We had two major problems at the Safety position last season - and they were not Allen, Coleman or Jarrett.
Our major problem was our inept LB corps. The midfield was in a constant state of disarray and chaos ready to be exploited by every offensive coordinator and QB regardless of their talent. Our safeties were not only trying to adapt to their new role within the wide-9 scheme, but also had to help cover the roles our LBs needed to lock down. By overhauling our LB corps with smart players with top tier talent (Demeco/Luke anyone?), our entire secondary will take a huge leap forward. Plus Jarrett was coming into a situation without any training camp - so to evaluate him even by rookie standards is unfair. Its not like we had a seasoned vet familiar with the wide-9 to show him the ropes;; everyone was scrambling.
And need I remind you about how Jarred Page single handedly gave away game after game? Page is my best argument that a FA vet isn't necessarily going to be a good fit in a scheme like the wide-9. He not only couldn't adjust. His instincts were honed to another system and was constantly making the wrong reads and whiffing on tackles as he was out of position.
I have no problem moving forward with Allen, Coleman and Jarrett - provided we course correct our LBs. The modern game is all about QBs exploiting the midfield. Spags just signed two top shelf LBs in Lofton and Hawthorne while he already had Vilma - don't tell me LB isn't going to be a key position moving forward. Spags sees where the game is going and is making adjustments to be ahead of the curve. Ryans is no solution. We need more LB pieces if we have any chance to compete.
