does anyone know what number thomas will wear?
here's hoping that the new 87 and the new 80 will have greater success than the guys who wore them before.

If we aren't going to retire a players number that has earned it, then at least we should hold on to it for a while.
#51 was retired.

there isn't one player that has been on the team for more than a couple years who i would consider HoF material. a couple have been close but in the long run they will only be footnotes. some might have to do with their surroundings but oh well.
imo, it's a sad state of affairs when there is even a thought that moose's #87 should be retired or even held back. might have been a fan favorite but i don't think we have all that high of a set of standards. i mean people got upset at losing an old and increasingly injury prone FB that took 8 years of playing before he turned anywhere close to relevant. dwayne jarrett had his own fan club.
it's a culture of mediocrity and john "all i want to be is a little better than average" fox did nothing to help it.

why are people so obsessed with retiring numbers when we haven't even gone 20 seasons yet
it's the same reason we complain about our fanbase being so small and the team getting so little recognition. same reason we complain about having so many jerseys of other teams in the BoA.
we just haven't been around long enough for us to have much of a history and we haven't done enough to warrant many people paying much attention to us. some of it stems from the owner. we want to be just like some other teams instead of creating our own legacy.
