I'd say money well spent on the Byrd man.

Re: Free agents 2014

i agree this is an upgrade but i am going to stress Byrd is coming from a Division that had revolving doors at QB in all the teams locker rooms except New England. The mistakes or bad throws will not be as many so the INT's will be a bit harder to get.

Be interesting to see how he handles it, but he did play pretty well against Drew last year

Falcons' Matt Ryan, Panthers' Sham Newton, Tampa Bay's Player to be Announced - I like his chances...

My concern is the numbers - but on paper, it's looking pretty darn good...

I love his game. read diagnoses with the best of them

just saying you have to have solid CB play and the biggest thing is a pass rush up the middle. something we lack

pats did every thing they could to get speed one on one against byrd. go after him deep is a safer bet than in front of him.

i am expecting the INT to drop a bit and him to get burnt a bit more in this division.

but in the end we will all be happy with the signing.

i think?

i hope?

he is an upgrade

Definitely an upgrade; definitely the biggest splash in Free Agency this year even if the GroupThinkTalkingHeadCollective doesn't give the Saints and Loomis their due...

Am really excited to move on from the disaster that was

I am often critical of Loomis; and while I question the numbers committed, also realize it took those to get him to take the cap allowable number this season to get him here (pay to play)...

The Strief signing seemed an inevitable, safe move; would've preferred a younger, faster right tackle, but it is what it is...

Re: Free agents 2014

We don't need a younger, faster RT just a healthy Strief.

Besides, Graham's contract will need to be finalized before we have enough sweet moolah to start signing rookies!

Does that mean our UDFA class will be smaller??
