Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Really feel like we're already heavily invested in the WR position this year. Way too much downside on this for far too little gain, imo.

Completely agree. But I think it is a really fascinating 'what if' discussion. Just like the Talib scenario. Worth discussing, but ultimately, unlikely to reach fruition.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Our FO has been working wonders with draft picks the last 2 years. I think we can get a bigger impact from the picks than Harvin. We're deep at WR already.

Griffin was worth ANY price we could have paid, but we need to support him now.

My hope is that Robinson turns out to be that shifty, speedy slot receiver that we need. All indications from OTAs and minicamp point to that assumption. We'll see once the pads come on.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Robinson could and probably should replace Banks as the return man too.

That's an intelligent comment.

...assuming he can hang on to the ball. Preseason was very rough on Robinson. I'm glad we stashed him on the PS. He needed time to develop.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Why are people talking about Robinson? He didn't even dress for a game last year. He'll be cut midway through preseason, as will banks.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

Who do you have returning then?

I really don't believe Banks will make it as a WR, so he won't make the team.


Terrence Austin is a good option. He or Robinson should be a returner for us. I don't want Moss or Hall out there full time, or any of our starting secondary guys. We're already thin enough in the secondary to risk losing someone on a punt return.

I'm only talking about Robinson because the people that are allowed to witness the practices won't stop talking about Robinson. Same reason why we all talk about Minnifield, really.

I completely agree. I'd hope that TA or Robinson beats out Banks. With presumably three QBs on the opening day roster, I have to assume that we won't have the ability to hang on to Banks (which is fine by me).

Unless Brandon Banks has a great camp and a tremendous preseason, I don't see him remaining. He has put on a bit more weight. One thing about Banks is he rises to the occasion when the odds are against him.


Terrence Austin should be further along than what he is. Looking at what Victor Cruz did for the Giants last season makes me wonder if Austin could ever do the same thing. Austin was drafted but Cruz wasn't. I hope Austin can get more opportunities so show what he can do.

Re: Around the NFL...Offseason Style

I feel Aldrick makes the team this year .... And Austin and banks don't ... So far Aldrick is having the better off season of the three, but that really doesn't mean too much ... I remember being excited when we drafted him but those two fumbles on the kick offs last pre- season messed with his confidence .... And he never recovered from them ....I'm rooting him

Insanity. Doing the same crap over and over expecting different results. Still after all these years of stupid trades and pissing away our draft picks, it amazes me how Skin fans can even mention "trade" anymore without having a flashback to all the stupid crap our organization has done the past decade.


So without any first rounders the next 2 years, you want to also give up 2 second rounders as well. Between you and The Goat, I don't know which of you I want to knee in the nuts more.
