UPDATE 4:59 p.m.: Joe now has more than 100 votes in, so feel free to freak out if you must.
I need to clarify on what a “hater” is. I think Dominick and the Glazers have done an average to poor job up to yesterday in both drafting and, in both the quantity and quality of the free agent signings (and attempted signings) since Dominick was hired.
But, I like the last two days signings’, and I generally like the coaches that have been hired this time around (though I think the Butch Davis thing is juvenile).
I know you guys consider someone like 2.2 a hater. But, I saw someone in another thread attempt to call me out as a hater.
I love the Bucs, but, I call a spade a spade and don’t drown myself in the kool- aid anymore….be that what it may.
@Scotty It is bad right now in every Saints chat room. They are cursing Nicks calling him everything you can think off. Heck, take a trek over to ESPN and see just how bad it is. They are attacking this guy as if he did something wrong.
Nicks is an excellent signing, barring injury he makes the offense better.
Wright is a game tackler, flexible, tough – probably an overachiever. Solid worker, the antithesis of Talib. However, his man
Skills are okay, not great. He is not a lockdown type player, which makes drafting Claiborne more probable now. If they draft Claiborne, this makes sense.
Everyone who tried to argue with me that Biggers can play needs to be quiet now.
VJax would not have been my choice. He has good size and athleticism which are badly needed. His hands are questionable. He has had 2 DUIs and is in danger of league suspension if he is not a model citizen. He also has some history of being a malcontent. He can stretch the defense so his presence will make a difference.
All in all the team is improved, Schiano will utilize these men appropriately. Much more help is needed on defense.
I think that VJ was probably the most talented option available. My concern is that he is trending down and has league discipline issues – these are important considerations.
Anyone remember Talib and THC Jax?
Why Ignore my compliments on the Nicks signing, and general praise on Wright?
I am just being straight with you sheep. These players make the roster much more talented. The Glazers should have been open to acquiring players previously but I am glad they reversed course and admitted this build through the draft with a fraud coach was a debacle.
Thomas…haven’t you been wrong enough times in the past weeks, months, etc.???? Now you want to add more stupidity to your posts?? V-Jax will be fine and I’m sure his contract reflects that if he has any issues the guaranteed money vanishes.
You’re exactly right Bobby. V Jax gets 2 years of guaranteed money. After that, he has tro earn it. Even the pundits are saying, the way the Bucs structured the contracts is genius. Give credit where credit is due. Us sheep clearly understand that Rockstar needs to get credit here.
2.2, it would be refreshing for you to man up every now and then. Being critical of the Glazers is one thing, but trying to find the pit in the cherry pie is ridiculous. V Jax has bad hands turned into “I’m just saying V Jax is on decline”. That’s just more BS. I got 1100+ yards in 2011 that says you don’t have a pot to piss in. Knock off the negativity. It’s tired.
So everyone’s going gaga over Richardson…does anyone think that there’s a chance Monty Ball will still be there at pick #36? Dude’s pretty solid and has worked with our new O-line coach should be pretty familiar with his tendencies.
Everyone on NFL Network agreed we should draft Richardson. Just curious Joe, are they all idiots? Do you honestly think they aren’t very educated, perhaps even more than you and the rest of us? I still think we draft Claiborne, but I think the right pick is Richardson (especially with the Nicks signing). Regardless, they are both good picks, and neither is “irresponsible” as you suggest Richardson is.
