All I know is that they were a better secondary when he was in the lineup.

Yep... Regardless of the fact he can be a total knucklehead he definitely improved that defensive backfield.

QUOTE(#6):

No question that the secondary improved significantly when he started playing and when he went out with the injured leg in the AFC Championship game it was right back to square one.

He was good for you when he was playing, but he seems a bit brittle

He's not really that good, Go look at his over all career numbers, and not just the last few weeks in New England!
Or Ask any of the Giants WR's!
