Re: Franz Gone

We are now doomed! I think this means we can only win maybe 2 or 3 games this year. Pack it in boys the season's over before it started!

Re: Franz Gone

That's a shame. He was always a great back-up.

Re: Franz Gone

If that's the end of our losses for the year... I'll be a happy camper.

Re: Franz Gone

Yeah he added depth but I am sure we can find a suitable replacement. We're not talking about Ronnie Lott or anybody.

I just heard on Sportstalk 980 that we were going to sign former Bill's safety Pierson Prioleau. 5'11" 188lbs. 7 year vet. Out of VA Tech. What do you guys think about him?

Re: Franz Gone

Sounds good...I am guessing he is a Greg Williams guy from his stint up there. Means he probably knows the defense pretty well and won't have too much of a learning curve. Good depth guy who probably more than adequately replaces Franze.

Re: Franz Gone

What a disaster this offseason has been, Franz was a guy we absolutely needed to bring back.

Fire Gibbs!

Fire him!?!?! I say fire him and burn him at the stake. Then get the pitchforks and torches and we can march up to Danny Boy's house and get him too.

Re: Franz Gone

I guess this offseason has been a huge success for you Matty? It's been an F from every aspect. Retaining defense and making slight changes to the offense was all we needed! Franz isn't exactly the straw that broke the camel's back though.

Re: Franz Gone

Because of all the injuries last year, we ended up about 4 deep at the safety positions. We have Taylor, Bowen, Clark, Lott, Doering, and Wilson on the roster right now. Franz is nice, but I think we'll survive.

Re: Franz Gone

I will never get the Dallas game he was warming up in the endzone pregame and a fan hollered at him "HEY DENNIS", even he laughed at the fan...

I can see both sides of the argument that this offseason has been good or bad. When taken as one offseason it would appear that we lost more talent than we gained. But when taken in context of past offseasons it has been a major departure. We haven't won squat in years so I think they deserve the chance to try something different. I would give this off season an A based simply on that. All the other offseasons clearly ended up being Fs because they didn't amount to diddly poo.

Re: Franz Gone

The other offseasons got us key players like Washington, Griffen, Springs, Thomas, Portis, etc. Which were great pickups. I don't feel we should have crazy spending sprees every year, but retaining our guys should be key!
