If Bryant was so good the freaking lowly Lions would have done all they could to keep him around,even if it meant messing around with the cap some - The Lions did not think he was worth keeping on a team which is almost certain to crap the bed again -
Bryant sucks as we will see in another week or two- There has got to be a JAG for some competition in cuts this week,even if its not Manning Jr.
Hobbs and Bryant as starting corners on this team could make all of a mans hair fall out,although right now I am not so sure Hobbs will blow this year.
You don't have to tell me, I know all about it, tell guys like Sicilian who are so drunk on the BB Koolaid they believe Bryant is the answer.

Hey BrIZ, how come this great talent evaluator didn't attack you when you said that same thing as I did ? Wow.......
You sound like you're the one with the Madden 09 based on your comments. But wait, because BB signed Bryant, HE MUST BE GOOD RIGHT ? I mean, he's had all of 7 picks in 9 years of NFL work, Terry Glenn will do that math for you, that equates to a little under 1 pick per season, .6888 something like that. And ya, what am I thinking. Bryant was fantastic in these 3 pre-season games. Truly Lock-down like.
Because I haven't noticed Briz taking EVERY opportunity to slam all of our corners in every thread.
Couple things. One, I don't think he's a pro-bowler by any means, but I also don't think you NEED pro-bowlers at CB to win super bowls. See Moreland, Earthwind. Also, I don't think our CBs were put in the best position to succeed in the preseason. Will they suddenly become shutdown? No. But they're going to be better, I can almost guarantee you that.
Second thing, 7 picks in 9 years is .777777 per season. Pet peeve But regardless, just like sacks alone don't reflect a great lineman, INTs don't reflect a great CB. They DO, however, make the CB cost a lot more money.
Vasher was injured last year. Manning stepped in. He then was replaced as a starter by a 7th round draft pick (Trumaine McBride). With the drafting of Zackary Bowman, it essentially made him the roster's fifth cornerback. Sorry, but being placed fifth on the depth chart speaks to a lack of talent.
Vasher is still the starting CB it dont matter that he was injured he would be the starting CB this season and Manning would still be 3rd or nickle on the depth chart. When Vasher went down early in the season Manning didnt step in for long, they went with McBride soon after which pissed Manning off. You dont show a lack of talent in a few games when your history as a solid corner shows you can play. They just went in another direction and like i said its hard to put up stats as a nickle corner.
Manning is still a good CB, he was let go because of a bad relationship with the front office.
