Last year at this time there was a pessamistic attitude reguarding cap room and convincing free agents to come here.

No more worries about if the free agents will come here because of Coughlin. There are some worries about cap room but in all honesty I don't share them. We don't need 5 starting quality players like we did last year. We will clear up enough cap room to sign the neccessary players. Not many shared my fealings last year that we would make a huge splash in free agency and all we did was sign 5 quality starters. We are 2 starting quality pickups from contending(OLB&CB). Plus we have all our picks this year. Resign a few of our free agents, sign a few solid free agents, and fill in depth with a quality draft and we are on our way. We are a young team on the rise and Ernie Acorsi wants a title and will do anything at this point to get this team ready for a title run. I love this time of year. The time when teams are built. Can't wait for March 3rd.

As you said we are indeed a few players away from a very good team and well balanced

i might add. I think on the offensive side of the ball we have everything in place but

a 3rd WR. Once we get a speedy , crafty player with good moves and great hands that will

go over the middle or deep and our offense will be one of the most potent in the NFL!

 

The seondary needs help of course and I think this is where FA comes in.

We need help right away and at CB immediately! Also at safety alexander has

experience but too slow now so another FA is essential at that position to enhance

wilson's ability. Webster needs more experience and Deloatch needs more experience

as well. Will Peterson is still a big question mark so draft picks are very likely at CB

and also a LB to replace Griesen who more than likley is gone.

 

Everthing aside from a 3 WR should be D this year CB's Safety and a LB!

 

We need Feagles to stay put one more year!

 

 

Will be a great season coming up !

Nice points, welcome to the boards.

 

Can't wait for next season either. As soon as the game on January 8th ended, I was filled with excitement for some reason for 06. It should make for a controversial, fun off-season which will hopefully give way to a contender that can go all the way.

If Moss falls to the second round I would absolutley jump on him. If not there are some interesting options in free agency like Warrick & Jurevicius. I agree all our offense needs is a 3rd WR and possibly a pure blocking TE such as Dan Campbell. Everything else should be defense as you said.

 

The CB can be be solidified with one free agent and a high draft pick. The safety position will need a starter at FS (either a high draft pick or a FA) and SS will need a backup with the departure of Williams (in the late rounds of the draft). If Will Peterson is a no go look for a second low tier FA to be signed.

 

The LBer position will be filled by a high draft pick and a free agent(Julian Peterson or Witherspoon). Green and Emmons are question marks one of the 2 will be kept the other will be cut. If Green is healthy he will be back.

 

And yes please Feagles please stick around for at least one more year.

I'd rather Whitherspoon, who is on the rise and is asking for less then Peterson who has come off an injury and has clearly lost a step and is asking for a lot of money.

 

I would also love Moss in the second round. I think it'd be an awesome draft if we managed to get Cromartie in the first round after a very nice combine and managed to land Moss in the second. Then we'll see what we get from there.

Hey what up man. Good to see you're here. I'm looking forward to having a great year next year. This is my favorite part of the season. I love the draft and Free Agency.

 

There is reason for excitement next year. We have a young team with a young franchise QB who is going to continue to get better.

I like it but I can't stand it. I don't know about you but I'm a season ticket holder so in mid March I'm thinking about hells bells being played during opening kickoff. And when the season comes, so does school. It's too fast anyway, the season that is.

 

Give you an example. Two nights ago I had a dream it was Thursday Night opener and we were playing the Colts. We walk up to the ticket guy and my Dad takes out his wallet and there's a hole in it and no tickets :doh:

 

More of a nightmare if you ask me.

I'm still playing football so there is still football in my life. I guess after my last game March 25th I will start to go through withdrawl. But I love seeing the team being developed. Maybe the word favorite was off a bit obviously the season is better. But the NFL offseason is my second favorite sporting event then baseball then basketball.

I'm turning into a big baseball guy so I can't say the same. However, there is always interest in football... except in mid to late February and July.

 

I play football ocasionally with my friends no matter what the season. And in some of my classes I just feel like randomly doing what Peyton Manning does at the LOS out of sheer boredom :LMAO:

 

I love my football man :rock:

I always thought this notion that Coughlin would scare away free agents was ridiculous. Money talks ... and Coughlin signed a ton of UFAs when in Jax. Plus, we play in the most visible market in pro sports...

 

East Rutherford, New Jersey? :P

So does TCs resume (spell?) in Jacksonville. His record speaks for itself.

I think you're being a bit overzealous in who you predict we'll bring in as a free agent at OLB. I really don't see Peterson or Witherspoon. Both likely will be out of our price range. I also think 3rd WR is a grossly overrated position. As far as I'm concerned your strength at WR3 should be more in the event the guy needs to start due to injury. I'm not convinced that Carter or Taylor couldn't excel in Toomer's role if he were to go down with an injury (assuming we keep Carter). However I'm grossly opposed to the notion of overspending on a free agent WR who would be brought in just as a 3rd option. We already have three solid receiving options when you include Shockey. This offense is never going to hinge on that 3rd WR slot.

 

I do agree with your recollections of last season. The "we won't attract FA because of Coughlin" banter was a joke. Fortunately, I don't recall too many of the posters I'd consider smart whining about this.

His record as a head coach screams of mediocrity. Nothing to attract or dissaude UFAs...

But taking an expansion team the the AFC championship game in just their second season and taking them to another one later shows that he can win some games. I recall that they won a post-season game like 63-14 against the Dolphins or something like that.

He also finished with 3 consecutive losing season in Jax. If anything, that would be more prominent in a player's mind. I doubt either thought process entered any prospective UFAs line of thougt...
