“I can’t wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and we’re standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and we’re all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him he’s world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.”

But yeah I didn't even realize i kept Reisner. You brought up a lot of money issues so i will revise this. Thanks. I agree with a lot of what you said.
The players under the Release category, yes I do know they are FA's, just making the point i do not want them brought back.
I am only for drafting a WR rd. 1. Between Austin, Patterson, Allen and Hunter for me at 23. I know many people don't consider Hunter 1st rd talent but I think that will change dramatically once he runs the 40.
There has been a lot of talk about Dobson and Patten. I have to admit I didn't see any of these players play but...I like guys like Marcus Davis 6-4, 232 and is faster than Dobson and Patten. Or a guy like Wheaton or Woods because of how fast they are in and out of breaks, so for their route running. I don't like Dobson because he seems like a body catcher.
I agree, there are many good options for us this year and I believe this is a product of our team being successful. I like the guys you mentioned and after watching some tape and seeing him at the senior bowl, Quinton from Louisiana looks amazing. In the end, I just want a player who will play hard and have a big impact on our passing game. It would be nice to find the next larry fitz but in the end, I will be happy with someone we can rely on.
So excited for this draft already!
Catch 22: run or pass, you're screwed either way!
Can someone tell me what you think about Matt Elam? I think he could be a real good football player for us.
What is Justin Hunter projected at right now? 2nd round?

Well currently Patterson is the most popular pick projected to go to us at 23... but I agree he'll likely go like 15th to Miami or higher then we select.
I want patterson too!
E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida StateI'm liking him more and more after reading about his Senior Bowl practices. Not sure though if we have this rhythm passing attack, more like we run-run-run and then ask our QB to get us out of bad spots by throwing only once a first down. I think maybe this needs to change for us to have some passing success. Anyways Manuel would be a good selection in the 4th.
Manuel struggled on the first day of practice, but he looked like the best QB in Mobile, Ala., from a physical standpoint.
Manuel has long legs and a longer stride. He also has a quick, high release and accuracy in shorter timing routes. While Manuel is widely thought of as a "dual-threat" quarterback given his unbelievable physique and natural athleticism, he really isn't.
Manuel is a pass-first signal-caller who'll thrive when developed in a timing-based, rhythm passing attack. That system will best take advantage of his ability to roll out and cut the field in half, which will reduce the number of reads he has to make early in his career.
If the passing options aren't there, he can just run—which he can do well.
Manuel showed with his solid progression through the week that he is extremely coachable and will benefit greatly from NFL coaching. Heading into the Senior Bowl game, there is no real agreement among analysts about the exact quarterback hierarchy. But there is general agreement that Manuel clearly was the QB who improved the most during practices.
That's a trend many believe will continue for years.
