Conte is not as bad as folks here like to believe, but in an ideal world he's not a guy you hand a job to, he's a guy you want to compete for a job- and hopefully lose. It's a deep safety market in FA though, and I expect us to bring someone else in to compete with him. Vacarro would be fine for that.

I just don't ****ing get it. I get he's a decent athlete and if we're a passing situation than sure he can be average. But how many times do we as a fanbase have to watch him get run the **** over or take a terrible angle on a ball carrier and see a 5-10yd play turn into a 20+yd game breaking play?

It's god damn insulting having to watch Chris Conte continue to get on the field as a starter. If I was an opposing offense I'd scheme running plays directly at him all game and draw it up to block everyone but him.


You know it, I know it, the damn board knows it (although some won't admit it) etc...

The only folks who seemingly don't know it are Licht, DK and Smith...

How he survived Mike Smith coming in baffles the **** out of me...


I thought for sure that Bradley McDougald would win the battle of “the surviving safety”, but nope. I just don’t see what Koetter or Mike Smith see in this guy.

Definitely a frustrating move last year for me, could have brought back McDougald for cheap and spent that 2nd round pick on Hunt or Kamara, but instead had to draft a safety to replace McDougald... at least Evans looks like a player though

Conte isn't nearly as bad as people make him seem and has single handedly saved/won us games with big plays before, people just forget that. The thing I never get is why would you want a player who can't even BEAT OUT Conte playing in his place? We *can* do better than Conte, we just haven't done it yet. Same for a lot of positions. Hopefully we do something this offseason *cough tyrann mathieu cough*

All players do, but very rarely do they have the free market options and bidding war that Kirk just did. Usually, you're dealing with extension and a team has the franchise tag in their back pocket too.

On this we agree. Conte will make 1 splash play and 2 bonehead plays. He seems to have that Joe Hawley thing going for him though, where OBP keeps digging him back up despite how thoroughly mediocre he is. This is a really good safety FA class. I wish we'd have targeted one of them.

Still a bunch of good ones out there. If we don't sign one I'll be pretty pissed- pretty much means we have to draft one.

Yeah, not a Conte fan at all. Anybody who does the All-22 thing can see how many bad angles and brainfarts he has.

Vaccaro, Burnett, Reid, Tre Boston, Ron Parker...It would not be hard to upgrade that spot in the short term.

Someone just said, in the Free Agency thread, that no safeties have been signed. If that's the case, they're all still there, so don't quit yet.

Fitz would be an excellent addition. And a smart pick if Chubb isn't there. Shows we know to use the draft to grab talent rather than patch holes. Same with grabbing Nelson. I'd be fine either way.

It's funny b/c Jenna Laine and Co are acting like they just signed a valuable player. The guy couldn't beat out the terrible Evan Smith for a job last year. I'm sure the Titans only signed him for depth though.

Not to surprising. Jenna still thinks David Beckham is the best football player in the league
