Re-read the 257 page Draft thread, or the 237 page mock draft thread, or the 212 page Jimmy Graham contract thread.

Of course its only about 3 or 4 people posting, but oh well.

That should keep you busy for about a week.

Also, review old game recordings. You can learn a lot. For instance...

1- Even though Roman Harper played great in coverage 90% of the time, the 2 or 3 games he made a bad play in apparently translates to "being abused constantly"

2- Getting hit by 3 defenders 2 yards behind the line of scrimmage facing 8 man fronts time and time again is apparently the RB's fault.

3- Grubbs getting knocked on his ass 3 times all season apparently means he gets run over all of the time.

4-Strief grading out as our best O-lineman for the entire season apparently means he's garbage.

5-Even though Ingram looked great and averaged over 4 YPC, its really just 2 YPC.

6-Even though we set NFL records year after year without Graham, its apparent that he's the reason for all of our offensive prowess.

7-Even though we have a top 3 QB and likely hall of famer throwing the ball and setting passing records left and right, apparently we must return to a power run game.

8-Even though most experts would agree we have a top 5 NFL team in terms of talent, apparently we have "glaring holes" at several positions.

9-Apparently if a position is not manned by a pro-bowl player, you have a glaring weakness (Roman Harper was the exception).

10-If you re-read the threads from last year, and a few before that, pertaining to Drews successor, this is probably Drews last year before he becomes a liability and must be replaced.

I was thinking the same thing but I didn't want to start a thread for my boredom

Re: Aaaaggghhh!

I'll take this over what we had to seasons ago, any day of the week. I'd rather be bored. I appreciate being bored so much more.

I think I will just continue to stare at a thread (or two) about a WR that we would't get in a million years. Or ten millions dollars.

You left out the trading trifecta....

It isn't, but it is another example of what people could do when bored.

Figure out what is missing on Dannos list of options to read about.

Hell brother, I'm going to start a poll asking if people think your list is 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50 percent complete

Sounds like your in a fighting mood.... Or at least a little miffed about some of the things you saw on tape.

I'll bite. 5 million dollar Harper even restructured or Kenny Vaccaro.... Um im takin Kenny.... It wasn't just Harper who the punishment was levied upon.

2- Getting hit by 3 defenders 2 yards behind the line of scrimmage facing 8 man fronts time and time again is apparently the RB's fault.
you will see massive improvement in that area with a Center who can push the pocket, and a healthy OL....

3- Grubbs getting knocked on his ass 3 times all season apparently means he gets run over all of the time.
Had a good season, but he could use a restructure.

5-Even though Ingram looked great and averaged over 4 YPC, its really just 2 YPC.
I feel the same way about Ingram that I feel about Meacham, and Robinson..... not enough production from where they were picked... I think that is more than fair. Lets for fun sake say Ingram breaks out like we all want him to. Cam and Ingram's rookie deals end next season. 1 will get big money and 1 wont. So I'll ask. Ingram or Jordan. In the event that it is Jordan and not Ingram what will you get once he hits the market....



7-Even though we have a top 3 QB and likely hall of famer throwing the ball and setting passing records left and right, apparently we must return to a power run game.
How bout we return to a power running game, or and actual running game during the season.... and let a fresher less arm stressed Brees takes us the rest of the way.... Your not ..... not throwing the ball as much as you are adding years on to that surgically repaired arm...

8-Even though most experts would agree we have a top 5 NFL team in terms of talent, apparently we have "glaring holes" at several positions.
Even the most talented team has holes... We need a Center.. A number 2 corner. We also need to figure out where our depth is on the OLine, and behind Junyah I would even grab Jonathan Goodwin while we figured it out.

9-Apparently if a position is not manned by a pro-bowl player, you have a glaring weakness (Roman Harper was the exception).
I can't wait for you to see him in a different uniform.... watch us exploit everything he does wrong... and then say he's a pro bowler....

You shouldn't throw stones if you live in a glass house, and if have a glass jaw you should watch your mouth..... cause I'll break your face!!! -50 cent
