I think if we upgrade the secondary we are a playoff team even with the other holes. And no more bad coaching decisions. Were were just a couple plays away from 10-6 last year.

Assuming our new OC meshes I think we can get there next year. New Orleans is the wild card in the NFC south but I think ATL is in transition and the bucs are not a threat.

We will see.

as long as rivera is coach the bucs are a threat. remember they are the only NFCS team that swept us last year.

not if they can produce...and they aren't just getting a WR. they are getting an explosive football player who can make people miss that can help out their passing game, run game, and return game.

Yeah I'm trying to google other WR trades. I know Randy Moss had a down year before he was traded to NE but they only gave up a 4th round pick.

Seattle and San Fran are having an arms race at this point...this move makes a lot of sense if the Niners end up trading for Revis to give the Hawks another threat.

And Boldin is a 49er now....wow

that's the thing that is funny to me.

people are hesitant to give up anything earlier than a 4th for stud players in trades, even though they are proven and experienced as opposed to the unproven and inexperienced players you gamble on in the draft.

you can always get good value (overlooking/working around the cap hit) in trades for draft picks.

were it up to me, i'd trade any pick beyond the 3rd and maybe even the third for players that came with experience and proven skills.

they probably cold have gotten him for less, but even at that, they are getting a more proven and more of a sure thing than what they would get for their late first rounder.

Fair enough. NFL experience is an asset. Which is why somebody is going to pay Captain Munnerlyn handsomely.

agreed.

i can see them letting him walk.

i'm surprised that they would be letting both gamble and munnerlynn go in the same year. i don't think that either are irreplaceable, in fact neither were worth the money that they would have been getting next year (and that's assuming that capt gets near what his agent is asking).

i'm just surprised we will be going with so little experience in the secondary unless gettleman finds the cash to work with in FA.

SEE?!!!???

The Ravens will receive a sixth-round draft choice in return, the sources said.

Just a prediction... maybe Vikings make a play with a 1st and 2nd round pick or both 1 rounders and trade up to our spot to draft that Austin kid out of WVU...
