Asante Samuel - the other side of the trade debate

The Washington Redskins explored a trade for New England Patriots cornerback Asante Samuel. That's not news. The Redskins would trade a sixth round pick for a top ten water boy. Take a look at New England fan reaction to a potential Samuel trade for the other side of the debate.

Hog Heaven posted a story comparing Samuel with Champ Bailey, the gold standard of cornerbacks in an article Does Samuel Pass the Bailey Test? The story was picked up by Patriots Planet, a fan message board similar to The Warpath and ExtremeSkins. Patriots' fan reaction is very revealing. Undertaker #59 wrote " I just hope they DO trade Samuel come Saturday. Champ Bailey he is not." For more, go to the Patriots Planet thread here.
