Eagles new HC making a Jimmy Johnson type move. I'm sure he has everyone's attention now.

Someone will overpay for him based on what he did years ago. Smart GMs will look at how he did in the last 2 years both in man and zone looks and pass. He is not worth that much right now and he is being released because he thinks he is still an elite player. He wouldn't work for vet minimum this year unless he had no takers and this were September.

He is also not a good locker room presence from what I have read.

Which will be great for us because we all saw how Asomugha and Samuels played together

Is nice to think about in theory, but IIRC, the issue there was that Philly tried to move Asante to the nickel full-time and he wasn't having it, nor was it where he excelled.

I don't believe the Asomugha in Philly was the same Asomugha we came to know in Oakland

He is a lot better than what he showed in Philly, for whatever reasons he didn't show it who knows

Anyways, yeah we played Oakland in 2008 and Aso held Smitty to a catch for 9 yards...dude can ball

He's been below average the last two years, and I heard they moved him back to man coverage a majority of the time this year and it still didn't help. Going to Philly killed his reputation.

To be fair, Jake Delhomme was the starting quarterback of a playoff team then. That was a long time ago and a lot can change.

Smitty beat him a few times that game, Jake just couldn't get it to him.
