I'd hate to see us let Brian Young go.

I have a good story on what kind of player he is.

I was bartending on Bourbon before Katrina. It was either a Friday or Saturday right before the hurricane. Him and a few other guys that I didn't recognize came in. They got some drinks and Young asked to use the bathroom. We had closed it at the time just cause we didn't feel like dealing with letting people in. I knew who he was, he seemed like a good guy (and he tipped well ) so I figured I'd let him in. This was after he had hurt his knee and was supposed to not play in the next pre-season game. I asked him how the knee was. He said there was something (can't remember) torn in there. I asked how many games he was going to miss. He looked at me like I was crazy, and said none. I said, "Dude, rest it. We don't need you to miss any games in the regular season." He said he couldn't. That he loves to play and just can't sit out. I said he ought to think about his career, and not jeopardize it in a pre-season game. He said he doesn't play for the money.

As many guys that are just out there to cash their checks, he's not one of them. He's going to give you everything he's got.

it suprises me the buccs haven't come up. booger and rice instantly give you cred, spires is starting to show his age, but if hovan can continue to progress back to his old form, this could be a dangerous line, and they also have good depth at the ends.
Ed Hartwell? Lawyer Malloy? Hartwell and his tree trunk legs will plug up many holes for the Falcons, and Malloy is a hitter at safety who has always played the run well. Add to that they got Jimmy Williams at conrer who is another good tckler, and I think they have the players to hide being smallish in the middle. That's why I think they were brought up.

I know I should look it up, but didn't the Panthers let a CB go to Chicago who is now going to jail? Looks like they are going to have the best D-Line. Is Grady Jackson still available? Also, does Fields still play? I need to do some Panthers homework, but I'm in a rush. I think we'll keep Young to back up Hollis. We could use another veteran DT for a 1 or 2 year contract until we cna FA or draft some younger talent. Ted Washington helped out a lot in New England.

Panthers hand down. Followed by Atlanta, Tampa then us.
Panther's DL can make up for any short comings the LB and secondary may have. They have to lead the NFL in pressuring the QB to throw. It is a tough line to run against too. they do not get pushed around.

Saints will have the best Safeties in the NFL this year I bet.

Probably should have mentioned I was talking DLine, since that came up earlier.

The waiting drove me mad....
I don't want to hear from those that know...
Everything has changed, absolutely nothing's changed


Eddie is a....draftnik?

Even if you were, having Hartwell and Malloy will help them lower that 4.7 YPC, helping their D-line.

i'm not trying to take anything away from their team, they are loaded with talent, just found it strange the buccs didn't come up. maybe i overrate simeon rice.
