    If they have intentions of bringing back Johnson, working out Kafka & Hoyer wouldn't change that. They know what they have in Johnson. Working out two more just adds more nuts to the bowl. They may feel Kafka or Hoyer are better at the end of the day & sign one.

    2nd Bradley Roby CB
    3a Kareem Martin DE
    3b C.J. Fiedorowicz TE
    4th Christian Jones LB
    5a Dri Archer RB
    5b Kevin Pierre-Louis LB
    6a Beau Allen NT
    6b Shaquille Richardson CB
    7th John Brown WR

    If this is the route we are going they should also work out Stephen McGee, the former Cowboys back-up. I think he is better than both Kafka & Hoyer.

    You just can't do that in this league and expect to actually contend. Sure, you can maybe even put up a winning record, if you are lucky, but as we saw in SF last night, a good D without any decent O isn't enough when you play decent teams; it just doesn't work.

    This is like picking which pile of dog crap we want. "Ohhhh, no this pile of crap over here is better than that pile of crap." Like they said in the movie, "Meatballs" - it just doesn't matter.

    By the way, I watched some of that move last weekend, and was a little shocked at how powerfully unfunny it was. I recall back in the day, that some people thought this movie was a real hoot. It isn't. It's actually just horrible.

    Pretty sure we saw that Sunday night at Heinz Field. The D pretty much pitched a shutout and we still lost. Two turnovers that were right there for FG's and a special team TD. Piss poor. Think about it...we would of probably been better off running the wildcat with direct snaps to RB's after that first TD.....

    One thing is for sure: He won't be calling any audibles.

    If he wants to change a play he will have to fill out a request form and file it in triplicate with Tomlin, Rooney and Steely McBeam. If they all agree the play will be changed but only after notifying NORAD via an encrypted telegram. If Tomlin and Rooney agree, but McBeam objects, the request will be escalated for approval by the Dalai Lama and Hugo Chavez.

    EDIT: I forgot to add that if the Dalai Lama and Hugo Chavez can't agree, they will decide via pistols at dawn on the dark side of the moon.

    LMAO. Did I miss something? Did they change the play at the goal line that went over like a wet turd?

    Hoyer will be a good stop gap once Batch is injured and will allow us to win on Sunday, then little Ben will be popped out by our next Ravens game and Big Ben will be back on the field. The defense looks good, the running game looks good and we make a Super Bowl run.
