Then again maybe they were pursuing Steven Jackson and making all that RB talk to throw everyone off!

I like Lacy, Franklin and Bell the best.

That's basically my feeling on the pick--it would be harder to get a similar quality big DL later than it will be to get a RB (especially since no RBs went in the first round).

We just got Lacy in the second. I guess that's why Ted gets paid and we give our opinions for free.

I'm Happy that Ted redeemed himself by grabbing Lacy.
I still want a big fat nasty nose tackle!

Those who wanted the Alabama RB in the first round suddenly look really foolish for complaining.

We should have taken him in the first and then we wouldn't have had to waste our oh so valuable second round pick on him.Sarcasm
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

1st pick = good.
2nd pick = bust.
