    Greg Threat

    I think we should pick this guy up. He's a SS from the U that was signed by the Falcons after the draft and released last month. I say bring him in to compete for a backup safety slot.

    The only reason you want to bring him in is because he is from the the "U", if he was any good he wouldn't have already been cut, even before training camp

    we should at least give him a shot. he could fit our system better than atlantas. and if we dont like him then we can cut him.

    Uh, I haven't been on the boards for a while so I feel out of place.

    Question The "U"

    Does that stand for Uneducated and Unacceptable?

    There are players from the U on the Broncs (DJ Williams, Nate Webster, Kenard Lang, and Chris Myers most notably). So to bash Miami players is bashing the Broncos.

    I would have to agree with my friend here. Plus if we are bringing in LBs left and right then why can't we do it with safeties. If it doesn't wrok out then we can just cut him. Could anyone post me the guys measureables coming out of college.

    Thumbs down Not True....

    This statement "There are players from the U on the Broncs (DJ Williams, Nate Webster, Kenard Lang, and Chris Myers most notably). So to bash Miami players is bashing the Broncos." is not true. I was referring to the poor decisions and test scores that the Miami players traditionally have. Review the last decade and see all the players that have social troubles, Wonderlic scores in the single digits,etc. I would hardly emphasize the University part of the name. When Miami starts producing intelligence at the rate of Stanford, Duke, Michigan, Colorado, and several other UNIVERSITIES, they may earn the letter. The egotistical attitude doesn't reflect the educational values of a UNIVERSITY.

    i agree and dissagree...

    sure..

    the "U" are not noted for high academic achievements...

    but then again it doesnt advertise itself as one...

    it is one of the premier footballing universities in america...

    and has been for many, many years...

    does it do its job??

    hell yes...

    you can attend the "U" and still recieve a great education....

    get a degree and get a good job...

    so why does it not deserve the "letter"??



    why does every university have to be like stanford???

    its not like they are producing many great players...

    but they are noted for being great for academics...

    and they do "recruit" highly intelegent people over there...

    where football is more of a leisure activity rather than life...

    what america and society needs is a strong mix of both...

    and i think right now... there is...

    the most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do....
