    Orr impressed me because he never quit playing hard, honestly we all know that some of the guys shut it down last season, it was obvious. I don't know if he was playing for a starting spot, or if thats just his nature, but if it's the latter, we need a few more like him.

    Orr and Polk are great signings. Orr will be a starting OLB for us next season IMO. Polk I think could be a real competitor for the starting MLB spot..and could end up as our starter next season.

    Phew, EXTREMELY happy we re-signed Shantee Orr. I knew after the Falcons game that this guy was going to be special one day.

    Hopefully soon we'll see Peek signing.

    If we line up right now, he's our MLB. Now we may sign somebody else in FA
    or draft a player to start, but he's atleast valuable depth for us.
    And I'm happy we got Orr resigned. Just not sure where he's gonna be in the
    4-3, OLB or DE ?

    He will be a OLB I beleive...I love Orr. He really showed me alot last year. As for polk hes a beast on a good day and a wimp on a bad day. Hopefully he can find a median!

    not just last season, but in late 2003 as well. he has been a legitamite pass rusher whenever he sees action. i wouldnt mind having him as an outside LB in the 4-3 and kailee wong at MLB.

    greenwood, wong, and orr....thats not TOO bad. it would probably suffice long enough for us to address more pressing needs, like the need for a 2nd cover corner. with flanagan signed, the only other real pressing for offense need would be drafting reggie bush and maybe a 2nd reciever. the front office has scored an A+ so far. we got a starting DE, possible starting FB in jameel cook, a starting recieving TE in jeb putzier, and a new center in mike flanagan. thats not too shabby.

    There's no way Babin and Peek can both be starting DEs. Weaver was brought in to be the strongside DE. He might move inside in 3rd and long situations, but it will be Weaver-Johnson-Smith-?? in the front.
