I'd agree if he hadn't cost Buffalo a win against the Jets. If your celebrations directly lead to the other team scoring then there's a huge problem.

Aging? Eagles window to win it all isnt gonna stay open too long. He fits the need at MLB. And Brian Rolle isnt bad. Like his energy. As Posterized mentioned they suck at judging talent. I doubt they draft LB first rd. I will say the LBs projected in the first rd I'm not that high on vs previous years where Eagles could have landed a stud. Depending on the draft and how it plays, if not trade up? There might be prospects I like more than LB ones.

The kick-off being shanked wasn't his fault. It would be really short-sighted to get rid of him for a tiny issue that can be easily resolved.

I see some names on that list that NE should be interested in, but that's just a fleeting though. We don't sign notable free agents. Cliff Avril would be nice.

No it wasn't but the touchdown scored before the half was. It's not a tiny issue, stop it. He's pulling this shit in a contract year, what do you think he'll do when he's signed to a long-term contract?

The TD scored before the half was b/c the kicker shanked the KO, IIRC. It surely didn't help that they were 15 yards back, and you'd certainly like Stevie not to get flagged. But how many times he has been penalized this year? Twice? That is tiny. The team on the other side of the field in that game had to recruit a WR from the local prison yard, and their other starting WR is a cancerous prima donna they're having to get rid of. But Stevie Johnson is a big problem? Hell, as a Texans fan with nothing behind Andre Johnson, I would take his 1000 yards and 7 TD's if he got a flag after each of them.

He's a jackass. He brags and celebrates and half the time he's the reason they lose games because of his HUGE drops. Two come to mind, last year against the Steelers and this year against the Giants after his ignorant Plax imitation.

Moss could celebrate and get away with it because he got his job done and put up huge numbers. Johnson's just a jackass.

Carl Nicks, the prized 2012 FA.

I'm too lazy to go down the list, but 80% of those guys will be resigned.

Quickly though, I'd say Grimes, Mario, Finnegan and Colston all have a good shot of signing somewhere else. I think V-Jax stays along with all the major RBs.

Terrell Thomas? I'm sure he'll be resigned but I would be ecstatic if the Bucs nabbed him somehow. Shame he got injured this year.

He is OURS. If we let him go, I will be furious, especially since our entire secondary is useless apart from him and Webster

Dudes a baller. If I know that, the Giants know that obviously as well.

Just a pipedream. He'd look good in red and pewter though

I would like the Niners to go after Meachem, Hardwick, a CB, and some D-line depth, possibly a Right Guard as well.

Nobody looks good in pewter.

Could see Colston leaving and being replaced by Reggie Wayne. I remember them talking about that in the beginning of the season as Wayne is a New Orleans native. He's definitely lost a step but still had a good season considering who is throwing to him. He could maybe have a bit of a career resurgence with Brees.
