Does Philly having the 2nd most cap room scare the hell outta anyone else, but myself?

Actually not as much as the rumors about the Vikings wanting to trade Moss.

Can you imagine what Mike Tice could do with another 1st round pick and all that cap space?

Is that after the franchise tag? Because, the Saints should have around $24m.

The Eagles having all that room doesn\'t worry me. They have had close to that for the past few years and done nothing with it. They choke in the NFC Championship game every year anyway.

Well, I\'d say you\'re wrong, considering that they just inked Kearse, but I\'m sure you\'ll go into a tirade about how that signing is irrelevant.

Well, provided Kearse is healed up properly, the Eagles are going to be formidable. I think it\'s a good signing when you have to play Coughlin, Gibbs and Parcells twice just to win the division.

If they do sign a free agent WR like TO or Jackson and draft a WR they could be the team to beat in the NFC.

I wonder if we\'re ever going to do anything in free agency? :(

I assume you mean this year?
We’ve brought in many quality free agents over the last several years.
Fred Thomas
Wayne Gandy
Victor Riley
Boo Williams (undrafted FA)
Ernie Conwell
David Sloan (although he busted)
Kendal Jacox
Jerome Pathon
Joe Horn
Fred Thomas
Jay Bellamy
Tebucky Jones
Ashley Ambrose
Aaron Brooks (although technically a trade)
Orlando Ruff
Derrick Rogers

Many of these guys we obtained dirt cheap, some we overpaid big time. But to imply we haven’t been active and relatively successful in the FA market is a doomerism.

OK Danno. The Saints need a starting caliber CB, and that\'s being nice. They need a serious impact player at MLB. They need a DT. From there, you\'re probably looking at another CB, and then OT, RB, WR, or whomever the best value is. Can we generally agree on the major needs? If so, what do you think the chances are that the Saints will sign quality impact players at those at least three main positions this offseason?

We can get that impact MLB in the draft, with Vilma.

Would it be rude to say: Vilma = Zach Thomas?

Even Zach Thomas would still be an upgrade, so I\'m not griping too loudly.
