    ^ yeah, thats it.

    I understand where you are coming from, but i dont think signing the big names will make us that much better.

    And then there are otehr factors, like LeCharles Bentley, traditionally we dont sign Centers, we draft a late round lineman and use them, the coaching staff may like someone for it, like Amano (or Amato whichever) or god forbid they might resign Hartwig.

    Plus our offense free agents havent worked out too well so I can see us being weary about who we sign and whether they will fit.

    We build through the draft and I think Reese and co will stick to that, but will sign a name free agent, maybe 2, but we wont be out there buying everyone or trying to.

    Reese will be doing his best not to put us back in cap hell.

    I hate to "complain" (not really), but one way you get in cap hell by having and keeping (paying) good players. That's what we did. Then there is the Redskins. When is Washington going to start feeling the heat of cap hell? and the Colts?

    Colts are beginning...and there is something going on with the skins i believe. I think the CBA did something to stop what the Redskins do.

    Yes, the new CBA limits "cash over the cap". Basically, there's only so much real money a team can spend on players in a given season now, regardless of cap hit.

    I would really hate to see you guys get David Thornton. He is a solid player who is seldom injured. His natural position is weak side LB but the Colts have had him at stong side for the past two years. Just thinking about seeing him in that ugly Columbia Blue makes me ill.

    Check out his bio. He was a walk on at North Carolina and voted Defensive MVP over players like DE Julius Peppers and DT.

    I'll try and get you a link.

    How is Thornton no better then Sirmon? He has speed... ha

    He seems really good in coverage and a compliment to Bulluck is sorely needed. Not necessarily someone his caliber skill wise but someone who can play... and Thornton can
