I can't be the only one thinking WTF is going on. Before all this we were amongst the top suitors for Deangelo Williams and Ahmad Bradshaw. Now it seems, according to Omar that Deangelo is too expensive for us, and we aren't even being mentioned to Bradshaw. And to make matters worse, Adam Shefter says we are interested in Marion Barber. You have to be kidding me...Marion freaking Barber...he was good maybe 3-4 years ago, but then ago so was LT. Can someone explain what the hell is going on?
Every report we heard during the lockout was Miami was definitely going to add a RB and a QB and our first calls would be to Williams and Bradshaw. The only positive side is that we are still linked to Kyle Orton, but even that seems far from a sure thing. We need to be reminded that we finished 7-9 last year and a couple of rookies is not going to turn this team around along with player development. We need to bring in a QB and a starting RB that has gas left in the tank. Not Marion Freaking Barber...hell I would 100% rather Ronnie or Ricky then Marion "i pull my hamstring when I walk down the stairs" Barber.
Maybe its too early for me to panic, and it probably is, but I can't help to remember that everyone said that there is no time to sit and wait during this year's free agency period bc of the timing and schedule. Teams are already locking up their starters and we are apparently sitting on the sidelines. And you know if Miami spoke to Bradshaw and offered him something, Drew Rosenhaus would leak that info in a heartbeat to bring up the price on the Giants, but he hasn't.
We are about 15 million under the cap, and i swear if we end up with Marion Barber and Vince Young instead of Orton and Bradshaw, i might just jump of the George Washington Bridge....so i'm looking for any info that anyone has that might be able to turn our fortune around...
P.S. the Pat Devlin signing was pretty cool
