Wu-Tang Hokie Raider:
Anything over 9 mil a year is too much for him... he's a B+ MAYBE when he isn't hurt. OT's in the draft are better than any OT's in free agency. We shouldn't fight too hard to keep ANY of our players. No one is THAT good.

Houston I think we should keep... but he is the equivalent to the smartest kid on the short bus. We are garbage, it will take a long time to rebuild and get quality players. I think we are better suited building from the draft which is what Reggie has said from day 1. To keep it exciting in the meantime, we should get some stunners... Vick, Revis type of players just to make it fun to watch.

But I still feel like our future is 2 or 4 years away. Really, this is the FIRST year we have gotten out of the mess that Al left us in... our stadium is a bigger issue, who would wanna go play there... it's not something you can really be proud of.

Building consistently good, playoff teams is a process... It sucks, and we aren't used to not making a splash year in and year out with big contracts and big names... but what has it done for us recently. New league, new rules, new way of business. Don't hold on to your money, but don't spend star money on mediocrity.

Of course we aren't better than 4-12, we have a team of mediocre players. And anyways, who cares if we go 4-12 or 8-8 or even 9-7... unless you get to and win the Super Bowl, who gives a fuck.

Also rumor mill is that The Donkeys are interested in Lamarr Houston, it's just a rumor but   :-[

Seems there are alot of people interested in houston which worries the hell out of me. What the HELL is their plan. why have they not made it a point to sign these players by now. Each day that passes makes me more worried.

Matty Raider:
I promised I wouldn't bug out but the delay in signing these guys is making me a bit nervous.  I see it from both angles, no way should Reggie overpay for these guys but we have to resign our core players.  We can't just let guys walk every year.  Taking your emotions out of it, neither guy is Pro Bowl player nor do they deserve top tier.  Neither one is a top 10 at their position but they are our key guys, they MUST be resigned.  I am sticking to having faith in McKenzie, more so in the FA Department, the guy can find players....but we must resign our good existing ones!  We shall see.  I am waiting (im)patiently............
