Are you trying to tell me that you could have signed both Edge and Reggie? It was either 1 or the other because Edge didn't want to be franchised yet again. You didn't have the money to sign both to extensions because the money was tied up...it was either one or the other. Peyton Manning hasn't the second biggest QB contract in football..just a little bit behind Mike Vick. He's a great player and deserves it..but when you have that much money tied up into just 1 player, it makes it hard to string together a bunch of solid defensive aquisitions to make a good defense. Simon and McFarland are starts..but you are going to need a ton of signings of decent defensive Vets. I don't even think Simon will ever be playing football again.
