    Jones, White, and Jackson is a formidable group.

    While we treat our HOF QB like an outcast.

    I love Ben, but he won't be a HOF'er. History will be unkind to him. So will the anti-steeler bias and his troubled personal life. The fact that he will spend the rest of his career on the injury list - seals it.

    History makes him a HOF QB NOW.

    Every eligible QB who has started three Super Bowls, regardless of record in them, is in Canton.

    Off the field messes didn't hurt guys like Bruce Smith, LT, and Michael Irvin.

    Add to that the various records that he holds and his highlight reel plays...

    Anyway, the Falcons were close this year and just got a little better. They are going to be a lot of fun to watch. My bass player is a fan of theirs and I have a feeling he's going to be a happy guy this year.

    Where was the money to offer James Harrison 70% of his pay?

    Why sign Redman AND Dwyer when the GM questioned their ability?

    Why sign DJ?

    Should have re-worked Troy, added a year to his deal also, cut Redman loose, and then signed Jackson.

    reworking troy would only add to the stupidity of doing it in the past. thats one of the reasons we have to cut everybody and are always signing scrubs. unfortunately, it is what it is.

    If you aren't going to ask him to take a pay cut? Do it. They will gain cap room by 2015 when the majority of this team is off the books anyway.
