    I don’t understand all the hate for Trevor Scott.

    Scott may not be great against the run, but he is a solid pass rusher and that is what are defensive system is based off of.

    Raidertbone….dont u know Grad brought energy and fire to the team? He was accurate,mobile and was able to go thru all of his progressions. He gave us best chance to win….didnt u notice he started and finished games that led in victories?

  • Bauce Rules

    I know…I can’t miss the dam HOME OPENER!!! But I will be there August 28th! Sunday night against the Saints!

    I guess the player I wouldn’t mind getting cut is Nick Miller. I was high on him last year, but now he’s much more expendable.

    Cromartie is a bad azz and easily fills Nnamdi’s shoes. Maybe better IMO and locks up the number one WR all over the field. Landry for huff. Heap for Miller and all FA wholes filled.

    I think Nnamdi’s value is overvalued considering his pay and influence on the entire game. Also, other FA CBs out there bring down his value even further. We might gay him back after all the talkings finished.
