    6'1", 210. Better than 5'9, right?

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    some height!! yay!!

    In all seriousness, It really sucks that we lost that first round pick. We could have possibly picked up Gholston (or someone similar) AND a stud CB. Well, the draft is deep in CBs, so we should be able to pick up a decent one. But still....what could have been....

    Well, he did have DeAngelo Hall and Chris Houstan ahead of him, and many people on this board love those two guys and want them on this team, so he can't be that bad...

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    Looks like we'll be going into draft day with JAGs filling up our CB spots. In all honesty, it wouldn't be the end of the world if we had JAGS filling up the CB spots for the season. We've won a superbowl that way before.

    Training camp competition is going to be intense at the CB position.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    Get as many experienced defensive backs as possible and let them

    compete for roster spots. Also, draft a couple of cornerbacks and

    develop them.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    I'm gonna go on the record here and say that Lewis Sanders sucks. I've seen him play; he is bad. He is one player who definetly they are gonna see if Capers can turn his career around. But I expect him to be cut. I hope I'm wrong and he performs.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    My thoughts exactly. Let 'em slug it out in camp. We're bound to come away with one or two good ones to complement Hobbs.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    Are we doing this to muscle up Brandon Merriweather into thinking he's no gimmee for week 1 at corner?

    But the Giants have a hell of a pass rush.

    Well then let's see if he can do something in training camp. Hope he does well.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    Right.

    Which is why our defensive money needs to be tied up in front-7 depth, not on CBs.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    Well Capers has coached him before so apparently he didn't have much negative to say about him.

    EDIT: Nevermind, Remix got it.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    The Pats scheme for the front 7 is more gap control, less attack-style. Perhaps this will change when we draft Big Vernon. With Vrabel, Vernon, Thomas, Seymour and Green coming after the QB we could have a ferocious rush.

    Re: CB Lewis Sanders signed.

    Do you know what team was 2nd in the league in sacks after the Giants last season? I'd give you a hint but I bet you already know the answer.

    Just because our 3-4 is designed to stop the run first doesn't mean we don't pass-rush, or focus on good pass-rushing technique as a significant part of the game.
