    **Note - Just wondering. His stats are definitely nothing to get excited about.

    Haven't you learned your lesson about over-the-hill cornerbacks who get cut from crappy teams??? Guess not...

    Haha - Hey these guys all manage a few good games before they burn out. Maybe we can squeeze three good games out of him. :D

    I'd have to agree with letekro on this one. I've seen what Deltha O'Neal can do after being cut by the Bengals. Kelly used to be good (like O'Neal) but unfortunately he's past his prime now. And, he was let go from a team even worse than the Bengals. :eek: No thanks on this one. Let Wilhite get the playing time under his belt.

    The Pats don't play any Tampa 2 D, do they?

    On the surface, it sounds like a bad fit. IMHO

    This is the more important factor, I agree.

    He couldn't be any worse than Delta O'Neal...Brian Kelly would be taking O'neal's spot. I think BB has seen enough of O'Neal, i would be shoked if we didn't make a run at him.

    I understand why everyone is ripping O'Neal, but didn't he also have two game-saving plays in narrow wins against the Chiefs and the Rams? If having him is bad, how much worse would not having him have been?

    I think we've been pretty harsh, but I think he's clearly wearing down fast.

    FINALLY we can win Super Bowl XXXVII!

    Oh wait you weren't talking about time-traveling?

    Tougher sale. But then again, I'm pretty sure that an EMS dummy is behind Deltha O'Neal on the depth chart. Is he better than an EMS dummy?

    For $219,000 for three weeks, probably a playoff contender will grab him. Don't forget he needs to clear waivers.

    If BB thinks he can help this team get the playoffs I'm down.

    Given how losing a player to IR is a weekly occurence, might as well sign him now just to stay ahead of the curve.

    But he was also a far better CB than O'Neal was....so is his talent floor lower or higher than O'Neal's? I'd vote for higher and thus worth a flyer.

    ??????? Based on what? I know Kelly was never more than a 2 at Tampa. I don't know much about O'Neal, but he has 34 interceptions and 2 ProBowls.

    O'Neal looks clueless at times to me, but saying a journeyman is far greater than someone who has been judged as the best once and put up serious numbers seems like a real stretch.
