Yep. Now all we need is a QB, a beast of a nose tackle, Sean Lee to stop getting hurt, and a #1 WR. Oh, don't forget a new HC and OC and most importantly, a GM who isn't named Jones.
they can get that all done by 5PM Frisco Standard Time...

So, they added 2 defensive players today. Good to know they are addressing the most serious problems, as the offense is humming along nicely.
They were brought in to compete for that #1 receiver spot that our QB does not need...

So, were 5 games in, passed on the Et trade cuz, well we really didn't need another safety, but now decided that we do and the best of the best is gone with a season ending injury IE ET, whats next....ya'll reckon Jones will come to grips about us needing a real HC and OC? Can we get both off someones PS? heheh

No, they passed on the ET trade because the asking price was too steep.

It's hard to tell in print sometimes, and there are posters that seriously make claims like this, and even some that are completely absurd. Tone of voice doesn't always translate well in print.

meh...we are in eternal bargain bin HELL. We are swimming in salary cap space...yet Stevie won't loosen the purse strings for just 1 ****** stud player. I get trying to be frugal..hey that's a good business model,UNLESS the team sucks offensively, THEN you have a back up plan ready...which apparently he don't. POOR PLANNING. Did he actually think Jeff Heath was the answer? lol...Now Woods I like..dude is a player. He will be good. Heath is a rotational guy...a dime player. This is the result of ignoring a glaring need for over 15 years,thinking you can get by.

Bargain bin is all that is available 5 games into the season - there are no stud players sitting at home right now. For this time of year Thompson actually seems like a decent addition. He started 16 games for the Giants last year, he was a 2017 3rd round draft pick, and he had 19 INTs in college. Not saying he going to be a big upgrade to the position, but he seems to have a chance to be a quality addition for depth and special teams, and if he ends up doing more that will be gravy.
