I was pretty big on getting Winston, but that was after I was big on this guy they didn't take and that guy they didn't take....and Winston's not our LT anyway.

Tell me about Darius Walker stretching the play and threatening the edge. Tell me about how you thought Chris Taylor looked the past two weeks doing that. How about Ahman Green? Has he actually "done" any of that yet in 2008? Has he done it in the past year? Green isn't even a threat to suit up much less get to the edge.

Right now I see Slaton as a possibility and Chris Brown as playing the Ron Dayne role in a somewhat faster package but the man is, just like Ahman Green before him a "hope" and not a certainty.

Without Dayne we remain unable to threaten the defense with big play ability (at this time). That being the case I'd be more comfortable with a guy I knew could grind out 100 yards on a good day. Either way we're looking at being a pass first offense this year and maybe someone we have will step up and excel in that role until we can get to the 2009 draft.

I was right about the Texans needing to get a big body at a DT/NT spot to be able to shield Demeco from blockers. We got Okam. Hopefully he'll grow into what we need.

I was wrong about Kubiak being able to salvage David Carr but once I got on the ABC bandwagon halfway through the season, I was right about them getting a replacement. I think I was right about our line not being as bad as DC made it look.

I was right about the 8-8 season last year.

I think I've been right about a few other things, too.

(And I've been wrong about more than a few things.)

Nomads??? We are the only ones that have our own spots.... If Platinum lot closes tomorrow, there is no way I'm moving to Orange. I've heard strange sausage stories about Orange Lot. And that's not evening mentioning FILO's balloon story....

True... we can play him right next to Frank Okam. Cuz we all know if Okam doesn't work out at DT he's switching to Offensive Guard.
