Is Conte just a below average safety?

    this is going to be an ugly game, IMO. Drew Brees is one of the best. Going up agsinst him with no pass rush is going to be ugly. I want to be so wrong about that, but I just can't see it any other way.

    BearsinHouston, you are just being objective and reasonable in your assessment. I would be STUNNED if we actually win this game. I expect Brees to pretty much move the ball on will at us, much like what Manning just did to the Eagles last week.

    I think he's outstanding in coverage and poor near the LOS. I'll take him as a pure FS any day in the day of high-flying offense, but you have to be able to step up and battle in the trenches.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him personally but how good of shape is he in is my question plus do we have the cap room for him?

    Shit like this makes us all dumber for having read it. For fuck's sake, at least know how to spell "tutu" in your lame, homophobic efforts at comedy.

    How many FSs' do you see solo tackle AP successfully?

    I think that bringing Conte up to the line of scrimmage is playing to his weakness rather than his strengths.

    BMG,

    Just curious where this comment came from? Do you have a link to the article, I would like to read it. I think Conte and Wright are both actually pretty good safeties. I would say we have a good pair there for the first time in a LONG time. The problem to me as well is from the lack of pressure up front.

    I personally thought our Safety's were average before the draft, I don't think they suck, but I don't look at them as good either, they're just out there part of the team and nothing special.

    ^^This^^

    Most fans took it as a given that we would have growing pains while anything special here & there was just a bonus till they mature.

    Talking about any short comings like falling for pump fakes, etc. were just things that were going to be agonizing/infuriating during the process.

    Tell us something we didn't know...
