    Well I get the Heath thing. But bottom line there were several safeties in the NFL who played worse than what this kid did. Given his pedigree or lack there of, I thought the kid did about as well as could be expected. He does have some physical skills. Given some more seasoning he may not be the train-wreck that several think that he is now... but like I say, there are several safeties that graded out worse than Jeff Heath.

    Nothing to do with quality of play, just duration...

    True, but we all knew that going in.
    The line of reasoning was hopefully he has the talent to start quickly and give the team a couple good years of good play.

    So far- things are going as planned...

    Honestly- from reports it sounds like he really wants to excel.
    He has physical ability. He needs lots of seasoning and it appears he's trying as hard as he can to learn and improve.
    I don't think he'll ever be a world-beater, but he just could be a productive player with his want-to.

    We'll see.

    Leary I think can give us about 3-4 more years before his knee probably goes or starts getting to the point where he cannot move well anymore. But he will have to get better then he was this year to be a good starter.

    Leary made a real nice jump from his first year to his second. Let's see if he has another jump in his third year.

    It is also a reminder that there are solid pieces out there on practice squads. I believe Leary could have been taken last year. Same with Dwayne Harris a few years ago. Not stars but solid starters or backups.

    Geez, Heath wasn't THAT bad. We also hear a whole lot about how Leary's knee is going to spontaneously combust, but he's been pretty healthy so far.

    From what I understand, Leary's condition is not degenerative. It may hold for 10 years, but if he gets hit the wrong way just once, his career could be over. I guess that makes him just like anyone else that plays football.
