In Response to Re: Big Question: Patriots cornerbacks
The secondary was solid last year with no pass rush and 3 new bodies on the field and basically ZERO pass rush against good offenses. You know, I have to chuckle at a Dolphin dork being here, repeatedly saying the same thing over and over and over and over..... and when you look at Miami's situation, even with Danbsy in a new 3-4 system and no legit NT on the line, your pass rush is arguably WORSE going into this season. Pat Kirwan focused on this recently and he's dead on. And your secondary is not only as questionable, it's a lot thinner than this one in NE, especially at Safety. Your secondary was AWFUL last year. Awful. I have no idea how this Yeremiah Bell character went to a Pro Bowl. You have lots of new pieces in terms of coaching, personnel and depth issues. Are Davis and Smith talented? Yes. But, stop acting like Miami is in better shape. You look like a fool trolling here constantly. Look in the mirror. Also, I am not convinced NY improved their passing attack with Sanchez needing to throw more (loss of #1 rushing attack) and Holmes in a new system missing the first 4 games of the season. I am not buying it. You are so quick to proclaim other teams as slam dunk improvments, and pretend things don't align for the Pats who have the best coaching staff in the division. Your act is getting really old and it's only July.

so now who is following who around the board crusty?
actually starks was quite effective at his time at NT, although admittedly...he is a better 3-4 DE...and if you are worried about dansby learning the system...then im worried about hernandez becoming dwight clark...are you catching my analogy here crusty?
and while i am worried about strong safety...whomever wins the job...couldnt possibly play any worse than gibril wilson did last year...not possible...and yeremiah bell is a nice player...not great...but he is better than either safety the pats can produce
as for the phins pass rush...we only had a small taste of cameron wake last year(he will be a beast on the pass rush) and getting rid of porter and taylor is addition by subtraction...as far as depth goes...you obviously didnt pay attention as we got tim dobbins from the chargers who is a very good player and our draft was comprised of mostly front 7 guys...ie...positions that you are more likely than not to have an immediate impact on...also very excited to see koa misi out there as a hybrid de/LB
and actually...i dont laud the improvements of other teams over what the pats did...i think the jets will stay about the same for all the new faces they brought in...but the phins made a concerted effort to get better and IMO, they did...especially if they avoid the injury bug that so plagued them last year
but look on the bright side crusty...ill be around for as long as you want me to be!
