Gay is the worst corner on the team. Keenan Lewis definitely took his spot. He's been horrible ever since Brady burned him for 4 TD's last year. He's had an okay time up until last week. He was horrible. He is quick and he makes his tackles, but his coverage ability is seriously lacking. We need to draft a CB, and draft more OL's. Come on now Colbert. Gilbert and Pouncey was a good start, but we need to do more.

I agree with some of that. But to say there are plenty of teams that would jump at the opportunity to take our CBs is a stretch. Remember this is a DB group with ZERO turnovers. I'll take a wild guess and say that's the worst in the league. They are also product of a pressure based system which helps them out tremendously.

Taylor is good. Gay is "okay" if he's in the slot with a slow receiver who's not taller than him. He isn't "better than most DBs in the league." Lewis doesn't look like anything spectacular. Allen is just another body right now and hasn't had the opportunity to show anything.

Beats all the undrafted bodies in the Patriots secondary... :p

And I'd assume that most solid secondaries are the product of a front seven that consistently gets pressure on the quarterback. The Steelers haven't been able to do that as well as past years so that's why the turnovers aren't coming.

I personally think he's fine and won't complain if he gets resigned next year.
