If you knew?

it may be your opinion but it isn\'t the opinion of dozens of scouting reports. i don\'t have a problem with him. it is the front office... why do they have to stretch for picks, bullocks would have probably been available at #82, fincher in the 4th rd. why must they outsmart all the other experts? if they had a track record of success doing that would be one thing. it is exactly the opposite though. trading 2 #1\'s for a guy that was rated lower and that turns out not even making the active roster... i do not count sullivan so much the bum as i do the front office for stretching up to get a loser. the past two #2 picks also haven\'t been able to even crack the friggin active lineup. forget about being stars, forget about contributing at all... complete no-shows, like having drafted no one. then at the snd round they pick a free safety?! wasn\'t dwight smith da man they signed? makes ya scratch your head and ask not is the plan screwed up but is there a plan at all?

As far as the LBs we passed up in the 2nd. Fincher seems to be just as likely to be the man in the middle as any of those guys.

That\'s my opinion anyway.

More the man in the middle than Watson? I don\'t think so. I\'ve read people on here talking about moving Watson to outside, but I\'ve never heard a coach say anything about it. He has always played MLB and should stay there. He has more ability and a year under his belt compared to bringing in another rookie at the position.

I think we should have been looking at outside linebacker in free agency or the draft. I just don\'t get it.

Well, I guess I did forget about Levar Fisher.

I think passing on Burnett was plain stupid..we could have gotten the Safety bullocks in the fourth instead of lyman...that right there would have been the perfect draft...another option that I was hping for would have been micheal roos/barnes/terry to backup brown and gandy or to even start next year instead of gandy...

that ws the big miistake in my opinion...I think if they can sign ben wilkerson as a free agent then maybe, just maybe this will go from a C+ to a strong B in my book..but the above senario would\'ve been great....and hey so we loos bullocks (unlikely) we could have drafted shazor, adam seward, mcune, micheal boley, rian wallace, lance mitchell, ben emanuel, hawthorne, or wortham how all woud\'ve been equal picks and better than lyman-that is the two bad decisions in this draft, IMO
