    Well, if we sign Franklin, we could move Lissemore to Reyes's spot on 1st and 2nd down, and bring in Reyes on 3rd down. He still has some value against the pass, but he's ineffective stopping the run.

    Just a thought. ;)

    I think they will wait until the cuts start coming in and make another Guy type signing, instead of going after an unsigned player.

    They may...... won't give the guy much time to get up to speed though.

    True and we are short players right now, but you'd think they'd be getting something done no later than tomorrow if they want to sign an older street FA.

    At this point if wonder if there is real good reason guys like Franklin and Sopoaga haven't been signed. I'm not confident either will be much better than what we have in Geathers or Carrethers.

    I think Tito brough up a good point though, maybe it's Don Johnson that should be under fire. 3 years in and Reyes looks worse than he did as a rookie. He had all the necessary athletic ability, he has a good head on his shoulders, it's amazing that his technique is so terrible. (I'm talking how he turns sideways, losing all strength and leverage getting pushed literally into the secondary)

    Good question...... how does a guy who looked promising regress, when he hasn't suffered a significant injury? Unless he's a lazy *** like Fat Albert, then coaching has to be a concern.

    Is it too early for me bag on Pagano...I'd say Reyes technique or lack there of has to do with coaching
