Quote from: Boid Fink on November 05, 2006, 04:26:20 PMI know what can be done: Start Winborn in Brooks stead, start Ruud, and let Brooks play SLB.Bench Spires, and put in White. It is bound to happen next year anyway, get White his reps. Could they possibly be keeing White on the bench to keep his FA value lower? Who knows. They should just go ahead and sign him to the extension now.

I think the 4 #1's and 3 #2's lost are finally really coming home to roost.McKay's awful decisions (2 #1's for Keyshawn? Is there anyone in the league today who would command that? - Trading a 2nd rounder to move up to pick up Kenyatta) and the ransom paid for Gruden were too much.There's just no depth on defense. We need to draft just about all defense next year.
Folks, I'm sad to say the worst is yet to come I think. 1) Not many Rooks or FA's have played well in this defense their first year. Next year could be very rough.2) But even bigger, does Kiffen want to start over? I know he loves what he's doing, but how much of that is love for his long time players? Will Kiffen and Brooks buy a boat and sail off into retirement together?
It's not good. A combination of: 1. losing Marinelli and Tomlin....no way to replace those guys, 2. aging defense, 3. an offense that consistently goes 3 and out.
I think the sun has set on Monte. The absense of Marinelli and Tomlin has exposed him somewhat.He deserves the accolades he has achieved but I think we need youth at the DC position too. Someone who is a motivator which I do not think Monte is at all.
