Once Gamble is Cut, Cornerback Becomes Our Biggest Need

see, I keep hearing that fallacy. Before last year, he'd missed a total of six games in four years. Let's not pretend he's Dan Morgan.

Not talking about his whole career. Just the past three years.

He missed five games in 10 and twelve in 12. Yes, he only missed one in 11, but it's a bad trend, especially at his current cap value.

I don't really see it as a trend. I see it as a guy who had one fairly bad injury - a shoulder, nothing catastrophic - and missed a couple games otherwise. And one way or another, he's not going to play at his current cap value.

We'll have to disagree on this one. I don't see 6 games over 2010-11 as "learning to live without him".

That's the bottom line of it.

Gamble has been hurt way too much to even matter the last two years. We do need to address CB in FA this year more than ever. We have young talent but it needs time to grow.

Names to keep an eye on at 14: Xavier Rhodes and Desmond Trufant. Both have been pegged as late first rounders but had monster combines today.
