Re: CB Strategy - TSAAWASWS!
I think some of us are selling these new FAs short. Our defense doesn't require Deion Sanders and Darrell Green back there. Just smart guys, who understand what the offense is trying to do, and take pride in doing their jobs. Really, look who we've thrown out there at corner/nickel the last five years or so. You have Ty Law and Asante Samuel, who are Pro-Bowlers (although let's see what Asante does in Philly). Then:
Starks was truly horrible, but the other guys have been able to function competently in our system. Could they be upgraded? Of course, and they were eventually. But the point is that other teams are going to value cornerbacks higher than BB will. We don't need athletic freaks or guys who can cover man-on for eight seconds. Just smart guys who know their job.
I'll be shocked if a rookie comes in and starts for us barring a health epidemic.
