Ok I have been quite over the past couple days. The Dawkins thing took a lot out of me (plus im in the middle of a campaign).
The First Thing is That we did not loose our two starting tackles. Remind me again who did Runyon sign with. oh yeah thats right NO ONE. No one is going to sign someone who is going through the sergury that he is except the team hi was on. the is no market out there for a 35 year old tackle who is undergoing major surgery
Whats going to happen is we are going to draft a tackle in the first round and resign Runyon to a small contract.
Second thing is to all those people who say we are not going to trade for Boldin. Well you may be right but consider this. he does not want to be there right now unless he get his deserved contract (which they cant afford) and if they dont give it to him he will leave as soon as he becomes a FA. No team could be spending 35 to 40 Million on 3 players on the same side of the ball.(warner fitz and boldin) and yes next year is an uncapped year but that doesnt mean Jack. yes it have an impact on large market teams like the entire NFC East but a lower tear team who neveer could fill a stadium like the cards, this could actualy hurt them because other teams could just over bid the cards without hesitation. so why dont they just trade Boldin to the highest bidder so they can get good young talent.
like i said it could happen that they keep him but when you put into account that he WILL be gone and in an era where there could be no salary cap they need to learn to get and groom young talent. and # picks will help
