Re: Springs Placed on IR, Rumph Released

I was hoping Rumph would prove to be at least serviceable as a #3 corner so we could salvage something for Taylor Jacobs, but it apears they both turned out to be less than expected. Rumph a wasted #1, Jacobs a wasted #2.
A revolution is coming and it will be televised.

Unfortunately, Cornerbacks are hard to what ever team gets him is going to overpay.

I still think Springs(when Healthy) is a better corner.

Btw, Like someone said earlier, It's stupid to move our best corner to safety.
First, Springs hasnt lost a step. Woodson and Vincent moved to safety when they couldn't cover fast WR's. Springs is still our fastest corner.

Second, He is a little too fragile for corner, What makes you think he can play the more physical safety spot? Taylor is our FS, Springs would have to be our SS. He would have to play near the line of scrimmage and take on alot of blocks. No way he can take that pounding.
I'm with you...it just does not make since to move Springs. Even if Clements turns out to be OK you would still have Rogers on the other side of the field and that is the problem this year. The only time that I could half way breath when our D is on the field is when Springs was playing corner.

It would make more since to use Clements and Springs at starting corners and use Rogers in our nickle and dime packages...then...if the injury bug continues to bite Springs at least Rogers would be a more reliable starter than the back-ups that we have now .

Thank god it wasn't ours!

This Springs news is not good. We are in deep do-do if we are putting our best corner at safety. I mean, who the hell is going to play across the perennial pro-bowler Carlos Rogers?

Really???? Where did u hear this? Or are u joking?
