    Re: Who are the new cornerbacks?

    This is what the Pats do so well. three vets at 29-30 yrs old.

    Bryant looks like a starter who can cover. Sanders is a big corner and Webster looks like he's quick and tough, though small and erratic.

    No pressure going into the draft and they can bring a CB (or two) along slowly.

    Wouldn't it be great if the root canal of watching them try to find linebackers went this smooth?

    Good deal Pats1. I was obviously scraping for consistent reports.

    I'd say an NFL starter, If needed, and two good situational players.

    Seems to me decent to good players can get very good on a great team, same as great players on very good teams are not so good when they go to bad teams.

    If anything, these guys finally get a chance to play on a very good - if not great - team.

    I think, all in all, we have upgraded our defensive backfield - Capers coming aboard along with adding Bryant has sent it over the top as far as I am concerned.

    Bryant gives us alot of flexibility in the draft. He could start if needed, so we don't HAVE to reach for a CB. The way it is now, unless they think that Merriweather is a true option at CB, which he could be, they have to think CB in Rd 1, 2 or early 3.

    Absolutely! What the hell is wrong with that group? Only 2nd in the league in sacks is simply unacceptable, despite their having the fewest defensive snaps in the league . The way those players are coddled by the media and some fans, you'd think that the team went 16-0 in the regular season and was just minutes away from becoming the first team in NFL history to go 19-0 or something...

    Of course opposing offenses spent most of the 1st half of the season in passing situations which makes rushing the passer easier.

    Statistics can be helpful, but our defense is predicated on the rush coming from any of the four linebackers. Bruschi is now zero threat to rush, where he used to be quite effective. Seau is probably as effective as a Phifer or Johnson.

    We had a good, albeit predictable outside rush with Vrable and colvin. Other than that we needed to blitz from the secondary.

    If Bryant and Webster's major flaws are that they gamble too much that won't be a problem here.

    The Patriots frown on gambling period. That's going to be drilled into them. That's why some CBs don't necessarilly want to play here - because while the D might be solid they won't pad their stats. That's not to say they won't get INTs - but they do need to be patient. Samuel certainly got his and he played within the system.

    Sanders sounds like someone who might be better off facing the ball, serving as depth at FS or SS.

    Ty Law and Asante Samuel gambled a lot. Difference is they were smart when they jumped routes and they usually (not always) ended in INTs. Gambling is built into the system and the way the Pats almost always guard against the big reception with over the top help allows the CBs to gamble. You just have to be wise about it, as the two best cornerbacks to have played here have shown.
