    Trufant isn't good?? He's better than any healthy DB currently on our roster. I'd take him in a heartbeat.:cool:

    If Trufant isn't good I would like to know what your definition of good is? He is my no.1 target in F.A. if I was RS. We will be lucky to get him. Why did you start a thread about pick no.11? Do you advocate trding up to pick no.11?

    Umm, I didn't start the thread.

    FTR - It's not in the Texans section, but rather the draft section. I believe the original poster intended it to show that the #11 pick has produced some high quality players.

    SORRY I forgot to check who started the thread. Would you sign Trufant? I must be losing my mind.

    I'd take almost healthy DB over what is left of our backfield.

    Sorry - I'm just not impressed with Trufant. Especially compared to the other guys on the list.

    Compared to what we have sure why not - but I wouldn't throw oodles of cash his wa. I think Bennett is going to be a might fine CB, especially if/when a healthy DRob makes it back.

    Who on the list do you like? Money may be better spent on Gay, G. Wilson & Spicer

    Comparatively speaking, Trufant is better than Cutler at the present time. Dan Morgan has yet to play a full season in his career. He's played 4 games in the past 2 seasons. 59 in 7 seasons.

    Meh, to each their own I reckon. :shades:

    in papal's defence, i used to know a diehard seahawks fans and before this season, they were decidedly unimpressed with trufant describing him as very average... havent heard from him lately but it looks like trufant had a better yr statistically this yr

    I watch a lot of games (thanks to NFL package) - he just doesn't wow me. Just my opinion.

    Might be in some folks Top 10 - I don't deny that. But I wouldn't throw tons of cash his way.
