Default Re: [Radical Idea] Quin Back to CB?

When Wade came in he said he thought Quin could be a mediocre CB and a good safety. I'd argue he was better than mediocre at CB, but they're not going to move him back. He performed entirely too well at S to even think about it. Plus, the 3-deep at safety with Manning, Quin, and Nolan is too good to mess with.

The simple fix in the backfield is to add a better CB2. That's all it's missing.

If you have a 3-deep at safety with Manning, Quin, and Nolan and a 3-deep at CB with Joseph, FA/draft pick, McCain, you're pretty much set.

Default Re: [Radical Idea] Quin Back to CB?

Quin is a very good S. He's average at best as a CB. Because of his lack of speed. They should leave Quin at S and hopefully Harris will become the CB2 that he was drafted to be. Carmicheal is also a very good nickle CB and ST guy. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does next yr.

If Allen walks in FA I could see the Texans picking a CB in the 1st 3 rds.

Personally, id use Mario as our goal line back. We have seen guys like Refrigerator Perry plow in from 1 yard out, but with Mario we have size AND speed! He would be unstoppable!

Or, if we dump Mario, the Texans could let Allen walk but add a quality FA CB like Brandon Carr, Brent Grimes, or a more moderately priced guy like Richard Marshall.

Even if Landry is cut, he will get a big check we cannot afford.

steelb, I thought Harris' lack of speed is what kept him off the field this season. At least that's what I've read.

His 4.53 did not stop Wade from trading back up into 2nd round to get him.

SB Nation is the source I believe you refer to.

He smelled at CB but played well enough at safety to be a useful backup.

If you had another solid option to cover S, probably not Nolan I wouldn't mind seeing him move down as the nickel corner but other than that I really liked his play at S. The only thing I would like to see more of is INTs but I thought he covered and tackled very well.

This. I think Wade sees the potential for Quin to be a difference maker at safety. Theyre not going to move him.

Quin is always out of position i don't like him and i think we need to go in another direction and draft someone to take over FS spot.

Why would we move the best safety we have ever had? He was one of the surest tackles last year. Also improves every year.

Default Re: [Radical Idea] Quin Back to CB?

Please tell me where I'm all wet. I watched Quin make plays all over the field @ the safety position. Replay after repaly was Glover making a play. Kept hearing his name all season, and not for scweing up.

What's the problem with where he is and what he's doing? Seems to be doing a pretty good job to me.

Default Re: [Radical Idea] Quin Back to CB?

I like Quinn at safety better than I like him at corner.

That said, he's not some great irreplaceable safety. He's good, not great.

We don't have to actively look to replace him right now, but if we happen to find someone better that fits within our budget I'm all for it.
