    He could be available, but the Eagles like to come out ahead on trades.

    I want them to call the giants and asked for Osi instead.Osi still has something left in the tank.

    I think we're pretty set at cornerback.

    ^^^^^^^^ this. He does his own thing too much and gives up huge plays more often then he comes through as a ballhawk. Merriwether looks at the bench enough for doing this, we don't need someone with a $9,000,000 paycheck doing it too.

    Re: Assante might be available

    Precisely my point in one of the many threads here.
    BB has also said that we can't use guys who won't tackle. What makes the Asante fanbois think that Samuel has changed his game? He hasn't.

    I said he wouldn't see the end of his deal with the Eagles when he signed it. He's a ballhawk, and those guys can help you or hurt you depending on the system and surroundings. Let alone if you pay them like they're something else.

    I think you can be a ballhawk without being too much of a gambler. Not all ballhawks will hurt you.

    Just say no.

    He is supposedly the subject of trade talks with the Cards and Eagles, hope he enjoys the Valley of the Sun.

    He would be teamed up with Patrick Peterson who i think will be really good.The problem with arizona is that they dont have no QB.Kevin Kolb to me is not that great.

    He'd definitely upgrade the secondary, but the price would probably be too high.

    If he restructured I'd be all for it but I doubt he would but on another note why does all Patriot fans bring up the dropped INT in the game that shall not be named when Harrison and Merriweather both drop INTs on the very same drive and Woods somehow lost a fumble recovery after being the only person to fall on it.

    This team is banking alot on Bodden.I really hope he plays well.I am expecting McCourthy to make huge strides in his second year.

    If the strides McCourty makes in his second year are anything like the improvement he showed in his first, he'll be the best in the business. Arrington is another one who made great strides last year, and by the end of the season, he was a decent #2 corner. I would expect stiff competition and more time in the sytem would make Bodden better, but I suppose a drop off is always possible. We have a good secondary, and they are relatively cheap too.

    I don't remember Harrison missing an INT. I do remember Harrison trying to break the back of a receiver rather than just knocking the ball (which was attached to his helmet) away. That receiver was Asante's assignment, and he gave up on the play when it looked like there was a sack, I guess.

    I don't blame Woods, I blame the ref. The ball is fumbled, he falls on it and then the ref lets Bradshaw wrestle it away. As soon as Bradshaw touched him he should have been called down by contact.

    He won't come because of the money - but people shouldn't bash Asante because of his bad exit... He'd be an improvement over Butler, Arrington,...

    He won't come. But even though his tackling is suspect, he'd still have a place on this D if money didn't matter.

    This secondary gave up tons of big plays last year still.I still remember Arrington having a bad game against the jets in the playoffs.I am hopeful that they will be able to create a pass rush this year.

    It was an out route to I believe Toomer and it went right through his hands just like it did Merriweather (which was a diving attempt, which admittedly would have been difficult) and Asante's but no ever mentioned them because Asante was the guy who was leaving the team and the aforementioned play.

    Re: Assante might be available

    Asante would be an improvement if you're looking to create turnovers rather than play coverage with your corners. The problem with Samuel is he's a gifted ball hawk but he's susceptible to conceding big plays.

    We don't know what we have in Dowling yet.

    Not nearly as good as McCourty not as good as a healthy Bodden IMO.
