    You can't be serious. How do we end up in CAP hell every year if we aren't big spenders? If profit was first, how is it they haven't raised the price of season tickets in four years.

    i agree however the need right now is o-linemen. my mind says JR will go with o-line in the 1st round but my heart says he goes with d-end!

    never too many pass rushers! JR is a smart guy so hopefully he will get some road graders in to help Eli and the running game.

    Thats some crazy talk right there. They have no problem spending when neccessary. In fact, I think they've OVER spent a bit, which is why they have very little room under the cap. The Mara's are not the Glazers, who care much more about Man U than the Bucs.

    Reese summed it up best when he said he would draft a player and then worry about where to play him.

    Seriously. Jeeps post is just about as bad as that poor soul last night that thought our home jerseys were the whites.

    That's what he says, but if you take a look at the picks, they are great players that post a great value where we drafted them. Also, I've noticed that with the exception of Nicks in '09, most of our 1st round picks fill a need the following year.

    It always surprises me when a fan says the team doesn't spend money and/or is only profit driven. What team have they been following? We have had dozens of threads in the last month where the shrinking CAP has been the focal point of discussion. You don't get there without overspending.

    I just couldn't understand the blue jersey thread

    He is truly a master at the draft for the most part. Not 100% effective, but more right than wrong.
