    I'm still surprised we've gone so far as to carry 6 Cornerbacks

    We're awfully thin there at the moment. Housh ain't what he once was. I think we kept too many LB's and DL's. We ran by big committees last season, but the injury situation is a lot different now. We'll see if we can put them on the PS soon.

    I would have kept a WR or tailback over some of the CBs. We have safeties, lots of them, to fill roles in the defensive secondary.
