Start your own damn poll! I'm going to go tear into a steak now, enjoy your soup through a straw

Yeah, go ahead and add that if you want. I wanted to limit the options so people chose either one of the options or just wait for the next poll

That would be nice...Cooley did seem to disappear a little too often last year, and he creates way too many problems to be lost.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Whew! It's like "what the hell happened." First off, I'm very surprised none of you commented on the reaction of Malcolm Kelly when his name was announced. I thought his look was pure disappointment - I could be wrong but holy hell that was the most forced smile I've ever seen. Secondly, lots of us figure Zorn is unhappy w/ our crop of WRs, and that is not totally a surprise. But take a minute to think about what has cost us most in passing production (aside from injuries) and I think many of us have pointed to the dropped passes. So w/ the very first pick we take a guy that the analysts say has had a hard time catching the ball! Seriously?!

All I can figure is what several have already said: a trade of our current lineup seems highly likely. I just can't figure out who or why. If it's Cooley I'm gonna shit myself.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Rabach seemed to have problems with injuries last year and the team passed up the chance to take Mike Pollack. If Steve Justice falls to that comp pick tomorrowed I'll be stoked for about 2 minutes then the Skins will draft Josh Johnson in which case I'll shrug my shoulders. Johnson isn't a bad pick, but they better take a bunch of lineman next year.

As I said before the matchup problems they'll be able to create with this recieving squad is immense, but if history is any indication our O-Line won't hold up and on top of that they have a poor track record of developing 4th and 6th round picks when it comes to offensive line.

Use post # 739 for the "none" option

LOL. I was actually about to say what if we sent our 4th for JT. I like your option much better though

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Most teams that run a two TE set usually have one that's a better catcher and one that's a better blocker. Cooley's definitely the better route-runner, but BFD can catch just as well (he was our leading receiver in our pro-style offense last season). Both of these guys can also block, but now Cooley's going to be able to shift around instead of staying in to help the edge. Oh yeah, Davis can also stretch the field.

Absolute nightmare for opposing defenses.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I was just reading on sporting news about how Mix will be involved in the offense...how is this going to be the case now with two new WR's?
Don't get me wrong, I actually like the idea. If one fails, the other can be lifted to stardom...This could be our new Monk / Clark connection except they were both drafted in the same draft.

Cooley aint going no where. Believe that. You don't trade an up and coming Pro-Bowler for a rookie. You'll see them both on the field together, quite a bit.

I can't really speak to Malcolm's forced smile - didn't see it. But the kid's coming to a playoff team with a lot of weapons on offense, a hard hitting defense, and a franchise with a rich, rich tradition.

Unless he was on some weed at the time, he has to be happy about that.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

I honestly think we wanted the DT from Notre Dame Trevor Laws.., when he was picked by philly before us we had no choice but to take Kelly. Honestly it was like we should have taken Laws and they should have gotten Kelly.

You have to figure Thrash is gone and as someone alluded to earlier, I wouldn't be shocked if ARE got traded. I don't expect it to happen, but I wouldn't be shocked.

Don't forget folks we have six picks tomorrow.

I'm sure it was more of a disappointment as to where in the draft he was taken, not what team he went to.

ARE rumor has been hovering for a while, but I have no idea to whom or for what
