    Ok

    A)Calm the **** down.

    B)I never said it was a horrible loss, I said it was comparable to the Bears losses, which had you read my post, I said were minimal at best.


    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

      The worst offseason has to be the Bills. I can understand letting Fletcher-Baker go as he's not a cover two linebacker but it blows my mind that they traded McGahee and let Clements go to the Niners. I know some Bills fans will argue that McGahee's average was 3.8 last year but that's as good as you can get with that joke of an offensive line. McGahee is going to kill with a line infront of him and it'll be even funnier when whoever the Bills put back there doesn't do jack. Compare this to the moves that the Patriots made and it's no wonder they haven't been to the playoffs since 1999.

        1. Rhodes - While he was the backup, he was critical in their running game having success and offering a different look from Joseph Addai. That said, not a tremendous loss, and certainly replaceable if they draft well.

        2. Reagor - LB and CB are more easily replaced for them. The reason he's here is for this factor - they had to likely add talent at the spot anyways. That said, loss of Reagor isn't make or break.

        3. June - Everyone always points to the next LB, due to the relative ease of the position in the scheme, but let's not underrate what he did there for them. He made plays. That said, as the season progresses, I think the impact of his loss will slowly disappear as Keiaho or Hagler get acclimated.

        4. Harper - Probably the best talent of the group, and a very underrated CB, but this was a position that they were deep in, with plenty of young guys showing flashes, and overall, the position isn't as significant as other areas.

          I really think Green Bay should have been in here, so much cap space, only one player.

              Great post as always Toonsterwu.

              My personal rank of the losses are:

              1. Reagor - Colts won the SB without him, but when he was healthy he was a very underrated player. Plus like you've said LBs and CBs are more easily replaced.

              2. Harper - This would be a bigger loss if it wasn't for the presence of Kelvin Hayden and Marlin Jackson (maybe Tim Jennings also). Colts should be fine at CB.

              3. Rhodes - He was GREAT in the playoffs and AWESOME in the SB. Still, the Colts have their franchise RB in Addai, and good platoon/backup TBs can be found in later rounds of the draft.

              4. June - He was a good Cover-2 WLB, but the Colts have lost good WLBs before (Peterson, Thornton) and were able to replace them. As you have already stated, Keiaho and Hagler could very well replace him.

                The only reason Bennett and Wade were the two top WR's in 2006 was because they were the healthiest - BJones wasn't 100% and Givens was out the whole year basically. The simple fact is when they were on the team, WR was still a very weak position - you don't spend big money bringing back the same players that made your WR position mediocre in the first place, that makes zero sense. I reckon you're better off having an obvious #1 WR need than spending starter money on average depth while still having a need for a #1 WR, but that's just me. From a pure depth and talent standpoint yeah, losing Bennett and Wade means the WR position is weaker, but the NFL is about smart salary decisions too.

                Oh and I think Harper would have been signed regardless of Pacman's incidents. I'm pretty sure GM Reinfeld stated CB as a need before any of it happened. This is because of the weak play of Hill as stated above by smittyjs.

                It hasn't been a great offseason for sure, what with Pacman and all, but it hasn't been bad, it just hasn't been great. I'd say the Titans' offseason ranks somewhere amongst all the other teams who have done very little.

                Once again, SI.com should stick to taking photos with their $250,000 Canon zoom lenses that they have two of and leave that tricky writing stuff to the other medias me thinks ;)

                  This guy is an idiot. Getting Kris Dielman to sign with us and for a discount was amazing, and he should wake up and realize that over half of our team is locked up through 2010, and our entire core of players will be here for a long time, and that we are in no cap trouble whatsoever. Honestly, this guy is friggin clueless. He raves about the Bears losing Rivera, and guess what, he is now a coach for the San Diego Chargers. This guy is stupid, we lost Marty Schottenheimer and now we had the 2nd worst offseason of all the teams in the NFL, bull crap. We still have the most talented roster in the league, PERIOD.

                      Not to mention most of these guys, had we kept marty, would say we made a mistake keeping him and we won't win because of that. Sometimes you just can't win.

                        The offseason isn't over yet. You just wait, the Pack is brewing somthing up.

                        What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                        they get smoked.

                          im suprised he didnt say the steelers since he obviously has a man crush on joey porter and how pittsburgh is stupid for lettin him go.


                          i dont like him andi havent even read that much that he wrote
                          i wouldnt take what he says to heart since obviously he really dont know what he is talking about

                          and for the browns to be in there is stuipd
                          i mean i hate hte browns just liek any other steeler fan but they had a good offseason
                          just becuase they have bad luck doesnt mean taht they had a horrible offseason

                          but hey its his opinion but its also him makin an ass outta himself

                            Browns

                            Got a new and better O-coordinator
                            Got Jamal Lewis>Reuben Droughns
                            Robaire Smith > Alvin McKinley
                            signed Eric Steinbach (best OL in FA)
                            managed to resign starter Hank Fraley.
                            signed backups (quality depth we never had) in Wright, Smith, Peek, etcc...)

                            Im pretty sure these moves can only make the Browns better, so how did we have a negative offseason?

                              What a total joke.

                              I thought this was supposed to be an article on the current offseason. What the hell do Couch, Brown, and Warren have to do with anything?

                              Winslow's motorcycle incident happened before his sophomore season, yet this idiot says it wiped out most of his rookie season. Way to brush up on your facts.

                              Amazing how this filth is actually published on a major sports outlet like SI.com.
