I think the best thing BA/MS can do is approach this offseason with an aggressive, but not blank check, mentality. Get players who are team oriented, doesn't have to be the biggest name (but can be) and demonstrate a long term commitment to growing players here, not scooping off the marquise names.
You make an excellent argument.

I would add that when there is a new CBA there likely will be some salary maximum mechanism. There will be a salary cap or some other regime to keep salaries in check. If we go wild in an uncapped year, the chickens will come home to roost when the new CBA kicks in, and we may have to gut our team for salary reasons AGAIN.

im just glad this season is uncapped. could you imagine if we had to account for haynesworth's 22 mil plus this year and CP's 12 mil plus in a capped 2010?

I'm not sure but from what I've read, the way teams are able to restructure contracts this wouldn't be a significant problem. Can't remember where I read it. Might have been MAD Magazine.

Well you have the 30% rule currently, and one article, possibly that same MAD magazine, speculated that IF a new CBA included a salary cap, there would be a pro-rated scale to "punish" those teams that over-indulged this year.

But I think that same magazine had a lockout followed by the end of the world in 2012, so this could conceivably be the last season of NFL caliber professional football.

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

Robinson should be considered simply because we don't really have a high-tier corner. Hall could be a shutdown corner, but his personal ideal of playing is to be an interception machine. Rogers is barely solid, but his bad hands will cost the teams potential wins in close games.

Sproles is going to be overpaid no matter what, so it's better to stick with Alridge or look to the draft for a return specialist.

Well according to Schefter the Chargers are not even putting a tender on Sproles. I would certainly like the Skins to at least talk with the agent.

i thought this is why we gave AH so much money because it was almost certain that it would be an uncapped year and there would be no penalty so to speak.

That linebacking core sounds like as probowl roster lbs.... If haslett couldn't get a performance out of that front seven he needs to stop coaching football or go back to highschool. HA!

The problem I see with our D though is in the back end. We need to shore up the FS spot, The SS spot is secure as we are 3 deep, and I don't really know what we have at CB and how the current players will respond to our new defensive scheme. I like hall and Rodgers but after that we are so light.
I think in this scenario Horton or Smoot would be good at FS. Both played there some last year and with the amount of pressure the front 7 would generate a serviceable FS could post 7 ints.

Horton at FS?

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

I would welcome Dunta but would hope we shy away from the Sproles sweepstakes. I would prefer a more complete back to groom behind Portis.

I would prefer a more complete back to play ahead of Portis.

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

The Chargers apparently want to let Sproles go out there and find out what he's really worth and then they'll likely look to keep him long term. Unless some other team blows him away with an offer

Smoot,
It seems, to me, like that is a more common approach this year than the past few. Any idea if it's due to the teams' uncertainty over the CBA, or are players agent's trying to get them to the uncapped free agent market?

I think in the case of Sproles, he's been demanding big money and the Chargers (namely AJ Smith) are trying to prove to him that he's not worth that much
