    When you compare CB corps in our division, there are some pretty impressive groups, and we are solidly in the basement without question.

    Cleveland: Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert, Pierre Desir, Buster Skrine, Isaiah Trufant
    Cincinnati: Leon Hall, Darqueze Dennard, Dre Kirkpatrick, Terence Newman, Adam Jones
    Baltimore: Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown, Asa Jackson, Dominique Franks
    Pittsburgh: Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen, William Gay, Brice McCain, Antwon Blake


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    That Cincy group looks star studded, but theyve never really been that good for (now) 5 first round picks. Even when it was Hall and Joseph

    All those teams are sad at safety tho....Matt Elam having the most potential, but the next best AFC north safety would be who? Reggie Williams? Donte Whitner?

    The hope is, that both Ike and Tez Allen can emerge as just dependable starters. I'm sure they realize that Ike shadowing anybody all over the field, is a fleeting dream. Now, if he can stay heathy, hopefully he'll be able to settle in and not give up the long ball, keep the play in front of him.

    With Allen, I think the ship has sailed on him in terms of being anything near a prime Ike. If HE can stay healthy, I hope he can be a Chad Scott-level guy.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    James C Wexell -

    Trust me, Terence Garvin's job is not in jeopardy. I have him as their No. 6 LB overall.
