In response to RockScully's comment:
Generally agree with Chung not working out, but what are you looking for in skill set? I'd rather have another guy like McCOurty with range v.s. a traditional in the box SS.
I don't know enough about Moore to comment, but Goldson is also likely going to be released by SF with what he is due, which would make him a FA again. Maybe BB ups the offer and he's the guy.
S, DE/DT, WR and OL are the top spots for me in FA and in the draft.
The reason I would say no to another FS type because you HAVE 3 safeties who were former Cbs. We lacked Toughness in the back end and I dont want another hybrid/finess safety. Wilson will fill a role next year but Im not sold on him being a full time safety yet. I believe we need to get back to having a FS and SS like Rodney and Eugene. These last few years these "cover safeties have not shown up in postseason and had any effect. I almost miss James Sanders who was a solid tackler atleast. Goldson is anyones guess. Did he leave here because $$ wasnt right or just not a good fit?? Moore is a young Beast of a safety. Think Adrian Wilson type with less height. Im hoping Atlanta has too many pressing needs and cant retain him.
He felt SF was closer and the money was more in SF. He just said this the other day when asked at media day.
I think the game has changed far too much to pretend a traditional SS and FS is what is needed. I'd rather have speed, range and tackling vs some muscle bound supposed intimidator.
Wilson and Rodney wouldn't work as well in this era as they did back then. Just saying.
These hybrid, athletic TEs are all the rage and most LBs can't cover them so you need 1 if not 2 Safeties who can cover. I don't want some lumbering SS who can only be effective in the box.
Chung was really only effective in the box and moving laterally. Polamalu is no different. He'd make on nice play and then get toasted on the next.
Those kinds of old school SSs aren't really around anymore.
Wow, last year you were raving about Gregory and saying McCourty was an all pro CB. I was begging for free agent $$ to be spent on Golston or Webb and for Smith to be drafted, and you could only insult me, say I spelled Golston's name incorrectly, and say how could I even question the greatest GM in the history of the NFL, offering no viable comeback as usual...
Were you wrong yet again...but thats no surprise
I have no idea what you're talking about whatsoever. Webb was 1st rd pick value and huge money on the table. NO THANKS. That's why he didn't get traded. Only a VERY DUMB team would sacrifice a 1st rd pick with a rookie cap AND pay through the nose for the 2011 trendy CB of the year.
That was a ridiculous idea.
I was all for bringing in Goldson. They couldn't get together on the money, apparently/it wasn't enough for him to move.
McCourty looks pretty good to me at Safety. No complaints from me there.
Learn to balance a checkbook before attempting to talk down to me, too. You and your buddies think there is no cap, salaries don't matter, etc. SF best win the SB this weekend, because Goldson's high salary, as he used NE to up his price in SF, will have Goldson playing elsewhere next year.
Only you would blame BB for drafting Jones and Hightower, and just because he didn't have MORE picks to suit your desires, he doesn't get Harrison Smith, and you're life as a fan is ruined.
GROW UP, kid.
you scoffed at the Golston thought, yet I believe he ended up signing for less than Gregory did.
drafting Jones, Smith, LB rather than Jones, Hightower, Wilson would ahve addressed the Pats needs
I would have also drafted Jones, traded the 2nd #1 for Webb.
