    LOL 2001.

    Of the guys you mention, I'd like to see Vincent Jackson, Zach Miller & Dhani Jones. Woodley is a pipe dream, true.

    And I'd also like to see Ronnie back if the price is right.

    I'll take Dhani Jones mainly because I like his tv show. And his bow ties

    Well first of all who else is excited to see Harry Potter finally made into a movie? There's also this movie coming out called Shrek, sounds weird. Not sure if that's going to last. And I really hope the Dolphins make a trade for Ricky Williams someday, the Saints are not using him right. And they're never going to win a Super Bowl. :up:

    Haha sorry I had to, that error is great. And I actually wrote 2001 or 2002 on an assignment recently.

    I think we definitely need another WR, but I don't see them shelling out big bucks for one with Marshall, Bess and Hartline already. But, in case of injury such as now, we'll still need one. Should've kept Camarillo. Tight End is important, but Haynos was fairly good. And of course the middle of the O-Line is an important need. One could argue QB, but we'll see what happens the next few games. From that list, Phins should go after Marcedes Lewis or Zach Miller.

    Well, Dilfer is a FA this year. He won the Super Bowl but didn't look good doing it. Derrick Mason is going to be a Free Agent out in Tennessee but most experts predict he'll end up in Baltimore. Priest Holmes is a FA at RB but it looks like the Chiefs have a hard on for him. We might be able to snatch up Marcus Spriggs out of Buffalo at RT.

    As for the draft, we have the 26th pick. Some people think we'll be taking Jamar Fletcher but **** that. Reggie Wayne has been beasting in Miami. Todd Heap out of Arizona State looks to be a nice project at TE. We could try Drew Brees at QB but I'm not sure if we're ready to use a first round pick for that guy. Issues with his shoulder too.

    Other prospects include:

    Steve Smith, WR; Utah
    Adrian Wilson, SS; NC State
    Shaun Rogers, DT; Texas
    Matt Light, OT; Purdue

    I'm just hoping Wannstedt doesn't **** this up taking Jamar Fletcher or something. At least Jason Taylor is looking amazing.

    That post just made me really sad. Really makes me realize how bad we've been.

    This should be our absolute 1st priority, even if it means not signing anyone else in FA other than the guys on our current team.

    I don't know if he'll get away from the Raiders, but Miller would be perfect!! Miller & Mankins would open up our draft big time!!!

    I too would prefer Miller but, I don't see the Raiders or Jaguars letting either of them go.

    Damn shame we can't toss Tamme into the mix, as I wouldn't mind him either. I know he's not the prototypical Parcells(not that he's involved anymore but, his proteges are) TE (Lewis would be the guy) as he lacks in size; weight not height but I think he brings a bit more speed to the table, which is something this team is lacking.

    Only guys I would want there is James Jones, Tyler Thigpen, and Ronnie. Maybe Josh Wilson too, but I kinda want to see what we do with Al Harris and if Nolan Carroll can develop. James Jones could be pretty solid for us, I feel though.

    I agree too. I'd love to have Tamme too. We already know Fasano is our blocker, so I'd hate to have another slow Parcells guy in here to do more of the same. F*** Parcells strategy.... F*** it in the ear.

    Tamme or Miller would be great to help us create some actual scheme and formation variations/mismatches. I'm so envious of the vision the Pats had when they drafted both Gronkowski AND Hernandez and subsequently use them all over the field the way they do...... and Brady freakin loves these big bodies!!!!

    I'd jump all over Ahmad Bradshaw. I absolutely love his running style and would kill for him to become a Fin.
