    Essex looked out of shape and we need another CB. Justice is back and should be getting the other guy back. So, good move.

    Can't be a good sign for Vontae's health.

    or Trai Essex's career's health.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Essex huh i would have kept him over duds and scrubs like Link and Olsen.

    who is better Darius Butler or Justin King? I saw Butler was drafted in the second round so I don't know if he was really bad or ok. This worries me a little bit about Vontae's health

    Butler uses his exceptional quickness to get further out of position than is possible for slower defensive backs. Maybe he can grasp a different scheme though. Didn't work out at all in NE.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Butler must really, really suck but I'd still rather have him playing corner in a pinch than an undrafted free agent safety. That obviously burnt us Sunday.

    Well, that and a terrible defensive scheme for the last play.

    Good teams find a way to win. Bad teams fine creative ways to lose..... Did you really think this coaching staff was going to be an improvement?
