This team already blew at corner. Corners who are FAs this late are either coming off injury or just suck. They will need a team to cut decent depth at CB. which is rare.
Yeah it's so dumb not to consider signing Reid. Just make it clear before signing him that he's expected to stand for the anthem. Worse case scenario he stands in the tunnel with DT and Marshall. Who cares!

As for CB, a lot of talk on sports radio in Phila that they may trade one of their CB's, most likely Ronald Darby, because they have so much depth there despite losing Patrick Robinson in FA. But, Darby won't come cheap.

Isn't Reid a box safety kind of player? I don't think they have been bringing in those guys.

It looked like the Chiefs O on a lot of Bears plays last night. Plays that had a lot of success versus this D.

Woods better have an answer in his scheme because it wasn't even close on some of the leaks out to the flat.

He's a good coverage safety for tight ends and running backs.

Nagy was toying with Radio at times, however it seems that the players figured it out and pure, raw talent trumped the morons on the sidelines.
Simmons is a boss. That was a great pick. Elway hit on that one.
And Walker is starting to shine. If Woods can just figure out how to get all those talented D linemen out on the field, the D could be lethal.

Also, something no one is talking about.
The O line. No penalties. Pretty good all night. Not perfect, but much improved.

Whats Mckenzies Fumble to TD ratio...He seems to fumble at least 4 times for every TD. But VJ loves him so he will remain our punt returner

Reid has been my favorite safety since his LSU days. The guy is all time and would be the best safety on our roster (not taking anything from Justin Simmons). Why heís unsigned is unreal. But heís not the only solid safety unsigned. They have a few other very good safeties unsigned.

We need another corner badly. We have relax on the backup QB but a nickel corner is a priority.

Elway should sign Reid. Good for the team and will silence the Krapernick lovers who are pissed at John for not signing their favorite loser

he doesn't seem to cover looking at his stats. i think teams are going away from those guys. that's why they are still available. he's a scheme fit for only some systems now.

Leary doesnít look 100% yet; missed a few assignments, couldnít get the second level in a few runs, and got pushed back once for a sack. Looked good as a unit though. Need to improve our run blocks getting to the linebackers, we were slow releasing and had a hard time engaging.

Yiadom has really surprised me. I didn’t think he would see much action as a rotational guy, and yet he looks suited to start in dime/nickel. And just as interesting, they’re asking him to work press man on some of the best receivers on field with minimal safety help. One of his pass interferences was bologna. He’s good.

No need to keep Booker. Hes mediocre at best. He has the same low football IQ as Lynch

Ball showed more as a rookie. Ball would've actually been pretty good had he not been an alcoholic. Booker is more like Lance Ball, as in he's a no-talent bum.

some players seem to feel that he may have a bigger future ahead of him than just being the #2 guy.

Why? Swags got this. It doesn't matter who he plays with and it doesn't matter how little he's played with them, he balls the F out no matter who it is. It's a TD.
Sutton, Patrick, Lindsey, whoever. Swags putting it on the money.

We know Swag got it. The FO has a different idea about it though. We will know their thoughts if they bring another in or not.

Well, if this is true and players are voicing their opinion that DEN doesn't need a vet, it bodes well for Kelly. It's a wasted roster spot and they can't afford it.
