as for Merling he is in Washington after his two tackles and being cut in Green bay. This was a guy we placed a second round tender on last year along with Lydon Murtha

WVdolphan "Ireland gets it.
And those who also get it, know that Ireland gets it. Those who are clueless are still concerned about cornfed and the running game"
WVDOLPHAN "The last thing this team should be worried about is the OC(offensive corn). When you add it all up, its really a pretty solid OC"
Philbin and Sherman prefer drafting their own team. But I see some major compromising to jump start this team. And i believe they went out and targeted players to fit their scheme and team chemistry.
We signed a lot of 1 year deals. Some are "prove it" deals and others are stop gaps. The drafts are they key. We don't need to shock the world with every pick, but the vast majority of picks need to produce for at least 3 - 5 years to make the cap stay healthy long term.
It would be nice if we were still able to roll $5M or more into next year's cap from this year.
I think Ireland has hit one out of the park this year. There are times when you have to go big. He did. Now it's up to the staff and players to do their part.
