Angry Rant ( Free Agency Edition )
 
Okay so maybe I don't fully comprehend how much we are able to do with Brees contract hogging up much needed cap space but COME ON !!!

The Falcons have reloaded with some dangerous additions to a team that was already 13 -3

The Bucs are retooling after a near miss on the post season

Cams got some help after a near miss on the post season

What are we waiting for ? Charles Woodson , James Harrison , Nnamdi , somebody !!!

We can't just keep turning our smug noses up at players were getting smoked on free agency even worse in our own division which was hard enough to win ...

If nothing comes of free agency We better be grabbing some dynamic players like Tyrann or someone that can tackle

Your way off base. I do not quite understand your need for the Saints to just go out and sign "somebody". Those teams are playing catch up.. Something we do not need to do. Furthermore this seasons cap issues are not solely on Drew, Drews production vs $ far exceeds the production from Smith/harper/


Free agency is not a competition.

With only 3 million in cap space, you don't go out and just start signing people. We have to be smart about it and not over-pay; ie. Nnamdi... He either signs or the 49ers over-pay for his services

We do not have the cap space to fight bidding wars :rolleyes:

Some people are not concerned with "value" based decisions.

We replaced our Defensive Coordinator and DB coach
We're switching from a 4-3 to a 3-4, which fits our personnel better
We signed the top CB in free agency
Our top players on defense are all young and ascending
We're getting our Head Coach back
We stockpiled a lot of young talent last year by stashing many on IR
We restructured a lot of players in order to upgrade elsewhere
We're still looking at CB/OT/LB.

Its also only the 3rd week of free agency. The leverage is now swinging away from free agents and toward teams. Good role players will come a lot cheaper over the next few months.

I'll say it again, remember to breathe. There's hours left before the season starts.

I'm not worried about winning free agency...
Look what happened to the Eagles

On the D side of the ball we will see a huge improvement with much of the same people in a 3-4 scheme...I think the only real issue we have right now is finding a LT..whether free agency or trying to risk it in the draft

Yes but we haven't signed any names worth ESPN giving us the front cover... LOL

That is what really matters.
