    Yeah I know, and it pisses me off. There's atleast 5-10 safties in free agency and like 5 safties in the draft that could get to replace him. Won't happen though.

    I'd take'em. Not too picky when it comes to SS at this point.

    We're not cutting Griff so we need a SS

    William Moore is having a great season. He's a SS in a 4-3, good range and cover skills, tackles well, doesnt cut out the legs of runners. He practices againts Matt ryan and all those weapons the past 2 years. Has been playing against Brees too. Fits well to go up vs. Hou and Ind with they're playaction passing. He could get resinged by Atl or take a big check from a true contender, but hes the #1 guy on my list.

    Pat Chung is a SS in the Pat's hybrid D. Coming out of Org we was projected as a box guy. In NE he seemed to be theyre better more consistant players on D. Another guy I feel we should take a strong look at. Played in a SB and a lot of playoff games. Undersized but plays with some fire.

    I think Moore is the most realistic guy we may get.

    Definitely afraid that both Byrd & Goldson will get franchise tagged unfortunately.

    <<<<<<< bring him in to play safety :)

    I wouldn't mind a push for Will Moore. I think he resigns with the Falcons though. He would bring an immediate impact to our weak safety group. He can lay the wood and is pretty decent in coverage across the middle.

    I don't see why people are complaining about the top free agent safeties commanding big money. Just look at what we are paying Griffin right now. We could sign Byrd and let Griffin go. that's a huge improvement at safety with virtually NO cap hit. That would be addressing a huge need without touching any of our $19.4 mil. It would be moronic for them to not make a move like this. We could also almost double our cap room by trimming some fat. We could easily turn this team around, personnel wise, in the off season. But that would mean that Munch would have to turn us into a winning team without all of the excuses he so desperately needs.

    We are known for making moronic decisions.

    Let's draft Barcarri Rambo in the 3rd or 4th to push Punky Brewster.

    Landry is on steroids... That's why he's always hurt.
