Default Re: Faggins

hes a solid nickle/dime CB that is loyal to the franchise and cheap.. with alot of character and a good work ethic.

He has also made alot of good plays.. people just dont care when you play correctly.. they just like the ***** when you make a mistake.

Default Re: Faggins

Barring any significant change... Reeves, Bennett and Molden are guaranteed locks for the team. Then when Dunta comes back he is almost guaranteed to be active unless he's really not doing well. So there are 4 CB's for the last 10 games with 1 coming off significant injury and not having played in a game for 12 months and another that is a raw rookie. I simply cannot see us only carrying 4 CB's throughout the season- I'm banking on 5 (Fletcher & Faggins). Then when Dunta comes back they either cut a player at another position and carry 6 cb's, cut either faggins or fletcher, or put Dunta on IR if he's not doing well.

Faggins is far from being a Pro Bowler, but he's solid. He makes a ton more good plays than bad, we just notice the one or two bad plays per game even if he blanketed his receiver for the rest of the game.

Default Re: Faggins

Petey is 38, lost a step and is getting 1.1 million when his skills demand $500,000. He might be depth right now but my question was:

can we go through another season of good Faggins play when, oops, he gets burned for a game winner 1 or 2 times this season.

I say we cannot handle the risk of losing a game near the end and I think if he is in other teams will pick on him.

This is a business and buisness is always better when your winning.

I understand he is a veteran and if he is there to warm the bench he seems a little too expensive.

Petey is 29, not 38. His number is 38 so maybe you are getting confused
Petey has not lost a step in my opinion
He is a nickle or dime corner. He isn't covering the #1 guy unless people are injured

I think he is definately worth 1.1 million, especially when we aren't having any cap issues and there is no one better out on the market. Why cut him now? Save a few hundred thousand bucks that we don't spend on anyone else better doesn't make sense. He has looked good in preseason and camp.

I am old school and if you do not practice you do not play (chris)

If you cannot read a coverage and your in the defensive backfeild then you do not play. Come on Peety, get your head out in the sunlight and play football or get off the feild.
Unfortunately we are still VERY thin in this area, therefore, he's gonna see playing time. I just hope it's not a Lee Evans situation again, the whole league has that game tape on how to burn Petey.

OMT, this is spot on imo! Barring any unexpected injuries this is the scenario I think will probably play out and makes the most sense. It would be too risky to go into the regular season with a rookie and 2 other only slightly experienced players (Reeves & Bennett) and Dunta on the sidelines. I think Faggins is safe, at least until Dunta is back. JMHO!
