    McCourty plays more snaps on defense then any player. This move is not an indictment of his ability. If anything it should force the question to all of us....Is Gregory going to come back? Is Chung going to come back? DMC, Dennard, T-Wilson and Talib are the 4 best players in the secondary if the starting safeties can't play. Get them all on the field.

    Step 1, move him to safety.  Step 2 cut him during his rookie contract is up and admit his bustedness.  We've seen this story before.




    Well it could be worse, at least he's not Wilson. McCourty has proved some stability on the field

    Safety position is strong in the Draft, this year.




    But, BB picking DB's isn't. I'm hoping BB sticks closer to both the lines again this year. That seems to be his strong suit and the further you get away from the lines the worse he tends to pick. Personally I'm hoping he goes OL, and interior DL this year. Maybe take a chance on DB's late (like with Dennard) but keep at it with the lines where he tends to be one of the best drafters in the game




     

    Funny thing Is thought # 32 was gonna be a very solid CB.  Everything I heard said he was better than his brother who went much later in the draft. Jason McCourty,, drafted one year earlier was a good Cb but never started, rather he was a jack of all trades his 1st couple years mostly playing slot on 3rd downs, etc. This offseason he was given a Huge contract comparable to those TOP cbs in the league and I was shocked. So a guy who has the same exact build and body type end up cashing in on huge payday from being a late draft pick and his twin brother who was better is now being moved to safety??  and you all think the coaches have NOTHING to do with this...lol

    Think about that. We used a 1st rounder on a decent free safety who is just gonna keep things from being outta control but wont start  making plays until he settles in maybe a year later. I think his hips are too stiff to turn and make plays and he is awful at jamming guys but the talent WAS there. Jason is not a shutdown CB by any means and just got beat yesterdat but he turned for the BALL, it was just a perfect pass. We sure do have some tough luck with our DBS man....  WOW

    God I hate the new quoting system.  One thing I learned in this last draft was to never underestimate or assume what BB is going to do with his picks.  I was blown away by Bill's decisions this draft and I am sure I will be again in the next draft.
