Cromartie!!!!!

I don't care about Nnamdi, I know better. But I would like us to clear some of the dead weight and make a play on Cromartie now.

I think we have great corners, but we get picked on because of our height. You saw it in Cinnci, and in Seattle. Were also injury prone so we can never have enough.

Cromartie although a handful went threw the fire in New York with teams throwing away from Revis and he's a ball hawk take a stab.

We havn't the money for this. IMO we are not as deep at our CB position as most people think, but I don't think we go after Cromartie.

Nnamdi will sign somewhere for an outrageous amount, which in turn will make Cromartie get slightly less outrageous amount.

No way we can afford him...

I think CB we are fine.... We have depth. Porter, Greer, Robinson, Patrick, Torrance. Not to mention who ever else we get that's undrafted.

I would like to have Cromartie too, but its just not a area of need.

My biggest concern with them has always been that they are ALL 5' 11".
Not that they can't cover, it just looks like they are mugging a 6' 3" guy when the ball is thrown up for grabs. If a receiver has any hollywood skills at all, he could pick up cheap 1st downs/1st and goals on principle alone. Hard to find - I know. That's why we don't have a 6' 3" cover guy that can turn their hips and run like the wind. I'm not hard to please: I just want ONE. That's all, just ONE, a cheap ONE.

Revis is only 5'11 and is the best cover corner in the league. I know porter gets hurt alot, but Robinson is in the wings as is Patrick. Torrance is a good back up as well (had a key pick in the Steelers game) . We have depth, the only thing to do is straight up and replace him, which the saints are not going to do.

CROMARTIE IS 6, 2 you tell me who we have that is that! Depth is fine if you are getting to the qb, we didn't in the last part of last year. And we were exposed for being to damn short at the back end. It's not that they can't make those plays I expect that we would get someone to assist on some of the taller wide outs thats all.

THIS YEAR MIGHT BE FAR WORSE THAN OTHERS

GREG JENNINGS
CALVIN JOHNSON
ANDRE JOHNSON
MIKE - SIMMS WALKER ( signed with the rams )

AND THATS BEFORE YOU GET TO RODDY "PUSH OFF" WHITE AND THE PREDATOR JULIO JONES

MIKE WILLIAMS you need me to keep going!!!

Did you see Porter and Greer vs Ocho and T.O. it looked like to grown men vs two midgets we are gonna get roasted if we don't get a little taller on that back end!!!

Revis is only 5'11!!!!!! The best CB in the game today.

Tall does NOT make you good. Cromarte got picked on all last year on the jets, yes he is good, but he is no better the Greer. There is a reason the jets tried to get another CB....and it was not because of money.

Now
Antoine Winfield (5'9)
Brent Grimes (5'10)
Johnathan Joseph (5'11)
Asante Samuel (5'10)
Terence Newman (5'10)
Mike Jenkins (5'10)
Ronde Barber (5'9)
Cortland Finnegan (5'10)
Marcus Trufant (5'11)

The list goes on

Go do your Homework.
