I'd give Carrol a sniff. He played cover corner at Arkansas and the burn marks should of healed over by now. Might have a different reslut with all the pressure off at being a high end pick with the weight of the world off his shoulders. Don't know if he can cover,or if he's even in shape. But he can run. That's basically the only flaw Faggins has. If you could mix up the two you'd have a prety fair CB2. Anyone want to venture a guess at who goes to RC and who's at left CB in two weeks ? That's going to be something interesting to watch in the next couple of weeks. On the one hand you've got a veteran who's not athletic enough to be matched up on the other teams best WR. On the other hand you've got a better athlete , a rookie, asked to relearn his foot work in two weeks. Gonna be fun.

Pretty slim pickings. Sigh.

By the way, the trading deadline has passed, so we can't work a trade deal.

I'm guessing they're going to move Von Hutchins back to corner, and sign a free agent. Jamar Fletcher's appendix sure picked a bad time to demand removal.

I think we'll bring back Mccleon due to familiarity. I dont think that Rick Smith will be looking for a long term answer with this signing, just a bandaid to get us through the rest of this season. Mccleon already knows the scheme so if we sign him now he has the bye week to get back into football shape.

sorry to be Debbie Downer so early on Monday morning, but that list suddenly brings a 6-10 record into focus a good deal more.

Default Re: Here's a list of FA CB's

Samuels should be on that list, I believe that NE agreed not to franchise him next season. We could target a CB in the draft or obtain one through a trade. I am starting to wonder about playing more of a cover 2 style of D. Cover 2 corners are a little easier to find than good man to man CBs. If we move Weaver inside to our DT rotation and shift MW to LE then add a speed rusher in the Derrick Burgess mold I think we could have the makings of a sold cover 2 unit. Or course we still need to upgrade FS - although I liked what I saw of Demps in the Oak game. he was really laying the wood.

Rick Smith will do the best he can to address this need for now then after the season target a high profile corner in free agency & probably use his 3rd round pick on one in the draft. this is a terrible time to find a free agent cb, nobody of note available. did a search on other teams practice squads & undrafted free agent corners to me very limited (found Kenny Scott, Georgia Tech & Anthony Arline, Baylor still unsigned) I'm sure Rick has his data base of potential cbs from his draft board last year who may be still available that he will contact to interview/workout.

I am not going to say that just yet, 8-8 is still on the horizon. I do however think that your about to see this offense get really boring. Two TE's, I formation, maximum amount of time spent between each play. Total clock management.

IMO Fletcher got off way too easy. It was just a rupturing appendix. I mean Mathis was expected to "stretch it out" and Fletcher gets surgery. SHeesh! You are a wimp FLetchy.

I agree with the high profile CB in the offseason, but maybe not A Samuel quality. They just need someone that can cover for 1-2 years. As aweful as losing Dunta is, I don't think it's the end of our 2008 by any means. We can draft a big name CB, Bennet can step up. Sign a really good FS (we have plenty of cap room), and then draft an OLB, and we have a Bad@ss defense again. Dunta can heal on his own time, and then we have depth too!

If Studdard and White can step up, and maybe Spencer comes back. We're set. Top it off with a Center in the 3rd round, and our O-line is pretty decent. Big name RB.

Sign:
Big time RB
Med-High Quality CB (Can cover 1-2 years until DROb is 100%)
Best FS Available (If Demps or Hutchins don't step up soon)

Draft
1st:OLB
3rd:C
4th:FS/SS
5th:BPA
6th: BPA

Any thoughts to whom you would get in free agency? IMO there is no big time RB or free safety. After Samuels CB the quality drops very significantly. He has said he would have signed earlier this season for $10 million/year but wanted four years. I linked that in another thread. We have $30m this off season so why not get a great player to go with Dunte( if it was not a career ending injury) and Bennett? I have a sad feeling we will not spend all or even much of that $30 m.

There is a whole lot of 'if' in your hope that Spencer will be back and if he is? He looked pretty good based on two games. And that was before he was injured. Asking a guy to come back after all that time is asking a lot. If we pick an OLB, even Connor, where we will probably select in first, I'll be stunned and angry. If you can trade down and get a Ryan Clady (assuming he's out) in first and get a 2nd AND you pick up Samuel and Bennett continues to look good, I might then be ok with Connor in 2nd. I think most fans prefer filling the hole at FS rather than getting a LB.

I keep seeing this thread getting activity and I keep checking it thinking that maybe Rick Smith has pulled another rabbit out of his a.... er, I mean hat.

But no.

And still no presser on D-Rob so we can hear if it was just the hammy and an ACL or if it was the hammy and the trifecta.
