In response to letting Greg hardy walk away in FA.

"Sitting down with Dave Gettleman and talking with him about the direction we're gonna head and how we're gonna get things done, they're gonna work to get that taken care of, so I'm pretty excited about that. I like the fact that we're gonna have our guys as we go forward."

So the offense suffers again so we can overpay two DEs!

i wish there was some way we could get relatively cheap but talented guys right out of college looking to prove themselves.

wow didn't see this coming... I must admit I thought GH was gone.... Maybe TD punked him in recent comments? I have mixed feelings about signing but DG knows better than us. I got a feeling we're going to be cutting some people. Peace out Captain, Godfrey, and unproductive O-men. nevertheless, I guess our next question is what's gonna happen with the oline, secondary, and much needed #1WR.

i saw the interview...pretty good stuff. from him i got that WR and CB were priorities.

 

they are still in eval process on their own roster, but looking to see what's available in the draft.

Well.... I don't think anyone of really wants to see the Kraken in another jersey. Let's just hope our other fears are put to ease and we don't over spend. 

Real question would you rather have Nicks or Hardy?

I got a feeling DG is expecting McNutt will make a splash this season. hahaha.... but seriously, I'm cool with us fixing these areas. Ginn and Mitchell are must haves unless we're upgrading. they have set a new standard.

sometimes the answer is on the roster. sometimes the answer is in the draft.

 

we need help at OL, WR, and CB...and it just so happens that this draft class is deep there.

 

we'll still see a lot of one year low cost deals this year, but we won't be the only team with them. that will probably be the case with the majority of FAs this year.

the last thing we want to see is GH lined up against the Bell...

I actually love Greg Hardy I do! But we are a secondary away from a mirror image of seattles defence!
Offensively we need two new tackles all our guards back healthy our RBs back healthy and if we keep smitty and got Olsen we need atleast two starters at WR out of the draft or FA! By keeping hardy which yes is great, but unless gettleman been lying to us and we got a poo ton of dollars there is now way we can resign this guy and have a much more effective offense than last year, so expect the same defensive games offense putting up ten points.
I'm not being a doomsday either before people start saying that, but it's like we keep one guy to sacrifice about four positions of real need, makes no sense to me, hope the front office has a good plan up its sleeve.

At least at WR we have king and mcnutt that they seem to believe in, we have absolutely nothing at OT right now which scares me

I have a feeling we'll be better this next season than last.

By paying hardy stupid money that were already paying CJ he doesn't need to write it in the sand, it's pretty obvious it doesn't leave money to help other areas of need, keeping hardy is a luxury in my opinion especially when our offense is so talentless ad empty
