hmm they all look eligible to me--not sure what you two are on about

j/k good catch guys--good thing I'm not writing the play book Went ahead and pulled johnson off the line making bruener eligible, and fixed the right side.

What I like about the that line up is Gaffney. He is more of a slot reciever than an outside it appears. That would help take pressure off of AJ to spread the ball more and be more preductive.

We ended up 30th in defense.
Everytime I see something about McCree, the words "we picked him up off the waivers" is behind his name. This is true, but it was not because he could not play FS, it was because he got caught in the middle. Thanks to Ediddy 73s input on this subject last time this is some of the reasons McCree was put on waivers.
1. Coaching change Coughlin to Del Rio
2. Del Rio drafted Rashean Mathis
3. McCree got on Del Rio's bad side
4. Jax needed the money McCree was taking up to sign K. Johnson and Strokes.

McCree wasn't the Matt Stevens of the Jags
Don't forget he has the longest int return for a TD in the Texan short history so far.

I never said he couldn't play....or well, we wouldn't have picked him up, but the bottom line is he wasn't talented enough to stick on their roster. I'm not sure that is debatable. He sure wasn't carrying a large salary there.

Talking

If I was Palmer, I would have a serious hard-on if I saw that defensive formation. Is Peek going to walk out to cover Gaff, or is Coleman going to come up at the snap count? I'm going to throw a 4 yard out to Gaff after Bradford clears the CB with a slant!! TOUCHDOWN!!! LOL!

True, he can play. He was an upgrade over Stevens and I am still thinking it's possible that he might not be much worse (if at all) than Coleman ends up being. I seem to recall that Coleman was tried at Safety once before.

The only real question is are we smarter than the Jaguars coaches (by "we" I mean the Texans coaches/braintrust). Was he not talented enough to stick on their roster or did they make a mistake and let him go. Did their drafting of another safety mean that he wasn't getting the job done? From what I understand his previous season was pretty good. This we may never know but I think he's going to go into camp to try and beat Coleman out of the starting job.

I hope he gets a fair shot at it. I like Coleman and I like McCree and if McCree gets a fair chance to keep his position then to win it Coleman will have to be better than him which means that no matter what happens we're not starting Matt Stevens. I'm happy, what was the question again?
