Way to many people get excited about UDFA's around here. I know BB is pretty good about finding role players as UDFA's but really he goes through tons every year just to find 1 or 2 that are good enough to stick with the team for a year, more if we're lucky. Thomplkins looks like he might be one that could stick and Sudfeld looks great if he can stay healthy (the only reason he wasn't a day 2 draft pick) but more often than not these waiver and UDFA's are that way because of a lack of talent. The fact that this team has so many UDFA's year in and year out is not a good thing. It shows how bad previous years drafts and FA's were that instead of having positions already filled a fairly large number of UDFA's need to fill those positions. The vast majority of which won't stick on the team longer than a year and the whole song and dance repeats the following year with fans falling over themselves about UDFA's that will be off the team before the next year.
I swear by lil 10 pound bearded baby Jesus
Couldn't agree more, the truth is most of them are marginal players getting great coaching and being put in the best position to succeed...imagine what Bill could do with better talent?
I do like what I've seen out of Sudfeld and Thompkins, but until they do it in a regular game I'm not going to get too excited. When this team signed Francis one guy went on to say he was one of the best 34 tackles available in the draft (very underrated). Really?? One of the best 34 tackles goes undrafted and then can't make the Dolphin's roster? I mean koolaide tastes good, but some people like to bathe in it.
Imagine if we had real NFL players on our team? We would go undefeated every NFL season. I say, bring in Charlie Casserly, or Matt Millen.
Make sure you don't get too excited about Thompkins or Suddfield, but make sure not to condemn them either, that could be a bad PR move. I love the way your playing this one.
You're right truechamp!! I decided I'm going to get wicked excited! Heck I'm even going to get excited about Fenene sitting home on his couch right now as we sign undrafted guys to fill the spot he couldn't play a year ago. Let me just finish my coffee and I'll see if I can crap out a giant pink Patriot helmet...or a GM of the year trophy (they have those right?).
I really should be excited that we had the best QB in football fall into our laps and he makes us win despite the fact we keep signing guys like Adrain Wilson, but I'll be excited about that tomorrow after he rips through the Bills throwing to guys that otherwise would be working at Taco Bell.
