    Taking a quick look at our roster this time vs. last year, I think that we've improved in talent. Granted that's the case with every team at this point in the year before injuries and age sets in...buuuut still.

    Lose: Thomas Jones
    Gain: Garrett Wolfe

    Ok clearly a loss here.

    Lose: Tank Johnson
    Gain: Darwin Walker

    Talent wise about a draw. Tank is younger but his career in the NFL is probably over so I'll go Darwin.

    Lose: Ian Scott
    Gain: Anthony Adams

    I like Adams' upside over Ian's. He was out of place in San Fran but I think if given the chance he could be a factor.

    Lose: Alphonso Boone
    Gain: Dusty Dvorack

    I actually really liked Boone, and it looks like he's going to start in KC. I'll call this one a draw as well.

    Lose: Gabe Reid
    Gain: Greg Olsen

    Hmmm....tough one.

    Lose: Todd Johnson
    Gain: Adam Archuleta

    Todd is better than people give him credit for, but he's basically a poor man's Archuleta.

    Lose: Chris Harris
    Gain: Kevin Payne

    Harris is more proven so I'll give him the nod, but they appear to be basically the same player.

    Lose: Cameron Worrell
    Gain: Brandon McGowan

    Meh...draw.

    Lose: Justin Gage
    Gain: Devin Hester

    Technically we're losing Devin on defense but he never did anything anyway. He's obviously a much different player than Justin, but we never got anything out of him last year anyway so anything would be an improvement.

    Lose: Antonio Garay
    Gain: Dan Bazuin

    Although they play different positions, Bazuin is essentially taking the 4th DE spot, bumping Idonije to a 3rd down DT, and making Garay the odd man out. I think Bazuin could be one of those rookie IR additions (as could Wolfe) because they are already missing too much camp and neither sounds very ready to contribute this year.

    Lost: Anthony Oakley
    Gain: Josh Beekman

    I don't expect Beekman to play at all this year, but you gotta figure his upside is better than Oakley's.

    Lose: Leon Joe (or Rod Wilson)
    Gain: Michael Okwo

    All can play special teams, but Okwo looks to be the only one with potential to start, and I predict will beat out Jamar Williams next year in replacing Briggs.

What we need to do is resign him, and I question why we're giving 5 year contracts to guys like Darwin Walker when we haven't even resigned our own.

      But yes, I agree, the top two needs are easily OT and WR assuming Grossman does well enough and resigns. If not then it's QB first and the next two.
      Im not saying right now. But I think Bradley has potential to be the #1. He has the height, speed, and playmaking ability to be it. Maybe a bit like Donald Driver? I love berrian, and I hope that they both pan out well w/o injury this year

        I could see Bazuin being a rookie IR, but from what I have heard is that Wolfe has really impressed in camp so far, and there is no one else to take his spot.

          Wolfe has impressed? He's been sidelined since the first day of camp.

            oh yeah, as for the Draft, if Grossman preforms well enough and is resigned, then OT is our biggest need. If not, then QB will be our biggest need. Hopefully it won't be the later but rather the earlier. It would be nice to draft a LT with our first round pick, move Tait back over to RT, and cut Miller to free up some cap.

            Question is, if Grossman fails, do we sign the best QB in free agency and wait on drafting a QB, or do we go with Griese/Orton and draft a QB first round?

            As for Beekman, I think he could make an interesting battle at RG this season. But Garza will likely come out on top and Beekman and Metcalf will serve as the backup guards and center. My question is what about LG after Brown likely leaves next year? Garza, Metcalf, and Beekman are all pretty much RG's...

              actually if the OT pool is as deep as it should be id take a Safety first. then pick up an OT in the second.

              Whitney Mercilus will be a better and more productive player than Shea McClellin

                Safety is not a 1st round pick need. Even if Brown gets hurt again or Archuleta doesn't work out, it's too early to give up on Manning.

                  Roster is finalized. I was dead barring placing Bazuin on IR (which I had suspected similar to what they did with Dvorack last year) and replacing him with an extra linebacker (McGlover). I'd brag but it was pretty obvious since July what the roster was going to look like, only a few judgements calls.

                  As far as placing Bazuin on IR, I liked the move but would have prefered that they keep Mark Levoir as an extra OL that they could groom. Hopefully he'll clear waivers and want to come back on the practice squad.

                    • Too bad about Okwo, I was looking forward to seeing if he could contribute this year.

                            • Updated to reflect injuries (sigh)...I'm sure we'll call up Garay from the PS. Who knows about the other roster spot.

                                By the way, can you unsticky those threads? Some of them haven't been posted in months.
