Well, at least we seem to be getting bigger. If we're getting better, well, we will have to wait for the games to begin to figure that out.

Linebacker corps won't be shaby if we get Pace. Pace/Torbor/Clam chowder/Anderson ... With Ferguson anchoring the line and JT on one side and Long on the other..... Then if we could sign a stud DB or safety and we have a respectable defense again...Looks good wouldn't you guys agree? Hey, it could be worse...

Boy I like the defensive front 7 with Pace added. I will venture to say if Pace isn't sighned we will go after howie longs son, if not then the OT.
Imagine pace on 1 side, JT on the other, both can play DE and LB. With Joey Porter back to his natural position, these moves will create a lot of problems for offenses before the snap of the ball.
Is it a 3-4 or 4-3, who's playing lb or de, who's blitzing who's dropping into coverage. The QB's better be on their game or I see a lot of turnovers created. This front seven will mask the defiencies of the secondary also.
The offensive guard from SF is very good and young. He helped F.Gore during his breakout year. Gore wasn't so good last year without him either.
I guess we have seen the last of the trick plays, now we are going to play SMASH mouth football. I like all the moves so far.

I sense a bit of hesitation for the fans to accept the changes as good ones because of the past regime. That's understandable but you have to understand that the prototypes for each position is Parcells' forte. Have no fear we will be a much better team when he finishes tweaking both sides of the line. The Dolphins still are in a very favorable position for the draft and that will give Bill more options to get better quick. Wayne has finally done the right thing here. Parcells is giving us the opportunity to move down or stay pat with the first pick and still get better. Smile! It's only the beginning.

True that, Cowboyfan!
It's what Dennis wrote and Starks to me is a good addition.
There's a lot of work to be done. I wish for a .500 season.:P

The Garbage truck rolled in and Parcells picked & prodded and came up with a bunch a injured players. It must have been when the compacter mashed them up a little bit. Two former Jet discards. It looks like a bunch of special teams players. According to a report that smiley guy played on a lousy 49er team and wasn't even a starter. Now they're not even sure he can pass a physical.Don't get it when there's still some talent out there.

Stop complaining. I will take a`# of solid players at the price they are paying then one high price name evryone knows. We need help in every area. These players are not scrubs but just good players. Again we need many good football players to fill the roster.

With the draft this team can be very good, quickly. They can shore up the O-line with their 2nd rounder maybe(Sam Baker USC), we have rb's ricky and ronnie, we have speed at receiver, in addition the big receiver(Jacksonville) through FA, new young OG just reaching his potential. Decent TE position and maybe another OL and this team is competing this coming year. QB position is iffy but Parcells plays high percentage football with QB's who don't take chances with low probabilty plays.
It looks like Parcells did very good with FA signings considering he got 4 players for almost the price of one player CB Samuels. 8-8 or 9-7 next year doesn't seem unrealistic to me. Parcells has rebuilt everywhere he's gone, it won't be long.

With all due respect, if the staff had not been fired and our previous GM had brought in Josh McCown, this city would be ERUPTING in anger! This is complete nonsense. McCown has done nothing and now he is competing for the starting job? With Matt Ryan hanging out there to be drafted? You must be kidding me. You guys need to lay off the Bill Parcells Kool Aid for a bit.

You are so right! Most of the critics probably go back to their coloring books and crayons after they finish playing on the compooter - Dumbas s es.

p iss and moan that's all you get from most of them.

I like what the Tuna has done without reservation.
