I like the way Tyvonn Branch played at SS this year, but I'd like to see him at FS and start Mike Mitchell at SS. Then Huff could be the Nickel back and backup at either safety position. I think on running downs the better combo is Branch and Mitchell...On passing downs the I think the better combo is Branch and Huff because I haven't seen much of Mitchell on passing downs. We need better depth behind Aso and Johnson. Plus I thought Jerome Boyd did well in preseason and was activated for the last game and I think he could surplant Eugene for the 4th safety slot.

The D-backfield seems to be one one of complete squads on the team. I would disagree with the Johnson and Routt. Johnson is one who has been inconsistent and given up numerous big plays (gets caught watching the QB; loses track of the WR too often). Routt is not inconsistent, he plays conservative on 3rd down covering the slot. Unfortunately, he needs to play more agressive as most O-coordinators target the 3rd DB in those situations.
