Last year Ross struggled mightily especially in man coverage and in a system where the safeties are meant to be interchangeable that is not a good start. With the retention of Young as the backup free safety, the drafting of Dowling who can play both, and the pressure from Shelton Johnson who played limited snaps at the end of last year as an undrafted free agent from Wisconsin, there are plenty of people who can step in for Ross if he fails again.

    I can dig it. I really enjoy articles written by a fan. the comments are accurate an come across with the team best interest at heart. go raiders

    Lets see if DJ CAN PLAY 16 games in 3 yrs, he’s another DMC.

  • Mark Shafer

    First of all all Menelik needs to do is get off on the snap count to beat out Barnes. His foot work is better, he is quicker, and probable stronger.
    I really have not seen any thing from Burris to see him beating out, one of my favorites, Sio Moore.
    I think part of D J’s problem was him relieing on his closing speed. He needs to give a lot less room to NFL receivers.

    Nice article, couple of things Robinson did play a few games last year and Criner was a 5th rounder.

  • Raider Grant

    Dennis Allen, Watson, and Hayden are on the HOT seat! Wish all of them the BEST of luck, but We could have done better no matter how you look at it. Go Raiders
