    Wuold you rather trust Antoine Winfield? He's like 3 inches shorter than Griffin.
    Some people would rather bring back Smoot.

    This is gonna take a total team effort to win this.

    O has to sustain drives and score TD's or we will have a repeat of the Indy game.

    TJ needs to use his legs just as much as he uses his arm.

    OL needs to protect the QB.

    WR/TE's need to get open and hold onto the ball.

    RB's need to hold onto the ball as well as pick up the blitz.

    DL has to get pressure on Warner from the front 4 without having to blitz LB'rs all the time.

    CB's need to stay with thier WR's just a tick longer so the DE's can get to the QB.

    S's need to not bite on the play action allowing the WR's to get deep.

    ST's need to win the field position battle for us and not allow any huge gains.
    Well they almost got them all right...... ;D


    Wonder if someone wants to recant this one..........
    If Griffin is on Fitz, we're screwed, since he sucks at jump balls,
    i'll admit, he had a great game.
    Fortunately, he wasn't tested on the jump balls, although he did tip the one ball that was underthrown to fitz.
    I still wouldn't trust him covering fitz on a fade in the red zone.

    yes
    Really???

    3 inches (and it's probably more than that) can be a huge difference.
    Griffin' vertical jump is 35 1/2 (http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...2006&genpos=FS) which ain't bad at all. In fact, it's pretty good!
    While Antoine Winfield's vertical jump is 37 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_Winfield), he still is at least 3 inches shorter than Griffin. I'd rather have Griffin covering jump balls than Winfield.

    Just my opinion though
