You need 1 who doesn't have a 73.6 completion rate against him.

Go back and watch how Rex Ryan beat Brady in the playoffs a couple of years ago. Shutdown corners change games. They will always be needed.

We're in a division with a plethora of good talent at QB and WR.

Yeah, we need some help at CB. Imagine if Gamble got hurt...

Brady has more weapons now. More mismatches. All NE needs is one guy to run the vertical and they are sick.

I listened to Colin as well and I thought he was talking BS........especially with the example of the Jets and Philly with their CB's...........

Should we say the same about LT's seen as Jake Long and Joe Thomas both play for crappy teams. The one constant for the most part about being a good team is to have a good QB. The defenses of the Superbowll in 2011 were ranked 1 and 2 I believe...this superbowl the defenses of both teams werent ranked all too high. People like to change their opinions of what is needed to succeed based on who is winning at the time.

Mike Vick is a great QB.

In a pass happy league- of course I want a shutdown corner. Good DL play will also help, but why no effectively erase the best WR from the opposing team's gameplan?

There is a reason that CBs are getting paid more and more.

I don't think you need a "shut down corner" because a good pass rush can make a mediocre secondary look great. The Giants are a good example of that. In this new pass-happy NFL, the pass rush is even more important than who is covering who because a good QB can beat a good secondary, but he can't beat you if he has guys in his face all game.

You can get away with inferior play anywhere if you can dominate the trenches.

QB, WR, LT, TE, DE, DT

The six most important positions imo
