    This is the unknown. If Finny's replacement lets 7 out of 10 balls thrown against him get caught too, then no. If hes better than that, then yes.

    My biggest fear of losing Finny is tackles. Theres a reason why he always had a lot of tackles, the guy could tackle. however that came along with him letting the WR he was facing catch the ball too much.


    Itll be fun (or horrible) to watch next season to find out.

    Campbell was my rookie to watch last year. Back then it was because he was coming from being a janitor. I figured he'd be hungry and his speed and athleticism seemed elite. The only way we're better without Finny is if this guy develops into a playmaker this year or possibly another young guy.

    I think we're better with Finny, but we could have better starters on the field if any of the young guys is better than Finny. Hawkins held his own against one of the best passing teams in the league last year and there's been a lot of good things said about Campbell.

    I voted "better" but I explained my reason - legitimate - why I voted that way on page 1 or 2.

    3/10 people vote Finnegan is garbage and makes the team worse. He wouldn't even deserve a roster spot.


    Hard to believe he will be that bad.

    I think that in the near term we are going to miss him. However, over the next 2-4 years we will be better without him IMO.

    That said, since no timeframe was specified in the poll, I voted for this season (we will miss him).

    Even if FInnegan sits the bench we are better with him, unless all CBs on the roster are better.
