mods: can you fix the title please? mispelled O'Neal
I thought Bush airport was a Continental hub.....
Bring him in and let him compete, it can't hurt. I don't know his statistics, but I do know the name. Hopefully it's familiar to me because he was a good player, not for some other reason.
says 32 tackles and 3 int. in 2008. 9 year veteran player. I say let's see what he can do. I'd rather do this than nothing.
He was signed by NE last Sept and ended up getting a few picks for them last year I think.
He used to be an decent corner, it cant hurt to bring him in and see what he can do.
Looks like CB Jason Webster is being brought in as well
He had one very good year (10 picks) with the Bengals a few years ago. Other than that.....eh, he'll take some reps
Here's Jason Webster's stats: 2008: 5 tackles 1 FF 0 int.
This might because Reevs has a broken leg and is going to be out for six to eight weeks.
From what I have seen/remember, he is a decent journeyman type with experience. He isn't going to set the world on fire, but in a pinch he'll do.
Blessing in disguise?!?
It would be cool to have a random guy come in and fit into the system and all of our DB troubles be over!
Like I always say "random is good"
He was a bad ass PR for the Broncos in Madden.
From what I remember of his career with the Broncos he was a hell of an athlete with limited experience coming out of college. Not 100% sure but I think he also spent some time trying out as a WR in Denver before they settled on him at CB. In Denver/Cincy he was a "big play CB" meaning he was either gonna get the INT or the WR was gonna get the TD.
Maybe 9 years in the league has helped him understand the game a little more and now he takes less chances? Hopefully not at the detriment of his athleticism though...
At worst he's a good bandaid until Reeves/Dunta come back and one gets up to speed.
At best he's a solid starting CB that is capable of forcing some much needed turnovers for us.
I think O'neal is a safe pick. He is a good veteran CB that does make plays. He's up there in age but he can take care of business for the time we need him to and teach the young guys. That is a good thing too because Reeves was our veteran CB and that really isn't much in terms of the young CBs learning a whole lot.
Dunta needs to cut the bullsh*t and get in here!
Dunta sucks as a CB.
We're much better off going with Deltha O'Neal & Bennett.
Reeves would then be fighting with Bennett for a starting spot.
That's how bad the CB situation is & has been here in Houston.
Do we sign one of them or both?
Bennett and Quinn will be the starters game 1 and McCain the nickle. At least until Reeves returns. Dunta who? I am really hoping another team offers a 2nd round for DR.
