okay, what teams are left from the list? Giants and Patriots? How about we look at that 2007 Superbowl matchup since it was so memorable.....greatest NFL offense vs the underdog Giants.

Plaxico Burress - 1000+ yards, 12 TDs
Wes Welker - 1000+ yards 8 TDs
Randy Moss - 1000+ yards 23 TDs


Don't even get me started on the 2011 Giants

Antrell Rolle
Michael Boley
Chris Canty
Deon Grant
David Baas
Rocky Bernard
Dave Tollefson

Why? Because everything is cyclical in the NFL. They WILL get back to running the ball much more and playing greater Defense. It just happens that way.

I feel like it's needs to be said that Jarrett Bush was once ours, had a phenomenal TC and preseason, and was cut in favor of some chumpish ole veteran like Dante Wesley or whoever the crapped up our depth chart that year.

". . . but if Newton weren't the star of the offense it wouldn't matter."

All points aside, that is just a terribly constructed sentence. Dude sucks at his job.

Is Jarrett Bush having a good preseason? I was under the impression that Greenbay's secondary was terrible last year, and he didn't even start anyway.

Their fans pretty much consider him their Captain Munnerlyn. But we can't let that get in the way of our emotions!!!1

you aren't factoring WHY the NFL is changing rules.....which have turned it into a passing league.

NFL has a better shot at being a glorified flag football league IMO than going back to 3 yards and a cloud of dust football league. You can't knock QBs around, you can't man-handle WRs and you can't hit either of them hardly.

You guys remember that year Tennessee had one of the best DL's in the league that was comprised almost entirely of our castaways?

Wasn't that the line with Haynesworth (motivated) and Kyle Vanden Bosch as the two best players? I don't think Tony Brown or Jovan Haye off the bench were making that line what it was.

Haha yeah, I figured about as much, but I didn't want to go through nine pages of people screaming about the Stewart deal is the end of the world or the best thing ever to find out what brought up Jarrett Bush. Thanks.

Selective memory about camp cuts from 7 years ago (which were most certainly not made by Hurney)

Gotta love huddle logic

Every single time we've made a deep run into the playoffs we were involved in free agency the year prior. In 1996 we brought in Kevin Greene, Wesley Walls, Greg Skrepenak, Eric Davis, all guys that proved to be big time contributers that year.

Before the 2003 season? Okay, um, there was Stephen Davis, Jake Delhomme, Ricky Proehl. Also I can't help but to include Brentson Buckner, Mark Fields, Al Wallace and Jeff Mitchell while we're at it whom were free agent acquisitions from previous seasons.

Before 2005 we added Lucas, Wahle, Marlon McCree and Chris Draft.

Even in 2008 we brought back Moose, signed Keydrick Vincent, and added Tyler Brayton to the roster.

This isn't just something we've benefitted from. The Giants, Packers, Saints**, Patriots, Ravens all improve their roster by upgrading through trades or FA acquisitions. Even when Hurney fleeced Jerry Angelo for Greg Olsen, he said something in the press along the lines of "I went up to Richardson and said 'look I know we've talked about just building through the roster you know'" as if ripping off the Bears was like pulling teeth from our end. What could we have gotten in the third round that would've been as good as Olsen? Free Agency, or even trading, is something to use to gain a competitive advantage, and in this league, winning is priceless. You don't gain any extra credit in prestige for saving money. Money which, by the way, is granted through collective bargaining and isn't even directly coming out of Richardson's pockets.

And it seems to me like this perception of a zen outlook by just accepting every boneheaded philosophy this team has is false because I didn't see a lot of serenity prayer at work on your part last night when you were typing in all caps trying to force every other poster on here to conform to a numb, stepford-like fanbase. If you're prepping up a response re-iterating your point about accepting it because you've got no control over it and that's your bottom line then save your energy because I understand what you're saying, I don't agree with it, and I'm not going to just ballyhoo every single transaction this team makes whether it makes sense or is foolish. I know you understand what I'm saying.



This post. Right here. Right now. Should be sticked and ANY time somebody chucklehead defends Hurney et al, their post immediately goes to this sticky.

Totally totally agree man. The blind confirmation bias in here is staggering at times.

Pie and gold star and free cable.

I agree.

Also looks at who out of our division is going to the playoffs since our last appearance. ATL and NO...and they are relying on the draft AND FA to get them their.
