In response to LazarusintheSanatorium's comment:
Can someone inform attempt to inform bredbu of the following: He made no mention (no memorable one that I can recall) about Corteland Finnegan (as opposed to no less than 20 seperate threads dedicated to the worship of all-things Janoris Jenkins), annnd How NE's Sack stats up front thus far have them ranked in a tie with 6 other teams @ #19 in the NFL (19, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24) vs St. Louis's Front 7's ability to put pressure on the opposing QB have them tied with 3 other teams in total sacks as being the 6th best pass-rushing Defense in Sacks so far (you're gonna have to offer a lengthy discourse about how this correlates to pass-coverage btw), annnd that Jenkins covers the #2 WR, verses covering the #1 WR WAY more often than not, ala Corteland Finnegan...and Devin McCourty, btw, annnnd how DMC's stat line is 26 TTs, 10 PDs, and 2 INTs + 6 KR's for 141 yards @ a 23.5 avg, compared to Janoris Jenkins' stat-line of: 24 TTs, 7 PDs, and 1 INT + 3 PR's for 22 yards @ a 7.3 avg (3 PDs in last game, prior to that 1 PD in each preceding matchup), annnd how Alfonzo Dennard (my fav CB btw-, next to DMC, and just in front of KA) just might not be quite ready to immediately jump in-to the same "hands down the #1 NE CB over DMC" label that bredu has formerly granted Ras I Dowling, then Sterling Moore, then Kyle Arrington during these past several months alone...considering the fact that Dennard's "superstar shutdown CB" ability might have to come a tad bit further than having a few Tackles & 1 PD, while subbing in at the nickel CB position situationally in the 2nd half of (what?)=1 game.
on the nfl teams we coach in our fantasy :) i'll take jenkins you can have mcc.
i never said arrington was good, in fact from the time i found this forum, ive said he can tackle well after the catch, but cant defend passes.
in the plyoffs when moore was inserted he was our best cb with dowling out (which is what i said).
before dowling got hurt, he was our best performing cb which is what i said.
i have indeed said dennard may be a good starting cb[and if so, bb may show why he is smarter than us by getting him in the 7th).
and to catch you up, ive also that id like to see us start dennard and dowling.
and by the way sure id love to have quinn on the other side of jones in fantasyland :)
hope you are having a good day/week.
