    The only thing worse than paying a #2 corner $8.6 million is paying another #2 corner $11.2 million.

    Sorry, Verner fans, but it's the truth. The guy is good. He isn't great.

    McCourty is owed a lot of money, that's why he's an automatic starter. I'm not saying he isn't good I'm saying he isn't great. Definitely not $8mil a year corner money great. McCourty has been starter one whole year longer than Vern and still has almost the exact same stats.

    McCourty: 3 year starter, 38 passes defended, and 6 picks over that span

    Verner: 2 year starter, 32 passes defended, and 7 picks over this span

    Also Verner had 78 tackles, 11 passes defended and 3 picks his rookie year starting in only 12 games which is better than JMac did starting every game last season. My point being that Verner showed signs of being a what he is now from the get-go. Bringing in a horribly bad DC in Verner's 2nd year whose supposed specialty is DBs played a big part in Vern not getting his due playing time in 2011. Gray looked at Vern as a slow undersized corner who didn't deserve playing time over Cortland and the bigger faster McCourty even though it was clear to most of us that Vern was the better corner.

    And when Cortland left for STL and that $50 million deal, we foolishly signed JMac to that equally horrible 6 year $44.26 million deal. Had our FO played it right and locked JMac and Verner up appropriately they'd both be playing under 5 year $25 million deals. BUT now we're at the point where we've overpaid for McCourty and Verner is about to get mega rich elsewhere. Of course it was Reinfeldt who gave JMac his deal so I can only hope that Ruston will make much wiser decisions for us now that he is the man. That said I still think that Verner is a goner and JMac will still be our #1 corner even though he's much more suited to be a solid #2 to Verner.
