    Transition Year?? Like 2006

    I said it last week.
    Lets face it ....We're screwed.
    Our strengths are Weak (ie. stopping the run, rushing the passer)

    Time for a Youth Movement ... we started 2006 at 2-6 and finished strong.
    This team still has a very strong core, we just have some oldies sticking around that just can't compete anymore.

    How many old guys are we really talking about? Theres a few on defense, thats not enough to call replacing them a youth movement. The o-line is getting younger, just not better. And we already have two young guys at defensive end to replace the vets. What else do we need besides a middle linebacker to replace Foote/Farrior?
    Some people subscribe to a permanent stasis of wishful thinking. They like to believe the world is made of marshmallows and filled with butterflies. I don't.

    Cut Foote and make Farrior a backup. Cut A Smith.

    I agree with Sid. I mean my God, Smith-Hampton-Keisel-Farrior are from the Cowher era. They should be rotating, not starting. They can't stop the run anymore. Hood-McClendon-Heywood-Sylvester need to be starting, playing and developing, not watching. The o-line obviously needs rebuilt. O can't even function anymore. And please spare me the 'they went to the sb' crap. You can't beat time and their time s up. Too much age carring high salaries.

    This helps how? Zero savings on the cap, and decreasing our depth on defense. Not exactly a fix-all solution.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I hope not (but it's lining up like that).

    I don't care about no top picks, etc. I would prefer that we limp to a playoff appearance and lose in the first round than becoming a scrub team. I don't care if it's like Seattle last year (losing record). Playoffs always trumps top 10 pick.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    I get the fact that after week one they are on the hook for the entire contract, and that it won't help the cap. The fact is that these guys are not producing at a pro level right now.
    We have their replacements on the roster right now. They need playing time.

    That's how it helps.
