But how many times was he covering someone most people wouldn't put a safety on?
I think it's hard to judge Quin based on stats. How does he allow 95.9 QB ratting, but have 16 passes defensed & 2 Ints? And a sack & a hundred tackles?
Was he the only one on defense?
He passes the eyeball test to me. He's a baller & we need them on this team.
I agree, he's not an "at all cost" player, & he's not going to pick one & take it to the house, or look as pretty
as Jarius Byrd. But he deserves to be well compensated.
Hopefully he understands what his true value is & Rick Smith is at least in the ball park. If he decides to walk after that, then it is what it is. Can't blame Rick for not overpaying, can't blame Quin for getting all he can while he can.
