Same here. A backup plan better be in place. And when I say "backup" plan, I don't mean use lifetime backups, either.

I say Good Riddance...I think Haley can step in and be his replacement. I mean they gave him the option to still make all his money and he turns it down? He's STUPID! He doesn't deserve a contract. He isn't going to get near that much anywhere else. I'm not saying he won't be missed, but they need that money for Champ, and if he isn't willing to take a cut from being the highest paid player this year when he obviously DOES NOT deserve it then I say he does not deserve to play for this team. They weren't asking for much, just a different way to make his money....

Although I am a bit worried about the Middle Run stopping ability of our D now... I have to agee. The Redskins were still offering BD the same money, just in incentive packages that would cause him to actually DESERVE it! He showed that he wasn't into working hard and wanted his money upfront and guaranteed.


Now... can we please sign Champ?

Seems he hasn't changed much from his cincinatti days. Hey, there's a thought-maybe Marvin will pick him up and rejoin him with Powell. I'm sure the fans at cincinatti would love to see big daddy back after all those kind words he had for them.

If management didn't back it up, with the likes of Big Daddy... no player would ever take them seriously again. HERE! HERE! FOR MANAGEMENT TOEING THE LINE.

Glad the FO stood their ground and didn't "punk out". Good. Maybe they know something that we don't (in reference to who they may be pursuing). My compass is pointing towards Chicago for some reason.

I hope they don't get desperate and trade a draft pick for some run of the mill player.

After reading that ESPN article, I feel a little better. Seems big daddy wasn't that great against the run after all. Although, with him out, Gardener was still in, so those numbers could be a little inflated.

Yeah, but BIG DADDY had one thing going for him... he was BIG. That alone will hurt a bit.

Uh, I don't like the situation at all at DT. At all. I understand the FO's position and it seemed like Big Daddy should have complied, but all that really matters is that we have a very substandard middle of the line. No one wants Champ signed more than I, but we've gotta use some of this additional cap space to replace Wilkinson. I wanna try to make a run this year and we won't be able to do so with the D Linemen on the roster now. I just don't see it. Optimism of some youngsters playing above their head is not good enough.
