QB wise, I woudnt go after Hasselbeck because he's 33 years old and has a back injury. If signing Holt doesnt make any sense then neither does signing Hasselbeck. I would keep Smith regardless and have Hill as the starter going into 2009. I wouldnt mind SF going after Cassel if he's a UFA but we would have to get McDaniels to be our OC because otherwise, he'll have to learn a new offense and that wont help us at all. Basically, it would either be them together or nothing. I dont care what QB is in the draft, no way in hell should we draft one at number 10. Not only will that QB want more money than what the slot is worth, it will show that drafting Smith was a failure even though I have to admit that Nolan screwed him up more than not having consistency at OC. Plus, the rookie QB will have to learn the system and who knows how long that would take. Granted, they may be tempted because of the success of Ryan and Flacco but just because they worked out for their respective teams doesnt mean that the same thing will work out for us. I do agree with bringing back Garcia as the veteran backup but no way would I start him over Hill.
FA wise, I wouldnt mind getting Jordan Gross but no way in hell do I want Haynesworth. Trust me, once he cashes in, he'll go back to being a bust. Few DT's have been as good after getting paid as they were in their contract year. Haynesworth had five years where he was a bust and two good years but only because both 2007 and 2008 have been contract years. Sorry, he would be a huge waste of money and cap room. People bash me fr wanting to spend a huge amount of money on several players but at least the players I want have been consistent year in and year out.
My targets remain the same - DE / OLB Terrell Suggs and OLB / ILB Karlos Dansby. Other players im hoping for are RB Darren Sproles and even though he may miss 2009, I wold probably try to get the Bengals RT Stacy Andrews because he'll be cheap since he's coming off an injury and while he may not be 100% for 2009, he will be for 2010.
Draft wise, it all depends on who we sign in FA even though I want Malcolm Jenkins the most because if he somehow falls to the tenth spot, he'll be a steal where as others may be a reach.
