    Could be a way of feeling more comfortable trading Meriweather. Would like to have just re-signed Jarrad Page, though. Maybe just more due diligence.

    Apparently the Pats are loading up on guys that were really good in the 2004-2008 time period.

    2004 - Shaun Ellis 11 sacks
    2005 - Darren Sharper 9 picks
    2006 - Mark Anderson 12 sacks
    2007 - Andre Carter 10.5 sacks
    2008 - Albert Haynesworth 8.5 sacks

    This makes a lot of sense. There is not a lot of depth at the DB position, especially at safety.

    This team went from being called an old team to last year being one of the youngest and now potentially back closer to the senior side again?

    Every year is different for sure

    I wouldn't mind Sharper on an one year veteran's deal. He is only one year removed from 9 INTs and 15 PDs. Granted he is 35 and coming off a significant injury last year.

    Why not look at Deon Grant if they are looking at safeties though. Probably the best one still on the market.

    Sharper gave us a lot of trouble when the Saints laid a big good old fashioned whupping on us two years ago. He was consistently sitting on the quick slants and breaking them up pretty good.

    Perhaps Sharper can still be a help in an attacking defense. If this team sits back for a read and react with Sharpe, though, I'm thinking :bricks:

    He's 35, but I like his hard hitting and his attitude. He could be another leader for the defense too.

    Re: Sharper and Hill Coming in Too

    I think I actually prefer Hill to Sharper. He's started all but two games over the past 3 seasons, and while not as flashy, he's the better overall player right now, in my opinion. And if Bill is looking to replace Meriweather, then consistent is what he wants.

    Merriweather- what sort of pick do you think we could get for him? We could also add some of our future PS players if we know that team has a need @ a certain position to sweeten deal. Hell vwe could even add tate:cool:



    what would Merry get us straight up?


    makes sense to cash in on a 1 year dude

    Before the lockout, I would've said a 3rd. But if Bill really wants to replace him that much, then probably a 4th.

    A 3 would be :) a 4 thou??? not to thrilled about a 4th. Who are some desperate DB teams? plz say Al Davis:p Aso is gone and he would be a far cheaper option than he was.


    A 4 does not impress me. BM is overrated in my book, but he is a solid body to help our depth. I rather keep him if it is indeed a 4th the dude can still play, just lapses in zone coverage

    I don't see either of these as potential replacements for Meriweather.

    Maybe a depth signing, but still not all that keen on either.

    Re: Sharper and Hill Coming in Too

    I don't think this has anything to do with Brandon M.

    Sanders has been sidelined for a few days now. Barrett too. Dowling made only one practice, if you consider him an option for snaps at safety. That hardly leaves enough players at the position to incorporate some of the schemes BB must want to mix in.

    If Sharper has anything left and would come at a reasonable price, why wouldn't you bring him in for a look see. It's not like they couldn't dump one of the twenty-odd DL they have in camp.

    Re: Sharper and Hill Coming in Too

    A month before the season opener inviting in guys off the waiver wire is not very likely an attempt to find a starter, or a reaction to something about one of the other 90 players on the roster.

    They are available. Bringing them in is to see what they have left. Finding unemployed players during training camp is not a way to manage the top of your depth chart.

    Sharper reminds me of the attempt to bring John Lynch in, and I'd expect it to go the same way. Hill has never impressed me much.

    I've always hoped Sharper would be a Patriot. I just think it may be a little too late. It would be something though if he had enough left in the tank to resurrect his career at a high level.

    Darren Sharper would be an excellent addition. Who do we even have aside from Chung, Meri and Sanders?

    The safety issue I had been curious about. Never been an BM fan....except in the privacy of my bathroom, but I also believe that Chung has been a liability in the passing game.

    I'm not sensing desperation but I think they're gonna try to minimize the damage as much as possible by weeding through a bunch of bodies.

    Lose a CB and trade for a S to replace him?

    Also, a player is only worth what someone else will pay for him, not what you want.

    Stop.
