    The Broncos have dropped their punter and the Dolphins have dropped Suggs. Stanly has been average at best and sometimes not good. Suggs can't be any worse then Lundy.

    Is Suggs injured? I was pretty high on him coming out, but I know he has had health issues in his brief career. If healthy, I think he may be better than anyone on our roster (sadly) but he may still have issues with character and injury.

    who is the punter? a rookie? I do think we could use a pro-bowl punter with the inconsistency of our offense, it can make up for alot when you punt the ball 5 or 6 times a game or more. if not a pro-bowler at least one that is consistently belting it 50 yards or so. stanely is pretty good nailing it inside the 20 but not as consistent with the distance punts.

    Most people don't know this, but when a Bronco player is released, the process is that first Shanahan gives them a little pink slip, which they take to HR. At HR, Kubiak gives them a "Welcome to the Texans" folder.

    To put it another way: If you're not good enough to play in Denver, you're always good enough to play in Houston!

    Anyone have any info on why we did not look at picking up Ahmad Carroll? I saw that Jacksonville just signed him.

    Also, does anyone think we might have interest in Jonathon Sullivan. I see that the Patriots just released him.

    A proven run stopper, sorry TJ, but you need better competition as Kubiak would say. With Alfred Malone being released, I would like to see someone like this Anthony Maddox kid released.

    Veteran play is what is needed to help out TJ and the youngin's on the DL. I like the idea of run stopping DT to make an impact right away.

    Strait is more of a cover 2 zone guy, but he was another highly sought draftee. I would claim him, unless there is baggage I am unaware of. I know Carroll had some issues, but hey beggars can't be choosers. We need help back there, and right now, any warm body with some decent physical tools will do at this point. I don't understand why we continue to use these same guys that aren't that talented, but what do I know.

    What kind of team do you guys want to have? If every player who is released by another team comes here guess what, we have a team who is comprised of everyones rejects, bottom of the pit talent, and that doesn't make us better.

    Lawrence Phillips may or may not get jail time, if he doesn't maybe he can take a stab at running back. Better yet Spencer Tillman is only doing college football this year, maybe he can start against the Cowboys. Boobie Miles just may be ready for a comeback, you think we can sign him. Eric Crouch just may be open to playing safety now, how about Matt Stephens I heard he isn't doing anything.

    Nobody is saying (or at least I am not) that we have to keep these guys forever. Maybe they are only fodder for this year, or maybe they work long term, who knows. But, they were highly regarded coming out of college for a reason. It's not like these are PS players we are talking about. We are talking about former 1st rd CB's, who have struggled for whatever reason. You don't think players ever go elsewhere and improve? If not, Steve Foley wants to talk to you after he sobers up.

    I understand what you're saying porky but these guys are washed up now, Strait and Carroll would make Buchanon blush when it comes to coverage. I want to figure out what we have on our team and I as a fan prefer quality over quantity and name value.
