    Bingo!!


    Boy...looking at the defensive lineup, I can't help but to be optimistic. What I don't see is people accounting for Willie Young. There is chatter about the rotation at DT, but what about DE? Fresh bodies rotating in all game long...Keep the pressure coming!!

    I'm still worried about the Safeties, but I don't think that the play will be as bad as last year...especially with the front 7 being improved (on paper). I do worry about LB, though....Will Shea work out? Will Williams stay healthy? Does Briggs have anything left in the tank, and does he have the drive in him anymore? Can Greene and Bostic improve on their rookie campaigns? Will Jones stick even though he wasn't drafted?

    You gotta get in early if you want a place in line at the attorneys office.

    He's just being smart and avoiding the rush.

    My favorite McClellin moment is when they moved him to NT in the fourth qtr against Seattle two years ago to "spy" Russell Wilson. He didn't even rush the passer, just stood up and tried to contain Wilson...and failed miserably.

    I remember laughing watching it because it was actually the same defense my flag football team used against a mobile QB. lol. It's sad when an NFL team reminded you of your rec league flag football team. lol

    I am not all that sold on Garza being our starter. He may be our starter day one, but don't think that will last all that long.

    The offense is set, but there is going to be some serious competition at some of the defensive spots, both for starters and to make the roster. Preseason will be interesting to watch as cuts are made.

    Hopefully we can pick up a couple extra 7th round draft picks with a few of the players who will be cut.

    Like a trade? I don't think you get compensatory picks for cuts, only people who walk away.

    Compensatory picks are awarded based upon FA losses vs gains. That's over until next March/April.

    I doubt there's anyone we might part with on the roster currently who has any trade value.

    Yes, Like a trade. Hoping another team will want somebody we let go and not risk losing them to another team. No idea who at this point just hoping we can get an extra pick next year.

    Basically what I meant, I was asking if he meant a trade.

    Gentlemen,

    I think we got dealt our hand and we better play it.

    What it is, is what weve got.

    There aint no back door out of this.

    This is the hand thats been dealt.

    Are there enough numbers to play with to get us an NFC North Championship ?

    Because we have to get thru that to get to Seattle and Frisco in the Playoffs.
