    That works.

  2. I thought it was meant to imply that, unlike a regular door, he can't keep much of anything from getting past him.

    In any case, I really was kind of puzzled when we got him, because (apparently unlike some of you here) I had not really heard much of anything about him that would stand out. If it was to be an upgrade at all, it wasn't that much of one.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    It was a huge upgrade at Nickel, the slot has been an Achilles heel for us. He is one of the best slot corner in the game. However, if we use him primarily at the slot he will be a very expensive nickel corner, so I am sure that is why he is playing on the outside quite a bit.

    Maybe it is a reference to someone breaking into our house, and a screen door just lets 'em in. We need our DBs to be metal doors with bars, dead bolt locks, and an alarm.

    Maybe a screen door looks like there's something there, but whenever you try and walk through it, you get hit in the nose?

    That is a glass door, and I do not believe the OP was making a reference to Munnerlyn hitting anyone in the nose.

    I agree.

    Munnerlyn had a good reputation as a nickel/slot cornerback. He is not as good on the outside though, but the Vikings are paying him too much to be a part time player, so he moves outside when the Vikings are not in a nickel package.

    Right now he is our second best CB so he should move out there. Hopefully we will address that position in the draft this year.

    Corners take two or three years to prime up. Are there any good cornerbacks in free agency this year? It would be costly, but cornerbacks make a huge difference.

    Three at the top of the list that I would try to pursue are:

    Darrell Revis- NE- He signed a one year deal.
    Antonio Cromartie - ARI
    Tramon Williams - GB
