Re: 1st and goal

Cooley is one option for the redzone. But he didnt help us much getting there. And yeah, you are right about Wide out being more pressing right now than TE. I guess lets worry about getting in the red zone first, right?

Re: 1st and goal

The kid from WVU is Kay Jay Harris...

A great fit through the draft is Eric Shelton from Louisville, although he would only be available possibly in the 3rd. Hes 250 lbs. and he actually is pretty damn quick for that size.

A later round possibility is a guy named Brandon Jacobs from Southern Illinois. He doesnt get much pub b/c he is from a I-AA school, but he started off at Auburn behind Cadillac and Ronnie Brown. He's very similar to Shelton, except he has showed impressive speed, and would be a great steal in the 4th IMO.

We could also look at Jonathan Wells from the Texans in FA. He is another big ol' back with some pop when he runs. He is a RFA, and would require a 4th rounder from us, but it would possibly be worth it. I don't know if he would want to sign just to be a goal-line back, however.

Heath Miller is a good player, but not at number 9. If we traded down into the late teens, then I could see possibly drafting him, but he just isnt worth that pick. I know that 9 would at least be the 2nd highest recently that a TE has been drafted (Winslow) and he isnt in that same league. He's not a very good blocker and he lacks the speed to be truly dominant as a receiver (a la Gonzalez, Heap, Shockey to an extent). He is a nice pickup, but not in the top 10.

Also, what's wrong with Robert Royal? I mean I understand that he hasnt really played a major role in helping us to "matriculate the ball down the field" but he has been more than solid in the red zone, which I thought was the topic at hand. He had 4 TDs toward the end of the year, and showed some good hands and some determination in getting to the end zone.

This is, of course, where a guy like Mike Williams or Braylon Edwards is so important. Against a smashmouth running team like us, teams will stack the box with 9 at the goal line and leave corners on an island. There is really only one corner in the league, Mathis from the Jaguars, who I would think even stands a chance in a jump-ball with Big Mike, and thats only because hes 6'4" and has really solid ball skills.

Re: 1st and goal

Our red zone play calling was TERRIBLE.....I'd like to see anything that would help us get the ball in the end zone more.....running through the middle 3 times in a row just didn't do it..............

Re: 1st and goal

I'm just going to try and keep my mouth shut. I'm not feeling the "sky is falling" quite yet, but I'm still optimistic going into next year.

Yes, I'm pissed about Coles and others on the team, but maybe we're trimming the cancer from the team and showing the players who they PLAY for and that we won't deal with prima donna bullshit.

Also, about Clinton Portis... if we would throw him the ball more he would be like a GOOD version of Brian Westbrook.
Regret nothing. At one time it was exactly what you wanted.
