GRANT / YOUNG / HAYNESWORTH / SMITH

FUJITA / VILMA / MORGAN

MCKENZIE CROMARTIE

BULLOCKS HARPER


You can accomplish this by drafting Cromartie @ 10 then later in the 1st round if Haynesworth hasn't been moved yet you throw our 2nd rounder + Hollis Thomas at the Titans. I would say trade Young, but I believe the Titans want the bigger guy, as well as our staff is looking to keep the motor guy / mammoth guy combo going.

Assuming our newly acquired former Pro Bowl linebackers stay healthy, and Mike McKenzie is a day 1 starter then we have POTENTIALLY the best defense in the league.

Do a sign & trade for Haynesworth, and do it now. Pay him what he wants, the things he'll open up for Vilma, Smith and Morgan are off the charts. Not only is he great, but he'll take 3-4 more players to the next level as well.

I was with you until... I saw that you kept Bullocks in the mix. :covri:

That defense looks good on paper and would be much better than what we have now with Haynesworth and Vilma. If those 2 LBs stay healthy and with Morgan we are asking for alot, then yea that defense would be sick. I would look to upgrade Bullocks spot though. Another thing is that we need to upgrade as many defensive spots through the draft that we can. Next year we would not have Morgan ( I don't see him being more than a 1 yr deal.). McKenzie is not getting younger. We need someone opposite him. Usama Young might be that guy but we don't know. Brian Young is getting old but still productive. The safeties could be upgraded as well. I understand we cant fix it all in one offseason but we need to upgrade the defense at as many positions as possible.

Well I was being realistic here. I mean what is shown there is very reasonable this year. With a great DT some upgrades at corner and linebacker you'll be suprised how much better Young and Bullocks look. I think Harper is already a very good SS.

We can't fix it all this year, we've already added some very key players. I'm really hoping we make a play for a really good DT, and we have the ammo to do it !!

Madden rules

I think we should pick up CB Jay McCloud with our draft pick. I was scrolling through the combine stats and I saw he had the fastest time in the shuttle and he had a 43 inch verticle leap. Sounds to me like his hands and his jump will be 99s from day 1!

And if anyone even thinks about blocking Haynesworth he can always stomp on their neck after the play to teach em a lesson

Exactly, step on a head, pull a Turley and rip off a helmet, as long as he is on the home town team, the fans would love him!

I agree. I'd move Bullocks to SS and let him compete with Harper, and allow Reis and Kaesviharn to battle for the FS spot.

I don't agree with you on Harper. Last year was truly his first full season. I think he player 5-6 games his rookie year. I think the jury is still out but I like that he is a strong hitter for receivers over the middle. I give Harper another year to progress.

BY was hurt most of last year. I still think he can play but is a big undersized to play in the middle.

JB - I'm baffled by the continued support by this regime. He get's beat almost as much as JD. If he lines up over the top of JD's side that's like Christmastime for teams! Apparently the coaches see something that we the fans don't.
