    Anyways, time to get ahead of the masses.

    6'9 - 275 DE from Baylor named Shawn Oakman is the type of DE I want on this team. Long, lanky types are the key to stopping some of the passing in this league.

    Like tom Brady once said... "It's like throwing in a forest out there"

    Before the draft. They were hoping JPP would slip. But JPP was taken one before they picked. Morgan was the backup plan. They always wanted JPP.

    Morgan is meh.

    As far as saying he helps free up the others to make plays. We are a 4-3 defense, not a 3-4. His job shouldn't be to free up others to make plays, his job is to make impact plays on his own.

    Here's the big problem... We should have Michael Bennett or Cliff Avril.

    I got that update on my phone about the Seahawks going after Jared Allen today. Jesus... What's the point?! Go after Josh Gordon, not a DE when you already have three solid DEs in Avril, Bennett, and Clemons.

    They really would've been going for broke this year. They showed those contracts on MNF last night. Man, they are about to be screwed. Wilson and Sherman obviously stay, but I'm pretty sure at least one safety is gone and Browner too. They can't afford these guys much longer.

    Morgan is legit. I can't even count the times that he has broken down the pocket and Casey or Klug gets the sack.... or Brown or Ayers.
