    Once again, NO FREAKIN NORV TALK HERE! B4L has started a trillion of those already

    There's certain players who need to go, certain players who are immature and selfish and incapable of playing as a team. Or they just are incapable of performing. List em to get rid of them


    Nate Kaeding - enough with this crap he needs to go
    LaDainian Tomlinson - it's just the end of the road and I'm sorry
    Antonio Cromartie - cocky, immature, beaten like a drum constantly
    Vincent Jackson - for all the talent he just does not seem to be mature. Gates mentioned him by name
    Shawne Merriman - ineffective, put him out there for a trade
    Shaun Phillips - possibly remove him for the simple reason he's immature and he was named by Gates as such

    I'm a little torn concerning VJ, even with his antics yesterday. :icon_evil:

    I give Merriman another year to get fully healthy unless someone ponies up BIG. By that I mean matching at least the RFA tender, if that's what we do.

    You can add Cooper to the mix for me. Just another party boy in with the Cro/Shaun Phillips crowd. :tdown:

    cant argue with kaeding. not clutch at all.
    cant argue with LT and i really supported him last offseason.
    cro can be great and letting him go would be a huge mistake, same with VJ and phillips. and trading merriman when hes ineffective (probable bc he hasnt been healthy all yr, remember the knee surgery??) would be as smart as letting turner and brees walk for 3rd rounders that we wasted on WEDDLE (and hester). eric can split time at nickel with cason because thats what he is. he can not handle a 225 lb back like other great smaller safeties like troy can. i still dont understand the trade they made for him. FS is still a priority.

    Kaeding- his head is screwed up
    Cro- could have been great but started to listen to Deion Sanders
    LT- just hasn't got it anymore- would love to have him as a RB coach though

    The defense played their best game of the year- its a shame only half the team showed up (except Rivers and Gates)

    I'm not saying get rid of Jackson, or Phillips, although I agree with the frustration they had. But They were called out by other players by name.

    If I had to pick, I'd say Phillips before Jackson. Phillips trash talks all game, and a head butt after the play is just stupid on his part.

    Even Phil Simms said during the game VJ didn't need that penalty called against hiim.

    Also, Cormartie has really done nothing since his 10 Int season in 2007.

    Kaeding, for as great as he is in the regular season, is not good in the postseason for whatever reason.

    He is Mike Vanderjagt the 2nd.

    cro and phillips have problems that can be changed. you cant learn talent. maybe people forget that in the beginning/middle of the season when the D was getting killed phillips was the only one worth a **** that could get in the backfield (and create turnovers). youd be cocky too if you could play like that and was one of the few on the team that was.

    Is there a link so I can hear Gates interview????
    When I seen the headbutt by Phillips my heart sank, it was Deja Vu.

    V-Jack act's like a spoiled brat and needs to grow up.

    Cro can go.

    Tweety is cat bit.

    Merriman has a lot to prove so I'd give him another shot.

    Whoah, I feel completely different.

    I'd much rather have a lesser talented player whose smart, works his *** off, and has a strong desire to win over a great athlete who is stupid and lazy.

    Gates is a class act and will be a leader for this team with Rivers

    Our linebackers were shown up against the jets...I know Big Jamal wan't there, but there needs to be a big shake up there!

    Weddle deserves a second chance...but what was with that missed tackle of Greene!!! That cost us the game right there.

    Kaeding is terrible in the playoffs but the Bottom line is...we shouldn't be relying on the kicker to win us games!! Touchdowns win games...stopping teams on defence wins games too!

    Phillips - Immature & overrated.
    Castillo - Overpaid and a backup at best.
    Merriman - I'm borderline on this one. At 100% healthy, he may still be a force.
    Kaeding - He's had his chances.
    LT - Saddly the worst running back in the league now.
    Whitehurst - Just because he's useless and worthless.
    Cromartie - See Kaeding.
    Cooper - Dobbins and Siler are better.
    Hardwick - Mrucowski will be back.

    Watch that play again, and keep your eye on #31.

    Now try blaming Weddle.

    Hardwick is still a good centre in this league- no need to cut him

    I don't want to get rid of both Merriman and Phillips but at least now I'd be willing to keep merriman over phillips on the hope he'd show something next year. Hardwick shouldn't go. Cooper might just be trading from a position of strength. Castillo I semi agree but I don't know what we'd get for him

    In no particular order:

    LT -- End of the line, sad to say. See you in Canton.
    Kaeding -- Do I need to explain again?
    Cro -- A legend in his own mind. Pathetic tackler.
    Whitehurst -- Nothing against him, but will never get a shot here.

    What did Gates say about these guys?
    Was it just in reference to yesterday's actions or is there more?

    Kaeding - I'd rather have a guy that made 80% of his FGs during the regular season and playoffs. Kaeding is almost 50% in the playoffs.

    Cro- Trade him and hope we get a 2nd, get a physical corner (someone like Jammer).

    Cooper - Siler and Dobbins played better, plus we get rid of the party boy.

    Phillips - Depends if anyone is willing to trade a 3rd or 2nd for him.

    LT - Unless he's willing to take a significant pay cut needs to go. Man it sucks saying that.


    I'd give Merriman another year to turn it around.

    Nate Kaeding - head case along the lines of Vanderjack

    LaDainian Tomlinson -soory LT but your sun has set

    Antonio Cromartie - always near the pile looking down on it but never actually makes a tackle.... besides he gets beat like a rented mule on most passes

    Vincent Jackson - off field problems, stupid penalty, he'll expect TO type of $$$

    Shawne Merriman - he's become pretty pedestrian w/o the roids

    Shaun Phillips - AKA Drayton Florence Deux. What a shiithead

    I'd like to add:

    Michael Bennett- worn out and done

    Darren Sproles. He's gonna expect way more $$$$ than he's worth. Let's buy us a "real" NFL power back.

    Cooper- If he can't step up and lead at that ILB position then he needs to go. He looks out of position way too often.

    Phillips- Is a punk, all he does is party he is worthless get him out

    Merriman- I like him when healthy but he might cost too much, parties to much

    Cooper- Old, can't shed blocks, slow, parties with phillips.

    Cromartie- Scrub, can't tackle, scared, parties to much

    Kaeding- mentally unstable, get him out now

    LT- Only reason I want him to go is for him to get a ring with someone else while he still can. Thanks for everything LT!

    Vincent Jackson- Is a playmaker but is real stupid sometimes, give him a 2nd chance.

    Norv- Give him another shot, We all blamed Marty for 2006, but after watching this game i can see that the players are just idiots and chocked.

    Kaeding - head case under pressure.

    Cro - A legend in your own mind.

    Coop - Someone else can call the plays.

    LT - Was a good run, but he does not have it anymore.

    Phillips - **** talking moron.
