[quote=JUST-PLAIN-NASTY]I was for it too. We pretty much are forced to do something now. Gay, Burnett, Lewis "may" become Pro Bowl players sometime in the future...But we don't have a crystal ball. What we do know based upon 2009....We need a capable starter brought in as insurance.[/quote:52i3sh2i]Originally Posted by Oviedo
I will still contend that Burnett will turn out to be very good. I saw too much of him to think any problems last year were anything more than a rookie adjusting to the NFL and probably an overly complicated defense. I always wasn't sure about Lewis and haven't seen anything to change my mind. He may, as some have suggested, be a better Safety down the road.
Last season, I think Gay was just like a boxer who got his bell rung early in a round and never got himself composed after that before getting knocked out. I blame that somewhat on the coaches who should have pulled him or made adjustments schematically before things snowballed and helped rebuild his confidence. Hopefully, he can recover.
