you're so freakin right about that. whenever we need a monster punt frost always seems to shank one.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Maybe we aren't picking a DE cus we have some weird deal that's gonna go down with Miami for Jason Taylor...I saw some said Randle El for Taylor. I'd do that. Randle El has been a disappointment for me so far as a SKin.

Those guys just never seem to be comfortable getting under center and adjusting to the NFL game. He looked terrible at the All Star games and he looked even worse against Georgia. I would've taken Andre Woodson.
I didn't say he was a piece of poo.

BTW- the same argument was made for Chris Wienke. "You don't start at FSU if you're no good". Obviously a lot of GMs in this league agree with me that Booty is overrated.

Even if it doesn't work out, so what, it only cost us a 6th pick. We took Palmer not too long ago and he's already gone. This won't hurt us at all, but I think it has the potential to be a good pick in the future. Brennan is better than you think he is.

I don't think that "can" happen with the cap issues it would create, but you never know what we could pull off.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

We gotta take a DE or DT...is there anyone of any worth still available? It'd be great to get a gem this late that we could groom for a few years or get some solid depth.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Brennan broke a ton of records (albeit with Hawaii) so it's not like the guy is a piece of crap. He was drafted as a back-up, not a starter. He'll go at least a year as the #3 learning to play the pro game before he ever even sniffs the field.
And as much as it sucks to draft a punter, it would be nice to have a guy who can actually get some yardage when it counts. The guy was the top punter in football so like someone said before, hopefully we have seen the end of the 29 yard punt from our own endzone

Wow, I had no idea. Where did you play?

I wouldn't call ARE a disappointment- we definitely overpaid for him but most knew that from the beginning.

Well with Collins being 36 or 37 I was hoping that we'd bring someone in that could take over the #2 in a year or two. Booty ran a real pro offense and ran it pretty damn well everytime I saw him play. Brennan ran a gimmick offense that doesn't work against legit teams. See Georgia. But I hear what your saying. No real risk here. I just wish we'd have taken a guy that has starting potential a few years down the road.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Is there some place where one can go to see which players are still available at each position?
