Default whats the next move?

I believe that Ahman was a good pick up and im stoked about Andre restructuring his contract...now i think we should put the majority of our free agents money into signing Ken Hamlin, and then get others for depth...what do yall think should be next???

That would be neat if we signed Ken Hamlin. If we didn't, we should definitely draft Landry NOT Quinn. If we did sign Hamlin, we should draft Levi Brown or trade down and get Darrelle Revis. Ken Hamlin & Cooper Carlisle are the only FA signings I could see.

1. Can't win the big game
2. Defense Wins Championships
3. LaRon Landry could very well be the next Ed Reed / Brian Dawkins.
4. FS is a bigger priority than QB

I also get this feeling in the pit of my stomach, that Quinn is the next Rick Mirer.

I'd like to see them sign an o-linesman and another d-back.

1) Teams win games, not individual players

We need help in our secondary.. especially in our division.

Landry would be prefferable to me than Quinn. Now, if Russell was available, that would be a more difficult decision to make.

In addition, I wasn't very impressed with Notre Dame's schedule in 2006 either:
Opponent
at Georgia Tech
Penn State
Michigan
at Michigan State
Purdue
Stanford
UCLA
at Navy
North Carolina
at Air Force
Army
at USC

Couldn't they fit the Coast Guard Academy on their schedule??

I don't follow college football, but I keep hearing that next year's draft will be a great time to get a QB. We also have a lot of needs, particularly DBs, O-linemen, and OLBs, so I think we should wait on the QB situation.

Nothing really against Quinn, but I don't want him.

Notre Dame played one of the 20 toughest schedules in the country last year, by almost any measure you use. Michigan, USC, Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Purdue, UCLA... that's a deep collection of talented teams. Did they have their weak wins in there? Absolutely - just like Texas has its wins over Sam Houston State, North Texas, Rice, Baylor, etc. It's college football - every team has 3-5 automatic wins per season.

I'm not sure that I would necessarily agree FS is a bigger priority than other positions, but I agree with your premise that there are glaring holes that need to be addressed ASAP before the QB position.

Thats not to say, that the QB position doesn't need to be addressed because it does. I would just rather draft a QB later on and bring him along over the next couple of seasons. Not invest a high draft choice - AGAIN on a QB.

Last time I checked, Michigan State was firing their head coach, USC and Michigan spanked Notre Dame, Penn State was nothing to write home to momma about, they squeaked by Georgia Tech and picked on the military acadamies - giving them a 10-2 record.. Again, I will say that I am not impressed.

Now, their bowl against LSU and Jamarcus Russell.....Result: OWNED

I beleive there are others on here who feel like Notre Dame is over rated year after year, and many times their players are swept up in the hype machine. I beleive this to be the case with Rick Mirer.......errrrr Brady Quinn.

Yes, because Rick Mirer's the only ND QB to play in the NFL.

ND has a whole lost to those teams....i dont know if you watched the games at all???? but there defense sucked horribly......brady quinn did a great job and he did his part.....his defense and offensive surroundings werent that stout.....we need a qb that is better than hand-off material......so dont compare brady quinn s team to another team...its not a realistic comparision....

Yeah, that's what I was trying to say. Landry could be awesome, we need to stay where we are and draft him-or trade down-. I wouldn't be bothered at all if Drew Stanton or Kevin Kolb sat and watched for a year or two. Just because a QB isn't drafted in the 1st round doesn't mean that he would suck. Draft Stanton / Kolb in the 3rd / 4th and let Kubiak "groom" him.

Somehow, when the experts bash Quinn, they NEVER mention my Buckeyes. AJ Hawk Destroyed Quinn in the 2006 Fiest Bowl, and Quinn looked like Smith in the Nat'l Championship.
