  1. The Titans didn't win under Young because he was a good Quarterback, or had Intangibles, or anything of the sort. They won under Young because they have a good football team, one that can play a power running game along with their top Defense.

    It's the same reason they were the #1 Seed in the AFC last year with Kerry Collins behind center, and certainly nobody thinks a ton about Kerry Collins.

  2. we have enough "good wrs." see if you can find a great FA WR thats worth the money as opposed to drafting one of the many talented WRs with our 1st pick.

    There isn't a Great FA WR. That's the problem. Nor does it sound like any of the teams rumored to trade their star WR plan on actually pulling the trigger.

    Leaving only the draft.

  3. I think you're underrating Leonhard, he was a really nice player for Baltimore last year, was selected to wear the radio in the helmet over Ray Lewis, Bart Scott, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata, ect. Definately an upgrade over what we currently have. Of course, so would Sean Jones and a couple other Free Agents so I don't think it's a must-sign scenario.

    Dead on about Ivy though. He's Poteat with another name, no big loss.

  4. Tannenbaum was hardly schooled.

    All the 2nd round clause was just insurance on the Jets part that if Jonathan Vilma was so good that the Saints couldn't risk him hitting the open market, that we'd be well compensated for it. I don't think for a minute that the Jets ever counted on receiving that draft pick.

    I will say though, giving 17 million guaranteed to someone with a known knee condition seems like a bad deal from the Saints end. He's one bad tackle away from never being the same again.

  5. He was abused badly by the Marlins over the years and his arm doesn't have the same life to it that it used to now. Add in his control steadily declining the last 4 years and that was a trainwreck in the making.

  6. I'm confused.

    How are the Giants going to find playing time for:

    Osi Umenyiora

    Mathias Kiwanuka (they say he isn't going back to LB)

    Justin Tuck

    Fred Robbins

    Barry Coefield

    Chris Canty

    Rocky Bernard

    The talk is that Robbins and/or Cofield might get released, as they're coming off of Knee Surgeries and apparently the Giants have some doubts that one or both of them can get back to the player he used to be.

  7. If Warner signs this will pretty much guarantee that either Sanchez or Stafford will be available at pick #17

    Not really, Warner is going to be 38. At most he gives you maybe 2 years. I'm not passing up a Franchise QB if one is available for a short-term answer like Warner. Instead I take him and tell him in 2 years it's his team. Until then, sit down, shut up, and learn.

  8. Um.... Why?

    The Jets work a lot of contracts like that. Pace and Rhodes's deals were structured similarly and we restructured them last week. Brandon Moore's was also structured this way and we cut him (Only to later resign him). I think the thought process is that it helps financial flexability down the line as we have the choice of the lump sum payment, or a restructure, or a cut. Also, we get a year of the player in the system to determine if he's worth the big money, and if he is, we restructure. If he's not, he's gone.
