    Really, all we need is an elite guy in the secondary to hold things together along with another solid veteran safety to round things out, and then a couple quality guys on the offensive line.
    I just don't see the makings of anything close to "elite" with the guys we have now. The ONLY guy we have who has been consistant at getting to the ball is Ware. Spencer was only great for about 8 games last year, and has reverted back to his pre 2009 form. I don't think we can go into next year hoping that it gets better.

    To me, I realize we need a FS and a CB badly, but we can't afford to ignore the front 7. In addition to the lack of pass rush, James and Brooking just aren't getting it done inside, so there's a need for an extra inside backer to compliment Lee.

      Does head to head match up have anything to do with draft order, or that only applies to making the playoffs?
      I think it's just record and opponent's win-loss record in the event of a tie. The team with the lower opponent win-loss record gets the higher pick in a tie.

        They determine it on Strength of Schedule (combined opp. winning %), head to head match ups don't count.

          A lot of what we do in the front 7 will determine on who our new DC is. It has been discussed in here, the possibility of a 4-3, and we very well could make that switch.

          If we go 4-3 Da'Quan Bowers becomes an option, and maybe the only front 7 option (not sure if Robert Quinn can play LE in a 4-3). To me, Fairley is strictly a 3-tech in the 43 and we already have Ratliff who could excell in that role. If we stick with the 3-4 I think we could go either Quinn (OLB) or Fairley(5-tech).

          I'm no mentioning Dareus because I feel like his stock will fall out of the top 10 by April, we really underperformed this year and for a 5-tech the value is not there.

          However with that said, I take Peterson 10 out of 10 times over all of those guys. Plug him in at FS and watch an all-pro grow before your eyes. When's the last time we had a playmaker like that in our secondary? Never.

            Carolina 2-13 559 Franchise QB
            Denver 4-11 507 I don't think they take the CB...they go DL
            Cincy 4-11 570 WR, but to many inexp. WR on roster. DL possib
            Buff 4-11 576 DL or LB....maybe WR...
            Ariz 5-10 464 Not DB...LB or DE
            SF 5-10 505 They need a QB....
            Dallas 5-10 509 At least one of the Top CB we be on Board...
            HOuston 5-10 527
            Minn 5-10 545
            Det 5-10 561
            Cleveland 5-10 565

            I think this is updated. I used ESPN Playoff page and am assuming MINN loses on Tuesday.

              I think the wildcard in all of this is if Luck comes out or not. If he comes out then we get Peterson. If he stays then I will punt babies into a wood chipper.

              • King for Si just was quoted as saying he thinks Luck with stay for his Senior Year............

                As long as we get a CB or a Safety I will be happy. The problem is that if we take the CB in round 1 we won't take a Safety in round 2 because that would kind of be waste of having two top picks.

                I wouldn't mind a DL and than the Safety

                I wouldn't mind the CB and than the OL

                  • 1/2 Right

                    If and when Ariz and SF play one will still have a lower SOS. I don't think we can jump both of them.

                    • ari/SF play eachother. One goes ahead of us and one gets to 6 wins

                      • U are rigt!!

                        That would be correct.....I guess u have more hope than I do in seeing those games turn out like that.

                        We can only hope for that.......................

                        • As it looks right now, we should be able to get our hands on either Prince or PP, knock on wood.

                          Now, let's hope jerry pick's them.

                          If Luck dominates in his bowl game, I don't see why he doesn't come out. He will be #1 overall, top 3 at worst if carolina believes in jimmy clausen.

                          No point in staying, plus harbaugh could be leaving.

                            Loved the loss on Christmas Day, but the fact that some crappy teams won today makes the loss even better! Woo hoo!!!

                            • Just for fun

                              Pick a combination of two players u would be happy with the Cowboys drafting.

                              1. Patrick Peterson
                              2. Nate Solder

                                If Dallas wins the Super Bowl, which I cannot even fathom but let's just roll with it, then it will not be BECAUSE of Wade. It will be IN SPITE of Wade. He is a coach who has consistently put a team on the field that plays with a lack of heart, a lack of intensity, a lack of discipline and a lack of intelligence. They will often have one or two of the four, but have never had all 4 at the same time in his entire tenure. Even now, with this team playing as well as its played this entire decade, you have seen blown coverages on a regular basis. For as much as Thumper and Superman (wtfever his handle was) were laughed at, they had a point. In that last regular season game we had regular breakdowns in coverage over the middle. Its a CHRONIC issue with this team, and nothing has ever been done about it. The entire middle of our defense is like a soft Jello pudding pop in coverage. We constantly shoot ourselves in the foot with procedure penalties. We get beaten IN AREAS OF STRENGTH. Going into a game you often find yourself thinking that there is no way X will happen because we are so good, and then there you see X happening all through the game.

                                Its like a crazy person is running our team. We have nothing bankable that we can ride when things get tough. Mostly, its just painfully obvious that something is missing. Call it "toughness", "heart", "discipline" whatever you want to, SOMETHING isn't there that needs to be, and its a regular thing.

                                So lets say we win it all.

                                Now Wade deserves carte blanche? Now all the ineptitude, incompetence and lack of general sharpness in execution and preparation is suddenly OK? **** no. Not by me its not. And then, after a particularly egregious mistake by one of our coddled players, the camera cuts to Wade and there he is like a psych patient in the cafeteria wondering where his jelly filled donut went with a look of utmost confusion. I can't take it.

                                If we win it, it will be the result of things coming together at the best possible time and our team taking advantage. Much like the 07 Giants, who weren't even a top 10 team that year, let alone the best, or the 05 Steelers or 01 Pats. I don't want to spend the next three years after this wading through crap to pay for one SB win. I want to build a team that, going into every season, is a team that everyone says "if we want to win the SB, we're going to have to go through them." Winning a SB in a year like that is when the SB really means something. These teams this decade, the Giants, the Steelers, the Cards (NFC wise) and such, they can't look back and say "everyone was gunning for us and we rebuffed every challenger." No, they sneaked in the back door and their story is one of the underdog getting a few breaks and persevering to eek it out. I don't want that. It's not satisfying. Because you have the moment and its gone. You can't say you were the best team that year, because its not true. The Giants were a pincushion for much of 2007. They were beaten up and beaten down, at times by teams who weren't even good themselves. So they got hot in the playoffs, big whup.

                                I want to be able to look back on a season like I look back on 1993. Every team was gunning for us, the whole effing league hated us and yet they couldn't do a damn. thing. about. it. They were defenseless against our superiority. That's the type of year I want. I want the regular season crown and the playoff crown. Only by doing that can you truly say you were the greatest NFL team in the world at that point in time. The rest is just a function of Right Place, Right Time syndrome.

                                That will not happen under Wade. There is no question in my mind. This team has good enough players that, with the proper leadership and direction, they could be there as soon as next year. We have a special opportunity right in front of us, but Wade has to go for us to get there.

                                The alternative? "Pretty good"


                                I guess you have to ask yourself if that's good enough.
                                Not sure if anyone has pointed this out, but all your posts IMMEDIATElY after beating Philly last year were right on the money.

                                This was my personal favorite: "And just an FYI, I waited 2 1/2 years before making the call on Wade Phillips, even though I hated the hire the moment it came down. I was patient and optimistic. I took a lot of convincing. But once I'm there, a little perfume sprinkled on the pig isn't going to take the stink out of my nostrils."

                                I'm coming back to hit you up for my fantasy football draft next year...
