, craps + our #2 pick( i had suggested #1, but like your idea better) for a guy, Williams, wanting big $$ from Steelers is something i have floated a week or so. It would be a terrific coup, in that Williams is a #1 WR, and our #1 WR paywise is closer to a #4 or #5. Surely steelers have seen craps circus catches, which everyone remembers, plus he was #7 pick overall (?) in draft. Seems like a good trade for steelers if we sweeten it up. They get craps for williams, plus our 2nd . Let them endure craps' me, me, me, and disappearance in late season/ playoffs. Getting craps gone for equal value is a huge plus for 9ers, plus we would actually get a real #1 WR. I love your improvement of my idea.
, re: fleener....If he is the best receiver at pick #30, then hey, a guy who catches the ball, regardless of where he lines up(TE or WR) is the guy we need. If he is best receiver at our pick, then I say take him. After Blackmon, the quality at WR falls off steeply. We need a hands man... a REALLY good hands man. IF Fleener is better than the best WR on the board, jeez, just take him. A guy who can catch the ball is what we are so desperate for. I don't care where he lines up, nor do I care if he is a TE or WR. What I do care about is a) can he get open, and b) can he catch...does he have great hands. If so, that is my man whatever type of receiver he is called...TE or WR.
is a wise, thotful, and well respected poster/member , and is nobody's fool
. He has written many insightful posts and threads, all well thot out and or documented. You may be right...or not... about the NYG being in top 10 in D if not for injuries, but i think your enthusiasm got the best of you and you inadvertently said something impolite and thotless in the heat of posting that you really didn't mean. Calling someone a fool just because he disagrees with you is inappropriate on this board...or elsewhere for that matter. Were I in your shoes, I would write the man an apology even tho i am certain you didn't mean what you wrote. We probably have all been in your shoes, and ended up recanting or apologizing for something we wish we hadn't said. This seems like maybe one of those times.
