    we can also go 3-4 if we decide it’s much cheaper paying for a decent OLB than a hard-to-find 7 sack DE.

  • Rico Stifler

    I’d use part of the money that would have been used to re-sign Houston to bring in Jared Allen. Then I’d sign Hardy or Michael Johnson. Imagine having Allen on one side and Hardy/Johnson on the other…

    I’d also consider Brian Orakpo over Jared Allen, depending on what his contract demands are considering he can be a good DE/OLB hybrid….

  • willy91137

    Is Jared Allen the free agent?

  • Rico Stifler

    I’d also consider giving Orakpo a long-term deal over signing Jared Allen, depending on what his contracts demands are…

  • rifflicks

    no he’ll want a lot of money

  • Alex7

    yeah, if it was a random bad day, that wouldn’t have mattered much. But they set out to contain him in the pocket, and the weather was wet, so you hope it didn’t magnify his weaknesses.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Yeah, the problem with him is the question of maturity.

  • Rico Stifler

    Yea, he will be a FA after this season. The Vikings are not expected to re-sign him cuz they are trying to get a deal done with DE Everson Griffen.

  • rifflicks

    I can’t see Tarver and Allen changing from a
    4-3 base defense

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Houston is an odd duck. He’s good but not great. Doesn’t really fit at any position. He’s lost a lot of weight and is now closer to 280 than 300. Not a good pass rusher. No way is he a franchise guy. If he leaves, we need two DEs instead of 1.

  • jumpnjiminy

    But I wouldn’t include Rivers in the ‘great ones’ group.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    There are always exceptions how are you Alex

  • Rico Stifler

    He won’t be cheap, but it’s not a big deal considering he’d only get a 2 year deal or so.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    Yeah if that is the case then he is a worse QB than originally thought.

    Do you think he a a star in this league or do you think he just had one good year?

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Our major needs, beyond depth:

    QB?
    DE
    WR?
    FS
    LG

  • rifflicks

    Defensive Line and WR

  • Rico Stifler

    Draft Carr
    Sign Hardy/Johnson or both
    Sign Eric Decker and Jeremy Maclin
    Sign TJ Ward
    Sign OC Alex Mack and move Wiz to LG

  • seymour bush

    Exactly.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    DE for sure. I like our DTs pretty well.

    As for WR, Moore was on pace for 1k and streater may get there. I’d like a 1st round talent there too but I’m more concerned with pass rush and possibly qb, depending on how McG finishes.

  • rifflicks

    NO QB in this draft…not a priority

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    you say that like its a bad thing….

  • the authoritative dr robert

    I think we will be doing something unprecedented in the nfl.

    With so much cap room and so many FAs, we have a chance to shape the team exactly how we want.

    The draft is necessary to build but we can add the guys we should have had all this time.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    You mean Reggie has a chance to shape the team the way “He” wants

  • Rico Stifler

    Yeah, we can sign anyone that we want. We could even sign like the 5 biggest names in FA if we can structure their contracts right.

  • Rico Stifler

    I’d also like to use the 2nd round pick on RB Lache Seastrunk or DE/OLB Vic Beasley if he falls….

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    What if Reggie signs a guy you don’t like?

  • tuckrulefool

    Lamarr Houston- If you are RM do you make him an offer and if so how much per year and for how many years?

    Part 2: If offered, do you think what RM throws out there will or will not entice 99 to stay?

  • Rico Stifler

    Like who? I can’t think of any player that I’d hate to sign in FA

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    Hakeem Knicks

  • Rico Stifler

    Looks like DMC could be IRed….

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    I think he grew a vagina

  • tuckrulefool

    N OL? really?

    G is super weak..

    ahh sorry LG didn’tt see that..id go RG too

  • Rico Stifler

    It depends on what the deal is. Nicks can be a good WR, he is just injury-prone.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    What if Reggie drafts Manziel what would you do?

  • Rico Stifler

    i’d throw up and punch someone in the face..

  • Rico Stifler

    YOu don’t see how LG is on the list?

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    At the same time?

  • Rico Stifler

    Also, Brisiel has been very solid this season. Finding a LG is a must or getting a good center (Alex Mack) and then moving Wiz back to LG could be a good move also.

  • Rico Stifler

    Probably… I will hate-spew on someone then knock them out….

  • Back-N-Black

    What about Seahawks FA DE Michael Bennett? 9 sacks last year and 7 so far this year. Might be a good pickup…

  • the authoritative dr robert

    So long suck face.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    We should be major players with all FAs.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Well no. He really needs to listen to me.

  • Rico Stifler

    He’d be a solid addition at DE. He has 6.5 sacks this year.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    Yeah but brisiel has played pretty well so it’s not as pressing.

  • Back-N-Black

    yeah, I rounded up.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    If McG plays well. If he starts to struggle, gulp.

  • Rico Stifler

    We could let Houston walk and sign Bennett and Hardy/Johnson… Bennett might be cheaper or cost the same as Houston and he is a better pass rusher.

  • seymour bush

    Lamar Houston has been a B+ to A- player his entire career. He is a high motor guy which you have to like. Is he worth breaking the bank over? Probably not. But if you have other solid Dline players would Houston be better? Absolutely.

  • Rico Stifler

    Yeah, I expect us to be.. If Graham hits FA, he should be priority #1 to sign. Then on to Hardy/Johnson and Bennett. Then on to Decker, Maclin and OC Alex Mack.
