2007 thread

With the draft coming up & some rule changes, I thought it's time to start anew.

I'm a big fan of getting rid of the force out, making it reviewable would've been a huge mistake.

The helmet radio for defense is also a welcome addition.

I think the force out is good, and I think it should be reviewable.

I also like the defensive headphones.

It was already reported that Alex Smith, unless he breaks his arm, will be the starter this year.

:sad face:

Cleveland had a great, surprising year last year. Anything less than an AFC North title will be a disappointment.

I like being pleasantly surprised rather than having the potential to be let down. :P But, I think they've made some good moves in the off season. They should have no problem winning the division.

So true ;)

Technically I'm not *in* Cleveland, but am a Cleveland fan. I would love to see all 4 teams be competitive this year in our division, but I have a feeling it's just going to be Cleveland and Pittsburgh again.

The 49ers hope Smith is in shape to participate in their post-draft minicamp in early May, when he'll have to begin the process of winning a starting job for the first time since his rookie season. Shaun Hill, the career third-stringer who won two starts as a late-season replacement for Trent Dilfer, will get a chance to compete with Smith, according to Martz and Nolan.

I'm gearing up for a subpar year because the schedule this year will be brutal.
I think 6 games in their schedule are teams that didn't make the playoffs

John Clayton reported on one of those "Inside the Huddle" that Smith has the job, mostly because:

"As far as being a leader goes, he was out there on the field when his arm was practically falling off, his forearm had tendinitis and he was playing through pain that most QBs' don't go through, he was just in the wrong scheme and it didn't support him"

I rather Hill in there because they need a change and Smith has proven he is not a starter in the league. I don't think Hill is the answer either though. Hopefully they will make a move in the draft and maybe get a QB. I doubt they will though since they already have 3 QB's. Why did they ever get rid of Garcia??

Anyone know what happened with Takeo Spikes? He visited the Niners and they said they wanted to sign him, but I haven't heard anything since.

Yeah, it's going to be rough. At least all 4 of us suffer together, though. ;)

Spikes is just waiting, biting his time until a better offer.

We let Garcia go because he was playing like utter crap. Hell, Rattay played better in that 03-04 season. People forget he blew ass in Cleveland and Detroit.

Shaun Hill isn't the answer, he has an average arm, but is he better than Smith in my book? Yes.

I would let them draft a QB but only in rounds 4+

Yeah I remember he was bad in Cleveland and Detroit but they let him go because of money not because he was playing poorly. I would much rather of had him the past few years but oh well. It just sucks that as fans we have to go through another year with no QB. I can't take it anymore!

Don't worry my 49er Faithful brother, we will rise again! I called last year, that Shaun Hill will save us! And yet again another prediction!

The 49ers are struggling at 2-5 and the millions,billions,trillions of 49ers fans have had enough. They rise up and take Nolan hostage, and he is replaced by the Bay Area legend Ronnie Lott.

Ahhh, been too long since I've seen an NFL thread. Hopefully the Bears will pick up Rashard Mendenhall in the draft this year. I can't wait until the Cedric Benson era is done.

At least now the Bears will start laying some even harder smack on the Packers without Brett Favre.

I'm not sure how many of you were still interested after the whole MILF thing, but knowing CAG, I'm sure it's a lot of you.

Pack still has the best QB in the division. We'll see if he can stay on the field.

I just saw it now on ESPN.com. That interview was so awkward. It was hilarious. At the end when he was saying, "That's it, That's It?" I was laughing. Nothing came out of that interview.

The Bengals cut Chris Henry today. Why do some of these players continue to waste there talent and do stupid things off the field? It baffles me.

:shock: The Bengals cut...Chris Henry? I figured he could commit murder and still stay in Cinci.

And I thought the interview wasn't out of the ordinary for Chad.

On a similar note, I wish Nate Washington had been the one getting in trouble in Pittsburgh instead of Wilson.

The whole interview to me was just awkward. He was then interviewed on the radio this morning, and he did not know of Henry being cut. They informed him and he was shocked. Chad said they need him. I think he is a good talent but I don't know about needing him.

Report: Favre re-thinking retirement

LOS ANGELES (TICKER) —Brett Favre could be having second thoughts about retirement.

According to a Los Angeles Times report, the former Green Bay Packers quarterback, who announced his retirement last month, is contemplating a comeback with another team.

Citing NFL sources, the Times reported Thursday that Favre has been quietly talking with teams about their interest in trading for the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player.

On March 4, Favre, who played with the Packers for 16 seasons, announced his retirement during an emotional press conference at Lambeau Field.

However, Favre, 38, has yet to give written notice of his retirement to the league or players’ union.

Favre’s agent, James “Bus” Cook, told the Times he was not aware of his client’s possible interest in resuming his career.

“That’s news to me,” Cook said. “I don’t think it has anything to do with anything. He’s retired, period, point blank.”

During his press conference, Favre denied he retired because the Packers did not make a more aggressive attempt to sign wide receiver Randy Moss.

However, Favre’s decision came one day after the New England Patriots re-signed Moss to a three-year contract worth $27 million.


:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

New sig coming soon.

Wow... a great April Fool's day joke would have been Favre becoming active again and signing a contract with Chicago (or Detroit or Minnesota).
