I know this guy is gettin older at 31.. but i think he could give us 2 good years at least.. or he could just come in to add depth at to our weak secondary.. i honestly think he could start opposite of will allen... what do u guys think?

Deltha O'Neal is still in the league?

I say go for it, sign him up with Sam Madison, Vinny Testerverde and Rosevelt Colvin and we'll kickoff the 2008 season with the "2002 tribute team!".

whats funny is our secondary actually has alot of talent. We are stacked in the safety area, and at corner we have some nice players such as will allen, michael lehan, andre goodman, joey thomas, and nate jones

will allen is the only starting caliber corner

I've never thought Deltha was any good, and, if he was that good, teams woudl've kept him. That said...I think he'd beat out the present CBs...Ricvky Manning sure would.

"stacked" is a strong word for the safeties....they are ok, Bell has to stay healthy and you can probably get by with them.

The corners you mention as the poster above notes probably aren't worthy of starting spots in this league, but i guess a few of them have developmental potential that exceeds that of any of the has-beens on the market like Deltha O'Neal who was good about 5 years ago. I'd ride it out with the corners we have now, and draft or sign someone next season.

o i would take ricky manning jr in a heart beat.. but teams did keep him.. in his 10 years he played for 2 teams.. and he had 10 ints in 05

Ricky Manning Jr now there is a name!

He was good for about one game.....

Although he's one of Donovan McNabb's favorite targets.

I think were ok in the secondary for now unless a real legit player gets released. Not Deltha O'Niel.

Yeah but come on, these guys aren't even better than what we have. If they number 1 or 2 corners in this league they wouldn't be being cut. Guys like Bryant and O'Neal are just over the hill. It would be better for us to just stick it out with what we have.

I feel pretty strongly that Ricky Manning could help alot. ONEal is more marginal, I do agree there. He was always more sizzle than steak. Manning was a cut from the Bears on a Salary/Performance ratio on a good Defense. We'll overpay, that's granted, but, I think the guy outplays at LEAST nickle corner and, it's aposition of need.

These "name" guys who get cut seem like they would be good pick-ups because they are...well......"names". The fact is that they are cut for a reason. Maybe O'Neal would help us. Maybe not. This is one that we will have to trust the Trifecta on. They have access to WAY more info than we do. We have opinions. They have the facts.

I hope they take a look at O'Neal. I know he's not great but he has better ball hawking skills than anyone on our roster. I'm still not convinced that Lehan or Goodman can be counted on. Both have been battling injuries and neither of them should really be any more than a nickel corner.

Right,

and if guys like O'Neal and Bryant can't beat out ANY of 5 or 6 corners on their perspective teams, then how do people expect them to come in here and be at least a two behind Allen.

I've never thought Deltha was any good




GOON: deltha is 2 years out of puting up a 10 int season
for the bungles. never any good?

this cb thing of ours is going to come back and haunt the
trifecta. whoever the poster was who said will allen is the
ONLY starting calibr corner we have [and he is marginal]
was dead on!!

deltha o'neil should have been the first guy signed!

Why is it that all these fans continually get sucked in by "big names"? The younger guys can probably play ST better than the "names", and some of them at least, have the potential to get better. The old "big names" just have the potential to get slower! :shakeno:
