Dwan Edwards Staying

Just imagining Dwan Edwards beside the massive giant Colin Cole makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. We could finally have a fearsome interior line again.

I hope Colin Cole can come back and perform. He was never great but when he got to play with GB and Seattle, he did well. Hes def a BIG body.

Forgot about Boothe. Good point, he would be a big signing for us.

And he's staying quiet in FA... Could be a good thing for us

Nice. The question is, does DT become any less of a priority in the draft? Sure we re-signed Dwan, but do we feel the pressure to pair him with a stud?

Another Guard to watch is Brandon Moore of the Jets. I am shocked this guy has not been signed yet, he's much better than Boothe.

This is a trend I've been noticing. If we're interested and things have been quiet for a while, we've usually ended up signing them.

Well we needed at a 3 tech badly and unless you trust Colin Cole at NT too. Now we just need a NT to complete the line.

Pleasantly surprised. I like the way Gettleman does business. Draft can't get here soon enough.

It's not as pressing as it was. Gettleman is doing what he said. Filling needs through free agency so that we can go BPA in the draft. I think right now the only glaring holes are OL, WR, and TE. There are other weaknesses like #2 CB, NT, and backup LB, but I think those are the top 3.

I think best case scenario, we go DT in the first, WR in the second, and OL in the fourth. It won't work out that way, but both lines should be very deep, and there will be great talent at receiver in the second.

Not to be captain obvious here but, we came into the offseason with our panties pre wadded. We bitched and moaned about being strapped for cap. All the while Gettleman strolled in to town, laid poo down, gave the cap the finger, signed fa's that we needed, retained players that all of us thought were gone and has held true to his word of setting us up to draft BPA.

We have been jaded by the mediocrity of one Martin Hurney and his peeps for so long that we never expected a man to come in and run poo. This feels pretty good.

The Giants want to resign him but they're cap strapped worse than us... So if we can get Gross to take that pay cut and sign Mr. Boothe than we get a A+ in free agency and get to tell Pat Y to fug off
