Pierce offically gone

So now that Pierce is gone for sure what are we going to do? I think we hope Barrow is healthy enough to play. After an entire year off if he can;t play now he should just retire anyway. Also Clifton Smith Could step in if Barrow is still having problems. I have faith in Smith and if he is healthy I think he will do a great job in the middle. I wouldn't be suprised if we make a run at Hartwell, Bell, or even Rob Morris depending on their asking price. All I know is Ahmad Brooks is our guy in the 2006 draft!!!!!!

How about Derrick Johnson in the draft. The guy is a monster and unless we're gtting a top flight WR (which may be gone) it wouldn't be too bad to pick up the best college LB in the country.

That article doesn't say he's officially gone. it says he is expected to sign today just like all the other articles today have said. I think we need to come to terms with the fact that he will sign it, but as of now he has not signed it.

I hope we will find out if we were ever given an opportunity to match like Pierce said he would last week...

We have so much depth at linebacker it's ridiculous. DJ is a great LB, but we need to go WR.

Who's that???? Ahmad Brooks.

By the way if Len Pasquarelli is reporting it doesn't mean it's true.

Re: Pierce offically gone
 
I wont say he's 'officially' gone because he hasn't signed yet. When a story is written that the Redskins have declined to 'match' offers with the UFA. I think Pierce was more valuable than Smoot partly because of the talent pool of free agents. And there's hope that Smoot will take the offer we have on the table because of the Anthony Henry contract signing. :oink:

Derrick Johnson is going to be amazing but he is an OLB. NEXT year Ahmad Brooks will be in the draft....he will be our man.

I'm assuming Brooks plays for...PSU? MLB, OLB, ILB, tweener. Greg Williams will plug the right guy in just as he did Pierce. Hopefully, it's Pierce after all is said and signed. :oink:

I thought Brooks declared for this draft along with blackstock?

In the 2006 draft we will have the 32nd pick so it might be hard to pick him up.

PSUskinsfan11 03-03-2005 11:36 AM

Re: Pierce offically gone
 
He decided to stay. Blackstock is going to be a beast. Hopefully not for the COWBOYS!!!!!! It would be nice to have that problem of having the 32nd pick, in that case i guess we would have to make some trades up!!

So true Daseal. We have plenty of LBs, and it seems like Williams can pretty much plug in anyone and the defense won't miss a beat.

WR all the way. Williams, Williamson.....

Exactly what I'm saying... This might be more of a blessing than anyone realized. He might go to New York and be a bust after signing that huge contract. With all this depth, especially with LaVar coming back this year, we will be just fine at the position.
