In response to rkarp's comment:
I never commented on Spears. I have only seen Spears play a couple of times on TV, but I recall he was a 1 gap DT, quick thru the gap, but not capable of playing 2 gap, meaning he isnt for this style of defense
I did think Huff was a better option than AWilson. Remember him? He didnt make it to the first game.
I would rather have still gone after Wilson than Huff. To compare the two is embarrassing. Wilfork got hurt, Mayo got hurt. Stuff happens. Guys lost a step, get hurt, etc. You have to get them in camp before you can judge.
Good news is, in spot duty as a rookie, Harmon looks comfortable. That's a good sign.
The point of this isn't what happens, but fit and the money. Wilson was a better player, option and much better value.
How do you think the Texans feel with Ed Reed lumbering around on a bad hip and leg at 6 mil per? Stupid move.
When Reed got 6, I said "go to get Wilson". It didn't work, but WIlson was clearly a better choice than Mike Freaking Huff whom Raiders fans could not stand.
Finally, you did start whining about some DTs like Branch in Buffalo and others, where I believe Spears was mentioned by you.
This was at the time you were drooling over every player signed by any AFC rival AFTER BB made any move. Remember?
At the end of the day, I kept telling you the picture may not be complete. I'd rather have Sopoanga than Spears, Branch, etc.
Main reason being he's better in the 3-4 than either. And, he's now cheaper since half the season is gone. Thanks, BB.
Anyway you slice it, you lost. You and the MT Hurl dorks like to feel secure under a blanket with what BB does in FA in March and the summer. You don't have to go shopping all at once.
I never wanted Reed, always thought he was a dirty player and bad guy. Never wanted AWilson, thought he slowed down too much. Had interest in Huff at the right price. Still do, at the right price he would be a good 3rd S. I am not impressed so far with Harmon, takes very poor angles, step too slow. is more a SS than FS type imo.
