Why would we trade a back who has just proved himself as being able to carry a nice load of work AND a high pick for an above average LB and 25th pick? I like Vilma, he's cool and all but WTF! Trading down is not a good idea. On one hand, Vilma could really shore up the defense but then the quality of our pick decreases pretty greatly. Yeah, there might be people at that spot worth taking but, I think the draft could go any which crazy ways so.....ok...I'm too F-ed up right now from staying up all night partying, it's time to sleep. I'll finish this later. Hahah

yeah that pretty much sums it up if we odnt get an extra pick (like the one we gave them last year what the hell were we thinking then this deal is str8 up bulls***!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: News from the Combine

I'm not sure why people around here don't want to trade a back up running back( with fumbling issues) for a proven, pro bowl middle linebacker. we definitely need someone in the middle. yet, on the flip side, alot of these same people seem to have no problem signing a 32 year old middle linebacker, when the last 2 times we have tried that, have failed miserably( trotter, barrow)? by signing fletcher, this puts the skins in the exact same position they are in , about 2 seasons from now. this is assuming they can get 2 years out of fletcher

I don't think that's the real concern. It's dropping from #6 to #25 and not adding any other picks that's the concern

Re: News from the Combine

Calvin Johnson is 6'5 235 lbs and ran a 4.3. If he somehow slips to the 6th pick I hope like hell we take him. That is if we still have our pick.

100 % percent agree, but Cartwright tends to fumble the ball.

BAD MOVE
I agree. The deal would be worht it with some more picks thrown into the mix. I thought the Skins FO had seen the light and realized they need to build through the draft. Trading down and still having one pick on day one wouldn't help. You'd think they'd realize when teams trade up they usually throw in a few more picks, especially since, that's how we've gotten rid of ours.

Re: News from the Combine

the jets have to sweeten the deal a little more, i agree with all the guys saying bad move if we dont get a 2nd or maybe even a 3rd rounder. heres my plan of action: 1) resign doc, 2) sign kerney, this guy is a total beast, 3) make the draft day deal with the jets if they sweeten it. IF LARON LANDRY IS AVALIABLE (HE WONT BE) PICK HIM OTHERWISE pick Willis, Posluszny, or Timmions. Then with the second or third pick cb-s eric weddle out of utah(smart/instinctive football player who can play the game at a high speed). Thats what our boys need to do. ..........its very hard for me to think like that because i think jamal anderson is the next coming.............oh and would anybody trade our 6th pick for juluis peppers?

Re: News from the Combine

oh and i forgot to tell you that rocky macintosh isnt good enough thats why we go lb at number 25 instead of db or dline. all three of those linebackers can out play him esspecially willis and posluszny. its hard to admit it but i said it was bust last year when they drafted him. i hope he works out but right now it was a idiot mistake to trade up to get him, awful.

You mean the same way we picked Carlos Rogers when we had a glaring need at corner instead of picking Shawne Merriman, yeah passing on a phenom reciever who ran a 4.3 forty at 6'5" would definately be the smart thing, god knows Brandon Lloyd,James Thrash and Randle El just strike fear in the heart of opponents.

Wow, your really good, you can tell Mcintosh is a bust after he played in a couple games, amazing. First off, Posluzny doesnt have half the athleticism that Rocky has and not to mention he has bad knees. Pat Willis is a monster, but again your comparing a speedy OLB to a bruising MLB, it just doesnt make sense, its sort of like comparing Ray Lewis to Cato June.

We are not good enough to draft for need. Did the Saints need a RB last year? No. They took the best player on the board. The Texans drafted for need and you see where it got them.

Only positions that are off limits are QB and RB. Otherwise it should be fair game.

Re: News from the Combine

To be honest, this is kind of a moot point, because Johnson won't be there when we pick anyway
