Just read that the Bucs cleaned house and ditched something like 4-5 vets including Derek Brooks and Warrick Dunn. Stunning! It seems to me like they are going to make a run at Haynesworth but i have to seriously question that move.  First, they got rid of Gruden and now this. Say hello to 4-12.

imo they were due to rebuild. They weren't a bad team, but realistically they had no shot at winning the super bowl with the team they fielded last season. The only logical thing to do when your team is in limbo like that is either sign some big money free agents to put them over the top or rebuild. They chose to rebuild. Can't really fault them for it.

I dont know about that. Especially if they did it to go after one player - Haynesworth. Derek Brooks was a franchise player who can still play at a pro bowl level. That would be like the Ravens cutting Ray Lewis. They both may have lost a step but they can still bring it.

I cant believe all the big names who are out there this year. Lavenous Coles also got turned loose by the stinkin' Jets. It's going to be interesting to see where these players end up. A team the sucked last year can make a big turn around if they sign a few of the big names that are available.

It's much harder for a team which was already good to get rid of 4-5 starters and "rebuild". Chances are they will be taking a few steps down rather than a step up. How many years have your Chiefs been rebuilding now?

2 years and I expect one more year of misery and then a steady climb back into contention after that. 3 years of being shit and drafting high, coupled with the amount of money you can spend on free agents at the end of that 3 years thanks to having a young team that doesn't get paid much is a fairly reasonable way to rebuild.

If the Bucs did cut 4 players to try and get 1 player to put them over the top then they aren't rebuilding. They just seem to unrealistically think that they're a player like Haynesworth away from competing for a Super Bowl. That's delusional imo.

Yeah, we'll find out soon enough if they are going to make a run at Haynesworth. To me, the only thing to make sense of their move today was to clear cap room to battle with the Redskins in an effort to sign him. And that's not to say that makes much more sense too, it's just that at least they had a reason for doing what they did.

Otherwise they could have drafted some players first or at least signed some younger free agents before cleaning house of respected vets like that. I saw a clip of their coach having a press conference today on espn trying to explain the move and he sure didnt come across to me as someone with a plan. I just cant believe they would shitcan Gruden for someone like that. Looks like London is going to get another dog of a team for the game this year.

On top of all the players already released we might soon see Ray Lewis and LT available. Not to mention Larry Johnson and Q Boldin.

You never know how it could go- another thing I love about NFL Football. I tell you what IU thought Coughlin was a tard signing Eli thining he would be the next great thing being Peyton's brother, but once he got his confidence we saw him shine. (Then saw him REALLY pissed a LOT last season! was kinda cute even if it pissed me off) Point is - you may not be seeing what the coach is seeing and what his reasons are. If they are your team, all you can do is hope he knows wtf he's doing. Of course I'm the biggest fan of an underdog team so you may not want to listen to my theories!

Dang, the Skins don't waste any time in locking up Haynesworth (for $100 million) and the Bucs move to acquire Kellen Winslow. Great moves by both. Looks like Ray Lewis is running out of options aside from the Cowboys.

Bucs resigned Antonio Bryant too. With him and Winslow, how good would the Bucs be with Matt Cassel throwing the ball? It could happen because I heard they're done with Garcia.

It's funny you mention Cassel because I just read that Scott Pioli and your Chiefs are striking a trade with the Pats for Mike Vrabel.

The first thing that entered my mind was how much sense would it make for Pioli to go after Matt Cassel considering how much the Chiefs need a QB? I'm not sold on Matt Sanchez with the third or fourth pick that they have. Too much of a risk when you can get a proven player at the same position for about the same price.

It's also funny how new coaches and GM's always look to surround themselves with people they worked with in the past, even to the point of overspending and placing too much value in them. I look for the Jets to try and raid the Ravens of a few players and the Chiefs to do the same with the Pats.

Just read that the Bucs cleaned house and ditched something like 4-5 vets including Derek Brooks and Warrick Dunn. Stunning!


Derek Brooks had 73 tackles in 2008 whereas Ray Lewis had 117.
Lewis, who is two years younger than Brooks, is still playin' at the franchise level and Brooks who is showing his age will get a 2 year mid-money deal with someone to end his career and the Buc's really don't own it to him to hang onto an aging player.

Warrick Dunn, with 786 yards and 2 TD's in 2008, at age 34, is not a featured back and the Buc's recognized that after it took Dunn the first 6 games to have a 100 yard game.

The moves to release these players to make room for new talent may have been the best for the Buc's.

Tell that to Oprah. if someone told her she was only going to make 100 million over the next 7 years she'd probably throw herself out of a window and slash her own throat on the way down.

Yeah, I think Ray Lewis is still one of the top LBs in the game and even though he and Brooks may have lost a step, good luck finding someone better than either to replace them. The problem I have with Tampa is that they have no one at this stage.

They got rid of their franchise player with no warning along with 4 other potential starters who are also team leaders. They had more cap room than any other team before the moves so it wasnt about money.

As a result, they broke up their team chemistry and purged themselves of several playmakers and team leaders. What are the chances they find enough "young players" to plug all those holes and improve on the team they had last year which was playoff bound until their DC decided to retire?

They would have been better served by signing some new people and getting them into training camp first before going with the youth movement. That way if it didnt work out, at least they still had quality starters. Now, they have nothing.

On top of that, Haynesworth said in his press conference yesterday that he was considering Tampa and Washington but after weighing what Tampa just did to the vets and his age, he decided to sign with the Skins.

Hey, how bout what Scott Pioli and the Chiefs did in landing Cassel today, huh? What a surprise!

100m and only working for 7 years. If I ever wished I was a man before this is why!

He'll never see the 100 million because in year 5, he's owed something like 30 million which no team would pay in this day in age so he would get cut. Still, he should make about 50 million in 4 years. Not bad for someone from Tennessee.

How bout them Chiefs? Looks like they just sped up their rebuilding process significantly with the acquisition of Matt Cassel. Now they can grab a linebacker or O-linemen with their #3 overall pick. This was a great move imo, and great news for the league as it obviously means that Tom Brady will be ready for the start of the season.

I was expecting another 3 win season from the Chiefs, now I'm thinking 6-7 is more likely, especially if they keep Gonzalez and L. Johnson which by the sounds of it they will be doing unless someone blows them away with a trade offer.

Who's Cassel gonna throw to..they have one credible WR in Bowe, but thats about it. Who's gonna run the ball...and most importantly, who's gonna block for the QB and RB? You're right about an O-lineman...but they need a helluvalot more than Cassel to turn that train wreck around.

Edit: I think 6-7 wins is an overestimate..I'd be surprised to see them win 4-5.

Edit #2: Johnson was done 2 years ago.

Of course they do, but they're still instantly better now that they have Cassel then they were last season. I never claimed that they were done rebuilding, just that the process has been sped up and that they'll get 6-7 wins in the second weakest division in football.

Bowe and Gonzalez are better options to throw to than a lot of teams have. If they can grab a WR in free agency their offense will be fine, and LJ can still run the ball, the Chiefs just had no O-line for the last 2 years because they lost 2 of the best O-linemen in the league at the same time. How do you lose Will Shields and Willie Rolf in the same off-season and not have it affect your running game?

I think you're giving Cassel way too much credit. He was inserted in to (arguably) the best system in the NFL..with plenty of great coaching, and great players. No way in hell he has a repeat performance, IMO.

Who said anything about a repeat performance? All I said is that Cassel is an upgrade for the Chiefs, and I don't think you'll find anyone who would dispute that.
