    The season would be over even if the Patriots had won the Super Bowl 45-0. We would still be looking at team needs.

    As a shutdown I hold Grimes over Joseph and Gamble...Joseph probably best corner in NFL against deep balls, but not that good in the short passing game.
    Bailey sure maybe but not a future CB. Haden is great.

    I like Grimes, great tackler, usually in good position to defend passes and rarely gives up big plays.

    I don't like PFF's ranking but the stats (thrown at, receptions, yards, YAC, pass defended) they coming up with usually is quite accurate.

    PFF blows. It's been demonstrated time and again.

    The day he was drafted he came with the Fragile handle with care sicker attached. A number of posters said it wasn't true, but so far it has been I wouldn't count on IR Dowling at all to save the day, when he can't seem to save himself from the IR.

    I was looking at your post count. But you're quite right, though, I'm not sure that reflects well if you knew all of this already.

    So we keep on spending rescourcss on a position because we haven't found the next revis? Like I said, upgrade the front 4 with some real talent and add one piece to the secondary.

    This league only has one shutdown CB with Revis. I can't put a 34 year old Bailey with him and Nnamdii regressed in the Eagles defense.

    In today's NFL, it's almost impossible to be a shutdown CB. For all the respect I have for Revis, it's obvious on numerous replays he does the "Revis hold".

    So yeah, go with what we have, four CBs less than 26 years old.

    A good CB isn't what this defense needs. We need a DT that gets pressure inside. Right now we have two DTs that play the sponge position. We need a DT that can penetrate (doubling Wilfork = game over) and a really athletic DE and our secondary will look great. This secondary is young. We need a vet or two to lead these guys and thats it.
