  1. ...and how old was Brent Grimes when we let him go? Seems like he has had a number of productive years since his time as a Falcon.
  2. I say pay the man if he isn't asking for something completely ridiculous. It's not worth quibbling over a couple of million dollars with the franchise QB. IMHO, defense + great QB wins championships and this franchise looked for its QB for a LONG time before stumbling onto Ryan and now has a defense that is making great strides.
  3. Teco is a gamebreaker and was IMHO a bigger contributor to our historic offense year before last than was Freeman.
  4. Trade Free... Keep Coleman.
  5. Free goes looking for contact, even when it's completely unnecessary. I don't think that doing that game after game will translate into a long NFL career.
  6. I would rather have Teco than Freeman myself. I think Freeman is a few concussions away from a severe drop in production.
  7. We paid the premium for Trufant, but I think Alford was the better corner last year at a much better price.
  8. For every Superbowl won by QBs falling in a non-top tier price range, there are 9+ won by top tier QBs or mid tier QBs paid like top tier.. Nick Foles has also had stretches in his career playing like a mid to top tier QB while in an Eagles uniform... think Eli Manning or Joe Flacco.
  9. Agreed. The fault of the defense last year was specifically in the 4th quarter. There were just no more clutch plays to be found. They obviously played great up to that point, as evidenced by holding them to 3 points along with the big pick 6.
  10. Trade Freeman and extend Coleman... Freeman's missed block last year cost us the Super Bowl... Freeman playing hurt (and being completely ineffective) may have cost us the same this year.
  11. Yep, their D stepped up at the end... ours by comparison was just complete gassed and nowhere to be found in the 4th quarter. I'm more salty about the fact we should have been in this game (our offense can't put up more than 15 points???) than last year's Super Bowl at this point.
  12. I'm less concerned about how long and more concerned about in how many areas will a large crowd get stuck together, shoulder to shoulder, front to back, with no where to go and all movement dropping to a snail's pace.
  13. Not only did Alford have a solid season (IMHO, our best CB this year), he also had a pick 6 in the Super Bowl AFTER signing his contract. What more production do you want from him?
  14. ... and the extra 3 million a year you're squabbling over as a "team-breaking" deal buys you what? Would you pick up a WR4, backup QB, or rotational d-line player? Framed another way, would you make a trade that involved sending Matt Ryan to the Redskins for Alex Smith + a rotational player... no way. I just don't think we are talking about the kind of marginal difference in money that we should consider risking losing a player who may soon be seen as the BEST QB in the NFL (A. Rogers is now injury prone IMHO, the young guns are unproven, and the other candidates are just old).
  15. Ryan will get his market value or just slightly below (if allowing for a team "friendly" deal) without a doubt. If $135 over 5 years is what Stafford got last year, then I think $145 over 5 years give or take 5 mil sounds about right to me . I'm just glad that money buys us a top 3 QB over the course of the contract instead of just a top 10 QB. That's my QB.
