Me too. He is the only one I can think of we can afford to lose that we could get some value for. I feel if we wait until this offseason we will wind up having to give him away for a stick of juicy fruit.

I have high hopes for Vaccaro, but I havent seen anything from him in real game time yet. Galette and Wilson are good as a tandem but neither an every down player. We lose one or the other and we are going to have problems.
Dude, while I don't disagree with the point of your post regarding the talent drop off on defense - don't sell these guys short...

Cam Jordan is moving back to a more familiar alignment which he excelled...

Akiem Hicks looks to be a great complement on the other side and should be cap friendly (not necessarily a discount) for years to come...

And Glenn Foster looks to be another surprise found in the UDFA pool of players...

Big John Jenkins is gonna learn from an already respected, established nose tackle in Brodrick Bunkley...

By all reports, we have an excellent acquisition in Keenan Lewis and Jabari Greer who's been a great corner for us (when healthy) is now leading, teaching three other talented backs in Patrick Robinson, Corey White and Rod Sweeting whom just have to learn to put it together...

Though I'm still miffed for not drafting Alec Ogletree who offered more value, by what we've seen Kenny Vaccaro should more than prove his value as a first round pick which we haven't had the best success in these past years...

The pessimism, concern comes from the void at outside linebacker and the misguided plan for that conversion to be lead Will Smith which even amateur fans could see was simply not going to work...

There are chinks in the armour, no doubt, but the groundwork has been laid to turn this thing around in so far as talent is concerned...

I can agree with that.

Re: Trade Candidates

Has any team ever successfully bartered fans for players? We have some fans on the bubble we don't need, but could use some depth on the field.

I'm not sure why some of the posters here feel it necessary to belittle and judge other people's opinions.
Please don't turn this site into that other site.


The season is finally here. Let's enjoy it.

I'm not sure either. Not sure why you are making requests of me.
