Ofcourse we need to sign Gay! We are so thin on cornerbacks. Lewis is a failure. And for Butler, I think he'll see some time in the nickel and a few runs for McFadden. Also, I am going to predict Butler will play a safety position this year. All in all, Gay knows how our scheme works. He is a good short zone/blitz CB in the nickel and dime. Our rookie CB's need time to develop in the NFL and they'll probably be special team players for the entire year.

Every time I see a big play happen, I look for 22... It's almost a given that he is on the other end of it somewhere. I can't stand to watch him play.

hes a decent nickel/dime back. he doesnt have much in the way of range, but against today's offenses we need more than 2 capable db's. as long as he was signed cheap i think its a good depth move. with that said i hope crezdon butler or one of our young corners can bump him down the list

If he is trying to cover an outside WR, yes, he gets burnt. But he shouldn't
even be playing the outside WR. He is a nickel and dime, inside slot
CB. In that role, he is not that bad as all of you seem to think. Many of
you think he sucks b/c he was forced to play B-Mac's spot, because
Mac was injured. How many times last year did you look up and see 22
playing when he didn't start? B-Mac would make a go at it and his hip
was too jacked, hence 22 would be in the game, trying to play out of
position. If he can just play nickel I think he does fine.

Gay's actually not that bad, so long as he's not an every down corner. He makes as many big plays as he allows, but people only seem to remember the blown coverages. He knows the system, and at some point the light might go on for him. I'm kind of astounded that it was only a one-year deal.

Keenan Lewis can beat him out for nickle. I hope Lewis shows up big time. Gay doesn't make a bad dimeback. Can't wait to see the young guys like butler, brown, and allen battle it out for spots tho. thats where we're going to find our future starters. But I hear Keenan Lewis has been pretty impressive while practicing with the 1st team during Ike's absence. id rather have a core of 4 decent cb's than 1 standout and weak nickle and dime cb's.

Other teams didn't even have an intrest in Taylor.
Come on...The only knock on Ike is his hands..He is a cover corner...

Gay is fine..Not great, but fine...Not sure how you could pick him out when Farrior is 10 yards off every back or TE he covers and Mcfadden and Clark are not much better.
