Who said Edwards would be the Number 1 receiver? He'd help smith not get triple teamed. I think he'd be a great complementary Solid #2, has a Potential to be a #1 after Smith leaves. Besides in NY he's a solid #2. Smith and Edwards 1 and 2 punch.

If Smith stays we don't need Edwards. Gettis or Lafell are just as capable of having as good a season as Edwards and they are already signed. If Smith is gone then Edwards will be a poor substitute. We might have to go that direction but it would hardly be a good switch. If we are going to bring someone in I would be okay with Edwards if he were cheap. But I still like the scenario where we trade Smitty and a draft pick to San Diego for Vincent Jackson. As for free agents out there, Edwards wouldn't be my first choice unless he is cheap which I gather he wouldn't be.

All this "knowing Chudz's offense" is making me sick!

You do realize that you're talking about the WR position right??

Let's see here... Route running, blocking assignments, catch the ball and try to score...

Not fuggin rocket science... Plug n play a WR

Now with all that said if we didpick up Braylon I would support it. Just wouldn't be my choice, that's all...

If WR is so plug and play and you can shift from system to system with no problem then why did a Sydney Rice have one good year with Favre and that system but hasn't done Jack, before or after. Why has Braylon Edwards had one 1000 yards season in his career?

Obviously the system does matter and for example guys who flourish in a WCO short passing attack with few real running plays may not be ideally suited for an offense where everything is vertical and blocking is considered a big deal.

Don't compare 'Spoon to JA.

By "Spoon", are you referring to that LB that we had...who left for a big payday...and then never lived up to that salary or hype?

That "Spoon"?

In Rice's situation, it is not the system....it was the QB.

Before and after Favre, the Vikings have had poo at QB.

For our team, I would take Johnson, Weddle, and Floyd. Thank you.

First off Smith will be back, Second DWill will be back, Third CJ will be back, the only one im not sure of is Anderson. We have a high pick invested in Connor and he wont be playing special teams his whole career. Beason, Davis, and Connor will make a terrific LB corp for a long time. I think we will look at all options for DT to help bring along those massive bodies we drafted, as well as look at the intrest of a Asomugha in coming here(stupid not to at least ask). Also looking at the WR position if Smith(NYG) wants out of new york he is more than welcome here(you know what they say, never enough Smittys). All in all we should spend almost all of our cap room in a free agency the likes of which Panther fans have been starving for for years.

conner>anderson

so you would take a 2 down backer over a 3 down backer?

Conner doesn't have Anderson's speed though, and we can't afford to push Beason to the outside when we don't have to. Unless you think Norwood is going to be a starter some time soon.

exactly Conner is a 2 down lb that brings nothing to pass defense, while JA is a all around player.plays every down,pretty stupid comparasion.
