    He went to college in Dallas, so I'm assuming that was a big draw. Not much you can do to keep a guy around when he's offered a job in a place that he's very familiar with.

    Best of luck to Sterling Moore. I'm actually sad to see him go. I'll always remember the play on Lee Evans.

    I wish him well. He worked very hard and made some good plays when we were really stinko.

    Hopefully we won't miss him, but you can't blame a guy for trying to further his career, nobody handed him anything.

    Without Moore the Ravens would have been 2011 AFC Champions

    Without Moore this year vs Denver we might have lost that game if Moore doesn't punch that ball out of Thomas's hands in the first quarter on that long Manning Pass destined for an easy TD.

    Moore made some nice plays for us and I wish him well.

    BTW: Moore with a bad game is still better than Arrington.

    The Cowboys have a fine backup CB

    Good for Moore, glad he caught on somewhere. Hope he has a lot of success in Dallas.

    You may want to reconsider this now that Arrington is back in the slot where he belongs. Since his demotion after the PI on the first drive against the Colts, he's been pretty good.

    So what would the reaction be around here if he left for the Ravens, Broncos or another team we may face in the playoffs. ;)

    Imagined how happy we'd all be if he pick 6's the Gmen and bounces them from the playoffs.

    C'mon cowgirls!

    I thought that Moore was pretty much a lock to deserve another chance this season to show what he potentially had, and I am glad that they gave it to him.

    He had close to 1/2 the defensive snaps for the first half of the season, and did a good job on Larry Fitzgerald as the scheme was great.

    That said, he is pretty slow and while I much would've rather had him on the practice squad if needed, the other members of the secondary are stepping up and allowing us to play more man to man coverage. I won't say that he reached his potential ceiling, but I will say that he is pretty much "average" which makes him JAG.

    Best wishes to him in Dallas (good lord)..

    I'm not sure how often you actually get a chance to watch Dallas play, but I am stuck pretty much every game due to my wife being a die-hard fan. She gives me the courtesy of following my Pats and rooting like hell for them, so I try and do the same in return...but IT IS HARD TO WATCH!!

    I would love for them to somehow knock the NYG out, as the Giants have some difficult games coming up, but that would mean that Dallas would have to win and I honestly don't see that happening too often.

    They seem like 7-9/8-8 is what they are going to do just about every year right now. We can all thank our higher powers that we don't have an owner like Jones.

    I like Moore...he seems like a player but he really lacks the tools.

    I do know Supa, I just don't think Moore has played well enough to be considered average. He had some moments but he also frequently sucked. I don't mean to bash the guy (he was giving it his all - that says something good about him) but that is how I saw it. And, as you touched on, the secondary is stepping up. If Talib plays close to as billed and signs on past this season, him-Dennard-Arrington-<others> weren't going to leave Moore a good chance for playing time.
    Having him on the PS was not a bad thing but his departure has no real affect on the Patriots. For Moore the player this move gives him a better opportunity (good for him).

    I think what happen with Moore is he had a limited ceiling and that showed this season. If he was some that BB and staff saw as developmental I'm almost certain they would of found a way to retain him either with a PS raise or putting him back on the active roster.

    Looking at next season we will likely retain Talib as long as he continues to play well and behave, Dowling will be back, Dennard 2nd season and likely add a CB or SS in the early rounds of the draft.

    Sterling will always have a place in my heart.

    Hope he has fruitful career with at least one decent pay day.
    Except for when he plays the pats.

    good luck Sterling.

    Interesting that the Cowboys play the Bengals and the Steelers in their last five games - Sterling may make a major difference in the AFC playoffs seeding.

    Good luck, Sterling - you're greatly appreciated in New England.

    This is the thing. I'll cut Dowling some slack b/c he had buzzard's luck with the injuries. He needs to stay healthy- period.

    The problem is that when he has been out there, his play has been very erratic. Needs to be way more consistient.

    At this point he is a bubble guy for those two reasons...

    This.

    He's never been a great outside the numbers guy. Guy is superb in the slot.

    Hey, I don't understand the problem. When you are on the PS and other team offers you a chance to be on the 53 man roster......you GO! Plain and simple.

    Moore was a good role player. He's a perfect example of the maxim: "more is less". The longer he was on the field more he became exposed. In small doses however he could be effective.

    Best of luck to him. You can never not root for a "try hard" guy, who was making the most of his talents and opportunities and THAT describes Sterling Moore.

    Such a shame. Those instincts and hard hitting abilities are rare in a CB; unfortunately they were placed in an FCS caliber athlete. (5'9 4.55 forty won't cut it as an NFL CB)

    I wish him luck and hope we draft Mathieu late to take his place.

    It won't be this season unless they meet in the post season. They've already played twice.

    I do hope that Talib works out. Wasting a 4th, a 5th, and a 6th in one draft doesn't seem to be too favorable.

    I do think that he'll need to prove himself here though, as his asking price may very well end up being something around 7 million per considering that he was a 1st round pick and has played well enough to earn what many of the other CBs in the league are earning.

    I could see Talib being what Bodden's pact was supposed to be, which was a fair market value deal for both sides. The only difference in this situation is that you'd have to consider a bit of inflation which is how I reached the 7 million per year number.

    If Talib doesn't prove himself enough, then they may have a hard time reaching a deal as Belichick isn't going to want to pay him what he is looking for. Hell, even if he does prove himself they may have a hard time reaching a deal.

    If he doesn't prove himself here, there will be no offer.

    If he is asking for a $7m annually, he won't get a response from the Pats FO.

    While it is certainly debatable, I feel that you may be undervaluing the market value of CBs in this league.

    There have been a seriously high number of CBs in the past that have driven up the average fair market price for the position.

    Most felt that Arrington would demand around 6-7 million per prior to the start of this season (obviously he won't get that now but I'm talking prior to the 2012 season), and not only hasn't he played nearly as well as Talib has on a more consistent level throughout his career, he was not taken in the first round of the draft.

    Leigh Bodden was making almost 6 million per year on average and that was signed in 2009, not 2013.

    I would see Talib's deal being somewhere in the range of Bodden's.

    I would have rather seen Arrington cut and Moore promoted to be our slot or dime corner. I'm sad to see him go and wish him the best, even though Dallas and the Cowboys are hot garbage.
