and probably early, we now have far too much talent for our worst WR to start now. I would love to see Wiz at Center with players like Davis and Walker on each side and Veldeer and Campbell on the outside, now that is Beef up front...
