    Asante Samuels FA Trade

    What does Samuels going somewhere besides the Pats mean for EHIII's career - any speculation?

    Re: Asante Samuels FA Trade

    I bet he becomes the number 1 corner on the team and in the league and has a great career in the NFL and becomes a hall of famer!

    first, it is asante samuel. second, i think the pats will get a shutdown corner from FA, trade, or the draft and ellis will be their number 1 next year.

    Ellis was perfect for a #2 or #3 cb. Now that samuel is gone if ellis has to be a #1 he is in trouble. He is just too short to be matching up with some of the bigger wideouts a la burress in the super bowl on the final td.

    The Pats did sign Webster, a former Buffalo Bill that only played one game last year due to injury.

    kinda true.. but he was hurt durin that game and most of last season..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    The issue on the last play of the superbowl had nothing to do with Ellis' size. He could be the biggest corner in the league and still been burned - he was playing the post and the route was a flag.

    bigred - what darn difference does it make? You think he is going to come on here and have his frickin' feelings hurt because I typed samuels instead of samuel? Please.

    Re: Asante Samuels FA Trade

    I will type slowly so you can follow along:

    It is a message board, not a serious mode of communication if I were wiriting an article, business email, or something I gave two strokes about I would check on it. But I do not care if his name is Samuel, Samuels or what ever.

    The point was carried - I don't think anyone who sees the original post is thinking to themselves - I wonder who that guy Samuels is.

    Ellis didnt get burned on that final td because plax was taller, it was because plax ran a good route and hobbs tried jumping it. that said, he will never win a jump ball against a 6-5 reciever either.

    ok i will keep on spelin and you keep on presuming perfeksion on comunicating.

    By the way, I have looked into some of your posts on other threads, and I suggest you exercise extreme caution whilst being critical of how others type in their posts.

    Re: Asante Samuels FA Trade

    It will probably help him because opposing teams won't throw at him as much if there isn't a shutdown corner on the other side. So he probably will have better stats overall.
