Some cool stuff here.    

Brad wells is a child with rocks for brains. How does re-signing Geathers effect hooker? They play different positions. I swear I have no clue how he has a job. Half the people on this forum are more

I read an article or two. Didn't seem all that good but maybe we see a better fit for what we do or something.

I'm seeing mixed reviews.  Was really good his rookie year off the bench, then in 2017, he tore an ankle ligament, played 4 games on that tear, making it worse and having to have surgery.  Seems last year to have struggled early on trying to come back from the injury, but got better as the season went on.

Wasnt the packers D and secondary in general terrible???

Yeah, but cannot assume that because the unit was bad every player on that unit was bad. According to PFF and Packers fans that I've seen discuss him he WAS bad... but then again it doesn't automatically mean he would be bad in our system.

I'm gonna hope hes for depth and we draft a S the thought of relying on this guy makes me sick to my stomach

I wonder if we have any interest at all in Shane Ray?  Wondering if he could play the SAM and be like an additional situational pass rusher type piece?  Just kind of kicking some ideas around in my head here.  Not totally sure.  I'm trying to see if we could use him in some kind of capacity.

Polian absolutely loved him, and I know Ballard and Polian talk occasionally.  Maybe he's someone you give a second chance to.  Polian thought he was the next Mathis.  Let Mathis coach him and see what happens.

And he's been on the 2nd team for most of his career so I feel like at the very least we can get him for depth at SAM.  If he maybe could play the SAM that's like having an additional guy you could use as a pass rusher situationally.   We could pick up whatever guys we like to fill the depth pass rusher spots and Ray could be an additional piece we could use.  Hybrid type or something. Just scheming up stuff in my head here .

It's annoying but I kind of like it at the same time.  And whatever Ballard did to get Irsay's tweeting under control is nothing short of a miracle.

    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will. 
    • This is why drafting a QB/Eason panning out would be ideal for when this happens again. I have stated I'm all for Stafford, but it further restricts you.    We will have about $85 million  committed to Buckner($21 mill), Leonard($19 mill), Nelson($19 mill), Kelley($11 mill), & B. Smith($15 mill) alone after next season.    The issue with having so much talent is eventually you have to get rid of some. I wouldn't be surprised if we trade a star in a few years because we can't afford to pay them(like the 49ers) for a high draft pick.   
    • I meant it's not gonna work as easily in college. Hand fighting and levrage matter more which Basham has. That was my point.
