    Gee whiz Randy H. Mark him down with a B for composition. Do you feel better now? I sure hope you don’t have kids “neither or” they might grow up to be repressed anal retentive types like yourself.

      Sorry that I expected more from someone who is a professional writer. It was just something that I remembered from school. I guess in hind sight, it is the copy editor’s fault for not picking it up. And yes, I am anal, thanks for the compliment. Sorry, that I expect people to do what they get paid to do.

      Absolutely drdneast. What are people thinking, expecting a journalist writing professionally to use proper English and stuff? Who needs that high falootin book learning to be a professional writer right? I weep for the future. People are way too quick to settle for mediocre nowadays.

    The question I have is if you all think this is a good thing or a bad thing for our time. Rarely are undrafted free agent rookies game ready and four not only seem like a bit but does this reflect on the talent already available to the team. Especially short term I wonder if a couple of these guys could have been put on the practice squad and developed like I THINK was done with Kevin Pamphile a couple of years ago…forgive me if that is an incorrect recollection. And of course a couple of those players would have to be let go, but that happens all the time.

    I’m not criticizing…I don’t know. Should we be comfortable if Webster has to come in the first few weeks of the season? Yes we have the story. I’m just wondering what your take on this situation is.

      Revfish: The Draft is only 7 rounds now. It used to be 12 rounds. Found David Logan in the 12th. Point is, there are guys that would have been drafted in years past that now are free to join teams that best suit them. It’s always amazed me how some first rounders never live up to expectations and some obscure guy from Pudunk U succeeds.

      I agree with scubog. Dave Logan. A blast from the past. Solid NT and weight room warrior. If I remember correctly he used to fly back after an away game and go immediately to the weight room. Scubog’s comments notwithstanding, my question is this: Are all these UFA signings the result of good scouting, or are we just very shallow with 2nd and 3rd level talent?
