    Actually, most football fans find a potent pass rush to be a pretty exciting thing to behold... especially when it was missing last year.

    I think you mean Saine, Starks and Green. Also we signed UDFAs Nic Cooper, RB/FS Winston-Salem and RB Marc Tyler from USC

    Exactly.
    And we can thank DeSean a little for that one as his last-second PR for a TD in week 17 of that season knocked the Giants from the playoffs. So we didn't have to play at the Giants, instead got Vick and the Iggles.

    It all worked out well to take Jordy over D-Jack.

    I am really excited with this draft. Picking as high as we were I think Ted did an excellent job waiting and moving to target our needs with thing his draft budget. Takes 3 years to know if you had a great draft but I expect our first 3 to have immeadite impact. If nothing elese the competition may turn Neal into the beast we have been waiting for. Perry on the outside taking some of the heat from clay and a couple of guys for the line to give us depth.

    We wont't know for awhile but I'd say ted has at least hit a triple if not a HR with this draft in addressing the D. Gonna be lots of competition in camp.

    Jackson I think is more talented but Nelson is a better player. But the attitude and price is what makes Nelson better. But Jackson's speed on the pack with his return ability? It would have been something else.

    Ted clearly made the right choice though with Nelson.

    Yeah, having an exciting draft day is most important thing on Ted's mind. Maybe he should hire a clown to perform while the Packers are on the clock. Or hand out candy.

    Good point! With DeSean on the Packers squad they might have won a Championship! Wait...:tdown:

    I wouldn't trade Jordy for the Eagles entire WR corps, let alone Jackson.

    DeSean Jackson may be one of the most over-rated receivers in the league. He's constantly dinged-up and complaining about his contract. Nelson is the better possession receiver and route runner.

    I really like what TT did in this draft. He combined value with needs. Perry and Worthy both held first round grades. Perry is an immediate impact over Zombo, Walden and Jones. Worthy has the potential to be a very, very good player.

    TT knew that he couldn't/didn't need to add 12 players through the draft. The compensatory picks allowed him to move up and be aggressive. He really worked his magic here.

    I like the way you think.... but instead of total defense, it's passing defense. We were dead last at #32 last year allowing the most yards passing ever by any team in one season, in the history of the National Football League!

    And our sack % was #32 last year among the 32 teams!

    When we finally get us a decent running game it'll be lights out for our opponents.

    I think our OL with another year of playing together, better LOT play - either Newhouse with an offseason/year of experience, or the more talented Sherrod taking over, and out Rbs being healthy and a full offseason, our running games should be better. Additionally, having Cliffy gone - God Bless him - who offered very little in the way of run blocking, will also significantly improve the run game.

    Our defense now is young is kind of has a lot going for it on paper, a lot more at least for the front end.

    I think both Newhouse with an offseason and Sherrod finishing rehab and having a chance to develop will make LOT better for us. Last year it was a shambles.

    I worry about our running game primarily due to Starks' injury problems. Can he stay healthy? I'm hoping to see the further development of Saine and Green.

    I am more than happy with our draft picks. We addressed what we needed to address and I feel confident that our D-line is going to be much improved!!!
