  • Jarron Gilbert anyone? He got cut. Wow, after one year.

    Carp got cut. They were playing him at DE pre-season. That hand writing was on the wall the minute they asked him to switch (again). He needs to be a 4-3 SOLB FWIW.

    Would not mind Leinart instead of what we got as a backup. Maybe even Hunter Cantwell or Bomar. But I am sure that is controversial since folks seem to want "experience."

    I love Andre Brown if we could trade MBIII.

    Hartwig is interesting but too expensive I sense.

    Hardy WR is interesting if he could get healthy. I liked him years back and so did Jerruh.

    Dre Bly, Chevis Jackson or Nathan Vasher not bad bench CB.

    Anyone pick up on anything interesting for the team???

    • I'd take Dre Bly as my 4th corner in a heartbeat. That's legit.

      • Damn, after all that Gilbert love it looks like he's a bust.

        Bly, Jackson, or Vasher would be great as a 4th like Bob said. I'd rather take Vasher since he has been good before on returns.

          I'd go for the best ball hawk, a dude who would come in and get a pick. So yeah, i'll actually take Vasher. LOL remember his like 8 INT year and he made the pro-bowl... lol scrubs.

          • Jarron Gilbert cut? Bring him on. He's not a 4-3 DT. Total miscast.

            • I was very surprised to see Jamar Wall cut. Thoughts from those that have followed closely this preseason?

              • Wall looked okay, but not better than Gordon and McCann. He didn't outright suck rather than just get outplayed by better guys. He basically lived up to expectations for me, but the two guys ahead of him were simply better.

                • Pretty much what E said up there. He showed some flashes...I think he's good enough to warrant a roster spot somewhere. But I doubt anyone picks him up off the wire. There was a time early on, where he looked great and was making tons of plays in training camp. But as he said, Gordon and Mccann both played better and we didnt keep either of them, either. He could wind up on our practice squad. We already offered Mccann a spot, if he passes through waivers.

                  I actually think Wall should lose a little weight.

                  • McCann was claimed by the Ravens today. Looks like he's taking Prince Miller's spot. Does McCann have any potential to be excited about? Looks like we'll need a punt returner so I guess we'll try him there too.

                    • Ummm....he's pretty slight of frame, despite what he's listed at. But he's got excellent speed (4.3's) and as Dave Campo has said, he has great technique. But he can be bullied. I like how he runs kicks back. He never really broke any big gainers, aside from one nice punt return, but he shows good burst. He played well throughout the preseason...the biggest knock on him was just his size/strength. Campo loved his overall technique and effort out there. The guy has some potential, sucks to lose him.

                        That's true. I interviewed him at San Jose St. where he led the BCS for TFLs his sr. yr. & he said he was best "at a 5-technique." He needs a 4-3 to bring out his best.

                        He has an NFL pedigree, his father was a 6-7, 308 OT for the Saints before 300-pounders were normal.

                        I don't expect Jarron Gilbert to be unemployed for too long.

                        • So far...

                          Hate to see McCann get picked up because I thought he could do something here in the future. Good for him...............But I believe Church and McCray would have been picked up. I just saw Wall being picked up by Houston.

                          As for Gilbert......it was just one of those players who people just fall in love before the draft. Where are all those posters who bashed the cowboys for not drafting in back than.

                          Remember....a fan of the team not the players.

                          Dixon.....i think price has more potential than Dixon. Dixon will be a good serviceable DL men, but nothing more.

                          • Yup.

                            I didnt hear about the Wall pick up but...

                            Mccann = Ravens
                            Dixon = Jets
                            Wall = Texans
                            Siavii = Seahawks

                            Pretty damn interesting. Reflects well on our talent, though.

                            • Taking a quick look at our roster I think it's quite obvious that we've been good at drafting (or picking up undrafted players) in the last couple of years. Out of 53 players, only 10 were acquired through FA/trade.
                              Out of this 10 players 5 are offensive liners, that's 50%. Drafting quality OL has been a problem for us, we've solved this problem by picking up nice players such as Colombo, Kosier and Davis but it's something that, as you all said, we have to solve.
                              Anyway, since FA is still part of the game, I think we don't have a lot to complain about our recent drafts. I think we've done a very good job.

                                My Practice hopefuls:

                                Sharpe - More of a Thumper, but always good to have one of those
                                Miller - We might need a RB in the season or next year
                                Donaldson - see above
                                M. Johnson - WR next year...Hurd might or will be gone.
                                @#$@ -TE I can remember his name...we jsut cut him lazy to look.

                                and a couple of CB....I think.
