          He was no Champ Bailey but he was far from a scrub. Newman was pulling in 4 or 5 INTs a year.

          You'd have major BISP if one our CBs from the last 5 years created turnovers like T-New.

              Yeah, Newman was a pretty decent DB. Most of the fan discontent with him was that he shouldn’t have been drafted as high as he was and that he was older than most rookies. That created a built in hate for him and he was never oblectively judged as a player but constantly compared with what they thought a #1 pick should be.

                Newman was certainly better than the next Deion Sanders, who they traded up for.

                This team was in shambles back then though, really freaky to look back at how god awful they were at personnel from Jimmy to Bill.

                  Who was in charge of personnel between Jimmy and Bill? It wasn't "they" -- it was Jerry. That's when he was going through his first "gotta prove I'm a football guy" phase.

                      Newman definitely took more flack due to his draft position and who they took him over, but unfortunately that’s a factor.

                      But for his career you could do worse.

                        I thought overall Newman had a really good career. Wasn't an int machine, but he was very effective in coverage.

                                Should have taken Thornhill.
