Solid secondary players (no stars, except SMOOOOOOOOOOOOT) + good coaching/cover D's = wins

(take a look at Tampa's coverage)

Just my take.

If we can get a great line that will cause pressure it will be worth it also we will most likely sign Shawn Springs

Have any of you seen a Broncos game Portis is a monster, he has tourching speed and, unlike Trung he knows how to use it plus he rearly fumbles. This is great deal for us because we get results now this guy is not a back up with potiential. He is the focal point of the Denver offense. Awsome pick up and great deal because we can resolve his contract after we pick up everyone else we want or need in the FA

Be careful about thinking that you can pick up all the FAs you want/need and then re-doing Portis' deal. What he wants is a monstrous signing bonus so even if you make it a long deal, there will be a cap hit even in the first year when he takes a minimum salary.

If the Redskins make the trade, they will have cap room to play with, but they need to deal with Portis and save some room for him. If not, they risk having an unhappy player next year - not part of the Joe Gibbs formula - or having to cut other players to make room for his contract at the last minute.

LaMont Jordan hasn't shown the potential to be anything other than a short-yardage back. I think the Jets know they can do without him, and are hoping his Maryland pedigree will be a selling point for us. Portis may have his faults, but they don't lie within his on-field performance or his potential - Jordan's faults do.

Don't be so sure we won't have the Jets first rounder, anyway. I see them as prime candidates for a trade-up scenario. If they don't make waves in free agency (and they probably won't), Bradway will need to make a big pick to save his skin...again. (And trading up for DeWayne Robertson worked so well last time!) If we decide to trade down, the Jets will be listening.
There's nowhere to go but up. Or down. I guess we could stay where we are, too.

Fred Smoot, Shawn Springs, and possibly Sean Taylor is hardly no secondary.
