Do people here really want DRC on a 5 year deal? Way too long for an OK corner IMO
This is football, not baseball, remember????? It doesnt need to mean he's here for the full term. How many players in the league are cut before their full term of the contract expires? All the time, even when they are still performing well.
Plenty of people were criticizing the CB situation before the injuries.
Exactly. Yet we get criticized because apparently its not fair to expect Idzik to foresee these injuries. But thats ridiculous because:
1. Our cornerbacks sucked even before the injuries. Any outside observer could see it from a mile away. Best case scenario is our pass defense is below average. Come on, Millner (good but injury prone, extremely inconsistent) Patterson, (a career journeyman with maybe a career high of 3 consecutive games played) and Mcdougle, (a 3rd round draft pick who missed just about his entire last season in college) is a laughable group. Opposing WR's are probably still laughing a t this. Its the equivalent of going into a season with your wide receivers as Holmes, Gates, Kerley, Hill. You can see from a mile away thats a terrible group, and what do you know, its our biggest weakness last year.
2. What do you know, 3 already injury prone players get injured. Who would have ever guessed?
