I'm not sold on Fairley... coming off back-to-back sub-par years I'm not getting too excited yet. Maybe he'll prove me wrong and come out hungry because he's on a one-year deal, but it looks like a pretty underwhelming move IMO and doesn't upgrade the unit.

Loomis & co. gave Byrd a monster contract that he's not even come close to living up to (not only has he been hurt, for a guy billed as a ballhawk, he's got one INT to his name in black and gold). Our cap numbers are so out of whack again, that we let Bush leave town, and we didn't have enough to sign anybody else. So yeah, I'm worried that we've got Byrd who is injury prone and virtually no depth.

Perhaps I am, but the buck stops with the GM, he's ultimately responsible for how the roster looks. And if his main job is to make the money work, he gets an F- from me the last few seasons for how poorly he's done that job. Again, having the most dead money in the league is squarely on Loomis.

Again, I hope they prove me wrong, but I just don't see a lot of upgrades to our roster from last year.

Graded (initially) the worst by 3 media. We will see.

I bet the season will show otherwise.

Seriously? We've upgraded several spots, and the draft isn't here yet. Our LBs are much improved even if we draft any.

JL + Anthony is better than Anthony + anyone from last year. Doesn't matter that he got 109 combined tackles last year with one arm...
