Yeah--not sure why folks are talking so much about the CB position. The great majority of Wilson's starting experience is at free safety. He pretty much only played CB in NE because of injuries there which as some will remember were so bad they had WR Brown playing CB as well.

Not that this means one way or the other, but:

Wilson will be a corner for the Texans. Currently they have Jacques Reeves and Fred Bennett as their starters with DeMarcus Faggins as the nickel and rookie Antwaun Molden available to chip in. Faggins had a good camp after a miserable 2007 season.

Just because a guy couldn't beat out another guy doesn't mean he can't play. In NE, they play a lot of 4 deep or quarters. In philly, samuel will play 3 deep behind the fire zzone. Oak and Balt play man to man, bump and run with a single high safety. Jason David has taught teams that u can't take a cover 2 corner and expectt him to play bump and run. Just like Kerse was used to gettng up the field and appliying pressure, but he goess to philly and have to drop into zones. Wilson is a dallas clark- alge crumpler matchup safety. Anyone that has the texans know that the the Y- flex tight has given them problems.

I see Wilson as a corner for us too....

I think that makes the secondary stronger as a whole..

Has P Buc really turned the corner to where he can start opposite of Rhonde Barber in a deep secondary?
He actually has. It goes to show you how good a coach Monte Kiffin is. He's not the same player we had here, though he still shows some Jason David-type weaknesses at times.

Me too. I thought they should have re-signed him instead of going after Reeves, mostly for his versatility. I hope Jaques proves me wrong.

Like the success or failure of a majority of NFL players it all comes down to the matchup between talent, skillset, opportunity and scheme.

Only time will tell whether he will be a good fit in our system.

I think that the two recent moves for Wilson and McClover shows that the FO sees the teams weakness the same place that most of us do (secondary and pass rush). I like the proactive approach to getting things done.

If this was 2006 I'd be giddy about getting Wilson.

I like db's that have had success against the Mannings & Roethlisbergers of the world in the playoffs. How many of our current db's can say that?

Great pick up Smithiak

I wanted to pick him up in FA.

I cant believe we got him for the vet. min.

I don't see why Hoke gets all of the love on this board.

The secondary has been one of the worst in the league since the teams inception.

Apparently Smithiak agrees with me because they brought in R. Rhodes to try to help the secondary improve.

Even Hoke can't make chicken salad out of chicken crap.

People complain about lack of investment on the OL, same could be said of the secondary. Apart from Dunta have we spent a first day pick back there?

I always believe you got to invest in real TALENT back there because they are out on an island and if they mess up its 7 points.
