I don't feel safe, do you? What should the Packers do with safety position?

As many of you realized on Sunday watching Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis burn our safeties all day, both Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings are not starter quality players in the NFL. While Morgan Burnett's impending return should help, I for one do not feel comfortable with either Jennings or McMillian playing the opposite side.

There are a couple moves the Packers could make to patch the holes in the secondary. For starters, they could sign a free agent safety ala Kerry Rhodes to play opposite Burnett. With the season is in full swing and no other teams seemingly knocking on Rhodes' front door, he could be an inexpensive addition, and bring a venerable veteran presence to the secondary that has been lacking since the exodus of Charles Woodson. Another viable option would be to have Micah Hyde make the move to safety. Hyde did have a stellar training camp and decent preseason as well. He has proved he can be a play maker and I have more faith in his skill set than I do in Jennings and McMillian combined. Not to mention he has dabbled with the safety position in the past. The third option would be to do nothing, pray Morgan Burnett comes back soon, and hope for the best out of Jennings and McMillian.

Ugh...Why do I get the feeling the Pack will go with option 3?
