Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

I'd have to pick one of the receivers, from which I picked Randle El, since he's never been much of a #1 or #2 receiver, and I think Lloyd has more potential.

The Skins can always find a return man, and with Moss, Patten, and Lloyd, doesn't make sense to logjam the position.

I'm going with Archuleta. I would rather have resigned Clark (who played just fine). I have no problem with all this WR depth we have.

I just see the salary of Archuleta being a problem when we want to resign Taylor a few years down the road.

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

This is tough, I picked Archuleta, because I liked Ryan Clark a lot and he isn't worth the money we gave him for a position I felt was very solid.

Randel El is a very close 2nd.

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

My vote is for Lloyd because they had to give up 2 picks to get him. The rest came over as FAs

im also going archuleta. he is fairly unproven as it is, but i think if he stays healthy, he'll change all our minds

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

Can we add a none of the above button? I actually agree with all the moves. Lloyd didn't cost too much and you know what you're getting (rather than, say, counting on the draft to grab a Taylor Jacobs). I thought Archuletta made sense given ST's legal uncertainties (although we probably overpaid). Randle El and Carter were FAs, and I don't care what we paid them because we always find a way to stay out of cap hell anyways. Both were good moves for areas of need.

ARCHULETA. He signed the biggest contract for a safety EVER. enough said. I live near St. Louis so I have heard all about him for years. I always liked him (I'm a big fan of the huge hits), but never thought he would bring this kind of money. I'm sure throughout the season we are gonna be singing his praises on a few knockout shots, but more importantly we will be pissed about a few blown coverages. Our run defense will get better, but he won't help our problem of giving up 40+ yard plays. Maybe I'm just sour because Ryan Clark was a true worker and now may not even get a chance to start with the Steelers (are they still trying to sign a safety??)

Hm, I don't think that's his problem to deal with. I think with the athleticism of Taylor, they don't mind him being the coverage safety.

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

I'm going with archuleta. I thought ryan clark did a fine job back there next to sean taylor. It wasn't worth bringing a new guy in to replace him. You don't fix what's not broken, and that's how i view that. I'm not saying archuleta won't be better, he might be, or he might suck, but i wouldn't have signed him, all the same.

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

I like our moves this year. Hence, I would say all of above. We have more weapons and depth at WR. AA is an upgrade from Ryan as well as insurance for S.Taylor. Insurance cost $$. Carter is a need for DE. If you can spend $$ to appease the fan and win the ring, Why not? We are buying glory and entertainment. GO SKINS!!!

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

I chose AA solely on the basis of his contract. A little extra money from that contract may have landed us a better linebacker. I believe Randle El will be the new Brian Mitchell. Lloyd the new Gary Clark. Moss is ... Moss, of course.

Re: What move would you have not made if you were GM?

I don't mind the archuleta move, just not at the price and when I think we would have been almost the same with just bringing back a much cheaper Ryan Clark. that would have then allowed us to go after a high quality lb or cb.
