An Atlanta Falcons Discussion: Safeties Without A Safe Net

So here's the million dollar question tonight: Are you comfortable?

The team has done a good job of piling up depth at several key positions, but safety is not one of them. You've got excellent starters with Thomas DeCoud and William Moore, but what's behind them on the depth chart?

The answer is youth, and not a lot else. Shann Schillinger has a lot of talent and I'm a fan of Rafael Bush, but the thought of either of those guys starting if Moore or DeCoud go down for any length of time is somewhat terrifying.

The question for you is, can you live with that backup duo? Do you want the Falcons to draft someone or bring in a free agent? What would make you comfortable?

Sound off!
