The "No Plan" was mentioned by another member who claimed to have two sources in the front office who confirmed there was no rhyme or reason to the choices made during the draft. Not my thoughts.

(My use of the term "another member" doesn't mean you.......)

Uhhh, yeah right.

The front office is actually gonna say "We don't really have a plan we're just cutting and re-signing players for the fun of it to make it look like we know what we're doing"

Seriously?

That "other member" is an idiot. And not just a back-up idiot or a rotational idiot, but an all-pro idiot.

Bingo. They definitely have a plan. It just isn't a very good one. I get told, and we all get told that these guys are smarter than us and that we we're stupid if we think we understand what goes on. But it actually takes a dumb person to not see something this obvious. We can hope that lessons have been learned and that we can rebuild. But the fact that we're even in rebuild mode with all the money spent is a testament to just how badly the front office has misfired.

I don't sit in on any meetings with the president, the congress or the senate. But I can tell you we're in a deep recession. How did I know that?.... Who DOESN'T? And the same goes for this situation our team is in. You don't have to know everything to see the obvious.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I didn't see any of the game. Was it a heartless performance like last year or is there an effort there?

I thought there were great effort. A lot of being close but not putting it all together.

If anything it shows they do indeed have a plan and stick to it every week.

If Jones and Opurum clear waivers, they're likely back on the practice squad.
And they are... Good call Danno! You're the bomb!!!


Practice squad additions today...

Brate, Cameron - TE Harvard
Darby, Alden - DB Arizona State
Jones, Seantavius - WR Valdosta State
Opurum, Toben - RB Kansas

Witzmann, Bryan - T South Dakota State
