  • I suspect we're at the crossroads with the Giants secondary with this game.

    If Hosley holds it down and the secondary does well.. I think it's gonna be status quo during the offseason. Reese will like what he's seen from Amukamara and Hosley and probably see those as the two starting corners of our future.

    On the flip side, if its a long day for us and the secondary proves they can't stop the pass worth a damn, I think there will be much done. Obviously, Prince and Hosley have been drafted in 2011 and 2012 respectively, but I could see Webster getting cut in the last year of his contract and Reese bringing in a FA veteran CB, and/or using another high draft pick on one.

    We'll go CB in the draft for sure either way.

    Between CWeb being inconsistent (and getting older now) and Princess not being able to stay on the field, we'll have no choice. Even if Hosley works out.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      we'll only get a good CB if we draft one in the first round.

        Is Web getting "old," or is he just playing with multiple injuries this year? I would be very very very careful before getting rid of Web -- he's been such a top flight CB for the past 5 years.

        And be very careful about NOT bringing Phillips back. I'm not ready to give up his starting job to a rookie (Hill) and another guy who could possibly be a 1-hit wonder in Brown.

          he's 30 that's old, besides he's slow and blows coverage. He was a good CB but now he's declining.

              No way they let CWeb go.......too valuable even if it's at Nickel corner next year......as we've seen recently you can never have too many healthy DB's.

                why is our back 7 constantly injured.....been this way throughout TC's tenure.
                they need to switch brands of bottled water or something.
                due to the fact that I am from the Woodstock generation ...

                    How you figure? CB is not deep this year, and with all these suspect secondaries around the league I doubt one will fall to us (I'm expecting a pick between 28-32)

                        i think Prince and Hosley will be starters but imo not together until the 2014 season. Webby will start next year which is a contract year i believe!

                        Terrill Thomas may figure into the equasion only if healthy! he could be regelated to the #4 anyway!

                        besides Prince appears to be somewhat injury prone so Webby might be kept based on that fact!

                          Because you're proceeding under the fallacy that only a first round draft pick can be successful in the NFL.

                          CWeb is a second round pick. T2 was a second round pick. Hosley is a third round pick. Etc, etc ... And of course if the draft is perceived by our front office to be that weak and the need that strong there's always free agency. Any which way they go, I think CB will definitely be a position of concern (note: not outright need) going into 2013.

                          CWeb isn't going anywhere but between age and contract, this might be his last contract with us.

                            Webster was a 2nd round pick and so far Hosely has looked good and he was a 2nd round pick.

                              Looks to me that Webster is starting to decline and the fact that this is now very much a passing league we will have to go early for another CB to go along with Hosely and Prince (if he could only stay healthy), we absolutely must get another quality CB from somewhere and as always another pass rushing DE..
