    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    I know I'm a bit bias, but I think the acquisition of Bodden and Springs will be as good a pickup as there is. It fills a huge need that we had, and also will provide great training for Wilhite, Wheatley, and Butler.

    What? no mention of T.O. to Buffalo. He'll help for a short while until he gets disgruntled. At least for now the Pats will have to account for him when he plays.

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    Where's Albert Haynesworth in all this?


    Another retarded contract from Daniel Stein . . .   er . . .   Snyder effectively wrecks two teams. Tennessee was a mirage last season anyway, but without their anchor on defense will be almost unrecognizable in an improving AFC South, and Washington's continued efforts to purchase cohesion, while lucrative for the handful of players who hoodwink Snyder, will never create a team in D.C.
    From the perspective of every other team in the league, that has to be the best move.

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    What exactly are the Jets trying to do this season? Are they trying to make the playoffs or are they trying to build a team? It looks to me like the Bart Scott acquisition over Eric Barton would be an upgrade, but the rest lateral moves and depth lost. Here’s a list I found of players acquired and lost for the Jets.

    Jets Acquired:
    Bart Scott, LB
    Lito Sheppard, CB
    Jim Leonhard, FS
    Donald Strickland, CB
    Marques Douglas, DE
    Mark Sanchez, QB
    Shonn Greene, RB
    Howard Green, NT
    Matt Slauson, G
    Larry Izzo, ST

    Jets Lost:
    Laveraneus Coles, WR
    Chris Baker, TE
    Eric Barton, ILB
    CJ Mosley, DE
    Bret Ratliff, QB
    Abram Elam, S
    Brett Favre, QB
    Hank Poteat, CB
    David Bowens, OLB
    Kenyon Coleman, DE
    Mike Nugent, K
    Cody Spencer, ILB
    Marcus Mason, RB
    Noah Herron, RB

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    I know I am bias, but the Pats have done awfully well this off-season, here is the breakdown

    Pats Additions
    CB Shawn Springs
    CB Leigh Bodden
    TE Chris Baker
    TE Alex Smith
    HB Fred Taylor
    WR Joey Galloway
    WR Greg Lewis
    LS Nathan Hodel 
    OLB Tully Banta-Cain
    SS Patrick Chung
    DT Ron Brace
    CB Darius Butler
    OT Sebastian Vollmer
    WR Brandon Tate
    LB Tyrone McKenzie
    OG Rich Ohrnberger
    OL George Bussey
    LS Jake Ingram
    DT Myron Pryor
    DL Darryl Richard
    QB Tom Brady (From Injury)

    Pats Subtractions
    CB Ellis Hobbs
    HB LaMont Jordan
    WR Jabar Gaffney
    LS Lonnie Paxton 
    LB Mike Vrabel
    QB Matt Cassel 
    CB Deltha O'Neil 

    The Pats have filled all the voids created by departed players, minus Vrabel (JT maybe) and added numerous players to shore up weak spots.  A+ for BB, Casario, and Floyd Reese

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    I don't see how Cutler improves the Bears at all.

    He might be a little more free-lance than either of the stiffs the Bears have been employing, but they've still got no receivers and will have to run the ball effectively and play staunch defense to stay with Green Bay and Minnesota. I don't know that Chicago is tough enough through the middle (on both sides of the ball) to do that. I see Da Bears as a .500 team at best.

    As for the salary structure, I view the Haynesworth deal as an anomaly that is only useful as a bargaining chip if some other owner (and granted, it will only take one) is fool enough to follow Snyder down the garden path. Everybody can't play for the Redskins, and unless the cap is obliterated in the next collective bargaining agreement, the best teams will continue to be those that understand positional value and don't break the bank for a player -- any player -- at the expense of franchise philosophy.

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

         I knew someone would bring this up. Do any of you really believe that the acquisition of Cutler makes the Bears an instant contender? They still have holes on the DL and OL. They still have needs at WR. It certainly didn't help that they gave up two #1 draft choices for him.       Sorry...but I don't see how trading for this overrated primadonna makes them significantly better.

    Glad to see somewhat else thinks the same of Cutler as I do.  There have always been rumors out that he was/is a "me" type of player and was certainly unhappy in Denver when Shanahan was fired and spoke openly to the media about his not liking what was taking place.  Certainly didn't appear that he ever had any intentions of embracing McDaniels and change.  McDaniels being in the "Pats" system where it is a team concept would have had a very difficult time dealing with a player like Cutler.  Good for Denver for trading him!!!

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    That Phins draft is another one I don't get, very high risk. Hartline, Turner, and Nalbone were all late round or undrafted type players. Smith and Davis are talented but risky with their attitude. White doesn't have a position. Chris Clemons is the only pick in the draft I like as a combination of talent, value, and risk. The value then in their draft is in the defensive secondary. That's important with 4 games a year playing either Moss or TO.

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    We'll see about Cutler.  I am apt to believe he will do well in Chicago.  However, with all of the riches that Denver got for him (even if I did think it was a bad idea to trade him, they did get paid well) it does not appear that they took advantage of it in the draft.

    I agree about the receivers who I think were overdrafted.  They are going to use White in a version of the Wildcat featuring more passing. The key to their draft is Smith who may not be quick enough to play corner. But Parcells is a good judge of talent so they may have some sleepers like the tight end.

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

         On the same token, whose ever heard of the offensive lineman that the Patriots selected? Who knows how these players will turn out?        Initially, I agreed about Davis being a risk. But, I have confidence in Parcells not to take a guy who is an airhead, and doesn't care about football.
    Posted by TexasPat3


    That's what they've said about every offensive (and most defensive) linemen that the Pats have taken in the past 10 years. I agree though that Davis and Smith have a ton of talent. The worries though I had about them before the draft though still apply, but now they were two of the first three picks for the Phins. It's not as risky a draft as what the Jets did, but still, this is a draft that could quickly turn into nothing.

    Re: Best Off-Season Moves

    Ayers will be a great Sam LB in the 3-4 system on first and second down and then as a down end or even tackle on third down. The Broncos did a great job in bringing in talent for their LB corps and defensive backfield. The defensive line is the only concern. They added Darrell Reid who is more of a third down player and Ronald Fields who isn't much better than a backup NT. They did get Chris Baker as an undrafted free agent. I wouldn't be surprised if he started and was an every down player. Baker was dismissed from the Penn State team for fighting a couple of times. But he's a talented player and probably would have been a third round pick without the problems at Penn State. For the Broncos, though, he has experience at the end position and nose in a 3-4 system. He was a steal to go undrafted.
