Im in agreement greer and porter are great. but they are short. I just keep seeing Owens and Chad Johnson it looked like two giants versus to midgets.

Darrell Revis is also short. When people talk about him, his lack of size is not the first thing they mention. Height (6'1" or 6'2") is nice for a CB, but I seem to remember a CB we had several seasons ago named Michael Hawthorne. He was 6'4". Great. But he couldn't cover. I'd rather have a 5'10" guy that can cover, than a 6'2" player that can't.

Sean Payton has always looked to upgrade his corners......from the moment he got here that was his top priority after QB.

Tampa Bay is going to have a very scary defense. I cannot believe they got both Adrian Clayborne and Da'Quan Bowers. Scary. But having said that, our defense will still be better than theirs because of our fantastic DC. And picking up Martez Wilson in the third round was just incredible.

The way to beat Tampa is by having a very strong inside running game. Always was, and now with PT, Ivory and Ingram we just may have it again like we did when we had Deuce killing them every game.

Guys we look good on Paper but Buc's D will faster, stronger and well coached, not to mention having a Head Coach that was a Defensive Coach, He know how to take what he got and make it do what it need to do..
Lets hope Gregg Williams wants it again.
