Pierce offically gone

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...len&id=2003907

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!!!!!!

Re: Pierce offically gone

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.

Re: Pierce offically gone

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...

Re: Pierce offically gone

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.

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 thought Brooks declared for this draft along with blackstock?

Brooks is a very talented mlb from UVA.

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

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.

I disagree, we should never draft for need in the first couple of rounds. The last few times we drafted a WR in the first round because we needed one, we ended with Desmond Howard (crap) and Michael Westbrook (bad knee).
For those of you who do not know who Derrick Johnson is, he is 6'-4" 230 pound monster of a LB. An aggressive, speedy and explosive linebacker, some of his combine numbers were tops ever measured for a LB. I think his shuttle run time is the fastest...
He earned the Bronko Nagurski Trophy as the nationís top defensive player and the Butkus Award (nationís top LB) ... was a finalist for the Bednarik Award (nationís top defensive player), the Lombardi Award (nationís top lineman) and the Lott Trophy (defensive player of the year) in 2004 Ö was the only defensive player among the 10 finalists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.
Getting FS Sean Taylor last year and if we could get Dj this year, our defense would be great. You can get a WR anywhere. They are always cap casualties.

Re: Pierce offically gone

I wouldn't say we were that deep at LB. We have Lavar, Barrow (still hurt), Washington, Marshall, Clemons (pass rusher) then who...? So, right now it's Lavar, Washington and Marshall and not much depth behind that. If a top tier receiver is not available at 9 then why not go for the best athlete that can help the team? Edwards and Williams are going to be gone by the 9th pick. Do we want another Rod Gardner (average WR picked in the first round) or do we pick the strongest player and then pickup another average WR in the 2nd?
