Crazy?? Look at the depth and talent of this team.......that is what 43 picks in 4 years delivers!


Yeah, we're having to let go guys that would have started in '05. The forty five we suit up Monday Night are so much better, as a whole, than three years ago it's INSANE.

I also give Ted Thompson credit for having the ability to let go of guys at the right time. He put Green, Hondo, Wahle, Rivera, Flanny, and others, on the road at a point where the cost of keeping them would no way have been worth what they produced from there on out.

Can you imagine if we were counting on A. Green to carry our running game. It makes me shutter. I mean good luck Houston and all, but geez, that's just not going to work.

Even the J. Walker deal turned out after ALL the CRAP Ted Thompson TOOK about that deal. The kind of money he wanted at that time (when cap money was really tight also by the way) and all the injuries he's had since then?

You can get nit picky about a guy let go here or there that had maybe one good year since but overall Ted Thompson has been very efficient in this area.

The NFL is a young man's game, and right now NO ONE is doing it better.

Warhawk - As much as you and I disagreed about the whole Favre situation, I'm in complete agreement with you here. I love Ahman Green, but knew in '06 he was already a shell of what he used to be.

I was bummed when the Walker deal didn't work out, but within a year realized Ted Thompson made the right decision.

To tell you the truth, I didn't know that much about salary cap until I started reading that other website, and realized Ted Thompson was right about that. He's done a fine job with the salary cap.

It's a good thing to be young. We have a long future this way, and we should be good for years to come.
