I can't wait to see how Roth & Babs do in the show; as well as the other Hawks. The f&*^$^% Faiders need to QUIT drafting Hawks!

I'm really pissed that McMahon went to the Faiders - they got a STEAL for a guy that completely neutralized both Marcus Spears AND Erasmus James last season. He'll play RT and they'll have Gallery at LT. :banghead:

Derrick Robinson is another guy that I'm pissed about. You just watch, he'll beat out Luis Castillo in camp.

Totally agree. Greasy Al may be insane but he knows a little about football, enough to steal a Ferentz-coached O-lineman. Two of our boys wearing the pewter& pitch? I can't freaking take it.
Good call on D-Rob, he has the skills and the work ethic to make that squad.
