We got VERY lucky behind that OL last year....gamble again and we could pay. It was a miracle what Cam did behind and it Kalil coming back doesn't solve it.

We also are taking a big gamble at LB counting on Beason and Davis to be healthy and good.

We also our counting on our DE duo to repeat what they did last year...to hide our secondary



Bell and Silatolu will be improved, we're pretty much guaranteed to take an o-lineman in one of the first two rounds, add another bargain free agent at some point and we're decent there (not great by any stretch but decent)

Never doubt the Kraken in a contract year.

I really believe Beason will be fine, achilles injuries take awhile to heal. I'm convinced his knee injury was a product of that. He'll be back next year. We can find another backer to fill in- can't have three superstars at LB.

Actually our O Line coach deserves a ton of credit given the injuries and suspect talent. I figure he can do the same thing this year as well particularly if we give Matsko and Brown more talent.

As those with a grasp on reality have repeated numerous times. We don't have money. It's that simple and straight forward.

The question is why? Every team have $123million to spend. Where is ours? Where is the productivity on our team from the $123million we spent?

OL is more of a concern to me than DT at this point. Kalil will help a lot, but we need to get that line taken care of for the overall betterment of the team.

OL was poo with Kalil last year to be fair

true it isn't something new but given the biggest reason for the late run last year was Cam playing well which is new. It gives me hope that next year will be different rather than more of the same. Hey it is March and if you can't be optimistic now then you never will.

The other reason for the late season run is we played a "bored" Atlana team, a piss poor Chargers and Raider team, an Eagles team that quit, and a Taints team that had the worst defense ever. Rivera and the Panthers lean on those last 5 weeks and sure, we went back to a more conventional O and did well, but its not like we beat playoff teams.

Forgive me for not seeing your logic at all. I don't see any other team in the division making big strides. About the only pickup worth a damn was Steven Jackson and that wasn't that much of an upgrade. No I don't think we are any worse off at this point.

the Falcons were one catch away from the super bowl and we were 7-9. They don't need to improve that much. The Bucs signed a top safety. They beat us twice in defensively oriented games. Their coach was a first year coach. Meanwhile we cut so many of our top defensive players just to get $3.7 mil under the cap. The situation is dire, my man! 3rd place at best.

Why is that too hard to understand by other people!

True. Kalil (besides Gross) is the leader of that line. I attribute a lot of that shitty play to the playcalling, Kalil back will definetly improve us though.

I don't buy that logic at all. Why didn't you add the whole meaningless games argument as well. By the way I thought the Falcons were a 13-3 team who were playing for home field advantage at the time. The goal is to beat some good teams and beat the ones you should which is exactly what we did.

The Bucs made ALOT of moves last year and it didn't do them that much good.

That will work in their favor because they get to draft high. Once the nucleus is formed the team will get better.

Really? Let's ask the Federal Reserve.

The fed has very limited "money printing" capabilities beyond like paying their employees.

If you had a goddamn idea what you're talking about you would have said the treasury, but you're most likely a ron paul supporter so god knows you're not constrained by the bounds of reality.

Good trolling. But honestly lets try better if you want anyone to take you seriously. How many games did Gamble play? Who was Dwan Edwards before we signed him? Seriously you need to sit back and watch the better trolls operate before proceeding.

This is the same guy who said he would use free agency to fill holes so we could go bpa in the draft.- He has not verbally back pedaled on this statement yet, but some of you gladly will let him because its so fun to blame everything on Hurney.


He also said if your not improving the bottom part of your roster you not improving. -Resigning Hartsock,Brockel, Senn, and bring in the likes of Frank Omiyale and Chris Williams is not improving poo. There's plenty of players at the bottom of the roster who could be cut to create some more breathing room as well to allow us to get some imrpovements in here.

He also said he told Rivera if they do this right him and JR will be holding up the Lombardi. -Think about that for a second. The team has to improve or at least the win-loss record must imrpove for Rivera to deserve to keep his job. If we go backwards at all then theres no way he's hoisting up a Lombardi with us ever.

This guy has done nothing thus far to differ himself from what we saw under Hurn dog. I'd even argue something would have been worked out with Gross by now if Hurney was still here.

I have made no firm judgements on him as of yet but seems some of you will give him a free pass no matter what and just blame everything on Hurney.

sorry, but you have some wholly unrealistic expectations.

what gettleman said he would like to do, his goal in managing the team, and what he's actually able to do because of the mess that hurney is obviously responsible for, are two very different things.

he can't do what he would like to do because he's stuck cleaning up a mess. it's not that hard to understand.

he is also doing what makes sense given our situation...waiting until the next wave of free agent activity to be active. the fact that he hasn't picked up really anyone so far is no indicator of future activity or inactivity. he's still trying to create room and it's very early.

I'm admittedly kind of anxious, but I'm not going to let myself get discouraged or freak out about personnel until we head into training camp. I'm not expecting top caliber talent being brought in, but i am expecting a few solid players brought in on the cheap with one or two year deals who will be decent starters.

personnel isn't what I'm worried about this year. its having a HC with poor game management skills and an OC who's a proven failure. coaching will hold us back more than the roster gettleman puts together...imo.

Whatever dude, I'm just not quite as impressed with the last 6 weeks as others. Trust me, I was rooting like we were in playoff games to win them all, but in hindsight those were all PR wins against equal or subpar NFL comp.
