I would hate to see us trade up in this years draft, because it is very questionable at the top of the draft. I think we should stay where we are or possibly even try to trade down a couple of spots. I also believe as a team we are at crossroads- on the brink of becoming a great team, but still fragile enough to fall apart, so I believe as a franchise this is our most important draft to date. We could be lookin back on this draft as the one that put us over the top or the one that broke us.

The handwriting was on the wall. They basically told Foreman and Sharper that they would be traded or cut. Sharper really wasn't tradeable because he has a large cap figure with a one-year contract. What incentive does he have to renegotiate a contract for a trade when he knows he can be cut and pick his team? He became a lame-duck player. I think they kept him longer than Foreman strictly as a PR move.

Those of you that had Sharper thrown in as a key trade on draft day were fooling yourselves.

Sharper was a cap move only. Both management and his teammates liked him. He was a smart, classy player. He's just not as dominating as his tackle numbers appeared. The middle linebacker in the 3-4 is going to get a boatload of tackles. He didn't put fear into anyone he had to cover. Running backs weren't concerned about the severity of his hits. That said, he did his job and did it well... just not millions and millions of dollars well.

Derrick Johnson is worth trading up for. Not many players I would say that about this year, but he is very possibly the best linebacker since Arrington came out of Penn State 4 years ago.

I've been thinking the same thing.

Exactly! Hate to see him depart, but as an expansion pick his only cost to us was his contract. Easy come, easy go. Good luck Jamie.

Johnson has become this year's taylor. All I heard last year was how great S. Taylor was and how we should trade up to get him, but we stayed exactly where we were and drafted Dunta Robinson, now how many people on this board would trade D. Rob for Taylor. I have no doubt that Johnson is going to be a fine linebacker and if we falls to us great, but I would hate to see us trade up for him when there is going to be excellent linebackers and excellent defensive players at our spot. Also to get johnson we are probably going to have to trade up to tenn.'s spot and I'm not willing to hand them over multiple picks again.

They are clearing the decks for sure. Now, is it in preparations for this year or next? IMO, they are looking to get younger and faster, get the experience this year (POSSIBLE playoff spot) and then expect a deep playoff run in 06.

with the hole now left, there are a couple scenario's the most thought of one is peek greenwood, wong, and babin. but lets not forget that dashon polk played some pretty good football those last three games filling in for foreman, im not saying he is a savior, but he is a good player that did a lot of good for us last year when we held that streak over the last 3-4 games

I think (or I atleast hope), that this means Casserly has a plan that he thinks is going to work to upgrade our team at ILB. Whether that's trading up for someone like DJ, or a later choice who he feels will excel in our system. Would've it been so bad to just let him play out the final year of his contract rather than releasing him? I'm missing something unless Casserly foresees finding a better fit for us in the draft, or maybe in Wong..? We're not pressed for cash since we didn't make any huge FA signings, and he'd be off the cap when his contract expired anyways...?

Casserly said that it was a cap issue. Instead of waiting till next year, he is willing to cut ties this year.

Thought at first that it was an April Fool's joke, but I cause it's not.

Can't say that I'm overly shocked, the cap figure he was carring was really to much for him. I am kinda sad they couldn't trade him, but I quess it just goes to show that no team thought he was worth the money.

Good luck and safe travels Mr. Sharper.

honestly i think casserly will do one of two things...if the price is right he'll trade up for derrick johnson...making all us fans happy...if the price is too high he'll trade down for extra picks...and select either marcus spears, david pollack, carlos rogers, or one of the receivers...our starting line-up for linebackers will be peek wong greenwood babin

anyone see a problem with this senerio?
