It is time for Ted to spend. That doesn't necessarily mean mortgaging the future. He can spend, short term without impacting the future ability. Bringing somebody in, does not mean, they have to be signed long term. Even a 1 or 2 year deal, can get the team what it needs to make push today without strapping them with cap concerns later.

And here's who we should go get along with Paul Kruger.

Should fix our defense up nicely. Imagine having a top 5 defense with our offense.

I know neither will be signed but this time of year is for this.

They will not get any stud FA for 1 or 2 years. They are at their peak or slightly beyond peak. They are all looking for the last big contract.

There is a huge risk on their part to get a short contract thus no incentive to do so.

Sure there is incentive for a short term contract. A Legitimate chance to win a Superbowl for one. Somebody signing a 1 or 2 year deal will make higher salary over those 2 years, than if they sign longer, those are normally setup to sound good, but have money that will never be earned.

Trades are another good way. Can bring in a player, that may have a high cap number on their current team, but their actual salary is reasonable, and that is all we would have to cover, we would not be hit with signing bonus hits because the original team eats that.

Dakota, that's exactly the point. Making, remaking our D into one of the best in the NFL. I think we will make some moves in FA this year. Add another D heavy draft, and Capers will have what he needs, and this should be some fun football to watch.

Ted's D heavy draft last year was in response to the overall neglect in adding personnel on that side of the ball. It is out of character, somewhat, for him to jump into FA, but I think he will. He was very successful early on with Woodson & Pickett.

Zero2Cool (2h) : Damn-Falcons coach Dan Quinn tells reporters that WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited this week but will be “ready to rock” on Sunday.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Packers defense has a red zone INT in each of the last 3 games... Hyde with two of them. (One being the clutch 4thQ INT vs DET in Week 17)
Zero2Cool (4h) : Randall Cobb, Damarious Randall, Quentin Rollins, James Starks, Clay Matthews, Ty Montgomery & Jared Cook. OUT
Zero2Cool (4h) : Packers inactive list when they lost 33-32 to the Falcons week 8.
Zero2Cool (5h) : There is no emphasis, it's just a little bit of info. Take it or leave it. No harm.
Smokey (5h) : Zero, I believe that you and some others place too much emphasis upon data. no harm intended.
Zero2Cool (5h) : It’s the 1st time since 1970 all 4 conference championship teams finished the regular season on winning streaks of 4+ games
TheKanataThrilla (5h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (5h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.
DarkaneRules (6h) : Hyde and Gunter are special and I'm hopeful D Ran gets back to where he can be
mi_keys (6h) : That whole forum is a salt mine. It's beautiful.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Burnett's back up, Kentrell Brice lead team in tackles.
uffda udfa (11h) : Hilarious reading below. I like Carter. Only guy who gets it.

uffda udfa (12h) : Great news.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's
Zero2Cool (16h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (16h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
GoPack1984 (16h) : Dallas can't complain about the officials. They got away with so many defensive holding calls.
uffda udfa (16h) : Dallas radio postgame: Dallas wins 7 out of 10 times.
uffda udfa (16h) : Brice led Pack w/ 6 tackles including the hardest of the game.
uffda udfa (16h) : Post game show said same thing. Everyone wondering how it didn't stay left.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Tornado warning forces players, fans to stay put at AT&T Stadium

uffda udfa (17h) : I don't believe Dallas is better than us. When Aaron is on we're the best.
beast (17h) : The huddle penalty was an odd one. Without Burnett and Nelson.
uffda udfa (17h) : Cowboys radio team initially called Crosby GW NO GOOD. Lol.
DarkaneRules (17h) : we beat an arguably better team at their place without morgan burnett. still can't believe it
uffda udfa (17h) : Re emphasized we aren't the better team. Sour grapes are sweet to me.
