Good: â€¢ Barring the signing of some journeyman veteran CB, we will really get to see how these young turks we have been drafting the past 3-4 years are going to handle the workload. â€¢ The future was probably gonna be Darius Butler and McCourty anyway, so now we just to get to see it sooner. â€¢ I love to watch young kids coming into their own during the course of a season, especially in a Belichick defense. Bad: â€¢ Bodden is our only real veteran CB. â€¢ He played well for us last year, although I kind of thought he parlayed a decent season into a contract that paid him more than he is worth. â€¢ To his credit, he played well enough on the right team at the right time, a team that had very few veteran options at CB. â€¢ He will be missed for that reason (vet presence), if nothing else. With the young guns on deck, we may pay some heavy tolls early in the season until they become acclimated.
