NFL Offseason Discussion

Tonight (Or tomorrow depending on where you are) is the start of free agency, and entering a probable uncapped year, it should get rather interesting. Part of the reason for starting this thread, not just to talk about the goings on in the NFL, especially the Draft, is that I'm a little confused on how this whole thing works, namely a few things: The meaning of the franchise tag, Unrestricted vs. Restricted free agency, and what this uncapped summer might mean with these basics and the possible lock out in the future.

Yeah, you're fucked. Enjoy that. I will.

Also-Delhomme's released from the Panthers, while Julius Peppers and Chester Taylor are Bears.

Double also--what's everyone think of the draft? More thoughts on that from me when I get time to type tomorrow.

Vince Wilfork resigned with the Pats, 5 years, 40 Mil. Good to have that one finished up

You mean this Cromartie???












Though he had that one great year, he's fizzled a bit since then.
That said, he's a pretty good press corner, and that falls in Ryan's scheme. Can't be any worse than Lito Shepperd...

Da Bears spent quite a bit of money. I guess they have to since they traded away this year's draft. Here's hoping they get a Redskins like return on investment

Well I hope he plays as badly for the Jets as he did against them.

As a Pats fan, I'm not to keen on watching them play NY. Pats have one receiver with one foot out the door, and another one that's broken. So you'll get a dogging it Moss and some nobody 3rd receiver against 2 solid CBs.

They've narrowed it down to Suh, Gerald McCoy, Clausen, and Bradford. Bradford's probably the best bet for QB--Clausen sounds like a dick, and the St. Louis O-line is passable enough to make life bearable for an injury prone quarterback.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

That series of Cromartie FB images is great.

Bears spent a ton of money after indicating they weren't going to. I know free agency isn't the best place to pick up an offensive lineman but I'll keep parroting it anyway: If you don't fix your Swiss cheese disaster of an O line, you can bring in all-pros at every other position and you'll still get fucking mauled like you did for most of last season, you front office hacks.

Well, they cut Pace, who was so far past his once great prime last year it wasn't even a little funny. They could still use some help there though.

If these new acquisitions can live up to their potential, and last years' free agent splash can live up to his behind what I can only hope is an improved O-Line, and they can avoid boatloads of injuries it might be a good year. Can't wait to see how much the new blocking TE is in there.

I really can't remember the last great "all around" TE the Bear's had.

I think we need a QB. We passed on Sanchez last year when we had the chance.

Assuming Bradford can work out and show he's 100%, he'd probably be my pick. We've drafted a million defensive linemen over the past years....

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

And yet you keep drafting more.

In other news, Darrent Williams' killer has been found guilty. Williams was the Broncos player killed on New Year's Day in 2007 following an altercation at a nightclub.

His killer is a gangbanger who's accused of having a witness in another case against him killed. He apparently felt disrespected because the Broncos and their group got into the club while he and his crew had to wait.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

So, Jake Delhomme is a Brown. I suspect Brady Quinn has been screaming hysterically for over an hour now and will begin wandering the country in a van while ceasing to shave any day now.

By the way, am I the only one thinking things look great for the Bills quarterback situation right now? Though they're probably going to try and draft another third rounder and hope he turns out to be awesome by the camp starts, they could get either Quinn or Shaun Hill from the Niners for a badly out of tune song. They need to rebuild their O-line before getting a newbie in front of the Vikings, the Jets (twice), the Ravens, and the Packers.

By the way, I hear the ghosts of Tim Couch and David Carr haunt the stadiums of teams that don't pay attention to their line. Even though neither is dead and one still plays. Maybe I dreamed it. Either way, I read it on Bleacher Report, so you know it's true.
