I don't see a downfall in signing the guy. It's not our money... we need to make a splash now. We could draft positions of need other than WR....

I think it makes all the sense in the world and I have little faith in it happening.

So I guess the scouts were right to pass on Tom Brady as much as 6 times in the draft, to pass on Tony Romo altogether, to let Russell Wilson sit for 3 rounds, etc?

Brady is an exception...

You can you an exception to disprove just about any standard. The league showed in the draft Jimmy wasn't highly viewed.

Russell Wilson was viewed as a much better college QB. There are some questions about transitioning to the NFL that only playing will answer. If Wilson was 4 inches taller....he would have been a first rounder

Yep and he was a pitcher before too, that usually helps QBs a lot in terms of arm talent (I hate that term, but it works well in regards to this)

Us getting Mike Wallace is not the point. The fact that we are seriously considering him is.


There us really nothing in Rivera's comment that means we are even considering Wallace.

The warm comment could very well mean we are considering a FA WR and not Wallace.

We could go after him, but don't get your hopes up. You will likely be disappointed.

Wyche was pushing it, not RR, so this is accurate. I heard the Fins want Wallace, and that is a good fit because they have cap room. Wallace is a bit overrated in my opinion. He body catches and drops a high percentage of passes.

Wallace, Bowe, Jennings, Freaking Santa Claus I dont care. I'm just excited about the possibility that we would approach the WR position with the same fervor that we have LB or RB in the past.

Telling you Devery Henderson would be perfect in this offense.

And as far as the cap, I know it seems bleak but it is not unprecedented or even uncommon that teams would make some adjustments IOT to sign one particular guy. And Gettleman would not have taken the job if he didn't have a plan so, Im trying to be patient and foolishly optimistic!!!!

Don't know what he is asking...but I would assume he would be more costly than Wallace.

For some reason, I didn't.
