    If we want the deep threat we desperately need, we'll have to pay for it.
    And Vincent Jackson did so much to elevate the Bucs to an elite level. They went 7-9........wait a sec, that's the same records as the WR challenged Dolphins. I think some of you get seduced by a player's potential and never stop to consider whether he will blend seamlessly into the offense. I would like to see Wallace or Jennings with the Phins. However, it has to be for a mutually beneficial deal.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    Tell me 10 better receivers?

    Megatron
    Fitz
    Andre Johnson
    Julio
    Marshall
    Vjax?
    Dez
    Cruz
    Roddy?

    I'd say Wallace is top 10.

    Look at HOW Wallace has gotten those gaudy numbers.

    We aren't going to have Rothlisburgher running around, EATING sacks and heaving the ball 60 yards every 10 plays.

    I hate to see the fins continue to make the same mistakes in free agency.

    Look at how the teams that go to and WIN the superbowl deal with free agency and WR's.

    Sign Jennings, and draft your future #1 in Keenan Allen or Patterson heck maybe even Patton.

    IF we give the guy 60 million it's really about the guaranteed money.

    At this point, I don't care how much the team spends on a particular player, just make sure you go out and get a play-maker. That's all I can ask and hope for.

    Pump AJ green in that list easily. Michael Crabtree, Reggie Wayne, and Demaryius Thomas all had better MUCH seasons then him.

    Not worth it. (so many Wallace threads, I realize I'm repeating myself)

    He's in the midst of a really disappointing, unproductive 24-game stretch - he's had only 2 100-yd games in that span. In the last 8 games of 2011: 29catches for 393yds and 3tds; followed up in their playoff game catching 3 balls (on 10 targets) for 26yds. And 2012 was easily his worst statistical year, which happened to come in his only season in a west-coast offense. He struggled in a system similar to ours. He's not a chain mover in this offense: in 2012 only 49% of his catches got 1st-downs (down from 71+% in each of his prior years). Over the last season and a half, he has just been unreliable. Steeler fans can't wait to be rid of him. I'd much prefer a versatile, tougher go-to guy on 3rd downs - Jennings.

    I see Hakeem Nicks doesnt get much respsect.
    "What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
