    What do you think????????????????????????

    For the dollars and cents of it, and unfortunately this is what it all boils down to, I think with Ferguson and Middlebrooks (switching to safety) we would be fine. I base my opinion on the financial committment made to Lynch, not because I think KK isn't talented, only so much you can do. The big hit is fine as a deterrent, but there were many instances where the ball was tipped and the safety could have made the pick if he weren't so fixated on tattooing the receiver, keep one eye on the prize safeties, we need the ball.

    It would be folly to keep both Kennedy and Lynch considering their similarities. This is a money issue. I agree with Lava in that we would be better off developing a player like Middlebrooks at the position or in my opinion, taking a chance with a mid-round pick. Kenoy is a proven player who will expect to get paid more than we want to pay him. We are already doing that with Lynch for the forseeable future (2 years). Except, John Lynch has great leadership quality as a league veteran. We just can't keep them both.

    Let Kennedy walk, let Lynch play out his contract at SS, being replaced with Ferguson on passing downs. Move Herndon or Middlebrooks (who played awesome this year) to FS. Walls is a very good CB when he's healthy. Alexander/LeSeur/Shaote give us depth in the nickel/dime roles, along with Chris Young at safety.

    Problem solved.

    Herndon brings good cover skills and great tackling ability versus the run to the Free Safety position. Its quite common to move corners over to safety and see success. In our case, this would also be economical and doable with the players currrently on the roster. But, our coaches are so bad with personnel, the thought probally never occured to them, they would rather overpay for some mediocre player as usual most likely.
    I think Middlebrooks SHOULD be a safety, he isnt good as a CB he has no quickness. Walls and Herndon are good CB's for #2 and 3. Chris Young is probably our safety of the future, he looked real solid in preseason, so once Lynch retires I'd expect to see Young starting. Herndon wont be a free safety. If Sam Brandon is still around, i think he could emerge as a godo FS cause of his size and speed, he just needs to get the mental part of his game down.

    I can't understand why Shanny would let Kenoy go for any other reason than money. Ferguson has been warming the bench this whole season if Kenoy does go, we will then have to sit and watch Ferguson adjust back to the speed of the game, i know he is a saftey but he will also have to adjust to the rule changes. If a guy who relies on crushing tackles to bring players down and he makes 90 tackles in a season 3rd on the team i think im gonna take the guy who makes the receivers fear going across the middle and with the help of Lynch he can flurish into a great saftey.

    From what I remember of KK , watching him get beat deep on more than one occasion. The most recent was the first game in INDY this year on their second score. Had he tried to TACKLE the WR instead of hit him out of bounds, the score would not have happened.

    He relies on crushing hits to bring down runners opposed to tackling them. He has cost us lots of extra yards and several scores. After they bounced away and kept on truckin.

    Unless he'll work for minor money, let him walk and try to draft a FS in th 2 or 5 fifth round. Rookies are always better values.

    Lynch gets paid an awful lot to ride the bench for 2 years. With that logic, trade him for a mid-round pick and retain Kenoy....then there's the cap hit!
    No one would trade anything for Lynch! You cant just magicly draft a decent SS! I guess it all comes down to what kind of cash Kenoy wants...if he is looking for crazy numbers let him walk.






    BTW...let this thread die i am starting a new one with a poll!! this is becoming a serious topic here.

    or
    Keep Lynch as a starter along with Ferguson, let Kenoy go and draft one mid round for 2 years from now.

    That would work well, it is nice to see someone (other than me) was able to get over the spin move.

    As much as I enjoy watching Kennedy for his hitting prowess, keeping him is not practical. We already have Lynch inked to a multi-year deal, like it or not. I have to believe that we need a Safety with coverage skills. Anyone disagree? 2 Linebackers in the secondary are 1 too many.

    Personally, i'm tired of big devastating hits, I don't mind them here and there, but I would much rather have a playmaker, rather that a heavy hitter.
    u are tired of those hits yet you are glorifying one in your sig?


    anyway...Kenoy has played great this year...lock Kenoy up or we'll regret it!

    If you people are saying Shanny should cut Kenoy because he was getting burned, i guess Champ will be cut aswell, LOL u idiots Kenoy got burned by Reggie Wayne once in that game, I think the whole of the USA saw Champ on national television get burned 3 times in the one game by Chad Johnson not to mention Champ getting burned again by Joey Porter on sunday night football,in both games where we should have won, Cincy and The Raiders, not to mention the Radiers who were playing away from home and in the snow, Im not bashing Champ im just saying even the best make mistakes. Kenoy must stay!
    we need help on our d line then maybe we wont have to blitz lynch every time to get penetration i love kennedy but letting him to go to maybe lockup reggie might be a good move

    Tough decision, but I say let him go. Lynch's signing makes it very difficult to keep Kennedy when we have a high quality safety (Furgeson) sitting on the bench. Put in The Train Wreck and watch him tear it up like he did for us last year.

    Why must he stay?

    Tell me what he has done besides gotten into trouble with the media about his big cheap hits...

    Kenoy hasn't done anything more than what any other safety can do.
