    Baker Recruiting Von Miller and OBJ

    Neither one of them fits our team. Let's just find our own guys.

    Pro pick'em league

    Hey guys, how about a link to the pro pick'em league. I thought I had registered for it, but apparently not as it's not showing up om "my teams" Thanks
  3. No doubt. After you peel the meat, toss the shells back in to the water to cook the pasta. I should have added that earlier.

    Gerald McCoy

    The key will be what we do in free agency. That is purely filling needs. It would be nice to check off a few needs so we can enter the draft with the mind we are going to draft the best players and not worry much about what position they play with a few exceptions. Obviously we aren't going to draft a QB or RB high in the draft. We may end up drafting one or both positions, but it will be the 4th round before much consideration is given to those positions. My feeling is we have real needs at DT, LB, safety, and maybe OT. I don't see receiver as a big need. That is assuming we get Higgins and Perriman signed. At least one of them. I liked Willies. He has great speed and offers a big target. I think he will breakout next season. He can stretch the field as can Callaway. We also have to consider we now have a QB who can throw guys open. Lets fill a few needs in FA to open up the possibilities of the draft. Needs still play a role in the draft process. Once you get past the top of the draft players, the player ratings start to bunch up. You usually don't have one player who is clearly the best on the board. You might have 3-4 guys rated pretty much the same. At that point you might allow needs to dictate the pick. It's going to be fun to watch this thing unfold!
  5. Basically, you are correct. It's best to boil your own lobster, then use the water you boiled the lobster in to boil your pasta. Otherwise, just tossing some lobster meat in the mac and cheese is somewhat bland. It tastes like mac and cheese with some lobster in it. Don't toss that lobster water down the drain. Reserve it after cooking to use if you need to thin out the dish a bit.

    I'd like him as well but I would say there is little chance the falcons don't keep him one way or another.

    Freddie's Staff searches

    I agree. I want to see turnover in the asst. ranks as long as we aren't just firing guys like hue did. If other teams are hiring your guys to head coaching positions, it mean you are winning games.

    Who is the bigger idiot

    Just to thrown in my 2ยข, assuming a player could have a equal type career as a player, in other words, not marginal in one and really good in the other, the smart move would be to play baseball. You have a much longer time before your playing window closes, and the injury factor is greatly reduced. If I could be a pro player in any sport, it would be golf. They can set their schedule and take off any week they want and can still be playing for big bucks until they are 60 or so. That's a 40 year playing career.

    Freddie's Staff searches

    cNo reason at all that he can't. I guess one way to look at it is they had higher expectations last year then many of us did, especially once Hue was canned. Not that firing Hue was a bad thing. It's just that it usually doesn't work out well once you go to a interim coach mid season.

    I agree with the thought people jump on the bandwagon to further their careers. We would all do that. What I like is the way Kitchens has set this up. On both O and D, those coordinators will be high interest guys for head coaching positions. What I like is we have other guys in place to take over. Kitchens like Lindley. I could see him stepping in to the OC role when Monken moves on. On D, if Wilkes moves on, the hiring of Chris Jones looks to be the insurance on that side of the ball.

    Browns Owner screwing it up again

    or maybe they said it was a person that need to be considered. I don't see Depo as a decision maker.. He may be a decision breaker. I see it as he said here is another option we might need to look at. In the end, Dorsey said that everybody was in agreement

    Browns hire OC Todd Monken

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Freddie is the HC now. This new guy is well respected as a play caller. There is a good chance Freddie won't be calling the plays on a regular basis.

    *SOURCE* Brian Flores will be our next HC

    Ballpeen knows all....ok, I don't. I just knew about that. It's been that way for a few years now. It may seem unfair, but overall I like the rule. Teams can retain players. Why not be able to retain coaching talent?

    I guess that didn't work out.

    Yes. The team has to grant permission.

    There are enough that we probably don't need to move up, but who knows?

    I will miss Gregg. I hope he finds much success.

    GREG WILLIAMS OUT

    For the record, we have this discussion every year, any position that isn't the head coach position is considered a lateral move. You can be the flunky donut runner and not be given permission to be a coordinator.

    Cleaning House

    True, and Saturday would be a good choice. My feeling is the guys who take a head coaching position with a HS are looking to grab a college job...maybe step right in as a head coach and a mid sized school. They aren't going to go straight to OSU or Florida, but they could find their way to a Appy State or Furman.

    That may be. I was just responding to a question and mentioned Schwartz, who I like.

    They said leading the search. Leading implies that others would be following the lead.

    Browns Owner screwing it up again

    Maybe none at all, but he is a trusted, reasoned voice. How do you know he is a waste of salary, plus, you aren't paying him, so what do you care?
