    I dont care what anybody else says, I do not believe we are re-signing Moss. I had a real bad taste in my mouth about him after his post-Super Bowl comments. Add that to the fact that we still have not re-signed him and that we did not franchise him, I think the FO is lowballing him.

    So that said, I hope we try to stack the D this year because there is no other impact offensive FA out thre. I say we take a shot and use the some of the money to get Briggs and solidify that LB core.

    Wow and guess we are going to have to merge threads. I just put a Briggs thread up two minutes after you. I was typing it as you posted yours. Great minds think alike I guess.

    Re: Briggs


    Thats because they have Urlacher. Briggs is a really good linebacker and he is big enough to play in our system imo, hes not the size of a Vilma. Hes about the same size as Bruschi, not to mention 10 times better.

    Re: Briggs

    More like bad minds speak alike.

    Briggs:

    Will command way too much salary
    Played weakside in a 4-3
    Way undersized for the Pats system, or any 3-4

    Re: We should make a run at Briggs

    If we could somehow get a big impact D player and re-sign all the wideouts, I wouldn't be too upset if we lose Moss. Although if this happens, I don't think we will be competing for the super bowl. sure we may go 12-4 or 11-5 but it is going to be VERY VERY hard to compete with the Colts with an average O and an average D.

    Re: Briggs

    Actually the Giants MIGHT PURSUE Haggans. Here is an excerpt from the article Rotoworld is citing:


    http://blog.nj.com/ledgergiants/2008/02/reports_wilson_almost_gone.html

    Rotoworld also says the Pats are interested.

    As for Briggs. Pass. He doesn't like the 3-4. He doesn't think he will fit the 3-4. He is more suited for the Tampa 2. Too much money for a guy who doesn't like or fit our system.

    Re: Briggs

    Well, I did say "might." But I guess it's mostly a rumor, so I didn't emphasize enough. He's obviously still on the market for the Pats.

    Re: Briggs

    So its ok to try and sign 5-11 228 pound Zach Thomas but its rediculous to sign 6-1 240 pound Lance Briggs?

    Its all about the money Zach would have come cheep and Briggs will cost alot like Samuel. Hopefully nobody throws anything close to what Briggs is asking so we might get involved.

    Re: Briggs

    Even if we had signed Thomas he would not have cost even 1/10 as much as Briggs....

    Re: Briggs

    if Thomas could play inside in the 3-4 then Briggs certainly could.
