  1. This one is more than easy. This isn't the player we signed several years go. Cut him. Move on. We should be going younger in places that make sense. And this is one of them.
  2. It isn't our greatest need, but it is a need. Our offense hasn't been the same since tony left. I like bennet, but honestly I would rather have Allen out of Indy. Younger guy who can block too. But no matter I think it's a need.
  3. I don't see bacon on that list. And if he isn't fired up about bacon then I don't trust him.
  4. I don't know if he can translate his game to the NFL level but it's hard to argue taking him where we did in the draft. What if this guy becomes a 90+ reception monster? Think of how much that helps the offense, how much that helps roddy and Julio. And we get back that dimension we had with tony, of a first down machine. Could be huge.
  5. A guy with upside. Will need to be coached up to be an impact guy. He has a large enough frame to play tackle but is athletic enough to play guard. It's s good pick in the seventh round. Pretty sure ed reed is no longer on the board.
  6. simmons, freeman, Teheran are safe. Wood is probably safe. Miller hasn't been here long enough to get dumped. Chris Johnson would be the next guy. We could try to package him with a pitcher (none of the ones above) to dump contract and open a spot for a triple A pitcher. I liked the trade today. I think we had to make that deal. I hate losing kimbrel, but an elite closer is a waste to the current roster anyway. We have other guys that will be able to close for us as soon as next year. And as someone else mentioned, to get melvins albatross of a contract off the books we were going to need to sacrifice someone. Obviously we had been trying but those deals fell thru. At least now we got a very good pitching prospect, a guy who can help us out in CF, and a nice draft pick. And of course we dumped the contract. Is this ideal ? No. In a perfect world BJ hit 260 for us and was the piece that pushed us over the top. But he didn't. Clean slate with a ton of close prospects. It's not perfect. But combined with the rest of the off season, I will take it.
  7. Some hard hit balls thru 2 innings off of folty. Two tough catches on liners by Gomes. Second time thru could be interesting. Fastballs catching a lot of the plate.
  8. We broke the rules for two years and we were caught. What we did was worse than what the Browns did. Pretty simple really. I think our third is gone. I hope not, hope its a later pick. But we got caught doing something stupid. If this was the Seahawks that were doing this, wouldn't we all think it was pretty serious? I don't think we can say that because we sucked we should get a lighter punishment. Whoever at the highest level approved of this should be unemployed. Inexcusable.
  9. I would feel personally better about folty if he didn't look like tommy Hanson all roided out.
  10. Considering I don't think anyone really expected him to make the ball club this year, I think he has been fine. Yes he has to work on his command, and he will do so this year. Same with his control. We knew we weren't getting a finished product with him. There is a chance that he never makes our rotation. But that's why Houston gave him up. If he was a sure thing, ready to start in the big leagues he would still be in houston.
  11. Not a fan of his agent, but I would at least kick the tires. He has been pretty good at age 34. Might have a few good years left.
  12. De ILB OG safety Rb Project TE Another OT Everything but DT, Qb. That is easier yeah let's go with that.
  13. I've noticed that the ABC baseball has been working a lot lately. While I am still dubious of the approach, it has grown on me somewhat. The saber metrics folks hate the idea of giving away outs. And they don't think much of the idea that a ground out may be better than a strikeout. An out is an out. I have become far more curious what the lineup we go with will look like, and if this approach can work. I still say no, with this collection of players. Too much will count on younger guys and the pitching. And how stubborn freddi is with playing vets. But I am at least excited to see where all this goes.
  14. The bills .... What good is a running back with no oline help? And wr and te, with next to nothing at Qb. And that line again that won't protect the QB. The bills have made moves, yes. And maybe they get some line help in the draft. But if we are looking at the moves they have made.... That clay signing is awful. That money could have gone to an olinemen. Instead they are overpaying at several skill positions.
  15. I think the only way we go something other than pass rush is if nearly everyone ahead of us goes pass rush and they are all gone. But that is certainly not what we want. We want pass rusher.
