We have a good team. We just lack a few players at key positions who can change a few games. I'm counting on Tanard Jackson and Brandon Merriweather manning both safety spots.

If not, I'd add William Moore - S ATL


scratch Bowe off the 'wish' list - he's staying at KC

I want to see Josh playing healthy before he's written off. Even with his injuries, he still led the team in receptions.

Plus it was his first year in the offense. I think we gotta cut this guy some slack.

But I get for the money he's getting, people expect more... The thing is, he was given that money while injured/recovering. Now that he'll finally be 100%, he could ball out.

I think what we're forgetting here is that, he's a helluva run blocker. If you insert Bowe or Player X, is there a drop off? How many holding calls did Josh have this year? Are we looking at his complete body of work, because I don't think he gets credit where it's due.

WR's are a huge part of this run game. They're a huge reason why Morris had a banner year.

we have 3 QBs and managed to win the NFC East with them

we do have a number of issues but we do not need another QB at this time

I'm sure we'll see a couple of QBs in camp but the 3 we had last season will be fine

The offense here is going to continue to evolve and I don't see Vince Young or T Jackson as being 'suitable' for what we will be doing here AT ALL :lol:

Fill me in on this one, please. :hmm:

Hey SJ - I know we have 3 QBs but one is on the mend and the other is named Rex and I don't think he's under contract. BTW - I'm not lobbying for VY.

I bet we draft a QB or at least bring another one in.

... and yes, CLL, Josh Morgan is a good receiver and a terrific run blocker. I can remember him springing Griff for a TD on the edge against Dallas and he did that more than once.

EDIT: Just found this ~

How did Vince Young go broke after earning $26 million in six years of professional football? Cars? Trips? Houses? Women?

As Clay Travis details, the former Tennessee Titans quarterback had a more lowbrow, deep-fried road to the poorhouse: He spent thousands of dollars per week at chain restaurants.

Folks in the Nashville area helped piece together Young's squandered wealth during the3HL radio show this week. Among other tales, they report the University of Texas legend spent as much as $5,000 per week at Cheesecake Factory during his rookie season.

Five thousand. Per week. At a place with appetizers for $7.99.

A buddy of mine waited tables at Cheesecake for years. He served a number of famous people and large groups and estimates that the biggest tab he ever saw was $1,400 from a 20-person group. Even if Young brought the entire Titans offense out to eat, getting to $5,000 per week is mind-boggling. It's not like there's $90 steaks and $250 bottles of wine on the menu to help rack up tabs, you know?

Other amazing, hard-to-believe rumors: Young once spent $6,000 in a single sitting at T.G.I. Fridays, he paid a kid $200 to carry his luggage at the airport and he'd do $600 shots of Louis XIII de Remy Martin at Morton's after games. It's the last one that's most appalling. Shooting, rather than sipping, a fine cognac is like putting ketchup on Kobe beef. Or, more appropriately, spending $6,000 at T.G.I. Friday's.

Darth - I'd agree that we'll likely see some new faces at QB but I do not think we're making a change here at QB - there's just no need ....

I certainly don't think that any players who are not completely focused on practicing and playing will be a part of Bruce & Mike's group



not many players last very long in the NFL, spending money like that ..... such a waste

Qb position...

1) Make sure RGIII is healthy before playing him.

2) Trade Cousins for a couple nice picks, at least a 2nd this year, and maybe a 3rd or 4th next year;

3) Cut Rex. Salary, age, mobiilty all an issue...

4) Sign or draft a QB (late in the draft, e.g., 6th round) that can play this kind of offense. One that gets overlooked becuase of size, experience, etc...a RGIII minnie me, not a slow footed qb like Rex.
AND, here's the bombshell, I know few will agree with me....

5) sign Tebow to a cap friendly deal, once the Jets release him.

Great teammate, can play in short yardage, can play FB...provides Kyle flexibility. Allows us to protect RGIII on obvious short yardage plays.

I'm liking it!!

Even that money only accounts for $1.5 million. What'd he do with the other $24.5?
