NO Pressure, No Diamonds, KNOW Pressure, Know Diamonds!
Griffin said that he was going to watch the game with his family and that he will never attend a Super Bowl if he needs a ticket to get in.
I could be wrong but I thought there was an article that came out about 4 or 5 days ago stating that Fletcher might be thinking about retirement after this season. If so, we might have to target a FA ILB or draft a ILB high in the draft.
I want the peace of God in my life.
To say these words is nothing.
But to mean these words is everything.
Nobody can mean these words and not be healed.
i know ppl want a new RT, but lets look at this realistically. We have a huge cap penalty coming again this yr, and wont be able to afford much in the offseason. Of all the positions of need, I think RT is one of the LEAST needed spots. Dont get me wrong, its a very important position and we could absolutely use an upgrade over Polumbus, but when looking at other holes, we have bigger needs.
Polumbus may not be great, but he's servicable. You forget that our offense was one of the best in the NFL, with Polumbus as a starter. The more reps he gets will only improve his play too. Again, I am not saying he is our long term starter or even that he is good, but I think he is servicable and that you will see him back as the starter next year until we lose the cap situation, then maybe we will sign a replacement.
Ryan Harris to me is on par with Polumbus. Not a great pass blocker but does well in the ZBS. With Compton and Hurt showing they can play there too, I would bet that we pick up a swing tackle who can play LT and RT to replace Black. Harris is a RT, Polumbus is a RT, Hurt is a G/RT, Compton is a unknown. We need to mix in a LT/RT into the depth instead of stocking up on RTs IMO. I resign Polumbus for cheap and pass on Harris and look for a swing tackle in free agency who can back up both spots

I was just looking at the UFA list. 2 O Lineman are on there in Polumbus and Lichensteiger. I think Polumbus will get a cap friendly offer and be back, but what do you think about Lichensteiger? He had another good yr and is a quality ZBS lineman.......BUT with LeRibus coming into his own in relief of Lichensteiger and playing pretty well late in the season, and with the 18mm cap hit do we resign Lichensteiger? This is where decisions get tough for the front office. IMO, I think we may see Lichensteiger back IF he agrees to a friendly deal....if he wants good money he may be going elsewhere and we may be seeing LeRibus as our starter next season. Good teams have young, CHEAP players who can fill in when they lose a player to FA.
If LeRibus starts, does Gettis become the primary backup now?

Pretty good write up by our guys at httr24-7! Except that they forgot to add Rob "the playmaker" Jackson to the list of free agents.

But what a fun problem to have, huh?
Skins2323: my biggest concern with RT actually comes down to the LT spot. I see three guys that could vie for the RT position, but I don't see a guy I'd be comfortable sliding to LT if Trent misses time. To me, getting a good prospect at RT (who has played ably at LT too) would shore up both positions.
