    So far I have been very unimpressed with Ball's performance. With McCain and Harris needing more reps I think it's about time we give Alan Ball the boot.
    The only thing I fear is Alan staying around because Wade likes guys from his old Cowboy defense.
    Does anyone see reason why we should keep him? Has he done any good?
    From what I've seen. I say no.

    Not to mention Kjax looks to be playing fairly well so far. We need to finally throw Brandon Harris in the fire and see what he can do. I say cut Ball and give Harris his reps.

    Ball's terrible, really terrible. He's a camp body (I hope) and never had any kind of shot here but it's got to be time to send him packing. I can't imagine any reason he'd need to stick around.

    Seems he was better than last week so I'm ok for now. Since he is familiar with Wade's system, think he would be better than what I've seen. Might be nerves as he knows this is probably last shot in NFL. Give him another game.

    It was a different game for him. He didn't have three pass-interference calls go against him, but he let his receiver beat him twice and both should have been touchdowns. Luckily for Ball the SF QB overthrew A.J. Jenkins both times.

    If ball continues to get reps over brandon Harris that would be pretty disturbing.

    Alan Ball is the lovechild of Petey Faggins and Phillup Buchanon.

    I guess bringing a vet like Ball in was to give our young confidence in their game. You know, like let them see first hand what NOT to do. He should be gone after the first cuts I'm hoping.

    That's funny, too. LOL!

    But I may change it to "Petit Bacon Ball".

    Petit (French) = Tiny, Little.

    LOL!

    Actually, while I was the first one to warn people not to put too much stock into the Ball's signing, I'm not going to write him off just yet.

    He was quite a good tackler especially on ST.

    That and his versatility (having played a ton both at safety and CB) may earn him a spot.

    It will depend on how the other young CBs shake out.

    Both Carmichael and McMannis showed promises, but who knows what Wade thinks.

    Lol.. that should happen when the receiver catches the ball every time it is thrown in your vicinity.

    Personally I think Alan Ball is a conspiracy theory! They brought him in so people would stop talking **** about Kareem Jackson! It seems to be working, some people are even praising KJ now.

    ^^^ This.

    In comparison to Ball, KJ is like Nnamdi and Revis rolled into one.
