leave. My point is simply that I agree with BB's apparent philosophy
that no single "great" player is worth limiting our ability to sign
several "good" players, who can be coached to play very well, and win,
as a team. I think the team's play following the loss of Milloy, who I
was very sorry to lose, provides support for that philosophy.
***** As for Ty's likely contribution to this particular game, remember
that 8 of the 20 Miami completions, and 102 of the 230 receiving yards,
were by McMichael. When was the last time that Ty covered a TE?
***** The coverage I saw by Poole, Samuel, and Wilson, was very good.
But I will acknowledge that we got some help from the erractic arm of
Jake Fiedler. He missed at least 4 or 5 open receivers during the
course of the game.
***** Over the course of the season, there is absolutely no doubt that
our pass D is *much* stronger with Ty Law on a corner. But I'm
confident that Romeo and BB could, if need be, field a winning defense
without him. If we can re-sign him without crippling our player
personnel flexibility due to cap strain, I am 100% behind that. But,
when BB and Pioli decide where that financial line should be drawn, I
will fully support whatever decision they make with regard to Ty Law,
or any other player, just as I did with Milloy.
