    I think that we should be happy that the hole at nickel has be filled with Sanders. Webster and Richardson could also compete for the position. I think that Webster is an upgrade over Spann, although Spann can still compete for the #4 CB/ST position.

    It's nice to have a few options and competition...and the draft and other FAs will enter into it as well..depth is a good thing.

    What metric gives you the notion that we've upgraded over Gay?

    Gay was ok, but he is definitely overpaid in NOLA.. he was an overachiever in a system that had really good coaching and played to his strengths..

    He was talking about Lewis Sanders, not James Sanders

    I'm not sure how anyone can seriously say Lewis Sanders is an upgrade over Gay at this point. Time will tell

    Webster isn't an upgrade over Spann and Richardson? How many tackles did they have between them while playing corner last year? Of course, I'm not counting on him to "start" at all, never mind all 16 games. In fact, I hope he doesn't even make the team, being beat out by a draftee, but for now, he's an upgrade.
