Winslow is supposed to be a lock, but Troupe and Watson and some of the other guys look pretty good too. Nothing's for sure...

Plus, we've got some excellent slot guys in Trash, Jacobs, and McCants - which lessen the importance of Winslow (even though he'd be an upgrade).

If Chamberlain gets his act together - he could return to "stud" form. What ever happened to him anyway?? I know he got fat and out of shape, but I mean, how can you go from stud to dud w/o trying to make a comeback?? We haven't released him yet, so that's a sign that there's still some potential.

If we got Winslow, I'd be thrilled. But I think Taylor is the way to go. No wrong answer here!!

This should not come as a suprise. The reason is very obvious ... we need to upgrade our defense more than our offense. We have not drafted a defensive player w/our top pick in the draft in four years. Arrington in 2000 was the last one. It is the Defense's turn to get a top player.
Recent top picks:

2003......Taylor Jacobs and Derrick Dockery
2002......Patrick Ramsey and Ledell Betts
2001......Rod Gardner
2000......Lavar Arrington

I think it is time for Snyder/Cerrato to realize, a high powered Offense sells tickets but Strong defense wins championships. The problem is drafting Defensive players does not get the headlines Snyder craves.

Good point. I think that Portis & Brunnel should check the "high-powered offense" block. Time to look to the D.

Do you think that is what the Colts thought when they played NE in the AFC title game??

I think KC will disagree with you as well, they got crushed in the playoffs.
It was said all year by the so-called "experts" that KC had the best offense in the NFL during the regular season 2003. The Colts came in a close second. They both were beat soundly in the playoffs. Payton Manning had something like 4 interceptions?
Every team that has won the Superbowl since 2000 has won with strong defense.

2003.... New England
2002.....Tampa Bay
2001.....New England
2000.....Baltimore

None of these teams has a scary offense. They won with defense.

Still, the thought of a dynamic TE like Winslow in this offense is a pleasant thought.

Seriously, how many sleepless nights would opposing d-coordinators have with having to prepare for an offense that would feature Brunell, Coles, Gardner, Portis, Winslow and with Gibbs calling the shots!? Scary.

I would rather let the opposing d- coordinators sleep at night and win a Superbowl,
rather than having a team like Colts and KC, that constantly lose in the playoffs....because their defense (as is ours) is inadequate.
Mr. Snyder, the goal is to win superbowls, not to create a fantasy league team offense.

Isn't the actual saying the opposite: The best offense is a great defense.
A great defense that keeps the opposing offense of the field is a great tool for the offense to have.

One reason that Im not sure ive seen anyone mention about Winslow is he speed. Not his speed as a receiver, but the speed he offers as a blocker. If Johnson would have been Portis blocker he would have outran him. Now I know you are supposed to follow your blocker and wait for holes, but Portis is known for making the big play, and if you have a blocker that can run faster the big play will be bigger. Winslow is no where near as fast as portis, but he can block and run faster then a blocking fullback. Gibbs runs a lot of counters and end a rounds that this would prove useful.

Gibbs' offense is built on the H-back. Winslow looks like the perfect H-back prospect. Give the man the tools he needs on O. Fix the D next year. Rome wasn't built in a day!

I voted for Taylor because of our needs on D but I keep flip-flopping ... it would be nice to get them both but that's just a dream, ain't gonna happen. Kellen Winslow as H-back would make the offense dominant, Taylor would quarterback the D from day one and make up for the loss of Champ. I'm happy either way but it's Taylor by a nose hair because defense wins championships, yada yada, as others said before. But remember when the Rams won it all with no D to speak of? Hmmm. And you almost get the sense that Gregg Williams could take 11 Warpath posters and make a top flight D. Man I just don't know.

Gibbs offense alread has everything it needs to be succesfull. Talented O-line where it all starts. A rising star as runningback. A rising star at qp (Ramsey not brunnel), and very talented recievers. The defense however is far from the super bowl calliber. It needs another playmaker, Tayler. A major help on the d-line. To me there's no question that our pick has to address the defense.

The more I read the Taylor-supporters' posts, the more I start flip-flopping. I voted for Winslow, but you guys make a pretty good argument for focusing on the defense in this draft. It's definitely true that the defense has been neglected in recent drafts, and they need a true playmaker in the secondary to complement Smoot.

I'd be ecstatic if the FO could figure out a way to get both Taylor and Winslow. I doubt it would happen. What about the possibility of getting both Taylor and Udeze? Talk about helping out the defense! Can you imagine a Gregg Williams defense featuring Udeze, Arrington, Washington, Smoot AND Taylor?! Now that would be freakin' scary!
