Draft and FA predictions influenced by today's hirings

86 posts in this topic

As much as it would benefit us to draft A.J. Green, I am still going to guess that we go with Bowers or Fairley.

Rivera is a defensive minded guy and McDermott is an AWESOME pick up. Today has been the best day since my son was born!

Rivera also talks alot about tight ends.

Chud is know historically as a tight ends coach.

I think we will chase after Zach Miller.

Anything I am missing?

Rivera is good enough to compensate for lack of talent on the defensive side of the ball. We go offense for that very same reason. In fact, I think Gabbert will have a stellar combine, and will probably ride the hype train all the way to #1.

Aggressive defences are only as good as the guys covering the wide receivers...

That would be some awesome pickups. I think we would draft Peterson 1st round before signing Asomugha to an enormous contract.

Zach Miller will be our major FA pickup.

I see us getting Patrick Peterson. and Address DT in later rounds. Rivera will be confident in coaching guys up. I hope we don't draft D-line with #1 overall. D-line is one of those positions that can be taught and schemed to optimize.

Is that lobbying to sign Asomugha or draft Peterson?

I'm so pumped right now for new blood in the FO that I'm down for best defensive player available. Right now I'm leaning Fairley and signing Aso, but I'll save my final opinions for after the combine.

Speaking of which, is anybody else going to be watching the 24/7 NFL Network combine coverage for the first time this year? I mean, I watch it hear and there in the past, but I will be watching it intently this year.

    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
    • Saw it the other night and found it surprisingly decent. The acting was pretty damn good for a power rangers movie. Obvious plot holes are obvious and the plot advances before it's ready at times but it's not a bad movie. I thought the suits were cool but the zords looked terrible and the megazord was hideous. Would have been better off copying the original one tit for tat.
