Bly is a gambler. He may have alot of interceptions, but he has been burned throughout his career even more. Not only was he CONSISTENTLY burned in Denver the past couple of years, he was also abused constantly at Detroit as well.
I've always felt Bly was over-rated and remember an article I read that provided detailed stats to prove it. Unfortunately, that was over a year ago so I won't be able to find the link.
Then why did we pick him up? I continue to wonder what our front office is doing.
Well, I'm not saying I'm a better GM, but I wouldn't have picked him up. But I can understand why they did. At the time, Harris was lost to a season ending injury. Also at that time, Spencer (off his own season ending injury last year) was being held out of workouts for precautionary reasons.
So the bottomline is, it wasn't a terrible move (since there weren't much better FA's). I was OK with signing him to compete with Brown and Spencer.
PS: for all the people that hate Clements because he gets "burned" every once in a while, you guys haven't watched Bly play the last few years have u?
