    I have to agree with EDM.How can we score and move the ball consistantly if Bulger is on his Back or on IR.

    Re: If you could choose...

    Ok...seeing how some of you think I am crazy with my picks, I thought I would explain a little more.

    Bentley over Hutch:
    1) Versatility, guard/center.
    2) Price. Hutch will be the most sought after free agent on the market and I would be afraid negotiating could be long process with him and Seattle still has matching rights. Hence we could lose both.
    3) I think it is important for Linehan/Hasslett to have a couple guys they are familiar with on the team. This helps a lot with expectations and leadership.
    4) Bentley might be even better the Hutch. Bentley didn't have a lot of help in NO. Where Hutch was often overshadowed with Jones. You know exactly what you are getting with Bentley.

    Hillenmeyer over Peterson:
    1) Baggage/age
    2) And the biggest non-selling point with is Peterson -- POSTON IS HIS AGENT
    3) Peterson is on the downhill slide, Hillenmeyer should be up
    4) again, money
    5) The need for a middle linebacker is much greater than outside.
    6) Peterson or a Hutch signing would kill any hopes of signing any more mid to high range free agents.

    Last statement for you all.
    Wouldn't you rather have a Bentley / Hillenmeyer / Hovan / Arch / Hope type off season

    or would you like:
    Hutch / Pickett or Arch off season?

    Offense -- Bentley, no question. We have bigger needs at guard than we do at center. We'd have book ends at both tackles, plus Bentley opposite a Timmerman/Terrell pairing. That looks like a very dominant line, especially if you committ to actually trying to run the ball consistently.

    Defense -- Howard isn't a sexy pick, but I like for a variety of reasons. First, it gives us a better pass rush which will improve the way the corners look. Second, it would give us more flexibility in the draft while shoring up the defense's foundation. Third, I have no aversion to signing a linebacker, but I also feel like we have so much cap money already sunk in there that we ought to give Haslett a chance with Claiborne and Coakley before we spend more money there.
