    It appears the Raiders may finally be giving up on safety Derrick Gibson. Picked in the 1st round of the 2001 draft, Gibson has struggled with injuries and been ineffective when in the line-up. He lacks the instincts to play safety and seems to be a step slow on every play. Former Packer Marques Anderson has already supplanted Gibson on the depth chart at strong safety with Gibson being relegated to the role of dime back. Look for Anderson to open the season starting alongside Stuart Schweigert, the team's 2004 3rd round selection. This combination isn't exactly going to scare offensive coordinators around the league.

    Actually the Raiders are happy with his tackling ability.

    Sometimes we are disappointed with less than perfection but the Packers "spin off" a lot of talent every year.

    Some of it may have been the coaching he was getting also. He seemed to get worse with experience, not better. That is not a good sign.
