    Can somebody explain this to me? (mike Mitchell)

    What has Mm done to deserve the number 1 spot at free safety?

    Golden has shown more. They should have taught shamarko free safety.

    Yeah, I've been wondering the same thing. They pretty much handed him the job. The guy who is backing him up on the depth chart (Shamarko) has looked better, IMO.

    Like I said in a thread a couple months ago, don't hand anyone on this team a job. Make them earn it.

    Yes, let's have Shamarko play FS. That's brilliant. A guy that isn't much bigger than Ray Rice. I like Thomas a lot but he is not a FS. He's a SS. If anything, I would use him on subpackages as another CB.

    Thomas is an in the box SS which surprising coverage skills...putting him at FS is being a square peg in a round hole champion of the universe.

    Mitchell will be fine. He is a good player and will finally give us a centerfielder. He can be rusty and still learning the defense/gaining chemistry with them. Preseason is for vets too, especiually new ones

    There's a depth chart and Mitchell was brought in specifically to be the starter based on very good play last season. He tweaked his groin a little bit early on but lets give him a chance. He started 14 games last year with 4 ints and 2 forced fumbles. Golden started none (either of his 2 seasons) and was beat out of starting time by Will Allen.

    People love the pine riders.

    I'm not pimping Golden, just saying he's actually played better than Mitchell.

    Fine then start Wil Allen. Your missing the point. Mitchell hasn't done a thing.
