    I say its a lack of effort. Stake out the Florham Park car lot and you'll get scoops. Unfortunately Kellen Winslow Jr is otherwise engaged but we need someone with his commitment to surveillance.

    The D-line should be pretty solid. No excuses if they dont get pressure. That's a lot of money and resources spent towards them

    I never heard of this cat before we signed him.

    Read an article on his Achilleas. He has a condition where a large bone spur was pushing the Achilleas off the heel bone. It actually happened on one leg, and they did a preventive on the other, removing the spur. He said it was like a 3rd leg bone growing out of his foot.

    He should be good to go now that they know what was going on and fixed it. The Bengals were pushing hard for him too.

    Yeah, somebody needs to hire that guy that was hiding in the bushes and taking blurry pictures of the ceiling during the coaching search. That guy had some moxy.

    I am excited about our defense. With Q, Lawson, Rankins and JFM we could have a great pass rush. Hall looks like a guy who could be very good. It would be nice to add another corner but we also need a lb and a slot corner. The defense looks exciting. I am sad about not getting Thuney but really excited by the players we have added.

    It's an amazing deal. Only $750,000 dead money if cut next year.

    I hope he stays healthy and can return to his 2018 form. He reminded me of Kris Jenkins in video of that year the way he was just manhandling and shoving OL around and back into their QBs.

    Jenkins is a pretty good comparison. And healthy Jenkins was a PROBLEM.

    Thanks. Jenkins was a beast vs both the run and the pass. I'll settle for a mini-Jenkins version vs the pass.

    Good point, I think he'll be a great rotational player, maybe even more than rotational.
