    • Great point by Adam Schefter: If BP isn't coming back, why is he bothering to go to the Senior Bowl?

        Aside from the good indications that BP is coming back, it's great that he's going to the Senior Bowl practices. He went in 2005, and our draft turned out well. He didn't go last year, and returns are a bit more cautious there. If he's wants buy the groceries then he damn well needs to go to the supermarket! :D

          Yep. I saw that. Adam is very reliable. The more he reports the more I like him. Mort doesn't deserve to lick the ground Schefter walks on.

            Nice find. That is a good point, too. Now I'm almost totally convinced that he's coming back.

              • I haven't been around much lately so pardon me if this has been posted before....

                I personally feel that Parcells is coming back (which I posted many months ago after Romo took over the reigns).

                I also wonder if anyone has watched the 'Americas Game #13 : 86 Giants' episode. If you have you'll be impressed. I also think that Parcells should show that 1 hr clip to all of his players this offseason. It was fantastic. It shows how much he really cares about his players and championships.

                Also, I think we do make a big splash in FA in the DB. I think that the only big name player we may sign in the offseason will be either a FS ( Ken Hamlin as an example) or at CB (Nate Clements, Asante Samuel, etc). I would be very surprised if we didn't go after a HUGE signing in the DB.

                There really aren't any other defensive FA's that I think fit our scheme that are top names. Maybe some mid level signings but nothing more on that side of the ball.

                Offensively, I think we sign a mid level OL or two. Nothing big, but we do sign some depth. I don't think we go out and sign a big name RB or WR or QB and certainly not TE. So the only place we really have money worth spending is in the DB. Why not give Asante Samuel or Nate Clements HUGE money?

                • I want either Ken Hamlin or Asante Samuel, depending on what we decide to do with Anthony Henry. I also think we adress guard in FA. Also some depth, so I don't see us going after a ton of big players, just two. That should save us some money.

                    Don't you think we're going after a high-profile guard such as Steinbach, Dockery or Dielman?

                    And is Hamlin a good cover guy?

                      I haven't had an opportunity to watch him alone personally, but I've heard that he is

                        Always love reading your posts. And yeah, now you know why I like Bill Parcells so much. He truely is a great coach. People forget that just last decade, he was the guy being compared to Lombardi, Bellichick learned everything he knows from Parcells. Being a Giants fan, I know about both of them very well and if I had to choose Bill Parcells in his prime vs Bellichick, I take Parcells no questions asked.

                        One thing if you notice though, he did lose alot of fire from his earlier years. The Dallas Parcells just doesn't have the same fire the younger BP had. Age obviously is a factor, but I think thats a contributing reason to why its taking him longer to succeed in Dallas than it did anywhere else.

                        If you look at Holmgren, he had the same problem with Seattle. I guess age is an underrated nuissance.

                        In terms of FA, what about Vonnie Holiday? He can play DE in the 3-4, and he's still got some juice left. He can be that insurance policy you need in the front 3 incase Spears doesn't get it and Hatcher doesn't develop into anything more than a situational rusher.

                        Terral Sands is also a name to look into. At 6 7", I doubt he has the leverage to play NT though. Not in the 3-4 at least.

                          Thanks. I do agree that age for a coach could be a factor that is overlooked. I can't say for certain that it is or isn't but certainly you could point to some examples that you could argue for.

                          As for Holliday, that would be a mid level or lower level signing so to me we might do that, but that's just normal roster churning so I don't think much of it.

                          As for Steinbach or another upper level Guard, we could go after one and I'd like it, but I'd rather go after an upper level C if there was one available and move Gurode back to RG / Backup RG.

                          I don't see many Top Notch FA's being available, and many teams have plenty of cap space so for any team to sign more than one FA will be a challenge. Asante Samuel and Nate Clements will sign rediculous contracts this year and will make Mike Vick type money, but it's not like any cap excess you have will carry over if you don't spend it. The key is to structure the deals so that you're not hamstrung by the contracts in years 3-5. I think most teams know this and that's why you'll see large Roster bonuses instead of signing bonuses. They will be structured alot like Half Signing bonus up front and 8 months later a large Roster bonus. So year 3+ the deal isn't that hard to get out from under.

                          I just think this year's FA class is sub par on the offensive side of the ball and people like Adalius Thomas will be SOOOO expensive that you can't afford them. You will only be able to sign 1 big name guy this year and if I had my choice it would be Clements or Samuel.

                          Hamlin isn't a great cover FS but he's not bad. He's More Ed Reed and Less Roy Williams. Hamlin was a phenomenal player in the SEC and I watched him alot as an LSU fan.

                              Just an observation. Just look back over the blog. Certain aliases do post in packs. 12:31, 12:32, 12:33, etc....... The chances are low they are logged in at the same time unless they are one in the same.

                              For an example of normal posting just look at the last two pages. Time stamps are spread out.
