What he means is that with the massive influx of new members the quality of posters, posts and thread starters has gone significantly downhill.

Certainly true that there is a positive correlation between new posters such as myself and unrealistic or low quality threads and posts. As for me personally I started following this thread several years ago because Im a Texans fan and Im a childhood friend of Old Miss Texan. I did not join until recently because around 2007 I started taking care of my dad during the day and working on my masters at night. After I finished with my studies I came to Costa Rica to start a business. Until recently have I had time to join and start posting. What Im trying to say is that you are right about the positive correlation between new members and forum quality, but just because you have a ton of posts and or time on a forum does not automatically make you more knowledgeable than a newbie. I am not saying that I should be a GM or know much about football, you probably are much more knowledgeable than myself when it comes to football. I am just speaking in general terms.

I like Brooks Reed. I like Connor Barwin, & you know I like Mario Williams.

But, it would be nice to have some real LBs playing LB. Cushing is ok against the pass... Demeco is a hair under...... if we get another ILB, he needs to be a true LB.

Wait, he's on to something here... This move would make total sense, but only after we move Cushing to safety.
