Yeah, I thought Lowry just barely edged out Manual for worst.

Okay counselor, how about this: Which player was worse between Calvin Lowry and Niko Koutavides?

Voted for Manuel, simply because the ****er somehow managed to stay on the field for so damn long.

I chose Fox because he couldn't beat the other guys out.

They were all horrible. I just hope for once since Atwater left that we can have two playing instead of one or none.

All of the above.


Barrett gets a pass, but they still all sucked badly.

Yup, I ended up going with Manuel because there was reason to expect him to be better than Lowry, plus Lowry had one decent game (his first).

Josh Barrett really didn't play well at all last year. He got absolutely ownd against San Diego. Just because he's young doesn't make him good.

I chose Lowry, I would have chosen Manual, but at least he could make the occasional tackle.

Barrett had his moments, though. Against KC in Denver, he did a nice job on Gonzalez. Barrett is a decent developmental prospect.

He was pretty good against the Jets too ... although Favre kinda sucked that day.


How do Josh Barrett and Darcel McBath sound as a long-term safety tandem?

I might trust Barrett as an in the box SS, but his hips just aren't good enough to really trust him in coverage. He has obviously good straight line speed, but that doesn't mean much for a safety.

Based entirely on the personal anger I felt, I have to go with Manuel.
