We need to find a free safety who has ball skills/range/instincts....essentially a Darren Sharper. There aren't many of them and when you find them you keep them. Is there anyone in the draft of note?
I am not up with my college safeties yet so forgive me. The only Free agent out there that embodies all that you speak of is Dashon Golston! If your gonna spend money, smart money spent is on him!!!

Re: Trade ______ for _________!!!!

As far as INTs go, Harper was robbed out of one in the earlier game against the Bucs.

I don't think safeties should be evaluated based on the amount of INTs they have, especially SSs. Nor do I think INTs are the determining factor when evaluating the play of CBs either, but they usually are momentum changing plays, and therefore, highly memorable to the fan and that is why their perceived value gets blown sky high.

But the bottom line is that the safeties have been missing far too many tackles this season, as have other positions as well, and that is just unacceptable. The half-assed tackle attempt Harper made against the Bucs' receiver early in last game, where he just collapsed at his feet trying to knock him down at the sideline, had me screaming at the TV. Those type of lapses in the fundamentals of the game are unacceptable no matter what you are being paid.
