    Birk was done last year. Bringing him back was a stupid move. Now they will have to dead with dead money against the cap. Giving Bobbie Williams that contract wasn't very good either.

    In fairness to Harbaugh, Ozzie wasn't executive of the year.

    Definitely agree.

    You know, had they not brought him back they might have been able to bring in Evan Mathis and while they would be potentially starting a rookie (Gradkowski) at center, having Evan Mathis at LG would have been REALLY nice.

    Totally agree. I was puzzled at both moves at the time they were made. At least the dead money for Williams is relatively insignificant. Too bad the same cannot be said for Birk.

    Here's hoping Gradkowski has been (and will continue being)in the gym like a mad man. He needs to up us bench press for that initial punch and his squat and leg curl for that drive off with his legs.

    I think bringing Birk back was more for stability than anything else. Think about it. If he wasn't there, you have Oher (at a different position), and Yanda, and then 3 new starters with at least one being a rookie going in to a season where everyone was figuring on being in serious contention for a SB run. Hindsight...

    Agreed 100%

    Of all of those guys, the only ones that really should be back are Jones and Leach.

    So, if we can keep Leach and Jacoby, lose Mckinnie, maybe Ed Reed too, then we would get rid of much of the deadweight that's dragging this team down?

    I don't see a problem here. (other than the dead money)
