    is that the order you would select them in the draft ?
    would you take any particular position in FA first ?

    I don't think an elite WR is necessary, if the simple catches were not dropped life would be much much easier. Teams have won without elite WRs (Patriots, Ravens).

    A beast DE never goes wrong to help out the secondary, he just can't be too much of a liability in the run.

    I think Tulloch will be fine at MLB, it is a position on the field for half the time, shared with the nickel back.

    With a DE i think the secondary improves, if a QB has less time to throw. Obviously it is hard to stick with a man if the QB has as much time to throw in the pocket as he wants and the WR can run where ever he wants.
    I do think Lamont needs to go, either try out Fuller or Lowry or draft a Safety early.

    Get rid of Schwartz, 'nough said.

    Otherwise I think we are fine.

    I suppose they could pay for me to see every game, we are 2-0 when I am in attendance. :brow:

  5. depends on who is available at draft time, if theres not a big time wr at our draft spot then we should go with reggie nelson, and maybe move up in the second round or something like that to get a ted ginn or someone like that

    Judging from what I have seen from the D this year, I see our D-line is the problem. It's hard to single one of them out. But all of them can be upgraded.

    I think we need:

    1 backup QB.
    1 contract renewal for Travis Henry.
    1 backup center (get him ready behind Mawae).
    1 stand out WR (Draft, a player to flourish, whatever).
    1/2 DE/DT rotation guys. I think LaBoy/Odom do the job, but if one is injured. We need bigger guys to stuff the run and that can go in the rotation. Maybe a stud DT.
    1 Tulluch in the middle to replace Sirmon.
    1 LaMont Thompson in a backup role and someone else starting.
    1 2005-edition of Reynaldo Hill, I don't like 2006-edition.

    The D-line will improve with a bigger(?), stronger(?) and more physical(?) Long returning next year.

    I would go after a DE in free agency. However, if the DT from Mich is available when we pick, I would get him and put him beside AH from day one.

  10. offense will be fine when we get that big WR that weve been missing forever, then go straight to our defense
