The Ravens, Packers, and Steelers haven't signed anyone either I think..what crappy teams.


bad comparison. we're not even close to being or having players like the ravens , packs, or steelers.

Who did the Ravens sign in the '08 offseason? Yet they competed because of great drafting.

Main players for the Packers? Guys they brought in themselves. Woodson is the only key free agent they brought in.

Steelers never sign anyone in free agency.

Can it be frustrating? Sure, but anybody acting like we should go balls out like the Redskins and Raiders have done in the past are being ridiculous. Who was the last team that was considered to have had the best free agency ended up doing jack? The only one that might even apply is the '09 Saints. But pretty much all of the Super Bowl champions before and after them were built via the draft. You'd have to go back to the '00 Ravens to find one that benefited heavily from FA and their dominance didn't last long anyway.

I'll have fun watching Carolina still be better than Tampa this season despite their fancy FA signings. Jackson is such an overrated signing in the first place. Who was the last FA wide receiver that actually ended up playing up to the level he did on his old team on the new team?

Nobody...

...and I've lost track of the number of starters they've cut loose (or, not kept).

Jeremy Shockey, TE
Geoff Hangartner, OG
Dan Connor, MLB***
Derek Anderson, QB***
Legedu Naanee, WR
Antwan Applewhite, OLB***
J.J. Jansen, LS***
Jordan Senn, OLB***
Gary Barnidge, TE***
Mackenzy Bernadeau, OG***
Richie Brockel, TE***
Jerome Felton, FB***
Cletis Gordon, DB***
Ronald Fields, DT***
Reggie Wells, OG***

Who else on this list did they keep?


(*** = not a starter)

The team made the decision last year to spend on what they deem as the core of the team.As a result we have little money to spend .As of now we have a net loss of talent going into next year losing Wharton,Shockey,Connors Applegate and others.We will pick up 2 starters in the draft I feel the rest will be dumpster diving for depth and hopefully some ST talent.I dont see us drastically changing unless Otah Davis,Gettis and Beason come back and can play most games

I've been saying this for a while.. our drafts MUST improve if we intend on reaching the superbowl, and becoming a playoff contender year after year..

our drafts haven't been that bad over the years.. last year may have been one of the best we've had in a while, but it's too early to determine how those DTs will pan out, Hogan, etc.. Although I will be shocked if Hogan isn't starting next year.

All these people whining about not signing anyone...Please list who you would like to sign and how that would be possible with our cap space.

If you want big FA spending you need to become a Redskin fan. Hell if you want middling FA spending this isn't the team for you.


If back to back winning seasons is what you want, this isnt the team for you.

I give you the Eagles from last year. Big time FA spending = "Dream Team" = total season meltdown.

Plus, its not like we have 25 mil in cap space.
