    I said it before. Releasing Smith so early was a mistake. If we sign Phillips or a FA, thier agent is going to eat us alive. Williams( cincy) must be licking his lips. We need him and outside of the draft and giants FS...we don't have many options....We willpay thru the nose for him.
    You've said it multiple times and I still ain't listening.


    Comeon my friend.
    Do you really think they made that move without at least having not only a primary plan, but a couple of backups as well.

    It isn't like we are dealing with a semi-pro staff here.
    Mar even the perfect Triangle of Doom makes mistakes.
    Maybe they thought they had something worked out and just let him go.
    But I'd rather keep the starting safety for a backup plan until i have the new guy on the team since Smith wasn't hurting us by being on the offseason roster.
    Aren't players due a roster bonus next week?
    So he wasn't hurting us in other words?

    I think what Singer is saying is that he would cause a hit on our cap.
    But its better than having no answer for Safety.

    I believe that maybe it is a "Respect" thing.
    Gave him a bit of a lead on other players to find a position.

    Again, who knows and does it really matter that much?

    no its not good.
    Doss is gone, now Tank, that leaves us absolutely needing a starting safety.
    We have Sharper and Frampton left.
    Hmmm, now all you cats are catching on to what the Marrdro has been saying for over a month.

    Think Maybe S is now a priority both in FA and in the draft.



    No wait, lets go ahead and hope that one or both say, Smith isn't cut and trade all of our picks for one player.

    ;D

    Here is the plan that the staff will follow.

    Sharper
    Frampton
    FA Vet (Wilson/Williams/Knight)
    Rookie (2008 draft 1rst round) Reggie Smith

    Still leaves an opening.
    Either sign Doss (they offered him a multi year contract in 2006) or move Griff back to S and start McCauley or Gordon.

    Draft a Rookie CB or better yet, sign a CB from the CB heavy FA pool (Trufant/Florence/Reeves).

    Even with all that movement, we will have a better secondary than we had last year.



    Why not trade him. You can't tell me that a team like oakland who is trying to move their Safty would not consider him to offset the cost of a Huff? At the very least it lowers the picks we would use to get( huffs contract is preety high but we will be reponsible for the none gauratee part).

    Do you really think that he was that good that a team (well maybe the Lions
    ;D) would trade for him.

    That is what keeps getting lost in all of this.
    He was a decent S.
    It isn't like we really lost something/someone that is really great.

    Re: Tank to explore free agency

    but if we can't find someone to replace him it will hurt us a lot.
    ALthough he wasn't great, he wasn't bad either.
    He wasn't really a liability in pass coverage.
    It would be better than taking a rookie and hoping he pans out.
    Mabye he does, but what if he doesn't?

    Buck up my friend. I am sure they already have 2 or 3 guys targeted.
    Its what they do.

    Truth be told, the Scouting staffs have been working the roster additions/changes since this time last year.
    Again, its what they do.

    Yes, i'm sure they do have 2 or 3 guys targeted.
    But remember last offseason,
    they had a few recievers targeted as well.
    How many of them ended up coming to MInny??
    only wade, and we overpaid him to do so.
    Fergy came, but if remember correctly he was signed later.

    You really don't have alot of faith in our front office pukes do you.
    ;D

    Trust ole Marrdro.
    It will happen.
    Our roster will get filled and it will be better than last year.
    You have my word on it.
