don't worry about it, old sport

I think saying the randy staks signing is a good one is straight up ridiculous. I wouldnt give 2 million guaranteed, let alone 7 million guaranteed to a guy who hasnt done diddly poo his whole career. Not only has he been unmotivated and lazy his whole career, he gets purely dominated playing next to all-pros in haynesworth and vanden bosch. Its not like he was the focus of other teams, he wasnt double teamed, he just sucks. And if he cant get motivated under Washburn I doubt he'll get motivated under anyone else.

Bro...outside of you, everything thinks it's a decent signing and worth a shot. Just cause you don't like the guy doesn't mean he doesn't have potential to work out well for the reasonable contract he got.

the guy had a pretty good year in 2005 playing in a part time role at a very young age. He isn't even in his prime yet.

I think that Faneca is the best signing of the day, he could totally revamp their rushing game.

On the other hand, the Eagles are giving $20million guaranteed and $32 million in the first three years to a corner when they already have to solid starters.

Outside of me? Go ask any titans fan. We've been watching him play his whole career. It's not that I dont like him personally. Its that anyone whos actually watched him instead of just looking at statsknow the truth. DT is a pretty big need on the Titans and we still let him walk.

Samuel will now have to face Plax twice a year so I don't understand how the Eagles think that's a good matchup.

He's also going to have to face Owens, another big strong physical guy again a terrible matchup.

Wow just wow

I could quote every single post of yours in this thread and prove you wrong. Quite frankly I don't have the time nor do I really care that much, but I have to say something.

First off, trading Williams was a good move. Their is plenty of depth in the DT rotation. You are taking those injuries way too seriously. They will come back and be fine. Injuries happen, and players come back. Jolly and Cole will be just fine. I'm sure TT will add another DT in the draft as well.

Quote:
and for the record, i have always been supporting of both mccarthy and ted thompson being hired to their respective positions with the packers. i just find it hard for the packers to duplicate success when they stand pat, or trade good players away. not every draft pick is going to work out. i know ted thompson put alot of seattles talent together, but have they ever won a super bowl from it? the answer there is NO!
Are you sure you support them? Because you're sounding pretty negative throughout this thread. There is a damn good reason why Thompson is the GM and you're not. And yes, Thompson did put most of that Seattle team together and they have not won a SB. But how many times have they made the playoffs in the past few years? How often are they having losing seasons? They at least made it to the SB a few years ago. That's something that most teams can't say. You can't buy a Super Bowl. Thompson is doing it the right way.

What did you warrant Williams was worth? A first rounder? Yeah that isn't happening, EVER. Thompson isn't going to trade a young player for a veteran starter either. He always goes for draft picks. Williams wasn't even the starting DT at the beginning of the year, it was Jolly. We traded Mike McKenzie who was a Pro-Bowl CB for a second and a scrub QB. As much as I like Williams, he's not on the caliber of player that McKenzie was in GB. We got the best of this deal. Williams will be a solid starter, but so will Harrell.

You are just looking at names instead of the whole picture. Vilma didn't fit the Jets scheme anymore, making him expendable. Our depth made Williams expendable.

Considering Burress averaged 56 yards in the two games against the Pats, then Samuel's a better matchup than Sheppard or Brown right now.

And as for Owens, Lito has him on lockdown when he's healthy.

The facts are:

Corey Williams was traded for a 2nd rounder.
Greg Jennings, a 2nd rounder has 1500+ yards and 15 TDs in two years.
James Jones, a 3rd rounder had 600+ yards this year.

Everything else is opinion. Thanks for playing.

I bet you were really excited when we gave Cletidus Hunt that big contract...

Williams is a good player, but he is not leaps and bounds ahead of the rest of the DT's on our roster. I agree with what most of the people have said, that being I'm glad we traded him for a 2nd rather than paying him a lot of money to be a rotational player.

Favre4 is stating that Corey Williams was worth more than a 2nd round pick... does he honestly think he was worth a 1st round pick?!

not a chance; a 2nd round pick is great value for him.

If he comes back healthy and contributes every game, I am pretty sure they Jets would get a 2nd round pick unless I am mistaken. A lot better then getting nothing for him next year.

Low 2nd round pick. Considering he was tendered at 2 RD1 picks I think Cleveland did a good job.

IMO I think Faneca is losing a step and had a bad year considering it was a contract year. But I still think he might have been the best or one of the best signings this year. I know from last year how much Steinbach made Joe Thomas job easier. Faneca will do the same for Furguson.

Best move is the Bears resigning All Pro Lance Briggs at a very reasonable rate of $36 million for 6 six years with only $12 million gauranteed. Now the Bears have enough money to lock up Tommie Harris, Devin Hester and Robbie Gould while at the same time picking up some relative bargains like WR Bryant Johnson, and OG Maurice Williams in the second wave of FA. Angelo pulled off a masterpiece with this move.

Faneca didn't look as good because the Steelers line suffered alot of injuries. O-lines play as a unit and if one guy goes down, everyone else suffers as well.

The Faneca signing was just what the Jets needed... he'll elevate the play of everyone around him.

I don't understand anyone who says that Jenkins is oft-injured when he's been healthy the past two years. And so what if he was complaining... he was doing so because he cares about winning and was tired of seeing the team play crappy.

I hate to see the Jets give up that high 3rd but it's worth it when you can get a guy that should be able to play NT at a high level

@Favre4

Corey Williams has been inconsistent his whole career until recently. Also, until his injury, Jolly was arguably playing at the highest level of all the DT's on the team. With Pickett already entrenched, Cole and Jolly returning from injuries, Harrell waiting in the wings, and even Jenkins pitching in at times, Williams became expendable. And after Tommy Kelly got his ridiculous deal I bet TT couldn't pull the trigger fast enough knowing that Williams would warrant a similar amount of money. Considering we got more for Williams than the Jags and Lions got for Stroud and Rogers, I think we did pretty well.

As far as Harrell, first of all he was a rookie, and most importantly he was never 100% recovered from his injury in college. After a year of recovery and NFL level strength training he should be ready to have more of an impact this year. Anybody who saw him play at Tennessee should know how good this kid can be.

I don't understand anyone who says that Jenkins is oft-injured when he's been healthy the past two years. And so what if he was complaining... he was doing so because he cares about winning and was tired of seeing the team play crappy.

I hate to see the Jets give up that high 3rd but it's worth it when you can get a guy that should be able to play NT at a high level

yeah keep trying to support that faneca move

im a steelers man and i can tell you that faneca wasnt the same last year or this year...

he is def not the same player he was when he was 27

hes not worth that $, he is an upgrade for you all but he gets whipped pretty often...

theres a reason we let porter go, and theres a reason we let faneca go..
