Default Dear Howie

I take back every bad thing I ever said and am sorry I laid the Kelly fiasco at your feet. You have done the impossible and I can't wait to see if you did indeed improve our 1st rd pick.

I'm not going that far yet but I am liking the pre-draft pre-FA period so far. Although I thought Moats played pretty well (albeit an injury waiting to happen) last year. The Murray Maxwell contracts for what they produced was brutal even if they had to potential to do better this year. Did anyone say Alonso was worth a damn at any time last year---no. Howie is getting out from the Crap of Chip and getting something in return. I would always like more but acknowledge that it isn't easy to do.

It's a little early for that MM. I don't like all this crap myself. He's starting to sound like "Let's Make a Deal" Howie again.

I just said I love the moves. Not sure where this goes, but we are getting better long term and ridding ourselves of cancer. I like that we are committing to the core and to the vets we have. If we can sign Cox, I would be happier. We had little depth and several contracts that killed the cap for years to come. Howie is moving like the Ferret. Nobody, and I mean nobody, ever would have thought we could move Maxwell, Alonzo AND Murray this year and get anything back. If we get 4 picks from the Dolphins and something from the Titans, we are going to look Reidesque going into the draft with a dozen picks. I don't know he grand plan, but like the signals we are sending.

It would be nice if we had some kind of scouting department to use those picks. Or a head of personnel. Or a functioning FO. We'll see.

Damn 60 do you think it will be worse than Chip's mistakes?

Yes, these moves just create some opportunities for us. It all depends on how they use those opportunities.

Come on 60; we are entitled to reach and react before we think. Throw logic out the window and jump on the bus....

60 mix some beam with the green koolaid. We're SB bound !!!! Seriously, Howie somehow unloaded the unloadable . I kinda wanted to see Murray with some blocking though.
