Agree...on the other hand, Faneca's getting old and we're going to have to replace him in a few years anyway.

Still, there needs to be a Larry Bird rule of some kind so we don't have to let one guy go to save cap room for another. Maybe a 10% discount on the cap number for re-signing your own players.

Sorry, i have to disagree. Do you really think that would make a difference? The Rooney's have a certain amount of money they are gong to spend on player salaries and that is it. No they are not cheap-but with Ben's contract looming there is no way they are going to pony up to Faneca's demands, regardless of the cap. Besides, the only thing that rule would do is help the big Market teams like Dallas outspend the midsize and smaller market teams by a larger margin.

brady dont like to be be hit either. if you notice in the indy game they hit him a few times and he made mistakes. if you can knock brady down you can beat the pats. but you have to get thru that oline he has first.

brady also isnt able to shake off tacklers like ben can.

...he reminds me of Elway in the 4th Qtr of SB against Pacs. Would be ugly & a disaster to see Ben hurt, if he scrambles & then gotta take hits too much ...

I agree we would be a strong force in the NFL if we can keep all of our weponds and add strong o-linemen to the team. Imagine Ben with good blocking!
