    Yes...I agree good luck..too bad he was injured and hit a plateau...I think many penciled him in as the safety that would be with the team for years..instead..he was more a disappointment..

    "Wilson was a consistent presence in the lineup over the next two seasons (36 games, 35 starts) before things dipped unexpectedly."

    Eugene was consistently present in those lineups, he was not a consistent presence...things dipped once Rodney went down because Eugene couldn't think on his own feet without a leader let alone think for a unit.


    "I thought the year started off pretty good, I was playing consistent, but then I had the high ankle sprain," he said. "I was ready to come back but I was still on the inactive list for a couple games. I'm not sure the reason why.

    "Then when I was active again, it just seemed I was down further and further [on the depth chart]. I don't have an explanation. Maybe free agency had something to do with it."

    Look at 3 years of tapes Eugene, and then LOOK IN THE FRIGGIN' MIRROR for the reason.

    I would say he was neither a consistent presence, nor was he consistently present.

    Hard -- but fair.

    I'll always remember Geno for the hit against Dallas in the "Bill Bowl" -- the fair hit that was so massive that he got fined for it afterwards. He played with great agility and athleticism that season. It's too bad he didn't become the Pro Bowl type we could have hoped for.

    Good luck, man!

    Sad to see Geno go, even though he hasn't played consistently since 2004, take care Geno.
    Hope you end up in the NFC.

    I thought he was going to be a great player in the beginning... but, he was off and on at best.

    Oh well...

    Probably, he was hurt for a few years and then there was an influx of safeties on the team. He just couldn't catch up.

    He could start on another team, and if he can stay healthy, make a good career for himself

    Good luck Sir. Thanks for all the contributions and glad that the parting is without any negative comments, at least on public.

    The team that has him ranked second best is just stupid.

    Thats like me saying the best LB in Free Agency was Larry Izzo.

    I doubt that many folks here will agree, but I had wanted Geno to re-convert to CB as soon as it became clear that Rodney, Sanders and Meriweather (plus S/STers Mitchell and Andrews) were the top choices at Safety. Considering that we had no depth at CB (A$$ante, Hobbs and Gay. Period.), I thought this would have been a no-brainer. Heck, he maybe should have returned to his All-American position during the '06 season.

    Does anyone remember if Wilson was on the field during the Drive That Must Not Be Mentioned?

    Wilson was going to be the starter for the Patriots this past season, until he got hurt again. His coverage ability, when healthy, was something the team missed with him not in the lineup, as we saw again and again. Hopefully, Meriweather will be ready to pick up the slack this season.
