pretty sad when you aspire to be average with a set group of players.

I don't think it is anyone's aspiration but after being group #32 out of 32 for a few years it is nice to sense some progress upwards.

well i am inspired because he is the equal to donnie edwards and we did not have to give up a pick. with the signings on the line and LB i am going to open a can worms here, i think it is a tooling for a 34. scott i know was listed a failure in the 34 but move him inside from the ends and team him with Danny to patrol the middle. This might work. The DT we have signed are hybred DT/DE types. hmmm

I am pretty excited about the Clark signing. The Raiders fans all seem to be upset by the loss.

While I really like the Clark signing, he is not Edwards' equal IMO. However, with the age difference, he is close enough to Edwards. Edwards is just light years ahead of him in pass coverage.

our defense has improved and we didnt give up anything for it. all i'm asking for at the moment is an improvement. i don't expect this team (offense or defense) to turn it all around in one year, but right now i think we're better than we were a few weeks ago. it's a work in progress and so far i like what payton is doing.

I think Clark is a guy who's going to offer this team a lot of toughness. He's led the Raiders for two seasons now in tackles with 230 something. He seems like a real hard nosed player who loves mixing it up, something none of our backers really like to do.

None of these give me that warm, fuzzy feeling inside.....especially Craft and Thomas. Thomas is no more than a serviceable nickleback. MM is a legitimate #2 corner. The jury is out on Deloatch and Groce on what they can do. Craft should just play back. I mean wayyyyyyyyy back. I mean wayyyyyyyyy back for an areana team. Our corners butter have plenty of butter with 'em, cuz they're gonna get toasted.
But who is available that would give you that warm fuzzy feeling?
Warfield???

Anyways, this will help our young players develop even more with a talented vet who has over 200 tackles in the last two seasons

Maybe, but he is one DUI or failed test away from a year long suspension. He has had multiple DUIs (not sure the French Quarter would be good for him. ).
