    I think his job was just to get behind Washington and Traylor and push them into the o-line. Lol

    He sure brought in a boatload of 'em over the years - FA's and draft. I still remember the Adam Archuleta acquisition. No safety was too bad for Angelo and Lovie to drag in. Just reach down into the toilet and pull up another stinky one :-(

    For me, I think the ugly history of bad safety play over so many years just makes me feel like the ugly history of the offensive line. I just got sick of seeing the endless parade of mediocre (and worse) talent come-and-go for both of those units. On offense it was the OL. On defense it was the safeties. This is why I so want to see the safety nightmare to finally end this season.

    The next toilet you buy, you need to read the instructions. It is an input device... not an output device. You only make deposits....

    oops.... I'm harrassing the wrong person. That was supposed to be in response to JABF's post. Guess my brain is in the jar next to Souls.....

    In the years of cloth diapers, shortly after the Civil War, we rinsed the poop off in the crapper before disposing of them in the laundry room for recycling. Pampers haven't been around forever ya' know.

    Honestly, Archuletta was MUCH worse for us than Conte and Wright(outside of wrecking Urlacher's knee, of course). If he were our starting SS, we would've won 6 at most.

    Wright > Urlacher > knee = just one more reason to dislike him.

    I think after Archuleta got his big contract from Washington he decided to cash in his chips and preserve his body. He was done after that and Lovie should have seen that. Another stupid move of theirs was Meriweather. If Belichick sends a former 1st round pick packing there's a good reason for it.

    On the article he's right that you don't draft on needs. If the best player is there and there's a clear gap to the next guy then you take him almost regardless of position.

    I don't like his talk of floors and ceilings. Surely the point of the draft is you take the best guys and your coaches train them up. If you don't think a player does the things right enough to be fixed then you mark down there grade. I see no reason why you'd mark Clowney down because he might not work out. You either decide the negatives effect your pick and mark him down or you decide the negatives can be fixed.

    I'm sure you know the rest of the story, but I gotta share the part that makes Angelo an even bigger idiot than Lovie for picking up Archuletta: Washington had publicly stated that they were going to release him if they couldn't find a trading partner. Rather than negotiate out of a position of power with a FA coming off of a HORRIBLE year, Angelo gave up a 6th and took on his horribly expensive contract. THAT was the GM that almost won us a Super Bowl. An idiot who forgot to check a box (wasn't that how we lost Parrish to the 49ers?) AND traded for a guy with a massive contract that was about to be released. Maybe it's not within the next 2 years, but seeing how smart Emery is, I would HAVE to think he'll be bringing us home the trophy, rather than fall short to a one man team.

    HB I know you are n't trying to talk to Soul as if he's NOT got the whole story, HE knows what even the GM's and HC's and owners don't!! HE IS NFL football and knows all, do disagree w/him is an excersize in ignorance.

    as bad as JA was at his job, once Lovie got more power it went off the cliff from bad to horendous. Those two morons together was like watchin 2 of the 3 stooges workin g for the beloved Bears.
