Default Say Goodbye to JT & AP, Hello....

LaRon Landry.....with today's win and a win next week it is over for the JT and AP gang. Just think how much better we are going to be defensively with LaRon roaming in the backfield...whoooo gives me goose bumps.

I'd love for them to improve their O-Line and D-Line, but I don't care who they draft or what position he plays as long as he helps the team get better.

Yes, i agree. With a win next week, Joe Thomas and AP will be but a dream!

But hey, here comes a dream that's just as good! I may be vouching for AP, but Laron Landry is just as good for us, if not better!

Look at it this way: more money for FA.

If we take a safety, I'd rather take Reggie Nelson.

Win, or lose, we're guaranteed a top 10 pick. I could see us taking Darrelle Revis (CB) or Leon Hall (CB) with the 1st pick. Possibly even, Marshawn Lynch (RB).

If we wont fix the O-line in the FA, we need to trade down and pick an O-lineman up.

If we go Safety I want a cover Safety, not a hitting safety. Glenn Earl and ??? with CC backing up would be nice.

So Merriweather Vs. Landry Vs. Nelson, whoever can read and cover is who I want.

Actually, as VY has shown, you don't have to be able to read to be in the NFL. Literacy isn't too important when the talent is good enough.

Neither Sam Baker nor Jake Long are coming out. Both would have been reasonable 6-10 picks. Instead, the OTs fall off a cliff after Joe Thomas, dropping all the way to Levi Brown. Ouch - pretty much kills the idea of taking OT in the 1st without a trade down. Though Arizona won, too - so we could still get above them and maybe snag Thomas.

I really like Joe Staley (Central Michigan). Is there any chance he ends up in the 2nd? Hmm, there is now, but he'll probably work out well.

I said it ages ago and I'll say it again. Reggie Nelson will probably fit our system better. Great cover skills lay's the wood like a lumberjack and is coming on strong. Even though Landry is the more polished player I see more potential in Nelson.

i'll wait to see where we finish and who is coming out but if we do decide to go DT i would rather get glenn dorsey out of LSU. he is just as disruptive in the middle and constantly gets pressure on the QB. but after our last three 1st round picks now play on the d-line i don't think we will go that way again, but hey, the texans always suprise us on draft day.

Maybe closing out the season on a high note with consecutive wins would help entice some top free agents to come play for us?

All three are FS. Landry is the bigger hitter of the three. Merriweather is a wanttabe thug, and his body type has scouts thinking he needs to play CB in the NFL, they think he will not hold up to the pounding that safeties take.

Have not heard the same thing about him but Nelson is on the light side also.

I like Landry because he reminds me of Ronnie Lott in the games I have seen.

our rotation is weak and i'm not sure if you've noticed but none of our DT's draw doubles which allows doubles on our ends. the kid is said to remind scouts of john henderson. he'd be great freeing up demeco ryans even more.
