    I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little worried. Who covers Dwayne Bowe next Sunday?

    This secondary isn't making me feel too good. But, let's hope that it all works out.

    Could Brendan be a starting safety, but be the nickle/dime CB, and have Lynch and Rodney as safeties in the nickle and dime?

    How can you not be nervous. They make 2 free agent CB signings and both get whacked. You gotta hit on 1 at least.

    On the brightside I think Wheatley and Wilwhite poutplayed the vets.

    This opens the door for a vet corner Law? Detha O'neail got cut?? Lito Sheppard???

    It's goin to be interesting to see how the secondary players will be used in certain situations.

    If they really want him they could ship one of the 2nd rounders for him I think Philly would go for it.

    Clearly last year's end-of-half experiments with Moss in the defensive backfield gave BB the confidence to move him to corner full time.

    Well. That or another corner will be brought in.

    Haha, that would satisfy the desire for a tall corner now, wouldn't it? ;)

    with the added use of Safties as nickle and dimes I think 4 is fine for depth. I am concerned a little with a rookie starting though both have looked real good. IMO the over abundance of youth would make a Ty Law a nice pick up but if we dont I think the depth is fine.

    If Poteat remains on the street for the season I could see him getting the call at some point (due to an injury) but I just don't see them rushing to go get him.

    Pats may have the worst CB's in the NFL. Their safeties are ok at best unless Merriweather makes an impact. They need a trade/sign Law or it's 2002 and 2005 all over again. And I don't think Law is the savior either. He's just the best guy on the market right now.

    And why does everybody want Hank Poteat? The guy's trash and I don't care if he "knows the system". Wake up people! The Pats need talent, not scrubs who "know the system".

    Believe it or not, this defense is going to have a major dropoff from last season. Their in transition from their LB's to their secondary and I am probably the only one that thinks their D-Line needs a change as well. Despite people hyping up the Pats D-Line as one of the best in the league, they couldn't get a push if their life depended on it. And I'm not talking about this preseason, I have thought about this for a few years now, especially after that pathetic performance on the final drive of the superbowl. In the end, their going to need to get a fierce pass rush from Thomas, Crable and Vrabel or their secondary is going to get torched on a regular basis.

    And to clarify for people that think I want to cut the entire defense; I don't. I like Wilfork and Warren but Warren had his best year in '06. This is a make or break year for Seymour, he didn't do a damn thing last year. Jarvis Green disappears a lot.

    And what makes you think the 2nd and 4th round picks plus Hobbs don't = talent? They might be raw talent, but one has to assume the coaches saw something they liked.

    Hobbs sucks, I like Wheatley but I haven't seen Whilite yet. With that said, the Pats didn't do their homework this offseason and tried to get out the cheap way again but failed with the Bryant experiment. Unless down the line the Pats pull a Branch for Moss in the secondary, I'll be fine. But if they don't do something this year or next year, they made a mistake and should have signed Samuel.
