I'm suggesting that we exploit unused  talent(Ruud). We pay the guy anyways type attitude..

Changing a starter that performs well, let alone Ronde, is not part of my efficient  theme.

I'm sorry but it is a dumb suggestion. He is a MLB and you don't convert MLBs to safety in the NFL.

Maybe, MAYBE an OLB. Still, that is a rarity.

Ruud could do pretty well playing as a safety in this scheme.  Lynch did it for years and I feel Ruud is a superior athlete compared to Lynch.  With that said I want the young players to stick and learn one position.  That is why I am agaisnt Ruud or Zemaitis playing other positions on defense as they need to prove the can be good at their original positions.

A player like Barber as he ages would be ideal to move to safety and I do not know why they have not considered moving Bolden to play safety.  Bolden is a good box player and has experience playing safety. I suppose becuase he has a tendency to gamble makes him a not so hot option at safety.

The suggestion may be unrealistic, I'm no pro. However, I'm not proposing that we dismantle perfection.

I can think of a lot of teams that make these type of adjustments from WITHIN personel: The Patriots...

Choosing Cox or Pearson would be fine too! Just make the demned adjustment.

When everyone thinks the same, nobody is really thinking.

That and he can't tackle worth a crap.
