    If we've learned anything in the last year, it's that the Chargers' defense needs guys who can COVER.

    That wouldn't include Roy Williams... especially not at the price he'll command.

    NEXT!!! :lol:

    But the other grumblings about safeties is that we haven't had an enforcer or a headhunter who can smack someone around since rodney harrison. you want that? Here's your guy

    I think we need an intimidator that can knock the snot out of the ball carrier.

    If he can cover, so much the better.

    He can't cover......

    But one thing he is great at ala McCree and Hart is take really bad angles and be left for dead.

    No thank you, Roy Williams the supposed safety (not to be confused with the WR) is horrible.

    Is it that he can't cover deep (but i guess can cover short range) or that he can't cover period

    Clarification. "He" I am refering to would be the slobber knocking, snot rocketing hitter.

    I am not big on Roy Williams, or his horse Trigger.

    Trust me, trust me. If we get that fierce pass rush attack we had in 2006, all of a sudden ANY secondary looks good. I mean, come on, Pitt Secondary is very good but what makes them great are those mad dogs up front with Harrison, Woodley and the others. Once you get that, your secondary can tee off on people. In 2006 when we had Foley, Godfrey, Donnie, Phillips and Merriman, we were killing mofos. Got to have the big crazies up front.

    Oh, as for Roy, too old and too expensive. I mean if Dallas is not retaining him, that tells you something.

    But unless he can cover, he'll be getting exposed... especially if the pass rush doesn't measure up.

    I think he'll ask for too much money and I didn't like what I saw out of him in 2008. Plus he still isn't comepletely rehabbed off of horse collaring dudes and is therefore a liability. NEXT!

    He can't cover so I don't want him at safety and he's too small to be a LB. So, no thanks.
