CHIEFS, RAVENS INTERESTED IN TYREE
DAVID TYREE
The Chiefs and Ravens are among the teams that have expressed interest in veteran WR David Tyree, who was released by the Giants today, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Since Tyree is a vested veteran and can sign right away, there is a chance he could be with another team within the next few days, the source said.

Though both teams need help at wide receiver, Tyree is coveted more for his special-teams play. He was a special-teams Pro Bowler and is especially adept on punt coverage. However, nagging injuries and a deep receiver pool limited his availability this preseason, resulting in him being let go by the Giants.

He's a Superbowl Hero, dontchakno?

Meh. With our WR's, he's probably worth a look, but outside of that super bowl catch, the receiving aspect of his game doesn't get me excited...

Yeah he is. He starts on ST immediately and should crack the starting offensive line-up by game 5.

If the Chiefs mark him as their top waiver pick-up, don't they have priority over Baltimore? I thought waivers go to the worst teams first.

I wish David Tyree all the best -- Giants fans and the entire NFL will always remember Tyree’s spectacular catch in Super Bowl XXL11. We're happy that he will never be forgotten. He earned his Super Bowl ring -- Giants fans will also remember Tyree as an outstanding Pro Bowl player on special teams.

Unfortunetly, no one remembers that if Eli Manning did not escape the sack and Tyree did not make the catch -- It was still 3rd down.

It was Brandon Jacobs 2 yd run on 4th and 1 that kept the drive alive -- If Jacobs was stopped by the Patriots defenders, things may have turned out differently.

Sorry to say this. David Tyree is not a wide receiver -- the one-handed catch in the Super Bowl was basically his only successful catch as a Giants wide receiver. He played on special teams. The Giants kept Tyree out on injury in 2008 -- even though Tyree was healthy enough to play.

I'm curious -- Where would you play Tyree?

He's a vested veteran that is able to sign with any team as an UFA.

Sorry, Tyree is not a wide receiver -- he cannot catch the ball. The Giants may have used him a few times -- but the times they did Tyree dropped the ball. Experiment over. Tryee landed a job on special teams.

The Chiefs give up Tooms and you honestly think they would sign Tyree as WR?

Tooms won two games for the Giants in 2008 besides all the great catches he made week in and week out -- He was let go because of his age. And the fact that the Giants had too many young wide receivers. Kevin Boss became the new Plax and Tooms. Boss is 25, 6'6, 251 and catches everything thrown his way.

It is hard for me to believe that in five months Toomer forgot how to catch on the sidelines. And it is harder for me to believe that he would not have moved the chains on 3rd downs.

Maybe Tooms had trouble learning Haley's offensive system --

Honestly, I want to see a team sign Tyree -- just not the Chiefs.

Toomer, an older but still reliable Receiver in the NFL? Nah...

We're clamoring for a WR with one Superbowl catch and 650 career receiving yards.

Good grief...

You have to admit that 650 yards on a single catch is fucking impressive.

This makes sense.

We have 2 legitimate offensive linemen, a dozen solid offensive line possibilities are floating around on waivers.

We trade a draft pick for a couple of pieces of floatsom and are now going after a WR that is easily as bad as what we have. You 'upgrade' people crack me up - just because they played for someone else doesn't mean they're good. David Tyree sucks, he sucks just as badly as Jeff Webb, he just got lucky once.

Meanwhile, we evidently haven't put in a claim on several 'free' prospects, we IR'd our project guy, we're cutting legit NFL players (even if they're only STers) and we have arguably the worst 53 man in football (inarguably the worst OL in football).

This regime has not done a single thing to impress me from the moment Pioli was hired. From the HC hire, to our assistants, to free agency, to the draft and now to cut-downs; this new organization has been underwhelming at its very best.

Meanwhile Belichick is still bending teams over during the draft and in trades.

Open your eyes folks - Pioli didn't build those teams. This is a Carl offseason and nobody wants to wake up and say it.

You'll get flamed, but I couldn't agree more - though I do think that Tyree would be no worse than Copper, and is a damn good ST'er.

Had these moves been made with CP at the helm, this place would have been at DefCon 2 for most of the summer.

Instead, the same moves get a pass based solely on who's executing them.

Nah, a flaming would require people take their fingers out of their ears and make an argument.

There simply isn't one to be made here. Anyone willing to look at this objectively knows that they'd have killed Peterson for this offseason.

I said all along - we should've looked to the Steelers org. Those guys have done it with different coaches and different QBs. They re-load every single year. That's the franchise to follow.

The "Patriot Way" requires Bill Belichick. There's only one of those floating around.

I agree with most of it, especially concerning Pioli...:banghead:
Though I'm willing to give Haley a chance. He has without a doubt inherrited the least tallented Chiefs team after a head coaching change. I just can't believe that after the offseason, Pioli managed to keep it that way.

When Thigpen is playing and running around like an idiot with no clue what he's doing and just heaves the ball down the field like he does on every play, who better to have trying to make a miracle catch each time?
