    I love Adalius Thomas as well, but he is already 8 years into his career. Don't spend big cap money on a player on the back half of his career. Plus, you will pay through the nose because of his versatility. All of the 3-4 teams are going to be gunning for him along with any 4-3 teams that need LB and Pass Rushing help.

    ginn runs latterally too much trying to break the big one. he'll get clobbered in the nfl doing that. give calvin johnson troy smith and see how much better his stats are.

    you've been saying this the past few week and i dont get it. bennett is gone after this season. givens has shown nothing. brandon jones, as much as i love him, hasnt shown he can stay healthy. wade has never been more than a #3 and williams and roby are nothing more than bodies.

    our problem the past 4 or 5 years has been we havent had a game breaker at WR. someone who can get big chunks on drives. it's hard to go 70-80 yards a drive when it takes 12-15 plays.

    Mario Manningham of Michigan has hands, size, and speed!
    I also like the S from Notre Dame with the wierd name. The one who boxes. He is one bad dude. Lets get him in the 2nd.

    If we can just sign Freeney, we can compete next year. We don't really NEED to draft a wr, but we don't have THAT many holes. IMO, take the best player available in the first round, and if we finish the year badly, that could very well be CJ. What we really need is a guard, center, FS (1st or 2nd round please), MLB, backup QB (free agency), and another CB. Center and guard can be had anywhere in the middle rounds. MLB and FS should be priorities for the first 3 rounds, but if there is someone on the board who is a special player, we definately don't pass on him just because we don't need him. If we can't get Freeney, we'll need to probably use our first rounder at that position to get a difference maker. I'm still not sold on any of the prospects at this point...

    Solidify the D immediatey with the money & we can be back as a contender in one swift offseason.

    Defence wins games, the O is developing okay as it is. Altough you can never have too many good linemen they need to be drafted. Free agent OL cost the earth.

    Ted Ginn is not the best WR on his own team. I like Gonzales a lot. Ginn does have great speed, though. The best WR is either Johnson or Jarrett. The Titans should draft neither of them. Other needs, such as DL, DB, and OL are far more pressing. RB is far from a need. Lendale and Henry are very good.

    Henry is one game away from a season long suspension. Chris Brown will be gone. Do you want Lendale "I pulled my hamstring getting out of bed" White as your only decent option? Neither do I.

    Alright, Ill be anyonbe that once Lendale White gets going as a starter and gets enough touches, he becomes a straight up monster, just like he was at USC
