    I spent most of the week away from the debacle that was our national game... come on. I'm not back to start a fight, but the drafting of four receivers in the past two years, with a hall of famer on our team, to warrant the signing of a major veteran? How does this not cause concern?

    When our lines need help? And linebackers? And corners? And... everywhere?

    This isn't even about the top pick, or our coach anymore. It's about everything else.

    Yeah, what you said lol, only now we apparently have him the 2nd go round. I know your post was from the 1st try to sign him though. Now SK needs to work the waiver wire for defensive players from now until the cuts are made.

    Why do you think Isabella doesn't really fit into our plans? Did I miss something? Kid is lightning fast & will be perfect for this offense on go routes plus his speed will open things up for others.

    Meh on Crabtree. Hope he does some things to prove me wrong.

    I hear you solar 7, we need help at all the positions you mentioned for sure, but this can't all be done in one yr. Being as KK is a master playcaller (we shall see in the NFL) the FO seems to want offensive skill position players first, give KK what he needs. Out score teams basically (we shall see on that also). Nothing wrong with signing MC, veteran WR familiar with this offense, it can only help on that side of the ball. They did sign a few players on defense in FA, no way they could foresee what happened with Philon & to Alford. They don't have alot of cap space left, what they do have will be better spent at this point, on aging veterans being cap/camp casualties. They can get those players cheap, add a little depth at a few positions, it's all that can be done at this point. I'd rather have an aging veteran rather than one with an injury history, with SK doing this you never know though lol? He has gotten us some veteran bargains in the past so we shall see?

    Crabtree, imo, makes our WR room, better today than it was yesterday.

    Ah, I can’t wait until Crabtree has his 6th drop of the season & we’re only 4 games in & you guys see what I see

    OK with the signing. Cards have lots of holes to fill; expect them to be busy on waiver wire when cuts start happening.

    I sure hope he fits into our plans, but right now, he's 4th on our depth chart at best. Crabtree isn't coming here to play a backup and special teams role. Sherfield and Keesean Johnson look to have outplayed him.

    I'm not saying all is lost for the kid's future or anything, but after investing 4 draft picks in receivers I've the past two years, we shouldn't be needing to sign veterans in their 30s to get the job done.

    Which would’ve been fun instead of watching washed up veterans.

    Then why bring in Crabtree?

    Then why is Keeshawn Johnson the #3 WR?

    JJ Nelson had speed, you need more than just speed to be a threat
