    He may not be great, but according to me great is a very high mark. Brady is great. Revis is great. Ray Lewis was Great. I don't expect Talib to be great. I expect him to be good.

    I don't remember anyone ever saying he was. If he can just be above average to good it's a win. Anything better is icing on the cake.

    We don't need great. We need competent+.

    Disable Jersey

    Peter needs to step up his game. That's shoddy work.

    I stopped paying attention to what Peter Dink, I mean King, thinks, says or writes a long, long time ago. He's an expert on four things: coffee, microbrews no self-respecting beer drinker would touch, his daughter's high school softball career and the detailed terrain of Brett Favre's testicles.

    King completely whiffed on that one. Though I'll take great, I'll also take good at this point as well. And that's what Talib is: good.

    At some point, Peter King went negative on the Patriots.

    Isn't this the same guy that has Tony Gonzalez on his "all pro" tight end list and no Gronkowski?

    King's been putting a bit too much Bailey's in his mocha latte from Starbucks.

    His personnel assesments of NFL talent are meaningless.

    Re: Peter King on WEEI:Talib not a great corner

    IMO this trade is not simply a question of individual talent added. It's a tipping point situation: adding that one extra press-style CB should allow schematic changes to make the whole defense more aggressive.

    So if Talib is merely "pretty good," his IMPACT could well be "great."

    Talib only has to be better than Arrington and Moore as far as I am concerned. He doesn't need to be "Great".

    I think Stephen King knows more about football than peter king.

    I still don't get why the media gives PFF so much credit and publicity. It only shows their lack of football intelligence to informed fans.

    I tend to think that if it was Revis with the police jacket 3 inches think he would have fetched a 2nd or 1st rounder (salary considerations notwithstanding)
