    When in fact he was just doing exactly what you said, having a discussion where he was adding to what you said by adding the guy will not be a starter in all probabilty.

    You are the one that made the discussion into more of a debate
    Apparently your mind reading skills need work. I did not assume he was attacking my position. Maybe you ought just sit back and Think before you type it would help so you don't look like an idiot.

    Hopefully, that will prevent some of the flightier homers on this board from launching into flights of fantasy over how this solves anything. That's all.
    I thought we were just having a discussion? I'm not upset and I wasn't trying to be rude.

    Those stats from Football Outsiders makes all the whining about Shanahan not drafting a safety, a linebacker or returner look foolish. It's much easier to draft good players in those categories (and thus get them through free agency from other teams' past drafts) than it is to get quality at DT, OT and DE.
    I've been preaching this for years and now somebody notices! :wave:

    If Atl parts ways with Grady Jackson, I would love to have him come. Big, good, solid 2 down player. Then we can ease in Thomas in the Nickle with McKinley. After that, as has been stated, look for more depth next year.

    Our only "proven" starter this year as of now is Warren, and he played so poorly he took a pay cut this year. Plus, coming out of Cleveland he mentioned numerous times that playing a 2-gap scheme is not his strength. Even if he plays solid (a big if), one injury and we have nothing proven behind him.

    Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson! Grady Jackson!

    I'm Navin R. Johnson and I approve this message.

    Not necessarily, because if Thomas works out and you have Jenkins or Rogers, Warren becomes valuable trade bait next year. The 6th and 7th round picks really don't mean anything because Ted Sundquist has already said that they didn't believe anyone picked in those slots would have made the team anyway. The only thing that would put pressure on the coaching staff to start Thomas is the fact that they gave up next year's 3rd in the deal to get Minnesota's 4th round pick. Considering teams are willing to let QBs picked in the 1st round sit for a year, I think the Broncos could let Thomas come in as a back up for a year, if we had Jenkins or Rogers.

    That makes sense, I'm not sure about cost but it makes sense.

    New system new guys. We will not know what positions we will need until next year to be honest. Burton may take to Bate's system like a fish to water. Same goes for all the other guys. I do think we have a good mix of guys fighting for playing time that it is not a huge need. We will keep 4 and maybe send Gordon or Burton back to the PS in case of injury.

    You Read My Mind!

    THATS WHAT IM THINKING! I brought that up on the board the other day!
    Everyone told me we adressed that on the 2nd day of the draft! BUT! Im not sold on that! The middle of the D-LINE has been A little weak for the past few years!
    I think! anyway!

    We don't need another DT. Warren and McKinley are the likely starters, unless Thomas turns out to be as good as advertised, in that case he will be the starter over McKinley. If I'm not mistaken, Shanahan mentioned Thomas as a potential starter this season. Shanahan has said that Burton and Gordon have a better chance of contributing this year because of the new system. There are currently 7 DTs on the team(Warren, McKinley, Thomas, Burton, Gordon, Harris, and Veal). Seven DTs is enough to go into training camp. Unless we are going to make a move for someone like Jenkins or Rogers, there's no reason to bring in another DT.
