Teddy approached the coaches mid season and personally thanked them for being the first people to give him a real chance. I think he's a Carolina player now. Hope so at least.

Would be cool.

 

We definitely know Mike Mitchell wants to stay here.

unless we completely upgrade with two or three receivers through the draft and free agency i don't see any way ginn isn't back here. he excelled in our system and he and cam have chemistry.

Good as he was, I don't really think he had enough highlights to command a huge contract elsewhere, so why not re-sign here?

Ted Ginn is a mercenary. He's going to take the cash and he probably should. This doesn't seem to me like a guy that's interested in winning over money, so we'll probably have to make some changes. It could be a bigger loss than any of us anticipate if we can't keep him because his ability to open up field on deep routes and his value in the return game is immense. But we do have to get better at the position.

Is Captain the only source of that? I would bet that Gettleman has at least been in touch with guys' agents that he really wants to keep (most important ones), and Captain just may not be one of them. Maybe not, but the only source of no contact that I've seen is Captain, and I can't imagine he knows any more than just his situation.

From what I've read, Hardy hasn't been contacted either and I haven't read any reports that indicates any players other than Cam may be getting an extension or some type of signing. Of course this is just what I have access to from the World Wide Web. But I hope you're right...

Why would you resign a free agent before you go through the draft and see what comes our way ? To Gettleman this is a business and you leave all your options on the table until you have to make a decision. The players know this and Gettleman knows who wants to stay and who is important to the team. Everyone wondered why we drafted Keekly when we had Beason. Would you question that move today? We have to be patient and see what the Gman does. If Ginn wants to stay, I think we will him a fair offer. We were a good fit for him and he did a good job for us. I'd like to have him back, but I trust Gettleman.

Personally I think there's a much better chance of him re-signing here than not.

You could tell he really liked being a part of this team.

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
