    So everyone that has issues with me considering Carrol a JAG disagrees? Most would consider him at best a serviceable CB which is the definition of a JAG.

    Seriously, though. I think most of the reason people don't like Nola Carroll is because they remember Bradley Fletcher getting burned badly, they hear PHI fans saying 'good riddance,' and they assume they are the same people.

    Add "progress stopper". Used whenever a fan likes player A, but the coaching staff has decided on player B.

    Annoys the hell out of me.

    Fletcher is a train wreck and it is not surprising he is not on an NFL roster.

    I disagree that he got embarrassed here, if that's what you're asking. Dez came back strong on the ball in what was otherwise fairly decent coverage. We've seen Dez do that dozens of times.

    I consider Carroll a cut-rate Brandon Carr. And Carr was a cut-rate premium CB himself. But for an affordable boundary CB who plays both zone and man passably well, and a guy who can fill in in the slot and has a little size to him, Carroll was a decent and inexpensive piece in a secondary that needed some decent inexpensive pieces. I see nothing to complain about whatsoever in signings like this.

    I am OK with him being depth on the roster but do not see him as a starter.

    I'm not worried about the offensive line. if Collins is healthy we'll be fine at LG. I think everyone suspected we needed an upgrade at RT, or at least younger and more athletic...

    Ah. Me, either. I'm assuming he's a guy who comes in on 3rd downs, moves Scandrick into the slot, and we let him handle the outside coverage. And maybe a guy who gets some snaps in the slot himself if we want the DBs on the field but want a guy with a bit of size inside. Or an injury replacement CB.

    We definitely need to draft a better long-term option fairly early on.

    I like Jags. Oh, wait, I meant Cougars. Never mind.

    So were the guys we lost. Carr, Wilcox, and Church have always been jags. Claiborne had the ability to be more than that, but he never showed it on a consistent basis.
