D-Rob. Sean Taylor is good to but when you think hind sight like the thread says, Just drafting a Safety would've left a gaping hole for CB in the future with Coleman and Glenn getting up there in age. With D-Rob living up to his expectations, we now have a CB for the future, a veteran in Marcus Coleman playing safety who started to come along towards the end of the season and should have a better season this coming year, and maybe a CB whose age shows occasionally but still has the ability to play for a couple more years.

D-Rob helped our D in more ways than one.

Now on the other hand, if the Skins want to move Taylor, I think the Texans would make every effort to get him. Charlie wanted him.

Dunta has been just what the doctor ordered. Can't argue with the success.

haha yeah that is also very true. we only seem to choose guys with a lot of character, and seem to have no real selfish "look at me" players ! thats one thing i love about our team !

number one - i'mglad to have dunta and thanks to capers for another good draft decision. to answer the original question i would take sean taylor. he was hurt this year so we still don't know his capabilities. robinson has proven he will be a good to great cb but i think chances are taylor will be a better safety then dunta is cb. hope i'm wrong. also we haven't seen the benefits yet but i think sloan thomas might have been best steal of the draft if he has half the skills i believe him to.

I say draft another topshelf corner and replace foreman with DRob
then, never give him an assignment for any particular play other than:
Dunta, find the ball carrier, then break him

halfway through next season the media would be saying: "rayray who?"

D-rob is the man, cause he not only brings skill to his position at such a young age, but he brings excitement and make the big play when you need it to the whole secondary. Also I kinda think of him the way I did Bill Bates of the Cowboys. He was the guy who wasn't fast and wasn't the strongest, but played with heart and determination, and IMO that is a hell of a player. I myself was always the underdog, but D-rob has the one thing ST doesnt. They never saw him comming.

God!
Family!
Country!
Texans!
