    Got everything I wanted in the first 4 rounds. The rest of the picks ? Ehh.

    A Punter/LB er ? Interesting.

    A future long snapper ? One is going to be needed.

    UDFA's ... we did good.

    If you listened to Briggs and Williams last year, they all had confidence in Tucker also, they all said the inj's ruined this teams ability to play.

    I hope you're right. Tucker has a lot to prove and there's a lot of justifiable skepticism about him, injuries included.

    the only people that have any skepticism justified or otherwise is in the fanbase; the one group that doesn't get a vote. The coaches/players and management aren't showing any.

    and ya I agree his D schemes have to show they work this year, don't get me wrong but I don't think the fan bases opinion counts :)

    I beg to differ. There was no vote of confidence in Tucker immediately after the season ended at the Jan 2 press conference. Trest-ery waited another full week to announce a decision to keep him (by default it appears). And later hired PP who's a DL coach who's also been an a college HC and NFL DC.

    SHOT ACROSS THE BOW

    If the D flops again, Tucker needs to be the first one fired.

    Actually he stayed, that's the vote of confidence, Tillman, Briggs, WIlliams all AFTER THE SEASON came to Tuckers defense, those are votes of confidence. Just b/c you chose to ignore them doesn't make it not true.

    Just b/c you CHOSE not to listen to people that told you that it's not the DC's job to improve the players, but the positional coaches doesn't make YOU correct. Give it up, Tucker was kept b/c the team and management believe in him.

    yeah but I think Tillman is saying they didn't get it done last year.

    yes injuries hurt the defense but the defensive plays really sucked too.

    how much motivation did they provide? Just because you have injuries doesn't mean you wont be good.

    I just hate Mel tucker as it stands right now. I don't think my opinion will be any more positive by the end of this season.
