    This team just seems destined for 8-8 hell into perpetuity (or worse). We can never keep a roster of talented players because we're always mismanaging our salary cap. We overplay for mediocrity while legit talent keeps walking out the door.

    Hartline - he will probably have a 1000 yard season receiving. He would be a great #3 receiver if he doesnt ask for too much

    Starks - He needs to stay

    Fasano- Nice knowing you

    Long - Good luck, but I dont want him here anymore

    Smith -

    I guess I look at it this way what would make our team more complete today. OK 1st probaly is a stud pass rusher, followed by a number #1 WR and shut down CB and FS. So that gets us to the last pick of the 3rd round and guard and LB stick out IMO. Soo we are replacing Clemons, Gafney, Marshall and Odrick positions. Ordrick could be moved inside to replace Starks, Marshall could move to nickle or safty to replace Clemons and Gafney relased to be resigned if needed due to injuries. Clemons would fill in as a backup saftey. There is an issue with the WR positon on this team because it takes intelligence and talent to run it the way Sherman and Philbin are looking for. Proof look at Gafney and the time it took for him to learn it and in fact outside of Bess and Hartline most of our guys must not get it. The last game we won Moore threw the ball less on timing routes and more on players position to the ball. Hate to say it but in terms of a catchable ball I think Moore throws a better one than RT to his WR. RT throws a lazer and Moore a arch.

    Ok I haven't read every dam post but if Thomas is the starter next year imma flip. Now I know Bush isn't the best but signing him to a lower deal would work. he is a playmaker that a team needs . I bet he goes to the pats and we will pay as in the passing game he will kill us. we need to use him more fore passing down and he is so much more productive then Thomas with the same touches. feed bush 20 plus plays and he makes more chunk yards then neg plays..... plus the great Barry Sanders had ton of neg yardage plays but then would break a big one . give bush a shot, loosing him just opens up another hole on this team.....



    now if L. Miller becomes great off the nice runs he has had then I will love to be wrong. dunno if he is a great catching RB tho. I love pass catching RB so let's get bush going please. this last two games isn't all on him tho......



    I agree tho hartline and Starks must stay

    Looking into the crystal ball, here's how I think it plays out:

    Long - franchised. We have too many holes to fill in the draft to add LT to the list. We'll see how he plays during his franchise season and if he still struggles then we let him walk after that.

    Starks - wave bye bye. He's gone. Too expensive and we can kick Odrick inside fulltime where he belongs. We'll be drafting another DE is off season to add more depth to the line.

    Hartline - perfect #2 WR for this offense, he gets extended.

    Smith - wildcard. If the money's right, resign him as a #2 CB. If he comes in demanding top 10 CB money, put on the Colts game tape and then start negotiating with him. He WILL have a cap friendly contract or he can kick rocks. Let someone else try to coach the softness out of him.

    Bush - some what of a wildcard but most likely gone. If Bush will sign a cap friendly contract as a utility type reciever threat running back that he should be then by all means sign him back. Daniel Thomas has one more season after this one to develop any kind of running instinct before he gets cut.


    Most likely we'll be looking at the 2014 draft to get a new LT and RB. Thomas won't cut it and Miller isn't an every down back. Perhaps Long returns to his old self next season but I'm not holding my breath. The other big question is exactly how much cap room will we have for 2014 after Ireland screws up the 2013 off season.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    Anybody who says Tag Long is F**King crazy. NO WAY should he be paid $14 MIL next season. I do not see one fricking iota of logic behind this.

    Getting rid of players, who are not as good as what we would like, is one thing. Replacing them is another. So, who are we replacing all the players we are getting rid of? You knew there would be a catch in getting rid of players? No?

    Starks and Hartline are keepers. Sean Smith, as poorly as he plays sometimes is not exactly the worst corner in the league. He is worth keeping for the right price. He is not exactly a player that would be easily replaceable.
    I'm with you on that. Hartline can still excel with a true No.1 on the team. Starks is a good DT and Smith can be a good CB when he wants. I like Reggie Bush a lot but wouldn't be disappointed if he left.
