    Maybe the best quote in the entire article was this:

    I think a lot of people don't fathom how hard it is to get decent help this time of year. Most teams are not going to trade anyone worth anything unless you mortgage your draft future. And the FA's sitting at home on the couch are there for a reason. The plane is in the air now, so it's hard to swap out the engines in mid-flight. Looks like our special teams engine is smoking, the Cutler engine is misfiring a bit.....but hopefully will make it, the defensive tackling engine flat died (and they're trying desperately to re-start it), and the defensive line engine has fallen off the plane (hope it doesn't kill some poor unsuspecting sucker on the ground).

    At least the old pilot, co-pilot & navigator are gone.

    Yes, and Cutler's TOs cost us at least another FG too. Not saying the D was stellar by any means, but over half of the points surrendered to Detroit were GIFTS and Cutler was the biggest donator.

    Regarding Shea, I'd give him this year (next 12 games and that's it). If the "light doesn't go on", trade him for whatever you can get. Yes, I know that will be way way less than a 1st round pick but take the deal anyway. He's a bust, in this defense anyway, so cut your losses and move on. You got a 6th for Carimi who had a major injury so maybe you could get a 4th or 5th for Shea. Take the deal.

    He & Tice have tried. They fly an old 1-engine plane. That's Angelo on the tow rope (only two seats on their plane). Sadly, nobody wants their act anymore...

    Glad you said it was Angelo. The story I hears was that when Webb was learning to tie his shoes, he would use any piece of rope or string he saw to practice. While he was practicing the rabbit coming out of his hole in shoe-lace parlance, the plane took off on him. Amazingly, both Lovie and Tice were covered with bugs from the flight but Webb had managed to make the flight without blocking a single one.

    J'Marcus was always helpful to "Mr. Jay" and would kindly help him up after every concussion. You don't see that kind of good manners anymore. They said that he would always try to share a cold 50-piece McNugget meal with "Mr. Jay" in the locker room after those multi-sack outings. He would always tell Jay McNuggets always made him feel better after having to see Jay get those "owies" in a game. Those sacks were hard on J'Marcus to watch. Too hard.

    BTW, that Webb & Omiyale pic says it all. Ol' turnstyle Frank & Webb who couldn't tie his own shoes. Brings a tear to the eye when I reminisce about those days.

    Biggs said that our D is in BIG-TIME trouble, because he just doesn't see us generating much of a pass rush the rest of this season. He said that "hoping" that somebody steps forward to produce a magical season like Mark Anderson did back in 2006, is just whistlin' Dixie. As another poster mentioned, Biggs doesn't feel that Corn Wash is anybody to be excited about. As also noted, he sounds as though he has already written Shea off as a bust, so it appears as if our worst fears regarding Shea have been realized.
