Also, Pleasant could be stashed on the PS again. Remember, Keo stuck last year when a lot thought he would be cut, so I'm thinking VJ or Marciano must like him for some reason.
Pleasant was brought up to the active roster late in the season.
So he's on the team... until and if he's waived.

The penalties is the area for concern w/ Harris IMO. He did seem to get untimely penalties that were costly. I believe that is something that can be fixed. Harris played aggressive & made plays on the ball & that is what got him on occasion. With additional playing time I think the penalties improve because he can learn what he can & cannot get away w/ the refs. That type of knowledge is primarily gained by being on the field. Most know that cb's have to get physical, but they have to know the limits or be penalized...that's Harris' problem IMO. I liked how he played physical & was normally in position to make plays on the ball. He showed some decent awareness by normally being in the area to make a play & was effective at times against the likes of Welker & Wayne. Those are some qualities that eluded both McCain & Kareem early in their careers.

As I said before, writing Harris off as a bust after only 2 seasons w/ very limited playing time is shortsighted & foolish IMO. With the "2 seasons & done" thought process, McCain shouldn't even be talked today because according to some of y'all he, & KJ for that matter, should've been deemed busts & gone by now. Once again, a double standard that makes absolutely zero sense IMO.
LOL! can't wait till I have time to respond to this.

LOL you guys are harsh! Granted I think I would have entertained similar thoughts last season. It's one thing to get burnt due to lack of skill. It's another to get burnt because of repeated mental lapses because you keep biting on fakes over...and over...and over

The entire secondary struggled last year when cushing went out. In this day and age, you need 3 or 4 quality cbs. Mccain was missed big time last year when hurt because he went down when cushing went down. The pass rush was suspect also and it hurt everyone even jjo. Now they have a ball hawk at safety and now they will have 4 cbs with experience.

Huh and what? Cushing went down against the Jets in week 5...McCain didn't go out til week 13 against the Titans. You must mean that he was out while Cush was out. McCain was missed while he was on the field because he was playing bad. So yeah he was missed...the 2011 version of him.

You're spot on about the pass rush. It needs to be addressed big time. Watt was superb and Smith was very solid but we got little to nothing from everyone else. With teams scheming to stop Watt other guys should have been freed up to make plays and it didn't happen.

We'll continue to struggle against the top QBs until we ramp up our pass rush. The Giants have owned the Pats I recent years with a rather pedestrian secondary and a fearsome pass rush. The blueprint is out there we just need to follow it.

This is exactly what I have been saying. There will be good WR's available with our second and third round picks. In the first we have to get D front seven guys that can get to the QB.

Especially now that i think QBs wont look deep on us as much with reed back there. Meaning QBs will hold the ball for less time then they were.

BUT with that said i think we need to help the offense out, especially the WR corp.

I agree with you. But I'd also be okay with them taking a receiver in the first and then trading up for a pass rushing big nasty in the 2nd.

I'd love to see a good WR in the first and Jamie Collins in the second. Collins is going to be good

It really depends on who is there & who may be within our reach later. If there's only one outside pass rusher available & 5 WR of equal talent, I'm taking that pass rusher, provided he fits what we are trying to do.

I like Newton as well, but I'm not opposed to picking up another tackle. While I don't see it as a need, the right guy will put this team on another level (I think).
