    I don't see all this potential in Verner and McCourty is entering his 3rd season. We have seen a lot of Cbs come here to play and none of them get better over time so where do we ever assume that?

    Beckham
    Echols
    Waddell
    Garner
    Woolfolk

    Those guys still developing?



    Either a guy can play or he can't period! It's not a 5 year program.


    Verner is neither big nor fast. He is smart as hell so the learning curve for him is not long. Ideally he is a slot NB guy. McCourty to me is a good backup outside but i wouldn't want to go to war with the guy every week. He did improve from his rookie year no question but can he keep improving?

    Another issue of course is the depth behind those 3 guys. Nothing from what i can see.

    So how then is Finny not necessary? I would give him a 2 year extension.

    I agree with you. Verner is a good player, will he ever be great? I hope so, but probably not. He lacks elite size and quickness, but is a VERY smary player. McCourty has shown me nothing to give him a starting role, he's a solid depth player, but nothing more. I kina wish we would went after a CB in FA, but I think Verner and McCourty deserve one more year - one of them could easily step up big. But I also think Verner is more of a NB player, so we just need a legit #1 or a solid #2 to pair with Finny, and keep Verner in the NB, and McCourty as the #4 CB for added depth.

    Hopefully Finny, Verner, and McCourty all stay healthy and shine this year, then we won't have to worry about it :D

    you give Dehr Schwartzie waaaay more credit than I do, and thats fine. CC was a huge dissapointment no doubt. I am unsure if it was him or fish face, but either way between the DL playing smear the queer and the CBs playing hide and seek it was pretty real bad

    And I am definatly a Finnegan fan, totally POed at him for saturday but I'll get over it.

    I think McCourty gets overhyped because of his brother. I've actually seen the post "I mean, look at his brother.. he's gotta be pretty good."... lol

    He went from decent to awful after the fight with Johnson last year, it was obvious Johnson got in his head as you saw him not being aggressive any more after that for the rest of the reason. He can be top 5 if he plays to his strengths again and that's being annoying for opposing WR's.

    IF we were to trade him, what could we get in return?

    They aren't going to trade him. Doesn't matter.

    I'm not sure if it was Johnson, so much as fear of suspensions, the national media acting like he is a terrible person, etc.

    ...and I have a hard time judging a CB when the unit as a whole was so off.
