Unfortunately though, this is the corner that Snyder, the FO, and Gibbs 2.0 have painted themselves into. Because they have a history of bad moves in the past now everything they do is a target. They brought this on themselves.
So now we need to blast them over a practice squad type of move?

C'mon this thread is just ridiculous. It was a tough season so I can understand people being on edge, but I really hope we're not going to spend the entire offseason blasting every move no matter how insignificant it is.

Re: A Signing Already?!

As am I. Honestly, I'm not going to ask for wins or losses. I'm going to ask for the team to stay healthy all season long. That way there are no excuses.

Sorry I should have specified the responses to this thread are what's ri-goddamn-diculous, not the original post.

Re: A Signing Already?!



I tend to agree. Nothing to get panties in a bunch over for any reason whatsoever. Not a bad move, not a good move.

How about we at least let them get out of the gate this offseason before determining they aren't changing course. Sorry but this pickup didn't warrant some of the assanine responses.

Why is this signing so awful yet you had no problem suggesting this? How is it so different?

Lordy... Yes, they have brought scrutiny upon themselves. Deservedly so. But to "pile on" to a CFL signing that is as close to meaningless as possible one week into the offseason? That's not "piling on" that's just shouting out ridiculous bile b/c your convinced of your own damn brilliance and can't take a rational approach to even the most insignificant move.

What's next - A tirade when Brittney doesn't make next year's cut on the cheerleading squad?

They probably saw something they liked, gave him a no SB contract, and will be pleasantly surprised if he does anything more than make the practice squad.

Man - this mob looks to eat its own quickly. Can we at least wait more than one week before we castigate the FO for a horrible offseason??
For real! Please someone get me the giant bag of pacifiers laying next to the huggies.

Damn right.

And Matty, when is the appropriate time for criticizing or applauding any personnel moves?

10 days after the season ending? A month?

Re: A Signing Already?!

this might end up a good signing, 1st round draft pick DE are very risky, hopefully we are drafting a quality CB or DT and build depth through free agency like every other club.... not a bad move in my opinion....give it a chance 8 sacks are not terrific but 70 tackles is pretty good. he might be fundamentally sound

Sorry but why bring in a 240lb pass rusher? He can't even give Samuels and Jansen a good look on scout team.

Do we have anyone on the team at DE with more than 8 sacks in the last two years? Sounds like an upgrade to me already. despite the fact he may not even make the team.

Any time - as long as the criticism is relevant and rational to the move being criticized. Here, you guys are:

A) blasting a back-of-the-sports-section-blurb as if it is some major signing;

B) criticizing the signing w/o commenting on the relevant merits of the player signed and whether or not we are getting a decent value for the money/draft picks spent;

C) treating this signing as an example of front office incompentence when there is absolutely no evidence as to whether or not anyone else may/may not have been pursuing this guy (Hey, what if it turns out we stole him right out from the Patriots noses - would you still be blasting the FO, if this turns out to be a highly coveted player?).

D) (as I stated earlier) acting as if this is "The Big Signing" of the offseason and the one upon which the entire offseason is judged.

As for the references that I have made about time - In this case we know absolutely nothing about the guy except from some CFL blurb. This is an unknown (and likely to stay that way) who's signing is one tiny, miniscule offseason move that we, probably, won't know the true signifigance of until we are much further into the signing period.

It's not like we are talking about a blockbuster trade where the personnel and/ or value (i.e. draft picks) of the trade are well know.

In this case, you guys are simply criticizing to criticize "We did it so it must be dumb." There are plenty of "Our FO sucks" threads out there - go bump them.
