To me he is too talented to be on the bench.He is much more athletic than Naka


I think he played his college ball at Buffalo and was drafted by Dallas. He was advertised as "RAW" but they had immediate CB needs. He was not ready then, and he was not ready when we picked him up. He is now. Plain and simple. I noticed that he is in the game but I rarely see balls going his way. The goal line play was very impressive, not because the announcers said so, but I was happy to see him getting his due. As a safety, I have no idea. I like him at CB so far. However, you are right--we need our best players on the field.

Was very impressed that we were playing aggressive at the safety spot. Martin was better, Godfrey looked more into the game. They are not the kind of players who play deep well. I think we need a smart FS who can QB the secondary-but the defense is doing well.

Good comment though. He needs to be on the field.

I really liked what I saw when I went to training camp. He seems to be a very serviceable backup for us and is a good type to have step in. He has a lot of that tenaciousness I like in a secondary guy.

It appeared to me he was used more in passing situation.I know Naka is giving it his all but does not have the physical attributes for the NFL.

Yup. Played better too. A couple plays I seen that if Naka was in on it, he would've been burned for it. I can't understand how your the deepest man in the backfield and compared to all 31 FS in the league and receivers still get behind you on a consistent basis

Two reasons to Extend Gamble. One, he is still a starting caliber CB. Two, he is veteran leadership for a yourng secondary.



The cost to extend Gamble is really the relevant question.I think he counts close to 9 million against our cap in 2013.I am not sure how to restructure his contract to make everyone happy.

My hope is we have hit two home runs with the Josh twins.Thomas will have plenty of reps the remainder of the year and I am pulling for him.

I like Josh Thomas. I like his physicality. He just needs to learn how to cover NFL receivers.

You have no idea what category you just put yourself in--it was a compliment on this end, however!

If you restructure Gamble you can lower his salary. Which would help the cap. If he is not willing to do so, there are options. IMO, extend him, lower his cap hit, and keep him a couple more years. Gamble with the Josh twins would help us until we can reload in a couple of years.

You really need 3 quality CBs. Which means if Gamble can restructure, we are better.
