    I offered Phillip Rivers, not Jay Cutler.</P>

    you ased for Adrian Peterson...I told you he was off the table...I told you I was trying to get rid of Romo and Moss....noone came at me with a better offer then Matt...I gave it 2-3 days.
    [/quote]</P>


    I was negotiating. I would have gone Rivers and any WR other than Jackson or Johnson for Romo and Austin.</P>


    And the deal you made with Matt, kills your team and makes Matt the favorite. Thats hard to do given his lack of FF ability. You would have done better to give me AP and Romo for Rivers and Stevie.</P>

    No he's not, his sideline to sideline pursuit is one of his greatest weaknesses.

    <DIV class=description>Michigan State Spartans inside linebacker Greg Jones is a highly-productive prospect who was outstanding at the college level, but due to a number of problems in his technique and style of play, he may need to switch positions at the next level.


    Jones accumulated 464 tackles in his four years as a Spartan. In 2009, he had a great year with 153 total tackles and 9 sacks. <FONT size=5>Jones plays fast</FONT> and can be difficult to block when he's attacking the quarterback. His strong-suit may simply be his ability to bring down the ball-carrier. He is a violent tackler. He is playing at his best when everything is in front of him as he is a natural downhill linebacker.


    The issues come when he must drop back into coverage. He is capable of handling tight ends and running backs on short routes <FONT size=5>as he plays sideline-to-sideline very well</FONT>. But he plays very tight in his hips when dropping back into coverage and due to his stature, he isn't effective at defending the deep middle part of the field (which will be his main priority as an inside linebacker).


    When he gets engaged by a blocker, he can be engulfed rather easily. If he's unable to find the edge, he gets eaten up and taken out of the play. Often times, he plays without regard to his assignment and is too aggressive.


    Jones has a healthy mix of good and bad attributes and depending on the defensive scheme, many teams may overlook him since he does not fit what they need their linebackers to do. At the 2011 NFL Combine, he ran a lackluster 4.80 40-yard dash. It will be very hard for teams to ignore the fact he was a three-time first-team selection to the All Big Ten Team and two-time All-American.


    Jones projects as a third or fourth round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.

    I will trust what redeyejedi has to say 10 times out of 10.

    You will be hardpressed to find a good starting LBer in a 43 that ran 4.8 or slower.

    there are virtually zero 43 lbers that ran 4.8 or slower that are any good.

    His measurables and film got him drafted in the 6th round.

    Re: THEE SWAG THREAD



    On Sunday, John Michael Vincent of ESPN 1070 in Indianapolis reported that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning needs another surgical procedure on his neck.
    Though the team kind-of/sort-of indirectly denied it, JMV was at least
    in the right church (even if occupying the wrong pew), given the flurry
    of reports and developments that followed JMV’s information.</p>


    Now, another Indianapolis radio host is upping the ante.</p>


    Jake Query of WNDE, citing two unnamed sources whom he trusts,
    reports that Manning already has had another procedure on his neck, and
    that<font size="5"> he’ll miss the entire 2011 season.</font></p>


    Manning’s status remains cloaked in mystery, in part because the team
    is likely sharing the bare minimum — and in part because the condition
    from which he suffers involves complex neurological issues that can’t be
    addressed by taking two aspirin or “wanting it.” But with afternoon
    drive-time host in Manning’s home market reporting that Manning’s
    condition is far more serious than currently believed, it’s not too
    early to at least consider whether we’ll see Manning play at all in
    2011.</p>
