1) Some people are questioning why we took COOK, but if you listen and read you will find Cook was taken because you need a quick smart small full back who leads the way in Kubiak's offensive sets. It was deemed by Kubiak that this is one of the people he needed and that is also why the other full back is being looked at. As an added plus the guy is a hard worker and is a very good special team's player who sacrifices his body for the team. He seldom carries the ball but he is also an excellent receiver. Remember, Kubiak emphasized the team aspect of things at the news conference. 2) Some people are questioning why we took the receiver from Cincy, but if you listen and read you will find He was taken because he is of excellent character, has good to excellent hands, is a possession reciever who does an excellent job blocking down field, and is an above average special teams player. Again, he has fought his way into starting positions and sacrificed his body for his team. He is similar in size and speed to AJ, has way better hands, and will command coverage. Again, Kubiak has emphasized Team play. 3) Some people are questioning why we took Weaver, but if you listen and read you will find He is a fine young DE who is smart, articulate, a leader, and is talented enough to require two defensive players to stop his penetration into the opposition's back field. Off course we also had a need at that position and again Kubiak in his news conference was more than estatic about this acquistion. The guy is a team player and has a big motor. He will make it possible for previous acquisitions to play where they should be playing. Again let's emphasize that all of the guys are young, talented, smart, hard working team players of good character. They fit the new schemes that Kubiak and his staff are trying to put in place. These are people KUBIAK wanted and Casserly got them for him. Actually they have been classified as steals by some people in the know. Did we get everyone we wanted, of course not. But we did go get some very good people probably at very reasonable prices considering what is happening in this FA as a whole. Are these people flashy right now, no. But how about most of the people NE picks up. Most are not flashy, but the end results are flashy. Remember, its how they play as a team and not individually that matters. I think we have done an excellent job so far and am very excited about this fall. Should we reach the play offs this fall, and it could happen, you will really be wondering what happen. The real answer to that will be that was how bad the previous coaching staff was.
