    He had an amazing game, he was all over. Check out his stats, 16 tackles (12 solo) and a sack.

    Yes, for the love of God, pay the man. (And I think they will. Not worried at all, I just wish they would do it quick to make 59 happy.)

    The fact that they haven't given Ryans any long term security is idiotic. They have wasted an incredible amount of money on chumps since they have been in the league and are going to play hardball with Ryans to the point where he is openly disapointed and discussing it in the Chronicle. Sometimes I don't know what this team is thinking.

    Well, feelings have sure changed since the off season when posters wanted to trade or cut Demeco because he was greedy, whiney, easy to replace, and not very good since his rookie year. All of that was based on some perceived "disloyalty" for complaining about his contract. He was also be lumped in with Daniels and Robinson I guess.

    I tried to make the point a few weeks ago that Rick Smith's job is to to sign and keep good players as well as protect the salary cap. Protecting the cap by not figuring out a way to lock up good players to long term deals is not doing a "great" job. It is just getting by and pushing problems into the future.

    Barring a miraculous breakthrough in negotiations on the CBA, they're in no danger of losing Ryans any time soon. Why shell out the big bucks before you have to? Ryans will get his money when it makes sense for the team to give it to him. For now atleast, the best thing for the organization is to keep players at the best price possible. For Ryans that is his rookie contract, possibly the top RFA tender next year, and the Franchise tag beyond that.

    A long term plan of high tenders and franchising players to keep them is not in the best interest of the club. The franchise tag is expensive and limited in number. There is really no good substitute for succesfully negotiating contracts for players the team wants to keep, especially one that claims it is building through the draft.
