Like!

He's the one who chased down Jerome Mathis on a return a few years back.

Remember how fast Mathis was?
And Routt chased him down from across the field.

Lets not all get too excited right up front on this. Remember, Wade is going to need some time to turn him into a Pro Bowl CB.

We probably won't see that until the Minnesota game. Wade isn't a miracle worker you know.

I think the hopes would be none of the above. He'll be an emergency DB and maybe a STer. He'd basically be replacing Posey as our last resort

playing for the Raiders might have resulted in some of those "tic-tac" penalties.

We don't even know if he's going to play this week.

I still think either Alan or JJo will go.

If both go, perhaps Alan will be in the slot on Welker.

If not, I think it will be Harris.

If neither go, we might see him some.

Who knows, Quin might play some CB this week.

I think Routt fits with us because they played a lot man coverage in Oakland.

Vance Joseph turned Kareem Jackson into a Probowl caliber corner. I think
Routt will be fine in the environment he now finds himself in.

We probably won't see that until the Minnesota game. Wade isn't a miracle worker you know.
When we brought in Quintin Demps late last year he made an immediate impact. Although he had been here in preseason.

If he is in shape and he is familiar with the terminology he could play. If they put him on someone to stay on and doesn't have to worry about switching receivers mid-route he might be out there.

Exactly. I just don't get all the McCain love. Harris will be taking McCains spot, and who says in th near future that this secondary did not just get upgraded overall?

There's a video out there somewhere in the same area of the video posted earlier in this thread.

His burn rate in 2010 ranked third.
That's even better than Asomugha and it was better than JJo by quite a bit that year.
