i dont know why we got rid of him. i loved him when he was here. one reason why our defense was so good back then . i say hes way better than thomas davis. there was a rumor of panthers trying to bring him back this year but guess they have too many lbs.

$. $. $.

pretty much that.

IIRC back then the front office basically had to decide whether to extend dan morgan or witherspoon - they decided to re-sign morgan. thus, spoon then moved on and signed a big deal with the rams, who wanted him to start at the MLB spot; that didn't work out, so he was shipped out of town a couple of seasons later...

Spoon has never really been a play maker. Solid and would always show up in the stat line, but rarely a difference maker.

Yes, this came down to money.

Better than Davis? I always liked spoon but he is not better than td. After last season Davis proved he is one of the better lBers in the league.

I don't know what your rationale for that is spoon was one ofthe best cover OLB when he left here. He made a ton of plays in coverage.

Don't forget it came down to choosing Spoon or Morgan, and we clearly made the wrong choice....
