I like the fact that they are looking and giving some new blood a chance to show who wants it. It creates great competion and makes your team better. Its kinda like how we "found" Willie Parker, James Harrison, etc......Lots of blue chippers don't pan out and its the diamonds in the rough that make a difference on a championship caliber team.

I said that way back when we signed him! No one believed me then. Behind Ike he was one of the better corners playing in the redskins gam IMO. Lewis, Gay, etc. got burned all night. I even remember Gay going in for one play in the 3rd quarter or so and got beat by a 3rd team reciever!

yeah he was a high cb prospect out of college that fell big time in the draft because he got injured before the combine and ran a 4.59 as a result (which is probably still faster than gay). he's healthy now, let's see what he can do

Oh no. You can't ever question anything that the front office or ownership
does! You aren't worthy. And you can't possibly identify any mistakes that
they made because they are perfect. It was smart to virtually ignore the
QB position since drafting Bradshaw until Ben. It was smart to give
Kordell a new contract when he had two years remaining on his old one
and was playing like the worst QB in the NFL. It was smart to draft Scott
Shields, Alonzo Jackson, Bruce Davis, Spaeth, Ricardo Colclough, Limas
Sweed, Jermain Stephens, Huey Richardson, et al. They are infallible. We
are not allowed to question anything they do because we are so inferior.
It is actually smart to make Ben a $100 million QB and that not ensure he
doesn't have even an average OL to protect him. Hell, it was smart to keep
a CB unit of Chad Scott and Dwayne Washington. They were really good.

Bullshit. Tony Hills is going to be an excellent RG, he is getting his chance and I have no doubt he will make the most of it. The Steelers will be fine at corner, we had bad corners last year and made the big dance.

People need to stop being melodramatic about these two positions.
