Good write up.
The only free agent we should try to retain is Keenan Lewis. I'd let about everyone else walk theyre all very replaceable players.
Other (name them)
Very impressive. I dont know how he makes a living though. He has to spend every moment of his day on that site or watching football film
I do like him a lot but I don't really take all he says as fact. What I said in my previous response about him was that he's just as flawed as ESPN, NFL Network, FOX, CBS and NBC, but whereas all those media outlets say the same exact thing, Walter says new, different, more interesting things that are probably more accurate, but he's obviously not without flaws. I wouldn't even call Adams' five starts as "struggling," and Foote had the furthest thing from "an abysmal season." So I don't sound like I'm complaining about underrated players, I also disagree with the way he describes Ramon Foster as "a quality starter" and ranks David Johnson as our third best free agent.
Maybe I'm just nit-picking since I hold him to high standards, but I was a little disappointed by this write-up. I probably shouldn't expect to agree with everyone he says, though.
The fatuation with David Johnson everyone has needs to stop. Hes a below average blocker, pass catcher, hes slow. He really doesnt do anything that well.
He needs to be let go. Will Johnson > David Johnson
David Johnson is a tub of lard that has been useless as a Steeler.
Mendenhall and Johnson killed the SB vs the Packers. That play flat out killed us. Anyways. I don't think we should re sign em.

Why can't we just go for a REAL FB?
Big THX to MJ's Bulls and pheagles10 on the sig help!
I miss you.
I agree, Will Johnson > David Johnson. But as a third TE behind Miller and Paulson, I wouldn't mind bringing D. Johnson back. Pope is not a good blocker at all and is not nearly as good a red zone target as he should be for being 6'8". Both his TDs were Roethlisberger shots to the gut off play action from the one yard line. As a blocker I'd prefer D. Johnson, and as a receiver he could make those two TD catches that Pope made.
I just remember in the preseason when he went down Pittsburgh sports writers acted like the season was already a wrap. I completely missed when he became not just an average player in the league but one of the studs on our team. I dont see it at all.
I prefer to have him walk and move forward with someone else personally.
I like will better
From a personnel standpoint I'd prefer him since even though he wasn't playing, he was still learning Haley's system whereas someone new will have to learn from scratch. But this is a 3rd tight end/backup fullback we're talking about. Rather draft a guy late or sign an undrafted free agent since their salary will be worse than David's, who will get the veteran's minimum.
So I wouldn't say I don't want him back because "he's useless," which incredibly understates him. I just don't want him back because someone else would be a few hundred thousand dollars cheaper.
I'd keep DJ over Pope, but that's not saying much
So...rooting for the Ravens or Pats in the Super Bowl... this will suck. At least if they win, it's short term misery until next Super Bowl. If the Niners win, they're tied with us for who knows how long.
I've brought him up before, but with Colbert saying he won't shy away from guys in the draft with character issues, I would like us to use a late draft pick and trade for McClain. McClain & Timmons could secure our ILB positions for years..
