I agree with Rooney we need an impactful player in round 1 and round 2.
All this being said though, we need to attempt to keep Lewis if possible and not purge too many vets, (I'm for keeping Keisel) If we are not careful I see another decade like the 80's coming on.
I think Lewis, Starks in that order should be priority. I know it would be extremely hard to keep both and Starks does deserve a solid pay day. Question - would Wallace's money still be available after all the cuts, or would we potentially be using that dough to spread around to the depth of the other positions?

I don't believe in getting rid of all 3 O-lineman - Starks, Foster, Legursky - someone in our O-line is gonna go down (inevitable) and not having any of those guys is reaaaaallly askin for it.

On the other side - we need to keep either Harrison or Keisel - I'm not seeing a way to keep both. Thoughts?

Did anyone hear about Ryan Clark taking down his twitter - I've heard its a potential sign or that he did it much like Legursky - too cut down on the fan speculation before they know what will actually happen?
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
