It will be good when we get Ced and EJ back. I hope they are ready for the opener down there in New Oileans.

EJ comes back to his original form and lookout. Our MLB relief left alot to be desired.

You could put a tackling dummy out there in his place and get the same (non)production. He's an overpaid stiff just like his boss.

You must be talking about our two starting safeties for much of last season? I don't remember Ced being benched for poor production like Williams and Johnson.

I never thought he'd be ready. Take your time so we don't lose him for a longer period of time. I think Lito Shepard has a lot to prove and he'll play well.

Seriously? That comment sucks. Try again.

One thing Griffin is praised for most is his tackling. If you want to knock him intelligently, pick on his pass coverage skills before his tackling.

Sheppard has more int. returns of over 100 yds. for Tds. than Griffin had "picks" last year, just sayin'.

Check that, above post is incorrect, I was thinking of Johnson who had only 1 pick for the Vikes. I still would love to see Sheppard return to his pro-bowl form and become the starter, JMO.

What about Cook? Do you let him start right away? Ideally, I think Cook AND Shep should be our starting CBs come week 1. Winfield can take one S position and let those two other bums fight it out for the other. What do you think? How about Atogwe? I'd love to see us sign him if he's healthy enough!

Based on our cb's performances the last couple years yeah, I like your scenario if COOK proves NFL ready from the gate. Winny should be a lock still if healthy
