I actually think Dockery and Thomas played pretty damn well.


I agree. Our biggest problem is the nckel.

There are a lot of CBs in free agency. I think we sit back and grab one at the end of the week at a good deal to compete.

Thomas was a bit raw in college but a stud. Dallas drafted him because they needed immediate help--he was not ready, so they cut him. I think the fruit is ripe now. Same with Dockery--he was inconsistant in college. He needed to learn.

I'm appreciative of Gamble's contributions, but this move made perfect sense.

lol someone will DEFINITELY pick him up. he's a very talented corner and he's not even 30.


Strange, for some reason i thought he was 31. Yah def the top corner on the market. Maybe he ends up in Green Bay.

And those stat years mirrored his 2011 season.

If those are stats of a overrated CB then nobody knows how to grade a cornerback.

Those stats don't mean much for evaluating CB talent.

He was clearly a stud CB up until 2008 and not so much after that.

I predict he will be overpaid and under-perform.

Well, he's gone now. And nothing is changing that.

I just think we're making a big mistake. I know we have to because of money but, man... It seems like he's much older, but Gamble is only 29 years old. He's got a quality 5-7 years left at CB.

LMAO! If stats dont mean much what the hell else are we supposed to look at for players? Why the hell is there even a HOF? I predict you are terrible at predictions.

Yes. Frankly, I dunno how anyone could be convinced that he would stay.

Gamble was top 3 in completion % against in these last few years that he has 'underperformed.'

As long as you are using the right stats it is useful.

The ones posted earlier don't mean much.

But what is missing from that equation is what an utter joke our secondary became.

So the fact it was so tempting to throw at comically weak teammates....helps Gamble's numbers. We pretty much have had him out there with a cast that should be backups throughout the entire secondary.
